Pears and Petals

April 4th, 2012

Pears and Petals

With the arrival of spring weather and the forsythias bursting into bloom, "Pears and Petals" is being released to Fine Art America. This bright and sunny picture was painted using a new (to me) technique. A thin line of resist outlines and provides texture within the painting. This would make a wonderful piece of artwork for your walls. Thank you to everyone for your continued encouragement and support!

Its Raining Garlic

Its Raining Garlic

"It's Raining Garlic" is a new watercolor just released on my Fine Art web site. This colorful watercolor was recently on display at the Old Historic Courthouse Theater in Concord, NC, and at Mint Hill Arts Gallery in Mint Hill, NC.

It was fun painting the background, then removing the friskit to paint the garlic, using glazing and wet-on-wet technique. A dear painting friend, Mary, came up with the title!

Prints off this newest watercolor may be ordered from www.Sandy-Collier.artistwebsites.com.

Saturday Afternoon

One of my new paintings, "Saturday Afternoon", is being released on Fine Art America. It has recently been in three shows, including the "Water" show at Mint Hill Arts, in Mint Hill, NC. Inspiration for this picture has been several sailing trips on bright, beautiful days, where the sailboats are out in the water in numbers..... Viewers tell me this is a very peaceful work which they study closely, to find the details.
