One of the wonderful things about where I live is the support for the local art community. Of the many opportunities given to the local artists, one of them is a thing called Art in Public Places. This year, I have 7 pieces that will be up in various businesses/locations and for sale in Stanwood and on Camano Island.
Here are the pieces and the locations where they can be seen and purchased.
I love elephants. I love painting them. Alas, I do not live where elephants live, so I must use reference photos for my elephants. I’m not sure why I never paint them in the grays of their true color. I think I just see them as being creatures of great colors and so when I start to paint them, the colors beckon my brushes and my elephants become walking rainbows. Maybe I am painting their spirits. I’m not real sure, but I have a feeling that they would approve.
“Day Tripping” is a family of these majestic creatures embarking on a small family holiday. It can be seen and is for sale for $245.00 at Everett Clinic at 7205 265th St NW, Stanwood, WA 98292
After seeing a few photos of barn owls stretching their wings, I started to realize with their unusual facial features, combined with the wing in front of their face that they looked like a Phantom or Secret Agent. So, I sat down at the drawing table and began. The shadows in his face just seemed to fill in on their own giving him the more Phantom quality. Hence he became “Phantom”.
“Phantom” can be seen and is for sale for $195.00 at the Camano Island Country Club at 1243 Beach Dr., Camano Island
