Surfside Weekend Sale

I have four 6″ canvas paintings that I’ve posted on etsy this weekend.  Each piece has a ocean spray, tropical winds, and palm tree silhouettes.  There are a few little crystal embellishments in each piece in the ocean spray area.  These were completed in 2013.  Sale will run throughout this weekend.  Click the pic to see them in the shop!

Surf Report 1 & 2

I’ve lived 4 years on Florida’s space coast, 12 years in the Florida panhandle, 1 year in the Jax Beach area, and now 10 years here in Central Florida.  That’s bound to cause a few hurricanes to fly overhead right?  Right!  So that is one reason you have been seeing some windy palms blow out of the studio.  The other is sort of a flashback to what I was doing when I first started selling my first pieces online.  They were all ACEO art cards, but they were all simple silhouette night landscapes.  Several have asked if I would ever make those into large paintings…and I’m finally revisiting that idea starting only adding some different elements to it.

Some new works from the studio…

Been busy these past few weeks…will spare the details for now.  Wanted to at least update few new things from the studio.  Some pieces sold before I could head over here and post about them, so sorry for the delay…

“Stargazer” 16×16 acrylic on canvas (sold)
This was the first girl painting I was able to offer direct from me.  The other 18 girls I completed earlier this year were all a part of the Taiwan art show this past spring.  Hoping to be able to offer more soon as inspiration is always blowing in through my starry window.
A signed limited ed. print of 20 is available here.

New Collection – Decorative “pop” illustrations.
I call these illustrations mainly because their black bold lines remind me of illustrative art.
Below are three new works.  These all have an energetic personality to them, at lest to me they do.

And lastly – “Gulf Winds” (sold)
You would think being from Florida that I would paint more beaches and palms.  Perhaps that will change, as I love my home state.  I painted this one less breezy and more tropical stormish.  I have been through several hurricanes, two of them were bad ones (Opal 1995, and Charlie 2004).  Picture me crawling across the house, as I decide that one room might be more safe than the one I was in.  Yes, when your inside ceiling attic door is being picked up and slammed down by outside wind, you think your house is about to leave Kansas.  Right toto?  But I digress…..if you missed this one, more palms and salt water to come.
