for material for paintings, this being #1.

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


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.

In addition to painting, I have been monoprinting 
for several months now,
and just having a blast doing it.

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,

Florida, Seascape and Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


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.

If interested in purchasing this little piece,

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

May Floral, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


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


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.
