Contemporary Landscape Paintings byAmy Whitehouse



12" x 12" x 1.5" Oil $195

I hope this painting can take the viewer to a serene,
peaceful place.
Layers and layers of oil paint were used
over several months to attain the texture
and depth for this contemporary landscape.

Sometimes it seems that the process ~ which is so enjoyable ~
somehow gets communicated to the viewer in the finished piece.

The 1.5" sides are painted in wrap-around fashion,
so this one is ready to hang, with no frame needed.

Surf Spray, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


16" x 20" x 1.5" Oil, $300

Though I reside in Arizona, it's pretty clear that
my heart resides at the coast.
Either one, it doesn't matter.

I travel to my home state of Florida as often as possible
to get my fix, and to visit family and friends.
I travel to California whenever the opportunity arises.
I would go to Hawaii once a year if I could.

When I do make it to an ocean, I really enjoy the experience:
I immerse myself in the sound of the waves,
the mesmerizing sight of the tides,
the feel of the sand and salt water on my skin.

I never tire of painting ocean scenes,
probably because it helps me "go" there 
at least for a little while.

This painting was completed over several months,
and thus has several layers of oil paint.
There is the most texture at the focal point,
the breaking wave.
Lots of foam and spray make me happy.

If interested in purchasing this piece,
LMK.
The sides are painted in wrap-around style,
so it's ready to hang,
no frame needed.

Cello, Musical Instrument Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


18" x 24" x 2" Acrylic, $700

This contemporary painting of a musical instrument, specifically
a cello,
has painted 2" sides and is ready to hang as is.

I used several layers of paint during the creation of this one,
often thinking of the layers of stain and varnish that a luthier applies
when making his or her instruments.

Thunderstorm, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


Oil, 11" x 14" $500

This latest work was completed two days ago.
It's one of my favorites from this past year.
I used a very large brush to lay in the composition and
large areas of color, then refined it with a medium-sized brush.
The thickest areas of Brilliant White oil paint were applied 
primarily with a palette knife.
The beach and ocean provide endless interpretations, 
expressions, feelings, and art opportunities all-around.

Summer Breeze, Abstract Seascapes by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

The iridescent blues and golds are impossible to capture in a photo,
but the translucent layers of these paints are what make this one interesting
and dynamic.

This painting of an abstract seascape is done on heavy-duty watercolor paper.
