Holiday Arrangement

Holiday arrangement

Acrylic on canvasboard
11" x 14"
$250 framed

Hydrangeas are beautiful as a painting in any season.
I painted this still life painting as a winter painting – mostly cool colors with a touch of warm red. The red berries give that extra punch of color and add a dynamic diagonal lines to the composition.
This painting has several soft textures and beautiful color variations in the flower itself.

Rhapsody of the Seas

Rhapsody of the sea

Acrylic on canvas
12" x 9"

The acrylic experimentation continues... most of this painting was created underwater in a plastic tub. Pouring and smearing paint to get the colors on the canvas and then gently lifting it out of the water and moving it around to get the effect of the sea water running through.
"Having fun with the medium"

It is inspired by the sea scape series i am working on for a show next year. This is a loose abstract interpretation.

Perfume Bottles

Perfume Bottles
Acrylic on canvas paper
9" x 12"

Women (and men) love perfumes so much that there is a whole industry dedicated to it. It is not just the scent but how it is marketed and presented to the consumer. The beautiful bottles that hold the liquid are so sparkling and mesmerizing that i don't want to throw away the used bottles.This painting is inspired by the bottles in my closet and a new tube of gold Liquitex Paint marker.

Sunset Impression

Sunset Impression

Everyone at one time or another has marveled at the warm pink and orange colors of a sunset. Although colorful sunsets and sunrises can be seen anywhere, they are particularly captivating during a beach vacation.
The colors of this sunset are imaginary but the place is real, (painted from a photo).
Enjoy this visual journey and remember a beautiful vacation sunset on a beach walk.
