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.

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

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)
$1,500.00

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 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!

Original Art, 
20 x 20 x 1 3/4  inches
Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Canvas
$1,200.00
The deep sides are painted. Framing is optional.

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!

11 x 14 inches

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.
