A Real Stand Out Acrylic 7 x 5 by John K. Harrell


$125.00 + $10.00 S/H




We don't have little guys like this here in Denver, but close cousins without the extra splash of hair on the ears. Extra hair or not they all share the playful characteristic which I find always entertaining.

These little rascals are so much fun to watch. My garden is full of them and when I need to relax and decompress I can always count on these playful critters to bring me back to peaceful zen place.

Observance Acrylic 24 x 30 by John K. Harrell




I have created a series of paintings using the human figure in multiples to create some very strong compositions. I designed the series to have both a traditional approach as well as an abstracted counterpart.

Pencil Change 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


$125.00 + $10.00 S/H




Today's piece is another in the pencil still life series. They are simple compositions but I think they make pretty interesting paintings!

Sanfrancisco Magic Acrylic 60 x 36 by John K. Harrell


When ever I get the opportunity to travel to different cities I take full advantage of my camera and capture fantastic scenes to paint. This is no exception. Walking around the streets of San Francisco in the rain was immensely entertaining and very inspiring. Not only do the reflections tell a story but the perspective of this piece takes you on an adventure as well.

This painting is available at Brushstrokes Studio Gallery.

Key to Drawing 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


$125.00 + $10.00 S/H





I find inspiration from all kinds of things. As I was painting today I looked down on my painting table and noticed how the key ring and pencils were laying on it and I thought that would be fun to paint. This is unusual for me because a still life isn't usually something I am inspired to paint. So, here is the result. I painted a few of them because I was having so much fun. Who new? Enjoy!

Beached 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell

 $125.00 + $10.00 S/H





Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a beautiful scenic painting.  The battered row boat was beached while the tide was out. There was just enough water around to create some nice reflections and a gem of a painting!

Quaint Italy 5 x 7 Acrylic painting by John K. Harrell






$125.00 + $10.00 S/H

This quaint home in the hillside of Tuscany was bathed in the late afternoon light. That time of day is my favorite for capturing the unique Tuscany feeling I experienced everywhere I had the pleasure of visiting in Italy.

Bear Cub Acrylic 7 x 5 by Colorado Daily Painter John K. Harrell




SOLD

Living in the wonderful state of Colorado I have had the privilege of experiencing so much of its wildlife. On one of my adventures to the Rockies I came upon a family of Black bears, a mother and her two cubs.  When I caught my breath and got my faculties together I snapped a few pictures and got out of there as fast a possible.  When I had returned to my car and looked at my pictures I was so excited to see that I had taken some great ones. The painting above is inspired from those pictures.

African Beauty 5 x 7 Acrylic Wildlife Paining by John K. Harrell


SOLD

I just enjoy painting animals of all kinds, wild or domesticated doesn't matter to me.  There is something freeing about tackling this subject matter because I have an inherent emotional attachment to these models. I was given the picture of this lovely pachyderm by a wonderful client who took it while on safari in Africa.

Passenger 6 x 6 Acrylic Urban Landscape of Venice by John K. Harrell


SOLD

One of the most intriguing observations about Venice was the serenity of the city. With everybody using boats in one form or another for transportation there wasn't the constant roar of motor vehicles in the atmosphere. This peacefulness lead me to capture some of the boats in my paintings.

This is a scene from Paris. I was just trying to capture the essence of the scene in the cafe. Both the individuals were just so relaxed enjoying each others company.
That sums up most of my experience in Paris.

Element vs Man 6 x 6 Acrylic Urban Landscape by Denver Artist John K. Harrell



SOLD


This is another loose interpretation of an urban composition in Denver Colorado. Using both the hard edges of the street car and the detail of the figure to off set the looseness of the back ground make for an electric painting.

Urban Outing 6 x 6 Acrylic Urban Landscape by Colorado Daily Painter John K. Harrell




SOLD

An energetic composition from the beautiful city of Sacramento California. I enjoy using the figures as elements of realism in an otherwise abstracted portrayal.
