“Cherish”

This weeks penny auction.  Update: Sold!
“Cherish” – 16×20 original canvas painting on 1.5″ wooden stretcher bar frame.
This weeks auction is a jeweled tone landscape filled with little whimsical whatnots.  A little black capped chickadee gazes upward to a hanging heart ornament.  This piece contains a lot of the traditional elements I usually include in my landscape paintings with some added magical charm in the tree 🙂

Artist Note-
Reason behind the title:  I mentioned in the listing that little birds warm my heart.  The original Greek word for “cherish” is thalpo – which means “to keep warm”.   No, I am not a linguist – just a random fact I happened upon while painting this piece so that’s how the name came about.  🙂

Celestial Drive

I mentioned in last weeks post that there would be no new original art until I completed work for an upcoming show.  Well, I have a few pieces that have been boxed away since I returned from my last show, plus one I just happened to finish today.  I guess there will be some new ones this week.  Here is the first one, “Celestial Drive”…see it on etsy.Image
