Ocean Dip, Contemporary Abstract Landscape Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Monoprint, $65

Driving home from teaching painting classes all day
in 108 degree heat
all I could think of was "water"/"ocean"/"coolness"
hence these three blue-green watery monoprints.


Incoming Boogie
6" x 6" Monoprint, $65


Desert Mirage
6" x 6" Monoprint, $65

Each of these monoprints has a clean 1" - 3" border
or can be matted right up to the image.
Each one is the only one that will be produced,
hence the name "monoprint."

Rocky Road, Contemporary Landscape Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Monoprint, $65

Making art late at night because days are filled with
driving teens around to activities,
teaching painting classes,
cleaning house for showings,
etc.
But by 10 p.m. I am SO READY
to get some art done,
because I've been trying to get to it
forever...
so this is one of my late night efforts.
And I'm pretty happy with it.

Alpine Day, Contemporary Landscape Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

aerial perspective
give this little piece a sense of distance.

gold metallic acrylic, and very vibrant color.

Alpine Spring, Contemporary Landscape Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 10" Monoprint, $95

Endless fun and unlimited possibilities
abound with monoprinting.
Alpine Spring had a couple of "pulls"
to get the different colors,
painting on the Gelli plate,
and then stamping and brushwork 
to add details in foreground.
I've been teaching private students
this method of making art,
and everyone loves it.

Azo Afternoon, Contemporary Landscape Monoprints by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6" x 6" Monoprint, $65

The sun has been glaring and burning the past few days
here in the Valley of the Sun.
Dogs and plants and humans are drooping.
But for painting?  Inspiring.
The tiny bit of turquoise may be suggesting
a caught kite from windy days previous.
Though a traditional subject,
the treatment with pronounced texture
is quite contemporary.
And gold metallic paint brings palpable light to the scene.

Boo's Tree, Contemporary Monoprint by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


6"x 6" Monoprint, $45

Having re-read To Kill A Mockingbird recently, this piece made me think of the tree in front of Boo Radley's house where he hid treasures for the children - who were so afraid of this mysterious man. The image is stark and possibly fearful - maybe the unconscious image in Jem's and Scout's minds.

This contemporary monoprint is a one-of-a-kind, original
piece of art.  Ready for framing with or without matting.
