Little House On The Cherry

Original 16 x 16 painting – acrylic on stretched canvas
Just posted in my shop on etsy.  Yes, a little bit different than my normal landscapes.  Not so much a color explosion of sky and hills this time, rather a contemporary portrait turned landscape.  Now that I have depicted home sweet home to be located on a cherry, you might see more homes in off beat locations in a possible series titled “Little House”  … still brainstorming 🙂

“A Jet Quartet” 16 x 16 x 1.5 acrylic on canavs
Original illustration from my new book “House”
This painting is featured on page 23 of the book.  Perfect for an aviation themed room, or anyone who likes the “roar” of these approaching planes.  For the story I needed to paint 4 jets, well…I saw these WWII planes that had the intake located on just the nose.  I loved them, and decided to go with something really similar and have them flying right at the viewer.  Since I don’t typically paint this type of scene, I think it is one of my favorites from the book.

Dunwoody Art Fest

We had wonderful weather this past Mother’s Day weekend.  Sold lots at the Dunwoody Art Fest.  For those who have been waiting for new originals to be posted in the etsy shop, you will be happy to know that some new works will be posted in my etsy shop soon.  I have some new works along with some of the original illustrations from the book I recently finished.  The book illustrations were all done on stretched canvas just like my other paintings.  I will be posting the new works within the next couple of days and throughout the month of May.  Anyone who purchases an original illustration from my children’s book “House”, will receive a free hardcover copy of the book.  Yay right?

Here is a shot of me in my booth right before the show opening, some table pictures, and a view from my booth.  13 of the paintings have sold, but don’t worry – I have a bunch more to post here online 🙂

Charity Art Auction

Auction is now live on eBay!  100% of the proceeds to go to the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge of Destin, FL.

As I mention in the auction this little baby seagull is lovin’ his clean beach.  Titled “With Love” because my little bird is with a hanging heart, but also because “With Love” from you to the organization, the proceeds will help with the oil spill clean up effort.  I chose this organization because, while I currently reside in the central FL area, I am from the Emerald Coast area of Northwest Florida (Niceville to be exact).  Reports from family and friends are the oil is just now starting to hit the shoreline this week 😦

If you are unable to bid at this time, you can still help by blogging, tweeting, facebooking etc. the auction listing.
10 Day Auction.  Bidding starts at $1 (Free Shipping to USA addresses)
