Scottsdale Morning, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
12" x 16" Oil, $550
Palm trees clearly hold my fascination, and  I do not tire of painting them. The mornings are finally cool and bright, and the plethora of palms we have in this are look so pretty against the sky. A walk with the dogs inspires me to  try one more rendering.

Pumpkin, Contemporary Still Life Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
8" x 10" Oil, $150
The pumpkins are lovely and promise that autumn is here. So even though the air conditioning is chugging away, and the temperatures still flirt around 100, I'm getting in the mood for fall and trust its imminent arrival. So I'm painting pumpkins from Trader Joe's.

Rough Waters, Monoprints in Acrylic by Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 6" Monoprint, $125
This past week I have been teaching my sixth grade students monoprinting. They are loving this process, and thrilled with their results.
So in my free time this week, I've been working on monoprints, too. Fields, mountains, lakes, and of course, the ocean. This is my favorite one from this week's output.

Birch Trees, Contemporary Monoprint by Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 6" Monoprint, $65
We've had more of a winter than usual here in Arizona this year. Just a little over an hour north of Phoenix, the birch trees are bare, the air is still, and one can often spot a snowman left behind to entertain passers-by.
This simple depiction of the birch trees evokes the feel of winter in Northern Arizona and elsewhere, I hope.

Calm after the Storm, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Image
6" x 8" Acrylic, $125
Once again, it has been a long time since I've posted. My new job as Art teacher to Kindergarteners, and First, Second, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Graders, has filled my weeks. It is gratifying work if demanding. This past week, as one little second grade boy was working, he said, "This is the best art project ever!" That did my heart good.
This morning I'm trying to make sense of the clutter in my studio. I am reposting this little painting as it's one of my favorites, and it reminds me to do my own Art for the good of me.
