Art and More Art opens the door on this artist's creative and painting process.
A new blog, it promises to be very short and sometimes sweet as I write about my artworks you see in this Fine Art America gallery.
These beautiful prints are produced from photos and from the studies I paint every day on a Florida beach or in the North Carolina mountains. On occasion, they may come from gazing at the clouds from a window as I watch palm trees swaying in strong breezes, or a thousand other things can bring a painting to mind. It's the artist's blessing and curse-we paint all the time, even when we aren't painting.
My newest FAA prints are in the Young People's gallery. These nature paintings are from my island forays to paint. The flowers, shells, birds, and butterflies are indigenous to the area and are painted in Spring. Of course, many adults enjoy this same genre, but the decor of a youngster's room was what I had in mind when planning the six series of paintings.
After posting a number of photos as I waited to find a camera suitable for photographing my paintings, painting uploads will begin again this week. They will be, for the most part, minimalist/abstract paintings. I love painting these works, large and small, and I'm reserving larger oil works for my domain gallery. If there is interest in quality reproductions of large works, I'll offer those as prints with a link.
Thanks for your interest in my art!
