I love today's painting. Many times I just start with a few tubes of paint and start with a wash of color. This one came out to be an ocean scene where I thought a lighthouse would be appropriate. This painting is 5x7 acrylic on masonite ready to frame or sit on an easel.
Sorry I missed 2 days of posting. I did paint however...with the kids activities, power outage due to snow storm and to general busyiness I missed posting. Most will be listed in my ebay store and not on this blog so please be sure to check out my ebay store later this week.
Today's painting is for a beautiful farm landscape, acrylic on masonite, 5x7. I call this "Million Dollar Rain". You will hear that term in Iowa, usually late July into August when the crops really need a rain. Then comes along a beautiful timely soaker which wakes up the crops and answers the farmer's prayers.
Today's painting is for a 5x7 acrylic painting of a farm landscape with red barn in the background. I thought the colors reminded me of that time when the sun has gone down but is quickly replaced by the moon. SOLD
SOLD! Today's listing is for a minimalist painting of a landscape with a boy flying a kite. I call it "Kite Fun". It looks like his even his collie dog is having fun! This painting is an original acrylic on masonite and it 5"x7".
Today's listing is for a calming landsape acrylic painting. This is 5x7 and painted on gessoed masonite. Sorry I missed posting yesterday. I was at my daughter's sectional swim meet and got behind on posting. That's the way it goes..her medley relay made it to state!
We own one of the oldest buildings our town, built around 1897. Above the drop ceiling is a treasure of tin. I found it coincidental that of all of the designs available in vintage tin, my tin had an empty center piece, perfect for painting on! I have about 1000 pieces of this tin . This series of tin will be treated as a limited edition, they will each be signed, numbered and dated. I am also lucky to have a talented brother (well, I have 2 talented brothers) but one custom makes the beautiful frames for my tins. If you purchase one of my tins you will be buying a piece of history, in limited number, touched by loving hands. To create a finished piece the first step is that my wonderful husband stands on a tall ladder and patiently dismantles the tin from the ceiling. This is no easy job since each piece is 2 foot by 8 foot! Once it is down I cut it into to manageable pieces and wash it. Next step is to gesso and add texture. Once it is dry then I find inspiration and paint an original painting on it. After it is painted and varnished I frame it with one my brother's custom frame (he is a custom cabinet/furniture builder) and finish the back with backing paper and put on a hanger. To complete the painting I sign, number the new/old piece of art. After the piece is completed I photograph and list it for all of you to enjoy and for one of you to buy! These paintings look amazing on a wall...it is hard to capture the true beauty and uniqueness of the piece with a couple of pictures. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. I would love to hear your comments! Please check out my ebay store for more paintings on antique ceiling tin. Check back often since I am always painting on them.
This is a fun little 4"x6" painting featuring a couple of kids ice skating. Please check out my auction listing in the below link to see a closeup of the kids. I had to pull out my tiny brushes to get them painted. All of my daily paintings can be framed without glass or will look nice sitting on an easel. I have finished the backs so they look nice.
Today's listing is for dramatic ocean scene with waves (yes you can feel them) and lots of color. This is an acrylic on textured masonite and 5x7. If you would like to see a closeup pic of the texture, bid or find my other fab paintings then
Today's listing is for a dramatic tonalist landscape. I call this piece Hidden Pond. All of my daily paintings are painted on the back and signed with my name, signature, title and year of creation. These little gems look great in a frame with no glass or sitting on an easel. Thanks for stopping by!
