I hope you enjoy “But the Sky,” a 36″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Below are four new paintings finished in the last month.
I’m very grateful for the continued strong support of my art, and want to say a big “Thank You!” to all the collectors, both recent and those who go back with me a few years. (I’ve been painting full-time since 2010, so that’s quite a list!) Among the remarkable volume of paintings sold this last month, here is a look at a few of them which were favorites, either of mine, or of the viewers on social media. (below)
Thanks to all of you! I’d love to hear from you, and it would be especially wonderful to see photos of my paintings in their special place in your home. You can send a photo directly to my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you’re all having a great summer and staying cool!!!
I made a few tweaks after posting the video. So here it is, revised, and in a still shot!
A video, for a change. I hope you enjoy.
This tree is on a corner we pass on the way to LaFontsee Galleries (where I am represented in Grand Rapids and Douglas). I’m so glad I was able to capture a photo of it.
I don’t know how many expressions will follow before I have fulfilled this … this thing that has overtaken me this spring. Maybe once the blossoms have all fallen?
The white blossoms on the dogwood trees in our yard are still hanging on. The leaves are starting to crowd them out though. Oh, how I love the delicate dogwood blossoms.
I went through many phases in this painting, thinking it was complete, even posting it on my Facebook page, only to realize after a couple of days, that it wasn’t setting right with me. I would then go after it again.
It’s finally “there” for me. The title is therefore not only a reference to a slow Sunday drive in the country which has no need to be rushed; but also a reminder that you can’t rush the completion of certain expressions of art.
Apparently, collectors of my art enjoy skies as much as I do, so I continue to delve into this limitless subject. It’s a new exploration with each new sky. I find endless fascination in the many different settings, lighting conditions, color combinations, moods… .
If any of these works (or the other pieces on my Available Paintings page) strike a chord with you, and you’d like to surround yourself with a peaceful trip to the lake or country by adding an original piece of art to your home, feel free to contact me through the Contact tab, or call me directly at 616-723-6600 with any questions.
I hope you enjoy the latest paintings to come off the “easel.” (Actually, I don’t use easels anymore; for any artists out there who paint on large canvases and want to contact me for more information about how I paint against the wall, I have a most wonderful set-up now for the past number of months, and it has greatly improved my productivity and organization.)
Many blessings, friends!
Exploring more of the joy of painting vessels.
It’s usually wise to wait and post new paintings on the following day, in case one wants to make revisions after seeing things with fresh eyes. But sometimes one is not in the mood to wait.
