As you wish.... this is my son and girlfriend. I saw her post on Instagram and knew it would be a nice painting. So I decided to surprise them with one for Christmas. The title comes from one of our favorite movies. Anyone recognize it? The princess bride... it has something for everyone! Action, comedy, drama, a beautiful princess, handsome pirate and my favorite, a love story. This painting also has a hidden Mickey. An easy one...
Painting challenge is over, and the last step to challenge is to make a collage of all the paintings together. Do you have a favorite one? I would love to hear if one speaks to you. Its hard to have a favorite for me... they were created because I saw them in person or in a photo and they intrigued me to create art. So I don't have a particular favorite but if I was pressed I would maybe say the lion and the donkeys, as they have a happy ending. Who doesn't love a happy ending? If you found one painting you really enjoyed I would love the hear it!
This was a scene on Porter Pond Road last fall. There is something welcoming about swings.....like they are just waiting to take you away. To a time when you were young with no responsibilities besides learning your ABC's or what was for lunch. I liked the beautiful tree in full fall bloom with the swing waiting for you. Hope you like it too! I painted a larger one last year, so you are not seeing things, I did another, for those that are very observant. I am in the home stretch for the challenge, thank goodness! For every painting you see, there are also many that you don't see. So these challenges are lots of fun, but also lots of work. That's why I appreciate those that "like" my posts and love getting comments. Thanks to those that take the time out to do it! Its very appreciated! Once this is dry, it will be available at ARTicles Gallery, in Danielson, Ct.
Harper's Mill- A picturesque scene from one of my favorite places to visit....The heron was actually there, he posed for me! Anyone know where this is? This is available in my Etsy shoppe.
Ok- Please don't get mad at me for this one! I just wanted to do a series of these boots, not trying to push winter or the holidays on you. I am not a fan of holiday stuff this soon either! This one is drying, will get the ribbon treatment and then will be available in my etsy shoppe.
This is another version of the beautiful dress I painted a few painting challenges ago. I love the purples in this one. Who can resist a beautiful dress with a dreamy chiffon overlay? Not me...... This one is available in my etsy shoppe. Please click on link below to see purchasing info.
This is a local horse rescue, the Hay Burr Inn, in Plainfield, Ct. They posted this pic one day, and I just loved it. Who can resist a country painting with laundry? Then add in some adorable ponies, and you have a painting! This rescue helps lots of horses in need. Saving horses from neglect or at auctions and on there way to slaughter, this little rescue helps as much as they can. This painting will be donated to help this rescue.
