Timeless Moments, sunset beach, seashells


Timeless Moments
"His mercy endures forever." Psalm 136

Finished this painting a few months ago.  I haven't posted anything here in a long time (posting on my website and busy at work, which is a good thing).  

This painting is full of thick impasto layers. I also added actual seashells, sea glass, sand dollars, and two hand sculpted clay items (a turtle in the foam, and a starfish on the shore.)  The clay items are a new element. I truly enjoyed creating them and painting them after adhering them to the canvas.  I'm using paper clay, which is clay with paper fibers added to make it stronger.  It is a lightweight clay and is something I want to explore further.

I was going through some personal issues when I painted this and thought about how somethings seem to transcend time. Some memories are as fresh as yesterday even though they happened years ago! Some things can happen in no time and seem like forever.  This led to the concept that we make time, it is in us and not just something that happens to us.  We choose to enjoy it, use it wisely, or do nothing with it.  So all of that is  flowing through this painting as the woman contemplates the vastness of it all.

I hid an angel in the sky, but not in the clouds per say, it is in reverse. The blue of the sky is in the shape of an angel by the clouds around it.  Makes it harder to find, but I wanted to make it bigger than the small ones I usually paint in the clouds.

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!

Three is Not a Crowd, gumbo limbo trees, plein air painting


"Three's not a Crowd"
(Gumbo limbo trees)



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

Was interested in the odd colors and the way these trees seemed to be dancing together.  It was a lovely day.  Finished it up at home.

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.

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!

Flaming Sunset, poinciana, impasto, Florida Art


"Flaming Sunset"

These royal poinciana trees are gorgeous, and really over painted.  Not hard to see why. 
I found this old palette knife painting that needed a few more corrections (it has sat around my studio for a year or so).  I have done a lot of these, so I wanted to do something a little different this time. I built it up with gesso and impasto effects, so the raised flowers really jump off the painting! Very interesting texture and color contrast.

Next Morning, Florida landscape


"Next Morning"
Acrylic on canvas board 
original  8 x 10 inches
$350.00

Finished up an old one that I had in the studio for a while.  Added mist and the nice little sunlit trees in the distance.  This started as a plein air painting, but I have rearranged everything and added the pond.  Like it much better!

I'm also working on getting stronger focal points, with a nice lead into the painting.  I think I achieved that goal this time.

Easy does It, Florida Art, palms, turtle, gator



"Easy Does It"

Love the little turtle on the trunk of the closer palm and the birds in the dead tree. I was inspired to paint this while out on a fishing trip.  It is cool how the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. Cycles of life are so fragile, and so evident.

Enjoy!

Dawn's Light, impressionism, palms



"Dawn's Light"
© Fawn McNeill 2008


I painted this alla prima, all in one session. Wet-in-wet, fast and loose . . . so fun to do. Very impressionistic. I saw this little palm tree glowing in the early morning sun, the shadows where intensified by the light. It was so beautiful to me. It reminds me of that feeling when you are out camping and it is hard to make things out with all the shadows, then the sun eats away at the darkness and even seems to bite through some of the objects in its path.

Sunrise Beach, Seascape with palm, demo painting


"Sunrise Beach"

Have done this one as a class demo a couple of times, always love it.  Added the palm tree this time, and more clouds.  My students are encouraged to use more pink or orange if they want a sunset instead of sunrise. Of course it could be either.

Down Stream, pasture, cattle, palms, Florida art

Enjoy!

Breezy Evening, Florida art, palms and sunset


"Breezy Evening"
original demo

This demonstration painting is a take off of "Breezy Morning."  Changed the colors, reversed the composition, added some palm trees, and also formatted it vertical instead of horizontal.  This is a great example of how you can jazz up those photos that didn't turn out so great.  Add dark shadows and strong highlights for more contrast and change some things to strengthen the composition.  

I may still add some birds . . .

Florida Skies Too, abstract knife painting


"Florida Skies Too"
July 4th, 2011


About This Painting:
This is an older one from a few years ago.  Started going through my inventory and decided I would rather they go to good homes at lower prices than sit on my shelf!


When I created this one I revisited an older painting, completely changing it by using a knife. I really enjoy using such intense colors!

Enjoy!

Stormy Evening, sunset beach knife painting


"Stormy Evening"
(Am currently accepting orders for custom paintings! 
Can do something similar in a larger size!)

This is an original palette knife painting.  Sometimes I take a break from my serious detailed work and put tons of paint out on the palette. I load the painting up thick using a palette knife instead of a brush to get all kinds of interesting mixtures and texture.  This is very exciting and moves quickly.  When they don't come together with the desired results I scrape all the paint off and try again. In most cases I do them alla prima (all at once), but this time I didn't have time to get it all finished and went back later to add the final details. (Added birds and some of the palm tree with a small brush.)

"Another Piece of Paradise"

This is the third painting in this series of large sunsets.  It is symbolic for the journey we are on.  Many times we come through the dry and harsh places before we find a season of beauty that is overwhelming. Maybe we wouldn't have recognized it if we hadn't struggled to find better things.

This is a palette knife painting, full of texture and bold color.  I added horses running in the distance as a celebration of life.


Enjoy!
