Treasured Memories, seashore, mixed media


"Treasured Memories"

This is the third painting in my new series: found objects and mixed media.

I added some of the seashells my grandchildren found with me.
The clear beads hardly show in the photo. Wanted extra sparkle in the splash.  When the light hits it at different angles it shines.

Not sure if I will sell any of these yet or not.  Will make a few more and then decide, so far they are too precious!

Size: 8 x 8 inches
Mixed media on cradled hardboard


Happy Thanksgiving!

Spilling Over Again, abstract, mixed media


"Spilling Over Again"


This is a take off from an older abstract painting called "Spilling Over." It is part of a new series of mixed media paintings.  This one has aquarium stones, beads, and tiny pearls. 

I'm experimenting with adding found objects and/or impasto techniques (thick raised texture to paint over.) 

I did some of this in college, but that was a few years ago.... 

Starting small, and learning so much about gel medium, thick gesso, and modeling paste!  Way too cool.

This one is framed in a black shadow box.

Mixed media
5 x 7 without frame
8 x10  overall dimensions

Second Look, Florida art, plein air


"Second Look" 
© Fawn McNeill 2011



This is the third painting I did at the Adams Ranch on location a few years ago. I had packed up most of my gear, and then looked back at this view from the other side of the path before I loaded up my easel. I was tired and ready to leave, but it was so beautiful, and I wanted to at least get this one started. So I went back and unloaded everything! Got a great lay-in, and almost finished it on location...... I touched up a few things and added a little more detail when I got home. I love the way it turned out! 


Enjoy!

Rocky Shore, plein air, birds


"Rocky Shore"  © 2007



I recently repainted part of this older plein air painting.  (Done on location.) 

The water level was very low, and the rocks made interesting patterns. It was challenging to say the least!  

The little blue heron stayed off to the far right most of the morning, and just before I finished up, the water turkey (anhinga) poked his head up a few times (near the bottom).

I loved all the colors and the rhythm in this painting, but I went back and toned down some of the rocks, mostly on the left and a little near the top, in order to direct the viewer's eye toward the bird on the right.

Flaming Sunset, poinciana, impasto, Florida Art


"Flaming Sunset"

These royal poinciana trees are gorgeous, and really over painted.  Not hard to see why. 
I found this old palette knife painting that needed a few more corrections (it has sat around my studio for a year or so).  I have done a lot of these, so I wanted to do something a little different this time. I built it up with gesso and impasto effects, so the raised flowers really jump off the painting! Very interesting texture and color contrast.

Spring Shoreline,colorful morning


"Spring Shoreline"
(original demo)
11x14 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This was the first of 2, painted this past April.  I created it as a guide, then did the step-by-step painting during class for the second one.  Lots of strong colors, which I love to paint.

The challenging part was getting the waves to curve on the beach,  but everyone captured it nicely.  Each painting turns out unique and different, as I encourage my students to move things around, and use their favorite colors.

$325.00, ready to frame

Healing Waters, spring stream with flowers, summer sale

"Healing Waters"


This is an original demo.  Painted it for an art class, and have used it for a couple of painting classes. That just means there are a few others that are similar, that were created during class.  This was the first, and one of my all time favorites. 

 I am using it to launch my annual summer sale!  (Sold 6 of these demonstration paintings last year!)

Happy 4th of July!!!!!

Three is Not a Crowd, gumbo limbo trees, plein air painting


"Three's not a Crowd"
(Gumbo limbo trees)

Did a paintout back in March, never had a chance to post this one!  Been swamped at the studio, so that is a good thing.

This is an original plein air (created on location) from Old Fort Park in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Was interested in the odd colors and the way these trees seemed to be dancing together.  It was a lovely day.
