Yesterday our youngest turned 13, today we celebrated our 31st anniversary....lots of celebration going on. It's been a wonderful Christmas season with lots of socializing, eating scrumptious food, hearing from friends all over the world, thoughtful gifts given and received, and lovely weather to boot! And now I am ready to get back in the studio and paint. Hope to post some new work these next few days. Happy New Year!

Bethlehem Night, Mixed Media

48"x24", $600
I wanted to try to imagine on canvas the scene of Bethlehem 2000 years ago. Looking up photos online, I saw that there are low hills there. I used a variety of printed tissue papers as my surface treatment including Happy Birthday, Christmas trees, Santas, etc. Then I used acrylic paints to depict the scene. I can only imagine what the Magi saw and how they followed that star.

Pumpkin 11 Oil Painting by AZ Artist Amy Whitehouse

$300 ~ I finished this painting this morning, the 2.5" edges are painted in the same green as the background, and it is ready to hang. Pumpkins are obviously one of my favorite subjects and I enjoy exploring various ways I can represent the fall staple. Also, it has been brought to my attention that I need to re-visit Vincent Van Gogh's letters. Somehow I can get waylaid in my thinking that good art will be rewarded in material gain. Vincent sold about one painting in his life, yet how many people have been delighted, inspired, and enamored by his artwork?

Thank you to all who give me such positive comments. It keeps me going.
