“CAUTIOUS” is a study I did for a larger piece I intend to do. This piece was triggered by seeing a small photo of my aunt, probably taken back in the early forties. She was in the back of a room filled with prim women perhaps listening to a lecture at the library. All the ladies were wearing sensible shoes and hats. She stood out as being of a different generation, and not quite comfortable.
This piece comes in a trim dark frame.
I wanted to do this painting, “Taking Off,” after seeing a photograph of this Canada Goose on a friend’s Facebook page. I am so often moved by birds and their vulnerability and grace. They’re like dancers of the ballet sort…
This piece hasÂ a grey linen mat with a silver/gold frame and art glass that really showsÂ the colors of the painting.
The painting is 18″h x 24″ w ~ Framed: 31″h x 36″w
“ANITE” Â -An original watercolor of a lovely Haitian woman. This piece won acceptance into the Alabama Watercolor Society Exhibition.
Anite was raising her four children by herself working for a Haitian Cottage Industry, 2nd Story Goods, when her next door neighbor was forced to leave her home, took her baby, and left her 8-year old daughter behind,Â alone. Anite took her in.
I was so moved by her story, I decided to do a painting of Anite, sell the *prints, and give a good portionÂ of the money to Anite.
Framed painting is set in a beautiful wood-like frame, which sets off the color of Anite’s skin. 25″h x 26.5″ w
“Dusk”Â is a fairly large painting of a Heron and his reflection in the setting sun. I loved the gold and the blues of this time of day. This is a watercolor done on Arches cold press paper. It is presently double matted in a beautiful gold frame with museum glass. It is a spectacular piece for the living room!
The painting is 20 1/4″ x 28 1/4″ and is matted and framed with museum glass. The shipping cost will depend on where it’s going and whether or not the frame is included.
