Seaside Miniature Art Show Ended

Seaside Art Gallery in Nags Head has an annual miniature art show. Unfortunately for me, none of mine sold. Fortunately for YOU, they are now available 'Direct From Artist' so no gallery commission built into the pricing.

All available at my Daily Paintworks Gallery online

5x7 Acrylic on Sintra Panel
Unframed

Had a good learning experience with this one, in how to make the whites in the back shadows a cool white, and the shadows in the front a warm shadow. 

Artist babble.

Ultimately, it's a painting that makes me happy to look at. 

Available in my Daily Paintworks Gallery
(unless it's already sold)

Baby Shoes on Pink

Baby Shoes on Pink
6x8 Acrylic on Hardboard Panel

I just went crazy over this reference photo, by Nancy Carter on Facebook Photos for Artists. Do they even make baby shoes like this anymore?

Bluebird of Happiness

6x6 Acrylic on Hardboard Panel
Commission

What a thoughtful gift: someone wanted to give their 90+ year old mother-in-law a gift but there wasn't anything she really needed. Then she remembered how much she loves the Eastern Bluebirds that fly around her back yard, and asked if I could paint one for her. Waiting for the frame I ordered to arrive and then will await reports of her surprise and glee.

If you need a special, unique gift for someone, please consider commissioning a painting!
