Rough Waters, Monoprints in Acrylic by Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Monoprint, $125

This past week I have been teaching my sixth grade students
monoprinting.
They are loving this process, and thrilled with their results.

So in my free time this week, I've been working on monoprints, too.
Fields, mountains, lakes, and of course, the ocean.
This is my favorite one from this week's output.

Birch Trees, Contemporary Monoprint by Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Monoprint, $65

We've had more of a winter than usual here in Arizona this year.
Just a little over an hour north of Phoenix,
the birch trees are bare, the air is still,
and one can often spot a snowman
left behind to entertain passers-by.

This simple depiction of the birch trees
evokes the feel of winter in Northern Arizona
and elsewhere, I hope.

Calm after the Storm, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8" Acrylic, $125

Once again, it has been a long time since I've posted. My new job as Art teacher to Kindergarteners, and First, Second, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Graders,
has filled my weeks.
It is gratifying work if demanding.
This past week, as one little second grade boy was working,
he said,
"This is the best art project ever!"
That did my heart good.

This morning I'm trying to make sense of the clutter in my studio.
I am reposting this little painting as it's one of my favorites,
and it reminds me to do my own Art
for the good of me.

Swimming, Abstract Contemporary Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Acrylic on Paper, $65

It's been a LOOOOOONG time since I posted.

My new job as Art teacher to 260 students, grades K-2 and 6-8, 
has kept me rather occupied. I love it (most of the time), and
am so energized by the creativity and originality these young
people produce in their artwork.

Little by little, I'm getting into the groove, figuring out how
to manage it all, and start to have time for my own artwork.

This is a monoprint I did last week.  Just a reminder:
a monoprint is a one-of-a-kind original painting 
that is done via a printing method rather than 
a direct painting method. There are no other copies or 
"prints" of this painting, just this one.

LMK if interested in purchasing.

Thanks for visiting!

Beach, Contemporary Seascape Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


18" x 24", Oil, $800

As you know, I could paint the ocean and the beach everyday,
and not get tired of the subject.
Especially when it's 108 degrees outside as it is now, here in the desert.

As I prepare for my new position as Art Teacher for grades K-2 and 6-8
YIKES
I haven't had as much time to paint. 
But this is my latest, and I'm pretty happy with it.
I can almost feel the powdery sand all over my feet,
and almost hear the comforting sound of the surf.

Sunrise, Contemporary Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


12" x 16" Oil, $250

Lots of texture and complimentary colors
give this contemporary sunrise painting
its punch.
As I often do, I began the painting,
put it aside for awhile,
pulled it back out to add some layers of paint,
and repeated this process over several weeks.

Hawaii Dreams, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse




11" x 14" Acrylic on W/C Paper, $125

100+ degree weather makes me yearn for tropical climes all the more.
Can't think of a more ideal place than Hawaii.

This painting started as a monoprint,
painting with brush and palette knife followed,
and it just looked like Hawaii when I finished it.
I want to jump into the surf right about now.
