Flamingo

"Flamingo"
10x20 acrylic on stretched canvas
gallery wrapped sides with image continued
Email me if interested in this painting

As I start gathering paintings for an upcoming outdoor show (Art in the Park in October), I find I am adding more birds to the list. It looks like birds will definitely be my theme for this show.

"Flamingo" is from a reference photo graciously shared by Karen Broemmelsick, a photographer with the Facebook group I'm in called "Photos for Artists." I knew I had to paint this when I first saw her photo. I did some cropping to center the bird and to eliminate some excess items surrounding it. I am particularly happy with how the light on the water came out in this, as well as the bird. It's a striking image!

I am working on a few other large pieces for this show. Although I don't have this listed here for sale, it will be at the show. If you are interested in it, email or message me & I'll mark it SOLD at the show. (Show is October 16th, so it would ship after that).

Kingfisher

"Kingfisher"
8x10 acrylic on canvas
Email me if interested in this painting

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

This painting is also done with acrylic inks & paint, but I went for the 8x10 format. I intend to matt & frame this little guy - I think it'll give this little bird a bit more stature!

Again, this is slated for a show - but email me if you are interested in it.

Hennigar Place

"Hennigar Place" - NFS
9x12 acrylic on canvas board

This is a commissioned home portrait I recently finished.  I was waiting to post it because the gifted was giving it as a surprise. I enjoyed painting this one, the blues were so soothing along with the greens - it really made those red, rustic doors just pop! And I love to draw focus to the front door on a home - it's so inviting.

Contact me if you are interested in having a Home Portrait done - they make a wonderful gift!
