Atlantic Ocean, Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

8" x 10" Oil on Linen, $195

I have only been able to paint in little bits of time the last few days,
and our Aussie continues to lick off any oil paintings she can reach. I have to remember to keep the studio door closed
so that my paintings are not "re-done" 
nor is the dog harmed from EATING OIL PAINT.
She took off a layer of paint on a large cloudscape with mountains below,
and I may have to incorporate some of her "improvements."
Anyway, as for the painting above,
I love the look of the ocean as a storm is rolling in;
the waves start to flicker a bit on top,
and one senses a roiling beneath the waves.
I hope I've captured some of the excitement I feel at these moments.
If you are interested in purchasing this painting,

gallery-style without all the musings:


  1. I have got this picture in my mind now of your dog licking paintings! Oh my goodness, I didn't know dogs would do that!

    This is a beautiful work Amy. The blue really pops.

  2. Great painting Amy!

  3. Thank you, both, dear artist buddies. I have to say, it is one of my favorites. Blessings on you both.
