Autumn Skies II

Update:  Sold!
“Autumn Skies II”
6″x12 original acrylic on stretched canvas frame.
Another windswept tree, but this time the leaves have taken flight and have been whisked up and around the moon. The sky colors of this piece have all sorts of warm fall hues. The landscape is cooled off by the contrasting blues of the hill. This auction runs for 3 days and ends Sunday (Oct. 6th).

Autumn Skies

This week’s penny auction.  Update:  Sold!
“Autumn Skies” 6″x12″” original acrylic on canvas painting.   There will be a series of a few Autumn Skies that you can catch at auction, though I won’t reveal them until the day of the auction 🙂   This piece is a landscape of browns and greens with a shooting star off in the distance.  I’ve brought back one of my little houses under a windswept tree, with autumn leaves getting carried away in the wind.

“Cherish”

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.  🙂
