Lavender Flight, mixed media, knife painting


"Lavender Flight"

This is fun little abstract painting is part of my newest series of mixed media art.  I added some charms and beads for that extra sparkle. For some reason these mixed media paintings tickle me. I love the way the beads show up at different angles of viewing which makes it grab your attention.  (Click on the image for a larger view.)

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).

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 finally I was satisfied with this layout.  The butterflies actually made me laugh!

Butterfly Garden, plein air painting

"Butterfly Garden"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Sold


Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall.  It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it.  This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush!  She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing.  Too cute!

Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!

Passing Through, rainbow landscape, knife painting




"Passing Through"

The first one like this was on watercolor paper for my kid's summer art classes. The inspiration came from Van Gogh. It was done with a paint brush and didn't have much detail.  I liked the idea, however, and painted it again on hardboard with a palette knife.  Lots of fun!  Then some of my older students painted one like it with a palette knife too. I added the butterflies to finish it up.

Thanks for looking!

Flutter By, landscape with butterfly

"Flutter By" 

Created as a class demonstration from one of my student's photos. I left out some of the flowers, and exaggerated the hills. I also placed the butterfly at a different angle.  This  is one of the few demos that turned out nice right off the bat.  Didn't have to add very much to it to finish it up.

Butterfly Wishes, abstract palette knife painting

"Butterfly Wishes"



About This Painting:
This is the first of a series of 4 palette knife butterflies I did a few years ago.


I wanted to make it look like it was moving quickly, so I used a painting knife for a more abstract affect. 

The symbolism is in the colors: green is for growth and wealth, orange is for warmth and open arms, and yellow is for joy.

This little painting is loaded with thick paint and bold colors. 

Enjoy!

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
Price: $170.00 USD

Elaborate frame, see below

Florida Sunshine, viceroy butterfly

"Florida Sunshine"


About This Painting:
Painted this from some photos I took down at the lake. The fruit was actually a load of grapefruits that a truck had lost on the side of the road. This butterfly was drinking nectar from one of the grapefruits that was busted open. It would flutter around and then come back for another taste. I was truly taken by the strong sunlight and all the bright warm colors!
Happy Easter!
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 6 in X 6 in (15.2 cm X 15.2 cm)

Lavender's Sway 3, Abstract Flowers, Daily Painting


" Lavender's Sway 3"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

While zooming in, I noticed how the light made these flowers look like squiggly blobs of glorious color, so I exaggerated the effect and had a blast with all that thick paint. I added the butterflies for contrast. This is one for EBSQ Art-- August Flower of the Month contest.
