Favorite Sunflower, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
11" x 14" Print of Oil Painting, $79 This painting was done in the negative painting style taught to me by fellow artist Amy Tuso of Fountain Hills, AZ. I started by  brushing on various colors at random all over the canvas. Then I took a look and seemed to discern a sunflower hiding in there. So I painted the negative space, or the "air" around the flower, and let the sunflower emerge.  This is one of my favorite paintings, so I had some high quality prints made on heavy, beautiful paper, in order to make this painting available at a very affordable price. Please let me know if you would like to purchase one at amy.whitehouse@me.com

Cloud Rising, Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image

This was such a fun piece to put together; it reminds me of my favorite artist, Vincent Van Gogh, during his Japanese prints stage.
My adult students were amazing today, all working on  different subjects, all expressing their vision with wonderful results. I do love my job.

And tomorrow we'll have two of our "big kids" over for March Madness and cookout. Thank you for viewing my artwork; please let me know your thoughts and critiques.

Sea Oats 2, Fernandina Beach, Seascapa Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Oil, $175
Painting time this past week has been minimal; sometimes I feel I get the best ones done at those times, maybe because I only have a little time and I know "It's now or never." Anyway, I love the way this one turned out, and hope you do too. If interested in purchasing this one, please contact me at amy.whitehouse@me.com

Tea Time, Still Life Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
16" x 20" Oil, $350 This scene makes me think of my genteel great-aunts, Jenny Ray and Florence Clark, and a particular visit I had as a girl. I was over at Aunt Florence's home, probably around 1959...and it was tea time. She asked if I would like lemon or milk in my cup of tea, and I responded "both." Aunt Florence said that would not be good, but I was confidently insistent. Learned my lesson! This painting is available for purchase: amy.whitehouse@me.com

Lake Side, Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
9" x 12", Oil, $175 I am liking the immediacy of painting with the pure pigment oil sticks; My hope is that the viewer can interact more with the painting than if I "spell it all out". Who knows when I'll change to something altogether different, but for now the abstract quality and freshness appeals to me. If interested in this painting, please contact me at amy.whitehouse@me.com

Rose, Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Oil, $150
Painted with a palette knife, I was seeking a cross between representational and abstract.  I also went for a very neutral background so that the star of the show would pop.

Wild Sunflower, Contemporary Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
Good things today: I gained a lovely, talented new adult painting student, Betty. Mark and I had an evening walk during the last light of another spectacular Arizona sunset, and heard the wild yipping of what sounded like a LOT of coyotes. Chloe got bathed. Delicious burritos for dinner thanks to Mark. Girl Scout Thin Mints for dessert.
As for the painting, I'm not quite ready to part with this sunflower, but I've been working with Phoenix Photo Lab for a few weeks on making beautiful copies (they also make prints for Phoenix Art Museum). If you are interested in purchasing an 11" x 14" limited edition print of the above painting, please let me know. I will be selling them for $50 each. The high-quality print (giclee) will come with a white mat and foam core backing  ready to frame as you wish. amy.whitehouse@me.com
