New Mini's at the

CCAA Mall Gallery

Hi Everyone!

Computer cooties slowed me down a bit online, but we're cleaned up and ready to go! I've been continuing with the need to paint spring until it arrives. So there are new spring themed mini paintings freshly arrived at the CCAA Mall Gallery. I also have several beach scene minis that i dropped off last week.  Look for new Easter themed minis in the next weeks.

The Gallery is opened 11am – 7 pm, Tuesdays, Thursday, and Saturdays.

Daffodil Painting

Daffodil Painting

Hi Everyone!

Just finished a new painting.  I always enjoy looking for the first little daffodil stem buds that appear after the snow melts.  When they finally bloom, you know spring is on it's way. After all the cold, snow and ice this winter, I am really looking forward to seeing them in full bloom. So until then, I'll just paint  them as I wish they were.   : – )

You can find this finished matted painting at my Etsy shop.

New Painting Up

Hi Everyone!

I have a new painting up in my online ship at Etsy.  Daffodils on a mini canvas – a little touch of spring in the midst of snow and ice. 

It has already been featured in a wonderful spring treasury called I Need Spring!.  Enjoy!

 

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley

Hi Everyone!

I have a new painting up on Etsy.  If you are local you may have seen it hanging in a juried show at the Chester County Art Association or in the CCAA Exton Square Mall gallery.

Lily of the Valley from my gardenThis painting is based on a large patch of lily of the valley in a past home's yard. The lily of the valley bloomed every spring, hidden in the shade, under pines trees and rhododendrons. They are a beautiful flower – so dainty and tiny.  I tried to capture their daintiness and the tropical look of their leaves in this painting.

I used a medium gray base for the flowers and built up with lighter grays to white highlights to capture the daintiness of the lilies.  I used blue greens for the leaves with raspberry pinks in the shadows of the leaves to create depth to the painting. I  framed the painting with a antiqued gold frame that has flecks of maroon to emphasize the depth of the leaves and highlight the daintiness of the lilies.

A shop owner on Etsy included my painting in her beautiful treasury. A Etsy treasury is a grouping of 12 items from different shops  based on a theme. It's always a compliment to be including in one of these. If you like lily of the valley, you may enjoy this treasury:  Sweet smelling Lily of the Valley
