A Crab's Life, rocks and waves, mixed media


"A Crabs Life"

This is a take off from a painting I did years ago at the Bathtub Beach in Stuart, Florida.  It is part of my new series of mixed media art.  I zoomed in and abstracted it a little compared to the first painting ("Rock and Roll").

I used the large aquarium stones this time, with beads that catch the light at different angles. I painted a little crab in the rocks, which was totally spontaneous.  It made me laugh when I put the red beads on him for eyes.

The splash was built up in layers of paint.  I used more gel medium this time instead of the thick heavy gesso because the gel medium dries clear.  It also dries shiny, which was good for sparkle on the water.

This painting has been through 3 phases over a few years. 
First it was just a calm sea with soft sunset colors and a few clouds.  Then I added stronger colors and more detail, including bigger waves.  Finally, I added the girl and decided it was finished!

I have just made it available in print!

Enjoy

Broken Bricks Mural, ocean scene



I have been wanting to paint stones or bricks (or something) behind the stove for a few years now.  Once I got started it was really fun.  I decided to break the bricks open so I could look at more than just bricks on the wall while cooking...


My husband wanted birds, so I added the water and some birds!

 Hard to see the angels, but there are two angels in the clouds.  That was my favorite part.


I made the wall look like broken plaster around the bricks to tie it all together.  Just sealed it with two coats of clear sealer.

Beach Sunset, mural


Got most of this mural done in my guest bathroom last fall.  Just added some more finishing touches and decided it is finally complete.   I love the way you can see the palm in the mirror in this shot.

(We've been making repairs and painting walls at my house.  I have discovered muscles in places I didn't know I could have muscles! Not fun at all.  So I had to get some murals going in order to help my feelings!  I have a new one in the kitchen too.  I'll post it soon. Want to make sure I'm finished first.)

The colors are much more intense than the images show.  It was fun!

Florida Sunshine, butterfly


"Florida Sunshine"

One of my favorites! I just made this small painting available in giclee (canvas) prints!

The butterfly landed on the grapefruit, which had a crack in it, and the light was making him glow.  It was captivating!  I took a lot of pictures at different angles until he finally flew off.

The original is sold.

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



This is from last year. It 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.  Finished it up at home.

At Riverside, Egret, Palm, Indian River, Florida


"At Riverside"
(Stuart, Florida)
© 2018
Here is an older one I just love! Used some pictures I took during a paint-out at Riverside Park.  I walked all over the park for an hour in the morning, soaking in all the inspiring views before doing some sketches.

This egret was wading along the shore, and I got some pretty good photos of him catching fish.  I liked this one where he jumped up a few times.  

This palm tree was one of two jetting out over the water.  The other palm was bent and crooked, but it was hard to get a good photo.

Lifting Fog, cardinal, turkey, deer, Florida art


Bring home "Lifting Fog,"  an original acrylic painting 
by Fawn McNeill.  
Memories of Florida's back country delivered to your door!

I worked on this painting off and on for a couple of years.  Just finished it in January, 2019, when I added the cardinal.  He was the whole point to begin with, so I was glad to finally put him in there!

The cardinal kept posing for me while I was scouting the area for a good place to set up my easel.  I did several small plein air (on location) studies farther down this muddy road.  I actually got my shoes wet taking photos of this old fence!

16 x 20 inches
Acrylic on canvas
Framed in a unique rustic custom frame (see below)

Gentle Rain, hibiscus, mixed media, knife painting


"Gentle Rain"

This is a larger painting in my new mixed media series.  I built the texture up with thick heavy gesso this time, instead of modeling paste.  Also added some aquarium stones and gems.  I gave the drips of water a little extra shine too.  

Very exciting! The colors and the sparkle are hard to see in this photo, but when the light hits the painting at different angles, they jump out at you!

20 x 20 x 1 3/4  inches
Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Art Show


Had a great show at the end of January! (Been so busy that I didn't get a chance to post it.)

Showed some of my new mixed-media series, and some of my older originals. I  had such a large variety going on that I didn't think I would be in the mix to win an award.  Often times judges like to see a coherent body of work.

I sold some art, won a blue ribbon, and shared my testimony to many who asked about the meaning behind the paintings.  It was an awesome day.

Thank you Lake Placid Art League!  It was encouraging to be so well received by so many people!


Here are some pictures, Enjoy! (Click on an image to enlarge it).
