I spent a lot of my summer hours indoors this year...painting my little heart out. When we first moved here from well north of Seattle I planned to hate summers, but then fireflies happened. And cicadas, butterflies, steamy warm tank top evenings. We put in a swimming pool deep enough to stay cool and summer became my favorite season! It was the flip version of winters in the NW...too weathery to get much done so why not relax and read, breathe, be? But now...now that I am head over heels in love with painting...well, it was enough to woo me away from poolside and here is the result:
These are my Washington State paintings; studio work from photos I took in one of the most beautiful counties in America.
Of course, a new series of umbrella paintings...they are so fun to do and very popular.
These six paintings are in the style of Frank Baggett, a talented Tennessee artist, mentor and friend. He so graciously gives his students permission to apply his style and techniques, as well as exhibit and sell their creations.
Oh, Tuscany! It is such a wondrous place and I have finally begun to studio paint from the photographs we took.
And finally, here are the first two paintings in my Men@ Work series...plus one more on my easel right now.
Thank you for viewing my art! You are appreciated so much!!
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
