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).

Full Bloom, Tulips, mixed media, impasto painting


"Full Bloom"


Besides the wonderful contrast in value and color, this painting has thick impasto with added gems for a little sparkle from different angles of view!

News Event:  I will be in Sebring for an art show, and will have some prices reduced for the show!  (Lake Placid Art and Fine Crafts Show, on Hwy 27 at the Agri-civic center, just North of Hwy 98)

Honestly, I have not been so inspired in years. This new series of adding found objects, and/or using modeling paste and other materials to build up the texture is challenging and creates so many unique and interesting effects. I think I have finished close to 20 paintings in the last 3 months! Some of them have been sitting around unfinished for over a year!

About this painting:
9 x 12 x 1.5 inches
Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Sides are painted, so framing is optional
$350.00

Eternal Joy, angel, butterflies, mixed media painting


"Eternal Joy"

        This is inspired from a small painting I did years ago called "Endless Song".  This one is less abstract, and the colors are lighter.  I used thick gesso to build up the hair, wings, and plants for an impasto feel.  Also added beads to the headband and the belt, as well as on the gown.  The 3 metal butterflies were the most fun, because they fit so well with the colors I had already painted.  It is like a nice surprise when you see them. Adding a little iridescent paint on the wings, gown and above the head gives it a nice shimmer. When the painting is viewed at different angles, some things really catch your eye.
      Can't explain how tickled I was when I added the extras, I felt like a kid.  I played with  many combinations, until I was finally satisfied with this layout.  The butterflies actually made me laugh! 

Original Art, 
11 x 14 inches
Mixed Media on Hardboard

Little Critters, azaleas, flowers, mixed media


"Little Critters"


Part of my new series of adding found objects to my paintings: This is actually an older painting that I reworked.  First I made some corrections to the painting, then added a few beads and gems.  What a delight when the gems reminded me of tiny frogs!  After that I added some glitter paint to tie it all together.  This one makes me laugh!

The painting continues on the sides, so framing is optional.

A little late, but I was very sick over the past week, didn't get to post these...
I did feel better on Christmas morning, and was so very thankful to get to enjoy my family!

Added glitter paint, and lots of it on the ornaments.  I am enjoying the way they stand out when the light hits them a certain way.  My students are loving it and coming up with some amazing ideas!  I find myself joining them and feeling like a little girl as my youngest children get so excited when we start adding the extra bling.

Hope you had a great Christmas, and that your new year is full of love and many blessings!

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!


Media: acrylic on hardboard (Framed)
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)

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. 

8 x 10 inches
