Surf's Up, Contemporary Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 10" Oil, $175

One of my favorite ocean scenes because of the simplicity
and economy of brushstrokes; also, the feel of the wind
skipping up the water.

Ocean Path, Contemporary Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


10" x 10" x 1.5" Oil, $150

This contemporary beach and ocean scene was
painted in several layers over a few weeks
with R & F Oil Pure Pigment sticks.
There is a certain glow from being layered.
I hope this image evokes something good for the viewer.
Art should lift us up.  And inspire.

On another note, many have suggested that I  raise
my prices.  I keep them low so that anyone who wants 
original art is able to have it.  I know how original art
enriches one's days and weeks and years.

Country Road 2, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


8" x 10" Acrylic, $195

This little painting was inspired by James Taylor's "Country Road,"
perhaps my very favorite of his songs.
(I'm a huge fan, I'm not afraid to admit it.)

One of my after-school painting classes was doing landscapes with
palette knives last week, and I wanted to try one, too.
Though the entire painting wasn't painted with a palette knife, 
most of it was, as that was the assignment.

BTW my favorite rendition is from James Taylor's LIVE album.
That two-disc album is somehow not worn out;
must've listened to it hundreds of times.

Cabo Palms, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

This is from a memory of a beautiful storm in Cabo years ago.

a lavender hue.
Ohhhh.....Mexico...
