Always Wanted a House on a Hill
16 x 8 Oil on canvas
24 x 18 soft pastel on Ampersand pastel board.
13th Annual Paint Historic Waxahachie Plein Air Competition and Exhibition – 2018
I was really surprised to win First Place in this competition with the piece below, titled “Blue Door”.
I only painted a total of 4 pieces this year during the event. The other three works are below.
They all are available at the Art on the Square Gallery on the square in Waxahachie. Stop by and check it out. Great restaurants on the square as well!
Sims Library is an old and beautiful piece of architecture both inside and out. The large lawn is covered in huge trees which shade most of the well kept grass.
I am very fond of “Street Tacos”… so I painted a food truck I saw down on the Trinity River near downtown Dallas. I have also painted the Margret Hunt Hill Bridge which is near that spot as well.
Taco Moon was honored with a First Place in Oils in Grand Prairie’s 2017 Annual Juried Art Show & Sale, on display at the Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie, Texas. It also won a Merchandise Award at the RCAS 51st Regional Juried Art Exhibition and Sale.
Welcome to Steve Miller Studios. This site is in the process of being moved over from www.JourneyInOils.com. I work mostly in Oils and Pastels, and you will find both Studio and Plein Air work here. I also work on commission to produce pet portraits, house portraits or your favorite place. Contact me to ask about pricing and the process.
The subject matter in this body of work consist of places I have visited, from Texas to Georgia to Maine. Landscape, Architecture, People or Animals…the scope of the work is wide. If you have any questions, please contact me.
I use quality materials, such as Winsor Newton Artists’ Oil Colour on canvas and panels. Most of the pastel works are created on Ampersand Pastelbord, using quality pastels like Sennelier Soft Pastels, Schmincke Soft Pastels, Rembrandt Soft Pastels, Prismacolor NuPastels and Cretacolor.
Limited edition Giclee prints on canvas, reproduced by Coupralux Giclee Printmaking Studio of Dallas are available for a very few works.
