Some Enchanted Evening

“Fly me to the moon”, House said. I’m not sure what these two are up to, but looks like house wants to catch the moon and take it somewhere. The original painting will head to an art show in Taipei in the spring of 2015.  10 signed limited edition prints are available here!


This weeks penny auction.  Update: Sold!
“Cherish” – 16×20 original canvas painting on 1.5″ wooden stretcher bar frame.
This weeks auction is a jeweled tone landscape filled with little whimsical whatnots.  A little black capped chickadee gazes upward to a hanging heart ornament.  This piece contains a lot of the traditional elements I usually include in my landscape paintings with some added magical charm in the tree 🙂
Artist Note-
Reason behind the title:  I mentioned in the listing that little birds warm my heart.  The original Greek word for “cherish” is thalpo – which means “to keep warm”.   No, I am not a linguist – just a random fact I happened upon while painting this piece so that’s how the name came about.  🙂
