This one is sold, however, I have a few more on hand.  They may vary slightly since they are original.   If you feel you would like to purchase one similar to this let me know at:

I normally charge extra for commissioned pieces but for Christmas I will be charging my regular price for these impressionistic Nativity paintings. They are signed and dated on the back and being original, they will vary.

Horses Autumn Field Impressionism Daily Painting Heidi Malott

"Autumn Grazing"
6x6" oil on primed masonite

The horses seemed quite content in the pasture on this crisp autumn afterrnoon.  I enjoyed painting the gray/blue greens with the warm hues of the dry grasses.

I was surprised when I downloaded this, that I don't have many horse paintings posted.  There are plenty of chickens and cows but horses, not so much, yet...

Autumn Fall Colors Impressionist Oil Painting Heidi Malott

"Early November"
6"x6" oil on primed masonite board

Hey, I made it into the studio today.  Had a busy weekend of yard cleanup.  So many leaves, acorns and walnuts to move.  I am always a little sad to put the garden to bed for the long winter.  First summer in a long time that we didn't get many tomatoes.  Good thing I still have a few jars canned up from last season.

Oh well, back to today's post.  I am always so inspired to paint during autumn.  The colors are amazing.  I feel a bit out of practice, but it felt so good to pick up those brushes.  One thing about all those glorious fall colors, it is easy to get overwhelmed and go all out with bright hues everwhere.  I love the challenge of holding back in areas, letting toned down color prop up those high notes.  Let them sing.

Happy Day!

Do You Miss Me Yet? I Certainly Missed You! -Heidi Malott

This painting previously posted 9/25/11

Well, I think it has been quite a long time since I have posted here.  So long, in fact, that I couldn't remember my passwords, Hah!  No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.  Just out of the cyber world for a while.  I just felt that I better poke my head in here and say Hello and let you know I am doing just fine.  The good thing about painting is that it will always be there when you find the time to pick up a paint brush.  But, and yes, I just started the sentence with that, you can't get those days back of your children's fleeting childhood.  So, I guess that is the main reason I have not been in the studio.  I multi-task quite a bit, but, when I focus on things there are many things that fall to the way side.  Unfortunately, painting is one of them, sigh.  Painting takes my full concentration and I don't want to half commit to painting.  So for the last year + I have had to walk past the door to my studio.  I do miss it so much and that is usually a sign for me that I will actually pick up a paintbrush very soon.  

So please, let me know how you are doing.  I would love to hear from you and hopefully I will be posting a painting on occasion.  

God Bless!

Snow Sledding Child and Dog Heidi Malott

(previously painted)

Stay warm today!  I am back in the studio and hope to post some new work for 2013.  My family started the new year under the weather.  Nothing too severe but never seemed to end.  I injured one of my fingers the other day requiring 4 stitches!  Thankfully not my painting hand.  Boy oh boy do we know how to kick of the year, huh?  It is all up from here, cheers!
