shoreline, miniature, beach on wood




Shoreline on wood
3 x 3.5 inches

Creating some small original works.  This was a fun little project. I have a couple of miniatures ready, as well as a few painted seashells.  I use the wood grain, or the patterns in a shell, to find the waves or landscape.  In this one, I let some of the colors of the wood become the sand and used the pattern of the wood grain for the waves. 
 I clean, sand, and prime the wood first. I use professional artist grade materials for the paint and the clear sealer as the final coat -- front and back.

 On display at the Unique Boutique!

At the Edge, mixed media, blue heron

"At the Edge" (Lake Okeechobee)

© 2020

Original Mixed Media 





A few years ago, I did some plein air studies during a drought at Nubbin's Slough.  This experimental painting came from those studies.  Here I used paper-clay for the rocks.  (Paper fibers are added to the clay for more strength).  These hand sculpted rocks have a cool looking 3-D effect.  I also enjoyed building up the weeds with gel medium to create interesting patterns of texture.  

I hid some angels in the sky and used tiny brushes for the distant birds and extra details.


9 x 12 inches

Beaches hand painted on wood


   
 Heart Beach, 8.5 x 10 inches on wood,
 $125.00 plus shipping

     Beach Shore, 8.5 x 11 on cheese board, 
$125.00 plus shipping

I did these just before the Covid19 shut everything down. I never had a chance to post them!
Original hand-painted art (not a pour!)  I use professional artist grade materials.  I also sand the wood and clean it before priming it with a clear primer.
These were interesting and fun to paint.  My personal challenge was for the wood grain to become the sand.  I love the way they turned out: the wet sand illusion and the color changes.


These paintings are also available at Unique Boutique, Okeechobee Florida!

I ended up closing my gallery and teaching center because all the art classes were canceled. It was very difficult after 7 years of pouring my life into it.  But it is turning out to be a good thing!

I am renting a room in town to take orders for custom framing because I live quite a ways out of town. I am building the frames at home in my garage.  That has worked out very nicely!  Much better than I expected actually. I also moved the large matting table into my small art studio at my house, so I can still cut mats and glass too.  This makes the corner for my easel a little crowded, but it works.

I am also taking commissioned orders, and creating custom designed paintings for my clients.  I take orders via email or meet at the new office. I am working in my studio at home to paint the animal portraits, vistas, ranches, etc. . .  The response has been amazing, I am so blessed to have so many followers and collectors! It has also been surprisingly nice to work at home again!

I miss teaching classes, but I do have some private lessons and semi-private lessons for friends and siblings going on, so that helps.

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.)

Spilling Over Again, abstract, mixed media


"Spilling Over Again"


This is a take off from an older abstract painting called "Spilling Over." It is part of a new series of mixed media paintings.  This one has aquarium stones, beads, and tiny pearls. 

I'm experimenting with adding found objects and/or impasto techniques (thick raised texture to paint over.) 

I did some of this in college, but that was a few years ago.... 

Starting small, and learning so much about gel medium, heavy gesso, and acrylic modeling paste!  Way too cool.

This one is framed in a black shadow box.

Rocky Shore, plein air, birds


"Rocky Shore"  © 2007



I recently repainted part of this older plein air painting.  (Done on location.) 

The water level was very low, and the rocks made interesting patterns. It was challenging to say the least!  


The little blue heron stayed off to the far right most of the morning, and just before I finished up, the water turkey (anhinga) poked his head up a few times (near the bottom).


I loved all the colors and the rhythm in this painting, but I went back and toned down some of the rocks, mostly on the left and a little near the top, in order to direct the viewer's eye toward the bird on the right.

Waiting Orders, guardian angel

"Waiting Orders"

Painted this angel with a brush instead of a palette knife this time.  Wanted a softer look.  Love the color scheme.

I wanted him to look like he was finished with one assignment and waiting for the next.  I have always thought that I must have some very serious warrior angels looking out for me! 

This small painting is done on cradled hardboard, the sides are painted, so framing is optional.

Enjoy!

Dinner Time, great egret in a pond of lilies

"Dinner Time"



About This Painting:
This great white egret kept landing in front of me while I was painting en plein aire (out on location). He was very large, and fat! I think he (or she) wanted to pose for me. I did include him in some of the plein air paintings I did those couple of days. Then I painted a few of him in paintings like this that are done from the photos I took.

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

Secret Stream, palette knife painting

"Secret Stream"




About This Painting:
This one started as a path with pebbles and stones on the edges of it. Then it reminded me of one of many creeks I have crossed in Montana, so I added more rocks. I used a palette knife to get that sparkle effect of the water dancing down stream. Really fun to to create with a knife, because you never know what you will get in the end.


Enjoy!

Ends of the Earth, abstract sunset landscape

"Ends of the Earth"


Actually was inspired by my palette, the colors are arranged all around the edges with white in the middle, so it looks almost like a rainbow at times. I began with yellow, orange, and red first, then added some white. Then I worked around to greens and blues, and finally added the violet. Then I found myself adding water, and foliage, of sorts. The purple hues remind me of a shore line. This painting has wonderful texture from the wet in wet applications with a palette knife.

Enjoy!

Second Look, plein air Florida landscape

"Second Look" © 2011


This is the third painting I did at the Adams Ranch a little more than a week 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 just love the way it turned out! They don't all go so well.


This is the right side of the path I posted last week. The spring actually runs all the way around the little hill in that painting (End of the Road).


Enjoy!

End of the Road, Florida landscape with natural springs

"End of the Road"


Plein air painting I did at the Adams Ranch for Saturday's paint-out. The water actually runs all the way around the little hill. These natural springs are all over the ranch. Some of them have a sulfur smell to them, but this one didn't. The kite birds kept swooping down in front of me, and I was able to get some pretty good photos of them. It was cool and breezy too. What a perfect morning!

Enjoy!
