The Road Home
9” x 12”  oil
gift

This month The Virtual Paintout is visiting Ecuador. Using the Google Street View, we artists draw of paint as if we were actually there.  I traveled up high in the mountains looking for a spot that really spoke to me. I found it here, where the tall trees made lacy patterns against the night sky. I could imagine someone driving through the night, seeing that house with the lights on and knowing they were almost home. (To see this spot yourself, click here.)


Detail:


This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up, just as it is.

Bright Flowers
oil on gallery-wrapped canvas
11 x 14 x 1.5

Winter weather calls for some bright color to balance the grey out. I saw some flowers at the farmers market that were an incredible magenta pink, and thought it would be the perfect painting challenge - to match that color and compliment it. Inspiration comes from everywhere, the landscape, a still life set up, a brief encounter with something or someone, but also the imagination. Imagination is one of the wonderful conditions of being human.


This piece is painted on all sides of a gallery-wrapped (or box) canvas. No need to frame it (but of course you could), it hangs flush against the wall and is ready to hang.

Delphiniums
30" x 36"   Oil on canvas


Sometimes paintings find their way back to you. This painting went to a friend several years ago, and when she could no longer keep it, it was returned to me. I am most grateful, and wish to thank her. Being in my possession again, it is once again on the market. It is big - so big I had a hard time photographing it, hence the glare, sorry. It comes framed, a traditional wood frame, dark blue with silver highlights and a thin linen liner.
