About This Painting:
Very fun little palette knife painting, from my Montana memories. Totally made it up out of my head! Usually I use photos from my visits home, but this time I just wanted to see if I could do it. Quite proud of the results! I love the thick textures I get with the palette knife!

Dawning Desire, orange roses


"Dawning Desire"

About This Painting:
This is a commissioned piece. This is the last in a series of roses. Each one has symbolism in the meaning of the rose and in the colors. For example the color yellow stands for joy, and the yellow rose is for friendship. The color purple is for mystery and the unknown, or spiritual realms. So the yellow rose on a purple back ground was called "Enchanting Joy!"
My client has to be given credit for these ideas. He has challenged me and we have come up with a whole series of wonderful roses!
An orange rose is for new directions, a new job, a graduation, the beginning of a relationship, etc... and blue is for calm or peace, so 'Dawning Desire" is about the anticipation of good things.
I have really enjoyed this series!
Thanks for stopping by!

Good Luck, Hawaiian Ti plant


"Good Luck"
About This Painting:
This Ti Plant grows in my front yard. It is also called the Good Luck plant! It has been mowed over, blown down and finally was saved as a cutting. It came back a little shorter, but very lovely. I was drawn to the reds and pinks. When the sun hits it it looks fake!
This painting is called 'En Plein Air', which means it was done outside, on location.
Ready to frame.

Sunny Shadows, plein air painting

"Sunny Shadows"

Egret study, palette knife painting

"Egret study"


About This Painting:
I am starting a larger painting that is similar to this. Just playing with different ideas, and working on the color scheme. I love using the palette knife for the texture too, but the larger painting will be done in a different style. I saw a lot of egrets and great blue herons at the lake the other day, and the weeds were all different colors. The birds got lost in it all, and the photos didn't turn out very good, so I tried to make improvements in this painting!
Ready to frame.

Orchid Study, plein air


Orchid Study
About This Painting:
Got out this morning and painted these lovely orchids that my husband grows. This is actually the second try, as the first one got to detailed in the background and took away from the flowers, So I simplified the background and then repainted the orchids!
It was a wonderful morning, cool and breezy for a change. I was enjoying myself and then just as I was finishing the second try, my husband starts weed-eating! There were bugs and grass flying everywhere. So I called it quits and helped with the yard work.
Thanks for looking!

Spider Lily Morn, plein air painting


"Spider Lily Morn"
About This Painting:
I got out very early this morning, to paint before the heat is unbearable. The spider lilies are blooming everywhere, and these had a nice tree behind them to set them off. I darkened the colors of the sky too, as the sunlight began to shine right on the lilies. The colors were amazing.
I had a client ask me if they were real, she said they look like something from outer space!
Painted en plein air, alla prima. (Out doors, all in one session.)
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 6 in X 6 in (15.2 cm X 15.2 cm)
Price: $250 USD
