TIME FLIES - ORIGINAL SMALL ABSTRACT PAINTING


Hey Friends,  Always working!  Look out OBX, I'll be there soon.


This is titled "TIME FLIES".   My sister and I were talking about how old our babes are now and WE DO NOT feel old enough to have kids their age!  We all do that, don't we?
Even talking about it shows our age, right?

This is on my website HERE.  And you can see it better!

BUBBLE GUM AND BLEACH - ORIGINAL FLORAL PAINTING


I wanted to use this black canvas with some dramatic back light and contemporary flowers.
I love how it turned out.  You can never be certain something will be what you had pictured in your mind.


This would make a nice statement on any wall!

Shipping is FREE in the US and you have 2 weeks to make a return.

HERE it is on my website.

KEEPING IT TOGETHER - STILL LIFE PAINTING


I enjoy painting flowers in a very loose, impressionistic style.  There is beauty in the photo realistic style but it doesn't have much in the way an expressive artistic painterly statement does it?  I love to see the painters hand in their work.
This and most of my floral pieces are from my imagination.  I have a wide array of artificial flowers that are fun to use.   I drag them out once in a while.


This is painted on YUPO watercolor paper (a plastic paper).  It was fun to work on and I encourage you to give it a try.
This is listed on my website HERE.

Glad you stopped by.

CONTORTED - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT STILL LIFE


The vase in this painting is an acrylic pour I did back in the summer.  These pours are fun to do even if they are totally on their own.  I could not find a single way to control them and if your table is not perfectly level, it will run everywhere.


I made several of these skins with the intention of doing vases and flowers from them. 
A great little time killer to do with your GranBabes.

PALE CORAL - ORIGINAL EXPRESSIVE PAINTING


Simply titled "CORAL" for the color of the flowers.  Love turquoise/aqua with almost any color and use it really often.  When this is framed you should be careful that the mat keeps the painting from touching the glass.  Over a long time the glass and acrylic paint could adhere to each other and that wouldn't be a good thing if you ever wanted to reframe.  Or it could be adhered to a deep cradled panel for a contemporary look.

This was a joy to create and I hope you like it too.

CHURNING UP THE DEEP - ORIGINAL ABSTRACTED SEASCAPE


My initial layer of paint was applied a few weeks before H.Florence hit the Carolina's.  Set aside, then another layer added.  Another week goes by and I'm studying what is there....Then it hits me how much it looks like the ocean.  Churning waves and wind are really dragging up the muck from below.  Thus was born the imaginary world of the coast during a hurricane.




If only the real thing looked this pretty.

A LIFE WELL LIVED - ORIGINAL EXPRESSIVE ABSTRACT ART


Blue is a favorite color so you will see it in a lot of my work.  Blue Skies, Blue Waters, Blue Mood, any reason to use Blue.  My life has evolved much like yours, I would bet, to be looking for the calmer, more soothing subjects and activities and places and people.   Nothing like sitting on a beach with the sun coming up or going down and a pleasant breeze moving the clouds along.


I would call that "A Life Well Lived" even if we only imagine it every day.

This is now on my website  HERE

Thanks for stopping by.

TALLY ME BANANAS - ORIGINAL WALL DECOR


Hey Again My Friends,  I have always loved this song.  There used to be a cute little kiddy show on TV that my Babes liked. I loved it. They usually sang this song every time.


This would make a nice little conversation piece in your bathroom, especially if you added a title
plaque.   It is listed HERE on my website.

Thanks for stoppin in.  Check out my new InstaGram acct.  It is listed on the right side, up top on this blog.  I also have a FB page and this work is listed on DPW.

LIFE LIVED AT THE TOP - ORIGINAL FLORAL PAINTING


Another piece painted from imagination.  Somewhat like a Bob Burridge.  It is painted on MITZ Terra Skin Paper!  A paper made from stone!  I love this surface and I encourage all artist to give it a try.  It accepts all mediums.  Oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil and even pastels if you give it a coat of gesso for some tooth. 


You can mat and frame it like watercolor or adhere to a wooden panel and varnish it for display without glass.

SINGING AGAIN - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT ART


Hey Friends,  As I recall I had Beaux Jacque blaring on my tiny little player, even with a sub-par CD player, Beaux and the Hi-Rollers sound great.  I was singing along too.


Once in a while I play ADELE but I usually wind up crying and can't see what I'm working so don't play her too often.  Was thinking I would like to find John Denver on a CD but he makes me cry too so maybe not.

This happy little piece is listed for sale on my website HERE!
Have a look and thanks for stopping by.
