Four Corners Of Apples And Pears – Featured Art Print

This print has a fall feel and look to it, so I use it to say goodbye to Autumn. It seems that as soon as Thanksgiving is over, we are full speed into winter and Christmas. All of the decorations change into a festive winter look and the fall colors are no longer seen.

It was a year ago this last weekend that mother nature called and our daughter gave birth to our first grandchild (granddaughter). Our son-in-law and daughter had hosted their typical large Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends with our daughter not missing a beat being the perfect hostess, even though she was almost upon her due date. The next day, my wife and I went with them to find their Christmas tree, which is always very tall and large. Again my daughter was feeling great and was helping decorate the tree that evening when all of a sudden she stopped, got very quiet and turned to her husband and said; “Ok…it’s happening, we better get going to the hospital”. The next day our granddaughter was born.

Same type of Thanksgiving this year, they hosted their typical large dinner with family and friends plus one (she was in her element). Did the Christmas Tree shopping with them on Friday (she was in awe). Started decorating it that night (she was mesmerized and helping with ornaments). Then they hosted her 1st Birthday celebration with friends and family the next day (she was having a great time with the other kids). Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday!

Hope your Thanksgiving was great!!

Dainty Red Series – Featured Art Prints Part Two

As a follow-up to last weeks post “Dainty Red Series – Part One” , I wanted to show where that series of prints took me next.

For my “Inspiration Gallery”, I use existing prints I have created and marry them with words of inspiration, motivation, prayers or Bible verses. Actually it truly is the other way around, I usually come up with the verbiage first and then figure out a photograph or print that best highlights the words. I featured the first print during the Easter Season last spring. I was working with this Bible verse and this print come into view as perfect for a very direct simple message.

Love Each Other Red Single Stem art print featured on my blog last April.

 

With this message in mind, I wanted the same simplistic look with just enough spacing to keep the message from getting lost, thus the double stem.

Being on a roll as they say, this verbiage seemed perfect to use the single stem again. All three were created one right after the other as the verses I was working with fit perfectly with these simple prints.

Thoughts?

Dainty Red Series – Featured Art Prints – Part One

The series I am featuring today was originated by a request from one of my clients. They wanted a series of art prints for a room they were working on. The request was for “something” using the color red, floral in subject matter and simplistic in look. I would like to say I immediately envisioned exactly what that would be, but in all candor I played with a number of designs before I arrived at what ultimately became these prints. I settled on small red flower blooms on stems. The series included bouquets and singular stems. I used two different techniques to create these prints. The first technique created an abstract look that took on sharp clean lines defining the blooms and the stems. When that was finished, I then used a very subtle watercolor technique to soften the look just a bit creating the final result.

The watercolor technique creates a softening on the petals and in the background, giving the white background a hint of texture.

This particular print “Dainty Red Double Stem” has become the most popular print in my entire gallery.  For me it complimented the single stem and played into the bouquets that follow.

This print and the next were used on a wall next to each other…

Evening Sunset Along The Walk – Featured Art Print

Evening Sunset Along the Walk is a wall art print I created using an abstract watercolor technique of an evening sunset along the walkway. This technique uses abstract shapes and bold colors to create a clean modern look.

The setting is Carlsbad, California along the coast highway. Carlsbad is located in the northern part of San Diego County and is a popular beach town. In this particular area, there is a sidewalk up on the bluff overlooking the beach and surf of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a great place to take a sunset stroll and enjoy the cool ocean breeze. In this print, the sun is just getting ready to dip into the ocean for the night. The setting is beautiful with not only the sunset, but also the palm trees in the foreground of this print. Thoughts?

The Arbor – Featured Art Print

I wanted to keep with a Spring theme this time of year, so I decided to feature an art print I created a few years back called “The Arbor”. I used an abstract watercolor technique creating this scene. This technique uses abstract shapes and subdued color tones creating a clean modern look. This particular wall art print depicts a sidewalk along the side of a picket fence stretching back to where it ends under an arbor. It depicts a scene from Martha’s Vineyard in the springtime. Martha’s Vineyard is an island off the coast of Massachusetts along the eastern seaboard. It is well-known for traditional New England architecture. Thoughts?
