A softer version of my passion for palms.

in ankle-deep water the other day.

Ocean Waves, Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8" Oil, $150

Vacationing in FL with family and soaking up the sun
as well as the different looks of the ocean - morning, evening, with and without clouds,
from afar, standing in the waves,
thinking about how I would paint the reflections of the clouds on the waves 
under the different circumstances.
Today I hope to do some figurative painting on the beach,
hope to get a family member to pose in a beach chair,
reading a book or just looking out to sea.
Not a bad job if you can get it!
We'll see how I fare.

Thanks for taking a look today.
I welcome your feedback.

Surfer Dude, Figurative & Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


10"x 10"x1.5" Oil on gallery wrap canvas, $200

Though I may not be able to surf, despite many attempts back in the day,
(and a big scare by a huge manta ray)
I love the IDEA of surfing, and can watch movies of surfers doing their thing
for a surprisingly large amount of time.  Also, a huge fan of Bethany Hamilton.
Painting this today was perfect as I am packing for a beach vacation and am
SO EXCITED.

BTW I have learning to boogie-board rather late in life,
and find it exhilarating.  I am so ready.

Home Is Where the Food Is, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 16" Oil, $125

We have been on vacation in Sedona with all our kids (6),
hiking, cooking, playing games, watching movies,
eating, of course, and enjoying being together
(most of the time!)  Ahh...family.  

The hikes have been spectacular, and today I'm laying low,
reading, sipping tea, catching up on some favorite blogs,
and letting my muscles have a day to recover.

I added some strokes to the above painting and feel it is improved.
Hope you feel the same!
