Contemporary Landscape Paintings byAmy Whitehouse

Image
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

Image
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 …

Cello, Musical Instrument Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
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

Image
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.
