SUMMER HEART

I was going to dedicate a special blog to this milestone, but today my blog experienced a surge which sent me over 1,000 page views. Thank you everyone who is supporting me by viewing and sharing. I am humbled. And appropriately here is my painting for today.

This painting is SOLD but I'm happy to take a commission for a similar work. Contact me to inquire about prints and Art cards.

I was in a whimsical mood today. Actually I started this painting yesterday, but it wasn't going well so I set it aside and I'm glad I did because this is version far more lighthearted.
The impressionist, pastel-like background moves us from snowy winter to warm summer days bathed in sunlight.

I like the look of pastels but don't like the delicate nature of the finished work, so I developed this multi-layer Acrylic technique. Unfortunately the camera just can't capture the delicate hues of warm light blue, violet, lime, and pink or the lovely bronze highlights in the grass, heart and sun. You will have to take my word for it and enjoy the effect when you make the purchase.
