This is a bright and cheerful painting - oil on linen. It is an original oil painting with vibrant greens and deep reds. It is 6 x 12 inches and ready for framing. I Photoshopped a frame in so you could see what it would look like.
I wanted to share a link with my blogging friends. Below is a link to over three hundred original artworks by very talented artists. They are auctioning their artwork for the benefit of those who are suffering after the tragedy in Japan. I will place one for auction after this weekend of painting. This is a great opportunity to do some good and to get amazing art as the bonus.
Peggy is very well known as an artist and a teacher. She is coming to North Carolina (Charlotte) in May and there is very limited space for her classes. I am pleased to be able to take the time to go to this wonderful class and learn more about value, hue, composition and simplification.
I have noticed that all the paintings that I am drawn to are always simple but well thought out. Here is a link to Peggy's work. Her husband is also a fabulous artist as well.
They turned out very well from the printer and the colors are very true to the original artwork. They are approximately 6 x 4 inch with white envelopes and the inside is blank. Priced reasonably at MY ETSY.
In my painting giveaway, I was astonished to receive 100 entries into a drawing within one week. It was so much fun to hear from art lovers throughout the world. It was so much fun that I want to do it again soon. Thanks to everyone who entered on my Facebook Fan Page.
As I mentioned, I will have a drawing at the end of the month and give this 8 x 10 inch painting away. To enter, just go to my FACEBOOK Fan Page and hit the like button. If we aren't already "friends" on FB, just send me a request. Hope you guys will enjoy this fun exercise. I find that giving art away is so much fun!!!!
