Two Sunflowers Acrylic Painting

Two Sunflowers acrylic painting is 11 x 14 inches on stretched gallery wrapped canvas (no frame necessary).  I didn't photograph the sides, but all of the edges are fully painted.     I used the Golden "open acrylics" for these flowers.   The feature of the open acrylics is that like oils, they stay 'wet' for a long time, so blending is possible.   They really do stay wet.  It did take me a while to do this - switching the type of medium you use is tricky.    This is available $150.00 + shipping.







Stay loose and flexible, and keep your expectations very low.

Osprey Watercolor Painting


Osprey Watercolor Painting is 11 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   Recently an article in our local newspaper Providence Journal, ran a story about a nest two osprey had built in a dangerous area that the electric company was moving to a better location for when they return in the spring.

Its shrill scream seems yet to linger in its throat, and the roar of the sea in its wings. There is the tyranny of Jove in its claws, and his wrath in the erectile feathers of the head and neck. It reminds me of the Argonautic expedition, and would inspire the dullest to take flight over Parnassus.
 Henry David Thoreau

Chickadee Watercolor Painting

Chickadee watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.  I used Daniel Smith duochrome for the blue which has a bit of a sparkle to it, although it's very subtle. 

"We learned to be patient observers like the owl.
We learned cleverness from the crow,
and courage from the jay,
who will attack and owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory.
But above all of them ranked the chickadee because
of its indomitable spirit."
Tom Brown, Jr.

Deer in the Snow Watercolor Painting

Deer in the Snow original watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper. 
 My heart and prayers go out to the families in Connecticut (our neighboring state), as our nation grieves with them for their (our) great loss.   Words are inadequate.....  In the President's speech he said to Newtown "you are not alone".  

"He will swallow up death (in victory; He will abolish
death forever).   And the Lord God will wipe away tears
from all faces; and the reproach of His people 
He will take away from off all the earth;
for the Lord has spoken it."  Isaiah 25:8
"And when this perishable puts on the imperishable [nature],
and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] 
must put on immortality (freedom from death).
O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?" I Cor. : 54, 56 Amplified Bible

Hibiscus (#1) Watercolor Painting

Hibiscus (#1) watercolor painting is 6 x 6 inches on Ampersand Aquaboard (a wonderful painting surface!)  These blooms came out the day after I rescued the plant from our first frost a few weeks ago.  They were just so gorgeous a thank you I had to preserve them.  This one has a mate (#2) which I will post tomorrow.   The surface has been sprayed so no mat or glass for framing is necessary.  I have been busy getting ready for a show this weekend, as posted earlier -- December 1st and 2nd so my painting time has suffered this week as a consequence....

Passing Inspection Watercolor Painting

Passing Inspection watercolor painting is 12 x 16 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   This was done for an Meetup art group Art Right Now for this coming Tuesday.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend as in conflicts with an art auction I am attending.   They pick a word from a hat (everyone at the meeting gets to put their favorite subject word in) and this month's was "gears".   My grandsons are just fascinated with trains and the workings....  I have another painting which I'll post tomorrow for this same subject.   Who knew?  And speaking of little boys.....

 
Boys in my House
Author: Erin Jo Kilmer
There are boys in my house - and Spiderman shoes
And 200 papers in various blues.
There's Bob (he's a builder) and Thomas the Train,
There's a fireman coat to wear in the rain.
They have cars on their shirts and frogs on their hats
There's a glove and a ball and a red plastic bat.
There's dirt on a face and a smudge on a nose;
Grass stains on knees and sand between toes.
There's bathtime at night with bodies to scrub,
And when we're all done there is dirt in the tub!
There's bandaids and bruises and curious bumps,
There's smiles and laughter and sometimes there's grumps.
There's odors most icky; there's boogers so green
There's more yucky things than I'll ever get clean.
There's piles of laundry; there's stories at night;
There's bedtime and bathtime and dinnertime fights.
There's cars and there's trains and there's books about trucks
There's Scoop, Lofty, Dizzy, and Travis, and Muck.
Sometimes there are bugs, and sometimes there are frogs;
Sometimes they are lions, or dinos, or dogs.
There are cute little vests and darling neckties
Dragged right through the mud - oh what a surprise!
There's running and climbing and jumping and falling
And laughing and crying and hugging and brawling
And rolling and losing and finding and creeping
And whining and stealing and sometimes there's sleeping.
There's tantrums and time outs and extra loud noise -
There's love in my house shaped like two little boys

            No rose-bud is nigh,
      To reflect back her blushes,
            Or give sigh for sigh.....'
