About This Painting:
I had painted a small rough draft on hardboard in acrylic before I started the large abstract "Summer Splendor" (See below). So I painted over it here to create a new one. Used a palette knife this time, and used loads of paint! I was mostly just playing around with some new color ideas.
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
Price: $300 USD

In the photo below, you can see the small watercolor painting to the left, which I used as a reference to create this wonderful acrylic abstract. Gallery Wrap Canvas has a deep edge, and the painting continues on the sides.

Summer's Glory, Great Blue Heron

"Summer's Glory"
About This Painting:
I have a few minor corrections to make, and I may add more flowers, but I like the overall affect. I especially like all the warm colors next to the cool grays and black. I saw this heron on Taylor Creek a few weeks ago, and took some nice photos. He just stood there and posed for me! Then I saw a Great White Egret near these day lilies just a few days later. So I thought I would combine the two ideas for this painting.
This is done on a Gallery Wrap Canvas, the painting continues on the sides and there is no need for a frame.

Media: acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Size: 6 in X 12 in (15.2 cm X 30.5 cm)

On the Way, Fish Eating Creek


"On the Way"



About This Painting:
My Husband and I went out in a boat, on Fish Eating Creek in Lake Port, Florida. While he fishes, I take pictures! I was watching this storm come closer. It got darker than this, but the sun was coming from behind me, and the bank was lit up... very surreal. The birds were everywhere, so I painted a few of them in this small composition. I really like the contrast of the cloudy sky against the sunlit bank.

Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on gessoed mat-board
Size: 7.25 in X 5.25 in (18.4 cm X 13.3 cm)

Rough draft for Endless Praise

Rough draft for Endless Praise

About This Painting:
Combined different ideas from previous paintings as I created this little study. I have touched it up some and added more color, but it was the rough idea I used to develop "Endless Praise" in a larger size. (See my last post.)
The challenge was in using a square format here, and a rectangular format for the final painting. I like having these little rough ideas to work from, as I have already worked out most of the problems and the composition comes together nicely.
Thanks for stopping by!

Endless Praise, palette knife angel

"Endless Praise"


About This Painting:
This is another commissioned painting. Combined the idea of an earlier painting of an angel kneeling with the colors of "Endless Song Too" (from a couple of weeks ago). This palette knife painting is full of texture which adds an abstract feel to the composition. I really do love all the bright colors too.
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 12 in X 16 in (30.5 cm X 40.6 cm)

Summer Breeze

"Summer Breeze"


About This Painting:
Painted this little study of a Bayou yesterday from some of my photos I took up in North Florida. I was visiting my son and his new wife for the Forth of July. We had a great time!
I was interested in the bright pink flowers growing everywhere! and the dead tree was a perfect backdrop to the scene. There were actually two dead trees, but the second one was off to the far left and not much of it was visible in this cropped scene.
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
Price: $350.00

Set Free, Mr. Lincoln rose


"Set Free"
Media: acrylic on canvas
Size: 12 in X 16 in (30.5 cm X 40.6 cm)
About This Painting:
The name of this large wonderful red rose is a Mr. Lincoln rose. So odd, I thought to have such a name for a type of flower. This image doesn't show all the subtle changes of reds and dark pinks that it has. I do love the symbolism this rose has, so I painted a light blue back drop to set off the reds. Happy Fourth of July!

Sorry, This painting is NOT AVAILABLE
I am accepting commissions, however, if you want something similar in a different size.
