A Secret Path

Secret Path, 8x10" acrylic on canvas

ready to frame

This one may look somewhat familiar to the post below, Glade, which is done with a different media and technique.  The basic landscape is the same, but I've used some of my abstraction ideas of circles and dots to create a less than abstract landscape!   I love the chance to mix colors by juxtaposing them right on the canvas.   To me, though a tedious application method, really does give a somewhat joyous and carefree outcome!

matted in white and ready to frame
($10.00 shipping in the US;  IL residents please add 8.25% sales tax)

There's something very mysterious about the deep shadows of the woods, and the bright light of a clearing.  Here I've tried to capture with color the depth of shadow contrasted with the beauty of sunlight!   Maybe its wishful thinking here in the middle of January!

January Featured Painting!

January's Featured Painting! 

Winter Bandit,  5x5" acrylic on canvas

Ready to frame 

This is a little different approach for me.  Its a highly stylized cedar waxwing ... with an abstract background.  The colors are bright, which is just what is needed in the long stretches of winter grayness!  

This little painting has been listed at its "featured" price just for the month of January.  Its a great opportunity to own an original work of art for a great price.  After January, if it hasn't sold, it will go to its regular price.  

Happy New Year! 
I hope you have a wonderful beginning to 2012!
