Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Wildlife Painting, Bird Art, 6x8" Robin in Oil, SOLD

When I was a kid growing up in northern Ohio, I always anxiously awaited the return of robins, knowing winter was gone when they came.  I wondered where they spent the winters....now I know....North Carolina!

SOLD
   Well, anyway, that is where this bird spent the winter and where my photographer friend, Ted Fuhrer snapped an image of him.  Thanks for allowing me to use it, Ted.



I really like this in a chunky black frame!

Thanks for reading my blog today.  I hope you see a robin in your tree.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Butterfly,Nature "PIPEVINE SWALLOWTAIL" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





The Pipeline Swallowtail got it's name from being dependent upon the native plant called the Dutchman's Pipevine. This painting was done after I visited a beautiful native preserve in New Hope Pennsylvania called Bowman Hill's Wildflower Preserve. I had been familiar with the pipevine plants of the tropics but didn't realize there was a native one in the Northeast. I was fascinated by this little tiny flower as all the tropical varieties were 4 to 5 times larger. The Pipevine Swallowtail lays its eggs on the leaves and the young caterpillars group together to look like one large scary caterpillar until they are big enough to wander off on their own. The caterpillars create a chrysalis similar to their tropical cousins by leaning off of a branch and securing themselves by a thin filament. The adults appear mostly black on the topside but when the sun hits them just right they shimmer iridescent blues. On the underside they have bright orange/red spots which make them look a bit scary as they flash color as they hover over flowers while feeding.

Botanical Painting,Flower Art "Snuggling Anthurium" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin




This is an oil painting done with a palette knife. I love the way these anthuriums nestle against each other for support and strength. One is reaching for the sunlight while the other is content to rest in the shade. Are you basking in the sun?

Dandelion Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "Blowing in the Breeze", 6x8" Oil

Still painting flowers, and still painting dandelions.  I think the reason I have been so inspired to paint flowers this spring is my month long trip to the mountains.  As an Ohio girl, living in Florida, it has been a long time since I have experienced a "real" spring....and I missed it!

purchase here
110 + shipping
The area was covered in blooming crabapple, pear, and dogwood trees.  Flowers were bursting out everywhere....tulips,azalea,daffodils, lilac, rhododendron and more.  Why then did a choose to paint dandelions....why not!  I think they deserve a little respect.

Caricature of Suzanne, 11x14 Pastel

Due to our closet remodeling, I recently discovered some caricatures I did years ago. This is my daughter Suzanne in her poofy blue dress in the 80s. I was still working for the Air Force then and I did many caricatures of retiring VIPs. I moved on to oil painting, and now, to book illustration. Since I'm too busy to paint much, I'll be posting more of these "oldies" for a while.

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.

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.

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.
