Poppies, Contemporary Landscape and Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
4" x 6", Acrylic, $95
Red poppies burst out from green surroundings with complimentary colors adding to the energy. I'm always trying to find a between-representational-and-abstract location in artwork. It's a challenge.

Evergreen 3, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Acrylic on Canvas Panel, $60
This contemporary rendition of an evergreen tree has lots of texture and gold flecks that are difficult to capture with the camera. The white acrylic paint was added to tar gel in order to "drip" the snow atop the branches, a bit like making a sand castle with drippy wet sand.

Christmas Tree, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 6" x 1.5", Oil, $60
This contemporary tree, painted with juicy R&F pigment sticks, is my favorite tree I've painted so far.  I like the loose brushstrokes, the few bright red spots, and the gold light peeking through the warm white background. The result is a freshness, like a brisk day in northern climes. (And I'm happy to paint that illusion; having experienced it enough living in Illinois, New York, and Germany.)

Land of Enchantment, Southwest Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
12" x 16", Oil on Stretched Canvas, $295
Painted with juicy R&F pigment sticks, this landscape painting says New Mexico to me. I don't understand how the sky can "be bigger" here in the Southwest, but for this kid from Florida, it truly is. The clouds are enormous, the land goes on and on, the distant mountains are luscious.

Baby Barrel Cactus, Southwest Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 8", Oil, $95
This little baby was painted a few months ago after a trip to Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. It's time to go again and see the luminarias and the new exhibit by Chihuly, and drink warm cider, and hear live music. I enjoy the test of capturing the desert beauties.

Flowers in My Dreams, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 8", Oil, $125
This little piece has a dream-like quality to me, hence the title. Painting intuitively, just playing with paint and colors and textures, and then seeing what happens is the most contemplative and enjoyable artwork for me. I have been sorting, packing, entering into changing-homes-mode, so quite preoccupied and too busy for the goodness of making art. But scheduling a couple of hours tomorrow for said healthy pursuit. Let me know if you'd like this one; it's framed in brushed silver. amy.whitehouse@me.com And to see more, please visit AmyWhitehousePaintings.com

Baby Cactus, Contemporary Southwest Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 8" x 1.5", Oil, $175
The intense Arizona sun obliterates the lit part of this little barrel cactus. The mean spikes were painted with the edge of a palette knife, and the soft petals with a bristle brush. I was going for the contrast of the papery, lovely flower surrounded by the brutal thorns, and the bright, bright sun that makes it all such a scintillating scene.

Beach Walk, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
16" x 20", Oil, $500
This not-too-abstract seascape painting was created from a photograph shared by my favorite high school English teacher. The photo was taken at Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, and was a bit of a challenge. But I'm very happy with the result. I used the medium Megilp by Gamblin, and worked on it for several days to get the transparency of the water.

Florida Sunset, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 8", Acrylic on Canvas Panel, $125
This is one of my favorite paintings;  I think it's the St. John's River. I say, "I think," because it just came out of my head, but it reminds me of beautiful views from Judi's condo at the Park Lane. Of course this scene could be anywhere there is water.

Cheerfulness, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
12" x 16", Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, $200
This painting made me cheerful the whole time I was creating it. The direction of petals and leaves, the movement implied even in the background,  the extra color dots ornamenting the composition ~ all purposeful to create a cheerful and dynamic piece of art. I hope you find it to be life-giving, joy-giving.

Under the Sea, Mixed Media Just For Fun Painting by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
24" x 30", Mixed Media, $600
Lots of fun was had with this painting of a wary fish. Over several months I played on this canvas with gesso, then artists collage papers, acrylic paints, and finally, oil paints. And once I had the title, the song from Little Mermaid played in my head incessantly.  Got it your head now?
