Apparition and Special Visitors

 

Apparition

This lime green man is wondering if he is the Apparition or the if the creature from a greek vase is. This was so much fun to paint. I love using strong colors and was able to complement those wild pink flowers and glowing  poppies with a dramatic blue background. The tree on the right is gold paint and glows. The colors in the image below are a tad lighter than the actual picture but close.

This painting is 7″ by 5″ and ready to hang. It is framed in a black and wood frame. You can get a better idea of it from the picture below. It is one of my favorites. It is for sale for $195.IMG_5127

The wonderful thing about blogging is you meet so many fabulous artists either virtually or on the rare occasion in person. My most recent open studios started with a delightful surprise. Fellow artist and blogger, Fay Terry stopped in to visit on her way to a workshop in Maine. She is a wonderfully talented woman and totally delightful. I am so thrilled she stopped by and  hope that in my travels to North Carolina to visit my sister that I have a chance to meet her and visit her studio.

And I am thrilled to report Bitsy is prancing and dancing when we let her out of her cage. She still is not allowed to jump so I have her on a leash and harness. She is not so keen on that. But she loves sitting on the bed and getting petted! And only 5 more days to sign up for my blog to be entered in a drawing to win a gicleé. It has been a quiet month so the odds are really good this time around. More exciting news next post…

    As always, your colors are fresh and vibrant, Susan. It’s good to see the photo of you and Fay!

  3. WOW, this is a bright painting! I love the colbalt blues and bright reds……I have experimented with metallic paints but w mixed results. Glad your gold is working out.
    Super to meet fellow artists! I met one of my favorite artists, Alicia Wishart (from Canada) literally by coincidence at a local festival.

    And awesome to hear Bitsy is doing much better….she looks happier!
