White-Tipped Mountains, Contemporary Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6"x6" Monoprint, $65
Some people have been asking me, "What IS a monoprint?" It is a one-time print made with acrylic paints,  there is only one original and no other prints. I use high quality print-making paper and I sign each one usually with unobtrusive initials so as not to interrupt the art itself. The art may be framed with or without a mat, and I use standard sizes, 8" x 10" or 6" x 6", so that mats/frames may be standard or custom. Many of my monoprints are abstract, all are contemporary in style.

Spring Vision, Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 6" Monoprint, $65
In addition to painting, I have been monoprinting  for several months now, and just having a blast doing it. This contemporary look was achieved with multiple "pulls," or layers, of printing with different acrylic paints.

Lately I have been doing a lot of monoprinting and enjoying developing my skills in this new medium. With teenage girls, our house on the market, crazy dogs, and more teaching opportunities,  monoprinting offers a quicker art fix!
Below are my most recent pieces, Wipeout and Wipeout 2, each $65, each 6"x 6"

Florida, Seascape and Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel, $150
This abstract seascape has lots of texture which speaks of the sensual, earthy feel of spending time at the ocean. Though this is not a new piece, it is one of my favorites. Having done an art fair today to introduce children to collage on canvas,  I couldn't paint today.

What I have been doing for the past six weeks while not posting, is monoprinting. This has become a fascinating method of creating art, and it takes a little less time  than painting.  I like to think that one discipline only helps the other.
Below are a couple of recent monoprints:

Forest Dreams 8" x 10" Monoprint, $95

Dogwood Hope 8" x 10" Monoprint, $95

May Floral, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10," Oil, $150
This contemporary floral painted itself fairly easily, it just seemed ready to go and express itself. Greens and whites were the idea, with some complimentary red/rust/gold colors in the background. But once I added some blues, it began to sing.

Poppies and Oranges, Contemporary Still Life by AZ Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
20" x 20" x 1.5"  Oil, $700
After a bit of a hiatus from painting, I am back! Life has been busy, overwhelming, wonderful. But this contemporary still life with oranges, poppies, and a turquoise jar, was simply a joy to paint today. Please let me know if you would like to have it in your home. The 1.5" sides are painted in the same color as the background,  so it is ready to hang - no frame needed.
