Marvelous Night for a Moondance, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


SOLD!

9" x 12," Oil Paint and Handmade Paper, $60
Day 13 of 30/60 Challenge
I'm starting to use the word "challenge" now, because I'm
thirteen days into this deal, 
and realize I need to come up with seventeen more paintings.
This one has 1" edges (sides of the stretched canvas) that are painted
in the same blue as the sky.
Ready to hang or display on small easel or leaning against books
in a bookshelf.
This painting should not be stored where sunlight will hit it,
but in a place protected from the sun, as the papers could fade over
the years if exposed to sunlight.

Summer Bouquet, Sunflower and Mixed Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 8," Oil, $60
Day 8 of 30/60
Sunflowers in a cobalt blue vase seem to be a great combo.
Although I did not paint today, I wanted to include this one
in my 30/60 challenge to offer 30 days of $60 paintings.
It is an original oil painting, dry, and ready to ship out.
Today was a big-time rest day; I sat on the beach and dozed,
then I sat by the pool...and dozed.
Finally, I sat on the balcony...and yep, dozed away.
Wow.  How often does one have a day like this?
And all day long gazing at the Atlantic Ocean.
I am one blessed little girl.

Atlantic Ocean, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


SOLD!  Going to Jacksonville, FL

6" x 8," Acrylic on Canvas Panel, $60
I'm here!  On the Atlantic coast of Florida ~
just like that!
I sat in a chair way up in the air for about 4 -1/2 hours and
now I'm in my old stomping grounds.
Here is today's offering for 30/60;
Day 7 of 30 days of $60 paintings.
So far I've had really good response, for which I am grateful,
and also super happy that people desire original art.
I plan to paint en plein aire this week,
which means I'll be sitting on the sand painting.
Not quite as glamorous as "en plein aire" sounds,
but nonetheless it's great to paint the ocean while looking at the ocean!

Hibiscus, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse



6"x8," Oil on Canvas Panel, $60
Day 4 of 30/60
A common question/problem among my painter friends 
as well as my students is,
"How do I know when the painting is finished?"
Well....good question.
The answer can be quite tricky,
as that sweet spot between "unfinished" and "overdone"
is a delicate balance.
I prefer a certain freshness that hasn't lost the liveliness
of the early strokes of paint.
As one of my teachers says, "It takes two to do a painting.
One to paint it, and one to say 'Stop. Now.'"
30/60 is my personal challenge to offer
30 days of paintings at $60 each.
I hope you find something you like in these 30 days
(leading up to my....60th bd; yes, it's hard to swallow,
but, hey, life is great.  Especially when I get to paint.)

Abstracted Red Flowers, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


16" x 20," Oil on Stretched Canvas, $600
Interesting how abstracted forms can actually be harder
to paint than strictly representational forms.
It is a challenge to reduce subjects to an abstract expression,
one that enjoy attempting, by the way.
These abstracted flowers, the upside-down L composition,
and the textured background are my favorite elements - 
well, including the vibrant red flowers of course.
