New Commission Painting Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak peek of a new commission I am working on. The painting is finished, but I will wait to post a full pic until the new owners take it home.  For now, here are some close-ups of the brush work.

Willow Trees at Lilypons (2016), 8 x 16 in.

For some reason, the colors in painting were exceptionally difficult to capture accurately with my camera.  After a bit of Photoshop editing, this is pretty close.  I have to say I am pretty fond of this new painting.  I tried out a new technique which involves a bright reddish underlayer.  This underlayer shows through between the daubs of paint and gives it a luminous, glowing quality.  I am also very fond of these particular willow trees.  One of them was previously featured in my other painting of Lilypons.

Secolari Exhibit and Reception

This post is a little late, but several of my paintings and prints are on display at the Secolari store at the Towson Town Center in Towson, MD.  The exhibit went up in March featuring eight paintings and five framed archival prints which will continue on display through December 2016.  Here are some pictures from the display.

Secolari held an artist reception in June where I sold one original painting and one framed print!  I sold another framed print back in April as well.  I am very pleased with how the display turned out and look forward to meeting more art lovers at future receptions.  Secolari sells artisanal flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars as well as spices, honey, and pasta. Secolari has three Maryland locations and one Washington, DC location, all which feature local artists as well as the oils, vinegars, and spices.  Check it out if you are ever in the area!

Birch Forest in Autumn (2015), 12 x 16"

This painting is based on a photo taken by my sister while on vacation in Russia!  Russia is, apparently, covered in the most luscious, magical looking birch forests, and lots of Russian folk art features birch trees.  I am in love with their white stripey bark and tall, straight trunks.

Commission: Path Through the Redwoods (2015), 8 x 16"

I love painting trees and redwoods have an unmatched magnificence.  I visited a redwood forest once as a child and can imagine walking along this path with the redwoods towering overhead, the sunlight gently filtering to the forest floor. I painted this as a commission and am so glad to have had the opportunity to capture these lovely trees in my own style!

A Favorite Painting...

Several years ago, one of my favorite paintings, Hillside with Wildflowers (above), was stolen from an exhibit of my work.  Somehow, the fact that this painting was stolen by someone I don't know feels different to me than paintings of mine that are purchased by strangers.  I miss this one so much more, not knowing where it is. But, all is not lost, because I scanned this painting before putting it on display.  Since I have a digital scan of this painting, I can now print it on my new Epson R3000 printer!  The result is absolutely stunning--a virtually perfect replica of the original, minus the texture of the oil paint, of course.  However, the lovely watercolor paper I use for my prints produces the colors and brushstrokes so wonderfully, it gives the illusion of texture.  This print is one of almost 60 prints available at my Etsy store.  Hillside with Wildflowers, is available here.
