A little seascape painting and memories of a wonderful trip, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Palette Knife Painting

Fresh off a trip to the Florida Keys, I returned inspired by the gorgeous water colors. I started a new series I call "Coral Reef". This is the first piece of the series entitled "Wakes".
purchase here

 I was captivated with the colors of the sea as we rode out to the coral reef.



The boat wake followed us out seven miles from shore.




It was my first trip to the keys in many years, and a had forgotten the lure of the tropical beauty.

Thanks for viewing my blog today

Printmaking on Paper, Original Art "TORTOISE BEETLE 1" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


This Tortoise Beetle is the second in the set of Artists' Proofs I have done as I experiment with Solar Etchings. Solar printing  allows me to do my drawings on paper, create a negative scan of the drawing and then burn the images onto a plate that is exposed to light. The result is similar to traditional intaglio printing but I don't have to work in reverse or worry about making a mistake on the copper plate. Once the plate is exposed to light, the image is burned into the plate. I then ink the plate, wipe it clean and the ink that remains is left in the "burned" recessed areas of the plate. The plate is hand pulled through a traditional press and the remaining ink creates the image.

Horse Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Horse Portrait, SOLD

I have been trying to expand my horizons by painting new subject matter.  This is my second horse painting.


SOLD
I have to say I did enjoy the challenge.  He looked so spirited and I got excited about his red coat against a green background.

Add caption

It's always fun to stretch a little, try something new.  I would like to do more of these, but I think my biggest challenge will be getting interesting reference images to work from. We have plenty of horses in our neighborhood, but they usually run to the other end of the pasture when they see me approach with my trusty camera.

Do you have any special techniques for getting images of animals?

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Today I received an email from a collector who purchased one of my small paintings through Artful Home, one of the online gallery sites that sells much of my work.  I am so very touched that she reached out to me to let me know how much the painting means to her.

This is the email I received:

Hi. How are you? I just purchased your painting "Calm Before The Storm" and I asked that Artful Home relay my message but I want to make sure that you got it. I love it so very much. I am terminally ill and I have chosen your painting for a place of honor... that I will see each and every hour that I am still here. It is so very wonderful and you are so very talented. I wanted you to know how much your work is appreciated. Take Care.

As artists, we frequently work alone and are not always aware of how the product of our hearts and hands will affect someone else.  From now on, I will make a conscious effort to be very mindful of that fact.  Our work is much more than paint and canvas...it conveys a spiritual message that touches hearts.  How amazing is that?!!

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with a talent that blesses others.

"Historic Fishing Village" Original Historic Door, New England Fishing Village by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

I love to look at the lovely homes in the historic fishing villages of New England. These beautiful old homes carry such a story of life in an old seaport town. This one was particularly special. It had beautiful perennial gardens everywhere. The gardens and the stone walkways were placed with great thought and nurtured lovingly. This house overlooked the water and the boats at dock in the harbor. I'm always drawn back to this place and I imagine the family who lived here waiting for their fisherman to return home.

Still Life, Watercolor Fine Art Painting "2 EGGPLANTS" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Purple is by far my favorite color! I had fun doing these 2 eggplants as a part of my online watercolor class demonstrations. I used lots of strong color to get the bold dark almost black purple and hardly any color on the variegated one. It was challenging and I enjoy pushing myself in different directions, learning just how far I can push the paint. This listing is for the original and ships free in the continental USA. All other inquires please contact the artist for shipping costs.

Both experiences will enrich your day.

Daily Painting, Fiddlehead Fern Painting, Small OIl Painting, 11x14 Oil NFS

This small oil painting came about because of a trip I took to North Carolina.. I used to live in Florida,  where we didn't get a lot of spring flowers, and when I saw this bed of ferns coming to life, I had to paint them.

NFS
I was surprised how quickly they grew, with obvious growth from day to day.
I decided to use a dark background to really highlight the ferns and keep my palette restricted to greens, blues and purples. I have been pleased with the results of this painting, which is a departure from my usual style. Blues are very difficult to photograph accurately and although the background color appears to be a deep blue, the actual color is close to a black,
This piece is available  at the link above as an original, or here as a giclee'  canvas print in the size of your choice.
Thanks for viewing my blog today.  I hope you take time every day,  to smell the roses.
