Silly me, I thought I posted this one the last week of February, but don’t see it. Well, it’s at the Gallery Off the Square (in Framer’s Gallery) in Georgetown this month if you’d like to see it in person, (Photos don’t show all the fun details). (oil on stretched canvas, 12×12″) Thanks for viewing my art! Have a blessed week!
A single seagull on a windy day, with a chunky application of paint. (Oil on stretched canvas, 12×12″) This painting is now at Framer’s Gallery in Georgetown, TX. Come visit with the artists at “First Friday” – every first Friday of the month at Gallery Off the Square (inside Framer’s Gallery) for new art and snacks from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, March 7th. I hope to see you there!
This lovely Chicago morning church steeple was so charming that I had to paint it on a larger canvas (16×20″ Oil). The sky behind the steeples was a perfect rosy peach color; I savored every moment I was here! (This was the morning of my son’s Naval graduation). The brushstrokes are thickly laid as if wrapping the snow with a warm handmade quilt. There are some things I miss about the Midwest… the muffled sound of deep fallen snow, looking up as white fluffy flakes melt on your warm face, and two bundled preschool-aged boys tromping snow in through the kitchen door. Happy Valentine’s Day! Have a beautiful day and weekend! This piece can be seen in person at Framer’s Gallery in Georgetown, TX. Thanks for viewing my art blog.
My work is progressing on the larger piece; I chose to use both brush and palette knife which gives it a lot of energetic line and interesting shapes. This is a close up photo of this segment of the larger composition I posted last (24×30″). Thanks for visiting my blog today! Have a blessed weekend! ~Sue
This month has shot by so fast! I just want to jump off the merry-go-round, please! The cold weather has me day dreaming about sandy beaches and warm Florida sunshine. This is a small study that I hope will work well on a large canvas. I started with black gesso which is always fun to work on, as it creates depth and subtle variations. (Oil, 8×10″) Have an excellent week! ~Sue
It’s a new year already! Went too fast! However, very happy to spend some time with my sons over the holidays. This is a segment of a larger work which will be showing at Hill Country Bible Church (Austin, TX) starting January 19th. If you get a chance to stop by the church I will be exhibiting some of my best pieces with two other artists in the main balcony gallery; Cathy Sax, a contemporary mixed media artist and Linda Ezzell, a glass artist. The exhibit runs January 19 through March 28th. There are layers of different green hues in this piece, I used impressionistic strokes to show gestural ripples of the water reflections and the spots where the sun hit the murky water I used glazing to create depth. (Oil on canvas, 24×24″) Thank you for viewing my art today and Happy New Year!
These flowers caught my eye at the store, I know it’s because of the complementary color scheme; the Red daisies and the Chartreuse button mums are great together. (Oil on canvas 8×16″) Have a wonderful Christmas eve & Christmas day with family and friends! God’s blessings to you and your family every day of the year!
