The Old Gate
9” x 12”   oil 

I love this gate, don’t you? The Virtual Paintout has gone to Majorca, the island off the coast of Spain for the month of February.  Using Google Street View we artists travel around looking for something that strikes our fancy to paint or draw. I decided to go out into the countryside to find something noteworthy for my piece. And I found it here with this old gate - at least I think it’s old, it seems to stand alone without a fence. Whatever, I thought it was a wonderful spot, with that bush coming into bloom, those old buildings, and that big field. It all evokes a sense of timelessness.

This piece is painted on canvas, on all sides. It can be framed, but you can just hang it up, if you like.

A Posey Party
11"  x 14”  
Acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas

A bit of a departure from the usual, but so much fun! I was intrigued by this style and wanted to explore more. Slightly abstract, slightly more illustrative, it's straight out of my imagination. This piece was supposed to be quickly done, just a cute little idea I had. No such thing. It turned out to be intricate and absorbing, needing constant adjustment, constant re-working and lots of time. Still, I rather like it, and I hope you do too. There might be more in the future - ideas are just popping into my head!

This piece is painted on gallery wrapped canvas (1.5”); the picture continues on all sides. It hangs flush against the wall and does not need framing, but you can frame it if you like.
