Cat Fine Art Painting, Feline, Garden, "CAT IN THE HYDRANGEAS!" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





I love CATS! I have been a cat lover all my life. My dad brought home a kitten for my mom when she was pregnant with me and I have never lived without at least 3 or 4 or more! Having them in the garden is also a wonderful treat. This colorful, playful painting shares the joy of having a feline friend join you in the garden.

Coral Reef Painting, Key Largo Painting, Daily Painting, Large Oil Painting, 20x24x1.5" Oil


This is the largest of  my coral reef series....the largest so far.  It is highly textured, not with medium, but with paint.

purchase here

I sometimes paint over a failed painting, such as in this case.  Conventional wisdom will advise you to sand down your canvas and start over.  I prefer to let the texture of the failed painting show through.  Sometimes, I also allow pieces of the original art to show.

I originally had an abstract piece on this canvas, but although I liked some parts of the abstract, I  was not happy with the whole piece.  The canvas set in my studio for several years before I attempted to reuse it.  This technique may not be for everyone, but I am the texture queen, so, it appeals to me.



Thanks for viewing my art today.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, "PURPLE DATURA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Purple is my favorite color. When I saw this beautiful double trumpet Datura I knew I would have to have it in my garden! Every year it grows and drops its seeds. Any burst of cold weather in Florida will kill the plant but the wonderful seed heads burst open and the plant rejuvenates itself. It is breath taking and easy to grow!

Abstract Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Triptych Painting

Every now and then, I just have to do an abstract.  Usually painting knives are involved.  This one is no exception.   I wanted to take a square composition and turn it into a rectangle. This us what I came up with.

Purchase Here
135. + shipping

and here is the original square composition.  Which do you prefer?




SOLD 
I have been in North Carolina, in the mountains for the past few weeks.  We are enjoying our time here.

The other day we went to the park and had a picnic lunch, something we never do at home.  There were ducks and geese everywhere.



We had a relaxing and fun time and our sandwiches tasted twice as good as usual.  The crisp fall weather comes and goes.  It is so much fun to be in the mountains this time of the year and I cannot wait for the fall color.   I will share with you when it comes.

When I work on the computer,  I can see chipmonks running back and forth, across the patio.  They are so fast, it is hard to get a photo, but I did manage to catch one stuffing his cheeks with goodies.



Have a great fall day, wherever you are.

I have to admit, I enjoyed painting this scene.  My choices of subject matter are always based on emotion and on this day......the waves filled my need for action.

Thanks for reading my blog today....If I were in Florida, I'd be off to the beach.

Moon Painting, Sky Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x8x1.5"

The moon rises as night falls.

Purchase Here


This is not my usual painting.  This painting was commissioned by a client, who wanted to use it on his CD cover.  He had written and recorded songs and wanted the cover to represent specific lyrics.

I allowed him to dictate the exact scene he requested, which resulted in this painting.  The bad news is, he was not happy with the results.  The good news is, he had paid an non-refundable deposit.

Although my deposit, was not enough to cover the materials and labor I expended, I believe it was a profitable experience.  I learned a lot of dos and don'ts.  He ended up purchasing another painting.

We parted ways, but I believe we were both happy with the outcome.

Island Marketplace, Large Figurative Painting, 52x26x1.5" Original Painting

I consider myself to be a daily painter.  As a daily painter, most of my work is small, many times just 6x8".

 My painting today is a different story at 52" x 26".  Not my largest painting ever...but right up there.



Purchase Here

I enjoy painting large, but it does present other issues.  Framing or no frame?  Such a large piece means a large investment in framing....a frame your client may or may not approve.

Where do I store it?  Not everyone has the luxury of a spacious studio.  I am one of those people.  Since downsizing, I have even less space to store unsold artwork.

The logistics of painting such a large piece, is not to be ignored.  My aging knees protest at the thought of climbing up and down a step stool to paint.

So, this piece may continue to be one of my rare, larger efforts.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Does anyone read my blog?

I  thought I would catch up with the stats on my blog, today, and found some very interesting results!

For instance......the number 1 blog post, after 9 years of posting, is a small abstract, I barely remember.  Posted on August 18, 2013, it has 6 times the amount of views of the number 2 blog post.



The second most popular post, was this little floral.


I do not consider either to be in the top 10 of my most "memorable" works.

Does my blog need a major overhaul?  Or should it die a quiet death?  Is the day of the "blog" over?

Any comments would be appreciated.
