Ballerina Resting, Figurative Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8", Oil on Canvas Panel, $125

It's been a good week with sales of paintings
and lots of activity at On The Edge Gallery.
The best parts of my week have been the painting times I've had.
My painting students continue to wow me with their
innate talent and creativity.
I will miss them as many leave the hot desert for
cooler climes up north over the summer.

As real life goes, this week has had its disappointments
and challenges.
Raising teens, battling the effects of the recession,
searching for best ways to deal with difficulties =
fatigue.

I'm glad Sunday is a day of rest.

Precious Pup, Animal Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 10" Acrylic, $45

Summer Spectacular Sale this weekend!
I will post paintings at reduced prices today and tomorrow,
and hope that someone scoops up something they love.
Temps are going back and forth to the triple digits
and the summer doldrums have hit
(and it's only May 18)...
Everyone at my house is taking naps every day;
could be a summer of rest and reading?
Anyway, I have been working on a couple of large
paintings that I hope to finish in the next week.
But steady and slow due to teaching,
driving teenagers around,
and needing that warm-weather siesta most every day.
Thank you for taking a gander at my postings!

Today marks the 13th and final day of my personal fundraiser
for the Teachers Missions Trip to Tanzania this summer.

I'm proud to call 3 of these courageous women my friends.
I chose my favorite piece for this last day.
When night falls at the beach, one is never sure what may be underneath
bare feet during a moonlit stroll - seaweed, jellyfish, sand crabs...

Beach Path, Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


10" x 10" x 1.5", Oil, $150

This painting has a simple composition, yet interesting details as one looks closely.
The 1-1/2" sides are painted in the ochre/green hues of the bottom corners,
so this painting is ready to hang or set on a mantle, bookshelf, dresser, whatever.
I painted this one in several layers, burnishing in between the layers of paint,
so that it has a soft but depth-filled look.
If you are interested in purchasing this painting,
let me know at
This painting is my offering for Day 9 of my personal fundraiser
"Tanzania 2013"
which benefits a team of teachers traveling to Tanzania
to train teachers at several schools for 17 days.
50% of all sales during this 13 day period will go to the team.
Thank you for visiting my site today; I really appreciate it!
