Proud

"Proud"
6x12 acrylic on canvas
Email me if interested in this painting

Another reference from photographer Russ Bridges (I love his bird photos!) 

This is another in the a 6x12 "slices" painting series, and it is done in acrylic inks & washes. Again, this is slated for a show - but email me if you are interested in it.

What?

"What?"
6x12 acrylic on canvas
Email me if interested in this painting

This is from another photo of photographer Russ Bridges - he does such wonderful bird photos! I saw this birds stance & could not resist. 

This is also a 6x12 "slices" painting, and it is done in acrylic inks & washes. I thought it would be good to do a few vertical compositions since the last 4 were horizontal. Again, this is slated for a show - but email me if you are interested in it.

Napa Valley - SOLD

"Napa Valley" - California
6x12 acrylic on canvas
Available through Daily Paintworks auction - click here to bid

This month the VPO visits the Napa Valley in California. The original Google map view can be seen here.

I wanted to find water - I felt the need to find some water in amongst all these vineyards. There was some areas on map but unfortunately Google did not map all the roads in that area (or there aren't any roads there to map!). But I keep looking until I found this scene & I thought it would look great in the 6x12 slices format.

This particular piece is up for auction - and it was a welcome change from the birds I've been doing lately. I am still not sure whether I will do a 2:1 ratio Landscape theme for some upcoming shows, or if I will show the Acrylic inks & washes instead. The later is focusing on birds - the lines in this style seem to work well with the feathers of the birds. I still have time to decide, so for now, I keep working in both formats.

My Lil Chickadee

"My Lil Chickadee"
6x12 acrylic on canvas
Email me if interested in this painting

I could not resist this title!  This is from another photo of photographer Russ Bridges - he does such wonderful bird photos! 

This is also a 6x12 "slices" painting, and it is done in acrylic inks & washes. I've had so much fun with these little birds - I may do a few more, but I have a few other paintings to work on. I may come back to this subject soon though - I have a few vertical versions in mind.

------------------------------------------

On a separate note, my painting "With Butter & Syrup" was purchased through the "Art - Food for the Soul" show. I was totally surprised - pleasantly I must add - but it has left me in a  quandary on what to put into the gallery this weekend. My original plan was to simply move the waffles piece from show to gallery. But, as my husband likes to say, this is a happy problem!

Actually, I need to get 4 pieces ready for this weekend's delivery! Two are being prepped to go into the SVAN member show, 1 will go to the SVAN gallery and 1 will go to the Perth Information Center (where SVAN members also display their work).
