Green Symphony

11.2018-002This 6 x 8 painting on panel was inspired by a sketch I made in Randolph County, around the area of Maynard, Arkansas.  Notice the bent mail box.  It used to be a favorite prank of teenagers to try to hit mail boxes.  I’ve had to replace several!  Click hereto see the price of the painting or to learn more about it.

This is an oil painting on a 6 x 6 inch linen stretched canvas. For more information about the painting, click here.

Many people think that oil paintings are better than acrylic paintings but this is not  true and I would not worry about acrylics v.s. oils when selecting a painting.  Many acrylic paintings are hard to tell from oil paintings and can often be painted exactly like oil paintings depending on the skill of the artist.  Both kinds of media are long lasting and can be framed without glass.

You should also not be concerned about whether the painting is on stretched canvas or on a panel.  I will write about this in next week’s blog.

Love for the Land

At only 6 x 8 inches this is a small painting!  But there is a lot to see in it.  Notice the fence posts on either side of the small building and the way the narrow path leads up to the door. This scene was inspired by my visit to Randolph County in east Arkansas around the area of Maynard, a small town.  For further information, click here.

Fall in Heber Springs, Arkansas

7.9.2019-013 (Large)This is a large painting–24 x 36–and could make a very striking focal point for a room!  It will look good in a barn wood frame.  The canvas was given to me by a very good friend who lives close to Heber Springs, Arkansas so I decided to name the painting for her!  The foliage is very heavily textured.  For more information, click here.
