broccoli oil painting

Broccoli: the end of the oil paintings

Broccoli #2, oil on canvas, 20 x 20 cm, ©2012 Julie Galante. Available on Etsy. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve put away the oil paints until after the move. Today I’m scanning in the last couple oil daily paintings that I have. They’re dry enough to be listed in my online shop, which I’ll keep […]

Radishes, original oil painting

Wrapping up 2011

Radishes, 20 x 20 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] 2011 has been a wonderful year for me and my art career. I’ve painted more than ever. My paintings have found their way onto the walls of so many new collectors. I’m ending the year full of ideas for future projects. Things are […]

chili peppers palette knife painting

Day 26: chili peppers

Chili Peppers, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] I felt like doing something a little different today, and that ended up being this palette knife painting of chili peppers. For the most part I used the colors straight out of the tubes. I was going for simple shapes and bright colors. […]


Dumpling squash painting

Day 24: Thanksgiving dumpling squash

Dumpling squash, 13 x 18 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Original painting available for sale on Etsy.

Painting: Brussels Sprouts on the stalk

Day 21: Brussels sprout snake

Brussels sprout stalk, 24 x 18 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. I never really thought about how brussels sprouts grew until a stand at our local farmers market started selling stalks of them. This painting is just the very top of the stalk. The whole thing is a few feet long and has […]

Christmas painting onions and garlic

Day 18: Christmassy onions and garlic?

Onions & garlic & greenery, 24 x 18 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Hey, if the Germans can use pickles as Christmas tree decorations, why can’t I use garlic and onions? OK, perhaps it would not be the sweetest-smelling Christmas tree on the block. These pine branches are fun to paint. Perhaps I’ll […]


oil painting crepes and salad

Day 11: crepes and salad

Crepes and salad, 18 x 24 cm, oil on hardboard, ©2011 Julie Galante. Original painting available on Etsy.  Brunch the other day – a colorful salad, a mushroom crepe, and and espresso macchiato. Tasty. November is Art Every Day Month! I’ll be posting a new small painting here each and every day. After they have had […]

Original oil painting: Onions #3

Daily painting: red and yellow onions

Onions (red and yellow), 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] Not every single one of my paintings has an Oktoberfest theme these days, although it is starting to feel that way. I’m still fitting in the occasional still life or cityscape here and there. Onions are one of my favorite […]

Daily Painting: kohlrabi is ugly

Kohlrabi study, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] Kohlrabi isn’t the most attractive vegetable in the world, is it? But it was fun to paint. In other news, my first newsletter finally went out! You can check it out (and sign up to receive future newsletters by email) here.

Daily painting: dangerous veggies

Study: Broccoli, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] Here in Germany we are in the middle of a mysterious outbreak of scary mutant killer E.coli infections. Even though it has been more than a month since it started, no culprit has been identified, although we’re being told to cook all vegetables before […]

Daily painting: zucchini study

Study: zucchini, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] This week I’ve been getting back into the rhythm of painting with a series of daily paintings, including several small vegetable studies.
