New Paintings Delivered

Share on Facebook

I was delighted to deliver these 3 pieces to the newly renovated home of a young family this week!  Fall Forest is the largest work... 60"x40", Sunset Crag 40"x30" is a vibrant piece that occupies a dramatic position at the top of the staircase, while Blue Highland 30"x40" is in soft blues and golds that the client wanted for the master bedroom,

All pieces are a mix of acrylic paint, plaster and natural material.

New Commission: April 2014

Agonized over this one ..... The client wanted bright blues, deep pinks and a foreground that picked up colors in her decor... It also had to add an an illusion of depth in the room .... To get unstuck, I called and asked her " Decscribe the picture you have in your mind"... This is my interpretation... I was delighted and relieved to see her hang the piece immediately ...

 

The 1st photograph, taken at an angle, best illustrates how the painting is viewed in the room... 

Blue River at Night - Commission January 2014

Share on Facebook

A Chicago couple, with a beautifully decorated new home, wanted a painting that would blend with their color scheme of blues, greys and sand colors. "It must pop as well as bring a suggestionof interest/mystery ..."  

No matter how I varied the attempts to execute my own vison, the piece kept returning to what it is... I was delighted they approved! 

Clearly my sub-concious prevailed over my concious will!

Fiery Islands - New Commission

This piece was taken away with the paint still fresh... I received this photo today ... always good to see a picture framed and hanging in its new home!

Aqua Wreck - Latest Commission

Share on Facebook

This client asked for a soft, yet bright seascape... Aqua Wreck 40x24  - Acrylic/Multi-media on canvas. I could not help adding another bit of rusted metal, making this yet another in my ongoing Wreck Series.... I draw such comfort from reminders that nature will eventually reclaim even the worst polliution/damage we inflict on the environment...

A client commissioned Aqua Sea in the Mist... 30"x30" (sold) ... textured foreground on gallery canvas... I need to invest in a decent camera... Anything with white paint or the misty effect I love to create, just doesnt translate well colorwise... 

The same client also purchased the two smaller pieces 24"x18' ... Wreck at Sea I & II  (sold)

 

Highland Landscape

My latest large canvas ... These were not the colors I originally intended... yet try as I may... the piece kept coming back to this palette... Strange!  

6'x3' Acrylic on Gallery Canvas with light tetured foreground...
