Coleus


"Coleus" - NFS

This painting of Coleus leaves was previously given away in 2012, when I was featured as the DPW Artist Spotlight! It was a great honor & 1 lucky person received this as a gift. 

The link to my interview can be seen by clicking here.

Contact me if you are interested in commissioning a similar painting - I absolutely love the Coleus plant. Such variety & colors - I have multiples of them in my gardens & containers in the yard every year.

See for Miles


"See for Miles"
11x14 acrylic knife painting on stretched canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This is a second painting done for the Virtual Paintout visit to Greece. The original google image can be seen here.

This is a knife painting and I don't know if you can see the texture in some of this, but I put thicker paints in areas of this, then used the knife to create the strokes in it. Here is a closeup of one area:


I've done some knife painting in the past - and lately I've had a desire to do it again. It's like spreading layers & layers of thick butter or cream cheese! LOL - but I love the look it gives. And, the knife will help me to loosen up a bit.

Infinite Sky - an auction for charity

"Infinite Sky"
9x12 acrylic on stretched canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

No, you are not seeing double. This is my painting "Infinite Sky" that I posted recently. The painting has not changed, but my thought for it has.

"Today is my one hundred and eleventh birthday! Alas, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits!" Ok, I'm not quite that old but I so love the hobbits that I felt the need to quote old Bilbo!  

But it really is my birthday today and I thought about doing something special. I thought about a giveaway - maybe a painting, maybe a commissioned piece. But I wanted it to be something more than just a giveaway. So instead, I am altering the auction on this piece that I painted in honor of the lost souls on Malaysia Flight #17. 

This piece is up for auction, now with no shipping costs - and 100% of the auction sale will be donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatrics AIDs Foundation. Many of the Aids research foundations have taken a hard hit from this air disaster as some who were killed were key people on aids research & were on their way to the annual Aids conference in Australia.

I have lowered the starting bid to only $30. If you had even thought of bidding on this piece before, please hesitate no more. Help to make a difference.

Thank you!

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

Artists Note: I seem to be in a bit of a "change" mood. I've decided my website needs a facelift, so that is on the to-do list. Also, I have been thinking of doing some different styles & medias, so watch for some changes in my new work. I've been studying other artists techniques, as well as some famous ones. Not sure what is happening yet, but I have a desire to carve out a texture or shape. I am also looking at a return to my cityscapes - most of my past cityscape paintings have sold. It is time for some new ones - and I think I will paint larger on these!

And lastly, my birthday is on the 24th & I feel another giveaway coming. Not sure what yet - maybe a commissioned piece, maybe an auction for a finished piece. More to come on that probably tomorrow.
