715 Hope Street

A little yellow house on Hope Street
If this little yellow house had some flowers and a mailbox it would be perfect.
Hmm.... do another.

"Cousin's" - Hope I haven't forgotten how to post!

"Cousin's"   20 inches by 20 inches  acrylic on canvas
Hello friends! This painting has been sitting around awhile just waiting for the finishing touches. Last night or was it the night before.... it finally happened, so I will call this "Cousin's" and finished! "Cousin's" because they all originate from the same family of stems. They are all a little different and special in my heart.

This painting was a bit of experimenting, learning and just plain fun.
Have fun this weekend!

Stopped in Time or Time Moves On... -Sold

"Clock Tower"   acrylic on canvas,  8" by 6" by 1.5" deep
And the clock stopped at 8:15. Is that AM or PM? When exactly did the curse hit? Do I need to go back and watch it all again?

This is the clock tower in Storybrooke and one of the Evil Queen's apples.  : )  At least in my little mind...

An apple a day....

"Who's House"   6" by 8"  acrylic on canvas
Sometime's ya just gotta paint.... so I did. Was fun.

I've been watching that crazy night time drama "Once Upon A Time" and this may be someone's little cottage. I just don't know who!

Thanks for watching!

"Sunday Sorbet"

24" by 8" mixed media on canvas
Tall, narrow and very high-key. There is glitter, metal, graphite and acrylic in this painting.
This was a tough one for me to keep light as I tend to get pretty bold with my color. I slapped that cherry in there with some bright red to satisfy that need of mine, hee, hee.

I think I'm hungry for ice cream now, gelato or maybe sorbet!

Have a lovely day,

"Three Cheers!"

Finished? I think it is, I think it is......
Seventeen....? That last painting was not a martini, was it? Well, it could be a martini in a wine glass. Yes, I believe that is it!

Enjoy your martini's, everyday is a celebration!

Continuing on... 16- Little Wine

"Little Wine"   acrylic on canvas   3" by 2"
It's a tiny little piece, but a painting none the less.

Sometimes just the right amount of paint can make just the right painting.

Just my opinion.

Enjoy good wine,

Happy October!! Booooo....Screech...

Better than last September! Yes, as I recall, I either didn't event do the challenge last September or I may have signed up and still didn't do it! Yaaa haa haa haaaaaa, finally I've done 50%! Does this make it a 500% improvement over last year? I'm not sure but I like it!  Wow, I'm having a great day! I hope you are too.  : )

"Fifteen in Fifteen" Gin Martini

"Fifteen in Fifteen"  acrylic on paper  7.5" x 5.5"
Yes, I made this with gin for Leigh, it was Sunday after all. Mmmm, it does have a different flavor.

Not sure if you can tell, but this is another "warm" painting, or pigments that lean toward red.

I may not get all 30 paintings finished in the allotted 30 days, but I am having fun that's for sure!

Have a great day!

Cool and Warm Martini's

"Cool Martini"  acrylic on paper  7.5" x 5.5" (I think)
"A Warm Time of Day"  acrylic on paper  7.5" x 5.5" (I think)
The "Cool Martini" painting was done with hansa yellow, alizarin crimson, phthalo blue  and white.

The second painting I used cad yellow medium, cad red medium, ultramarine blue and white.

It was my little exercise today to remind me what I can do with a limited palette and the feeling I can portray with just a few colors! 

Fun, fun, fun. I'm counting these as numbers 13 and Fourteen.

"Always remember to smile."

Two More Martini Paintings

"Magical Eleven"  16" by 8", mixed media on canvas -SOLD
"Crazy Martini"  13" by 7", mixed media on yupo paper
A couple of crazy martini paintings here. The bottom painting is on "yupo paper", a plastic surface. My artist buddy Martha Vaught gave a piece of this to me to try and I pushed it pretty hard. I did manage to cause a chunk of paper to rip away, but I just painted back over it!
Detail: Where I ripped a chunk out by accident... oops...
Have a great day!
