Notre Dame Cathedral, Paintings of France by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8," Acrylic, $125

This magnificent cathedral in Paris was one of my favorite
spots during the year I spent as a student there, 1973.
My best friend and musical mentor, Courtney Zirkle,
introduced me to the weekly organ concerts on Sunday evenings
at Notre Dame.
Thirty-three years later, while visiting Paris with our oldest children,
we were delighted to enjoy one of these concerts that were
still being held every Sunday.
Thanks, Cody!

Afternoon Storm, Landscape and Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 10," Acrylic, $195
Abstract Seascape Paintings
Contemporary Ocean Paintings
I miss the afternoon storms in Florida,
the glistening sand reflecting the light of the sky,
the roiling waves as the wind picks up,
the cooling relief of the water on a hot day....
I'm homesick for the beach.
So.  I paint and visit it virtually - and often - here in the middle of the desert.

Dust Storm Brewin' - Southwest Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


10" x 20" x 1.5" - Acrylic, $195

This is one of those "just for fun" paintings that turned out pretty cool.
If you've never experienced a dust storm,
the sky starts to get kind of lavender, and the air changes how everything feels.
The 1.5" sides are painted the same purply-blue color, so this is ready to hang.
No frame needed, but it can take a frame of you like.

Seaglassy, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8" Oil, $125

I never seem to NOT want to paint an ocean/beach scene;
and when landlocked in the desert and the temp is 112,
I can almost smell the cool salt air as I paint.
This one has an acrylic underpainting, and is finished with oil over top.
I find that this method often works well.
