Coral Reef Painting, Textured Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x8x1.5" Oil

This is another in my "Coral Reef" series, that were inspired by a trip to Key Largo.


Purchase here

I was also inspired by artist Lynn Boggess, an artist, whose work I admire.  Lynn works on huge canvases, which he carries into the mountains, and paints plein aire.  He paints with paint trowels instead of a brush and brings incredible texture to his works.

I worked on a small canvas, with a palette knife.  

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Butterfly,Nature "POLYDAMAS BUTTERFLY & ARISTOLOCHIA GIGANTEA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





Art by Mindy Lighthipe,Swallowtail butterflies are in the United States as well as in Central America. The Polydamus Butterfly is in the Swallowtail family and is found in Florida as well as in Central America. It feeds on the very peculiar plant family of pipevines. The plant depicted here has a flower the size of a baseball glove, thus the latin name- gigantea. The flowers act as a trap for unsuspecting small insects which fly into the "mouth" of the flower, travel down the throat of the flower and then are trapped at the bottom of the chamber. Here they are dissolved into the plants membrane. Once the flower is dead, a huge seed pod is formed which splits open spraying the seeds to the ground. Once the seeds germinate more shoots will climb in a profusion of  intermingling vines. The female Polydamus lays her eggs on this plant and the caterpillars  eat the leaves as well as the flowers. The caterpillar pupates and uses a thin filament or support to attach itself to a stem. The chrysalis looks like a twig or a rock climber attaching himself to the side of a cliff!

These little people were gifts from my son when he was stationed in Okinawa. They are two of my favorite things, and so cleverly done. I really enjoyed painting them.

Tropical Sunset Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x10" Oil on Panel

Inspired by a sunset at Mile 0, Key West.

It is hard, not to be impressed, by a beautiful sunset over water!

Technically, this is a Florida sunset, but I thought it had an island vibe, so I named it "Aloha".

Thanks for viewing!

Beach Sunset, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Original Oil Painting

One of my favorite places to be, when the sun goes down, is on the beach.  Of course, on the east coast of Florida, there is no show, but a short 3 hours away, on the west coast......waaaazaa!!

Purchase here

It is such a stunning sight and there is always a crowd of people, gathered to say good bye to the day.



This little painting brings back those spiritual moments, as I remember the peace and quiet that we all felt as the sun fell behind the sea.  If only we could capture that feeling and keep it with us always.

Have a peaceful and lovely day....and thanks for visiting today.

Abstract Landscape Painting, Textured Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 10x10x3" Oil

I found some square 3 inch deep canvases in my studio, and decided to play around with one.


purchase here


I tried several approaches, but nothing was working for me.  So, I just started playing with paint and my palette knife.  I was envisioning  a sunset over the landscape, choosing colors that "felt" right for me.



You can see how deep the canvas is in this pic.  I actually love these big clunky canvases on shelves rather than walls, and I like the feel of the rough clunky paint.

All in all, it was a fun painting day.

Hometown Train Station, Landscape Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14 Landscape

I have felt the need to paint buildings, or other landmarks that man has left on our planet.....maybe even "man" himself.  Most of my paintings, landscapes, seascapes, floral, are organic shapes and I wanted to try some straight lines!


I found this image of the old train station in my hometown of Wauseon, Ohio.  It looks exactly as I remembered it.

Naturally, I tightened up.....really tightened up!  This is not what I wanted!  I want a loose building, one that looks comfortable on the canvas.  Now I am beginning to remember why I don't paint buildings.

I am hoping this is just a matter of practice, practice, practice.  My plan is to try again and again.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Botanical Fine Art Painting "RED PEONIES, ANTS AND A RED ADMIRAL" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




I love Peonies! Years ago I planted about a dozen or so of them in the fall in my garden. When spring came the following year I couldn't wait for the flowers to bloom. To my dismay I saw all the beautiful flower buds covered in ants. Drat! I thought they were going to eat the flowers and I would end up with just stems. I did some research to find out what kind of insecticide I should spray on the plants only to find that the flowers would not bloom without the ants! Really? Yes, really! The flower buds are covered in a sticky sugar which attracts the ants to the flower. The ants collect and "clean" off the sticky substance allowing the flower to bloom in all its' glory.  How cool is that! This is how this painting was born. The Ants go Marching!!!!

Dog Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Golden Retriever Portrait, 8x8x1.5" Oil SOLD

Now, that the hectic holidays are over, it feels good to get back to my daily rountine.

I love the feel of a brand new year, that same feeling I get when I put on a new dress for the first time.  It stretches ahead of me with endless possibilities.  My goals this year are to concentrate more on quality and less on quanity, so posts may be fewer and farther apart.

What are your art goals for the beautiful year ahead?

Thanks you for reading my blog today.
