Florida Sunset, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


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

This is one of my favorite paintings; 
I think it's the St. John's River.
I say, "I think," because it just came out of my head,
but it reminds me of beautiful views from
Judi's condo at the Park Lane.
Of course this scene could be anywhere there is water.

Cheerfulness, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


12" x 16", Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, $200

This painting made me cheerful the whole time I was creating it.
The direction of petals and leaves, the movement implied even in the background, 
the extra color dots ornamenting the composition ~ all purposeful to create
a cheerful and dynamic piece of art.
I hope you find it to be life-giving, joy-giving.

Under the Sea, Mixed Media Just For Fun Painting by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


24" x 30", Mixed Media, $600

Lots of fun was had with this painting of a wary fish.
Over several months I played on this canvas with gesso,
then artists collage papers, acrylic paints, and finally, oil paints.
And once I had the title, the song from Little Mermaid played in my
head incessantly.  Got it your head now?

Abstract Ocean, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


4" x 5", Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, $60

Because of the great response I had with my $60 paintings,
I am offering one every Saturday.
This little fella was a self-imposed exercise in
painting as few strokes as possible ~
a discipline that helps to make each stroke intentional
and purposeful.

Abstract Seascape, Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


11" x 14", Oil, 11" x 14", $295

My favorite artists are those who hit the sweet spot between
representational and abstract;
this one approaches that goal.
As the new week begins,
I am looking forward to teaching my students,
walking in the fall weather
(YAY! we're under 100 degrees),
and reading the five books I've started.
(Yes, I do think I have adult-onset ADD;
it's ok, I start a lot of things.
And finish some too.)

Beach Dreams, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


16" x 20," Oil on Stretched Canvas, $600

I love the clouds in this beach scene, and love the thought 
of having such an expanse of beach to myself
to sit under an umbrella and paint or read.
Heading to the California beaches for a quick trip tomorrow.
Will get some sand in my flip flops, eat some fresh seafood, 
and get my "fix."
