Baby Cactus, Contemporary Southwest Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 8" x 1.5", Oil, $175

The intense Arizona sun obliterates the lit part of this little
barrel cactus.
The mean spikes were painted with the edge of a palette knife,
and the soft petals with a bristle brush.
I was going for the contrast of the papery, lovely flower
surrounded by the brutal thorns,
and the bright, bright sun
that makes it all such a scintillating scene.

Because I seem to be having trouble with the
Pay Now button,
please e-mail me if you are interested

Beach Walk, Abstract Seascape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


16" x 20", Oil, $500

This not-too-abstract seascape painting was created from a photograph
shared by my favorite high school English teacher.
The photo was taken at Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, and was a bit of a challenge.
But I'm very happy with the result.
I used the medium Megilp by Gamblin,
and worked on it for several days to get the transparency of the water.
