Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting, Roses,"Coastal Sea Roses"Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Coastal Sea Roses is a palette knife done with oils. Imagine the pop of bright pink, lacey sea roses. Their fragrance and delicate look are so captivating. You just have to stop and smell the roses. Impatiens spilling out of an old wooden window box, eating chowder and clam cakes and can you smell that sea air?

Dog Painting, Pet Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10" Oil on Canvas



My neighbor Ellen, commissioned me to do paintings of her two fur babies.


I was happy when she loved this painting.  She felt I captured his spirit well.

In some ways, it is more difficult to paint a pet, because the owner is so hyper aware of every little aspect of their beloved animal.  This little guy had hair that stood up straight on top of his head, and super long eyelashes.  The owner looked for that in the portrait, as well as all the color variations of the animal.  She pronounced it a good likeness.....whew!

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth


Vanishing Point
10" x 16" x 1.5"
Acrylic on canvas

I like to stretch my own canvases and usually end up with many left over pieces of canvas that are too small for my larger stretcher bars but too big to throw away.  Thanks to my handy husband, we have made some custom size bars for these smaller pieces.  They are the perfect size for a pop of color in a small space!

Vanishing Point  measures 10" x 16".  This textural, abstract acrylic painting is on a gallery-wrapped canvas with the sides painted in a shimmery gray/black micaceous iron oxide.  The painting is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back. It is wired and ready to hang. A light coat of clear acrylic varnish has been applied to seal and protect the beauty of this painting.

Pear and Plum Still Life, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas panel, sold

Have not done a still life, or a palette knife painting for a while, so this one was in my comfort zone.

SOLD

I naturally tend to lean towards cool colors, so I had fun working all my favorite color relationships.



This scene is a repaint, from years ago.  I couldn't find the original photograph, but I did have a photo of the first painting, so I used that as a guide.  The first painting was done with a brush, which is why I decided to mix it up a little, by using a palette knife this time around.

Hope you enjoy it!

A little seascape painting and memories of a wonderful trip, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Palette Knife Painting

Fresh off a trip to the Florida Keys, I returned inspired by the gorgeous water colors. I started a new series I call "Coral Reef". This is the first piece of the series entitled "Wakes".
purchase here

 I was captivated with the colors of the sea as we rode out to the coral reef.



The boat wake followed us out seven miles from shore.




It was my first trip to the keys in many years, and a had forgotten the lure of the tropical beauty.

Thanks for viewing my blog today

"Historic Fishing Village" Original Historic Door, New England Fishing Village by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

I love to look at the lovely homes in the historic fishing villages of New England. These beautiful old homes carry such a story of life in an old seaport town. This one was particularly special. It had beautiful perennial gardens everywhere. The gardens and the stone walkways were placed with great thought and nurtured lovingly. This house overlooked the water and the boats at dock in the harbor. I'm always drawn back to this place and I imagine the family who lived here waiting for their fisherman to return home.

Horse Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Horse Portrait, SOLD

I have been trying to expand my horizons by painting new subject matter.  This is my second horse painting.


SOLD
I have to say I did enjoy the challenge.  He looked so spirited and I got excited about his red coat against a green background.

Add caption

It's always fun to stretch a little, try something new.  I would like to do more of these, but I think my biggest challenge will be getting interesting reference images to work from. We have plenty of horses in our neighborhood, but they usually run to the other end of the pasture when they see me approach with my trusty camera.

Do you have any special techniques for getting images of animals?

Printmaking on Paper, Original Art "TORTOISE BEETLE 1" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


This Tortoise Beetle is the second in the set of Artists' Proofs I have done as I experiment with Solar Etchings. Solar printing  allows me to do my drawings on paper, create a negative scan of the drawing and then burn the images onto a plate that is exposed to light. The result is similar to traditional intaglio printing but I don't have to work in reverse or worry about making a mistake on the copper plate. Once the plate is exposed to light, the image is burned into the plate. I then ink the plate, wipe it clean and the ink that remains is left in the "burned" recessed areas of the plate. The plate is hand pulled through a traditional press and the remaining ink creates the image.

Original Florida Coastal Landscape Painting "Serenity on Sanibel" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin


This is an oil painting. Approaching the Sanibel Lighthouse from this direction on the pathway, I relished in the colorful, late afternoon skies. What a glorious site and an interesting vantage point of the lighthouse with the dappled sunlight peeking through the trees and onto the shell path.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Today I received an email from a collector who purchased one of my small paintings through Artful Home, one of the online gallery sites that sells much of my work.  I am so very touched that she reached out to me to let me know how much the painting means to her.

This is the email I received:

Hi. How are you? I just purchased your painting "Calm Before The Storm" and I asked that Artful Home relay my message but I want to make sure that you got it. I love it so very much. I am terminally ill and I have chosen your painting for a place of honor... that I will see each and every hour that I am still here. It is so very wonderful and you are so very talented. I wanted you to know how much your work is appreciated. Take Care.

As artists, we frequently work alone and are not always aware of how the product of our hearts and hands will affect someone else.  From now on, I will make a conscious effort to be very mindful of that fact.  Our work is much more than paint and canvas...it conveys a spiritual message that touches hearts.  How amazing is that?!!

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with a talent that blesses others.
