Lobster dinner. "In progress".

This painting is a 36x36.  There is a lot going on, so it is taking a while.  I am enjoying the puzzle-like process of painting the tablecloth and it's reflections.  I wonder if lobsters are "beautiful" to everyone, or if it is just to me and my fellow New Englanders.

Thomas Moser - Boston

I have a solo show at the Thomas Moser showroom in Boston!  Now through the end of September.  
This is one of the new paintings for that show "Gold Country" 36x48 oil on canvas.
It has been a busy year for me.  My website was just updated with all the new work.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Cherry Blossoms "in progress"

Hope to finish this one tonight.  Wish me luck.  I need to finish three this week!

Peony "in progress"

The newest peony.  36x36.  Lots of big ones in the works right now.  My website has been updated with many new ones too:  www.neileyharris.com

Pigs. On the wall. Watching me.

I had a blast painting these guys.  Their skin is full of colors, especially early in the morning.  I can't wait to see the reaction to this painting when it goes on the wall in May.  When a painting makes you giggle.  To me, that is a success.

On the Fence 6x6"

Baby pygmy goats.   Kids actually.  
It's a double dose of cute.  

Peonies in progress

This is my third day working on this one.  It is 30x48".  I haven't painted a peony this size in a while.  I plan to have a half dozen of these for a solo show at the Thomas Moser showroom, July 17th!  I am so excited, I am working day and sometimes night to have killer work for Cafe This Way in May too.  It is going to be a great year!!

New tree in progress

It is snowing out.  Actually, it's a Nor'easter. March 12.  So the only thing on my mind right now is summer.
Thus, this big beautiful tree.  I think I will appreciate this summer a bit more than all the summers past!  It is hard to walk away from these tree paintings once I start them because they are so fun to paint.

Lily "in progress"

This is a 30x40".  It is feeling a bit to much like a rainbow at this point, but I am confident that I will be able to bring it all together when I paint the rest of the paler values in the petals.  Whew, what a full day of painting.  It feels good though!
