Abstract Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Textured Art, "Rainy Day in Albany" 10x10x3" Contemporary Art SOLD

This painting was a happy accident!  Well, maybe not the painting, but the total effect.

I purchased some art supplies online and was very surprised (and maybe dismayed) to see that two sizes of canvases we actually 3" deep!  How did that happen?  I thought about returning them, but after calculating the return shipping, I realized that would not work.

SOLD
 So what to do?  They seemed so in-your-face, not the right canvas for a delicate rose.
I decided abstract was the way to go.  I wanted lots of texture, but still need contract in the texture.


Yes, it can go on the wall.....but why?  I love it sitting on a shelf, pretending to be a sculpture.

And guess what!  A manufacturer loved it too, so it is licensed and may be appearing in a department store near you soon, pretending to be a pillow or maybe a duvet.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature,Butterfly "LOBSTER CLAW HELICONIA WITH MOSAIC BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



The heliconia in this painting is referred to as a "Lobster Claw" because of it shape, size and color. The butterfly in the painting is commonly know as the Mosaic Butterfly. The latin name is Colubra dirce. I have encountered both of these species on my many trips to Central America. I really enjoyed putting them together as I like the brilliant color of the flower with the muted, earth tones of the highly patterned underside of the butterfly.

It is always interesting and educational to review the painting journey that you have been on.  I like to line up older paintings, chronologically, which helps me to see the improvements I have made and the ones I would like to make in the future.  Always an interesting exercise.

Thistle Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, SOLD

This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.

SOLD

 I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.



This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!




Thank you for viewing my art today.

When I started painting, I did lots of still life.  These two have encouraged me, to get back in the still life mode, doing set-ups in my studio.

California Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Oil Landscape

My good friend, and excellent photographer, Ted Fuhrer,  has done it again, supplying me with so many inspiring images to paint from.  On of the many places he has lived was the coastal region of California.



Purchase here
225 + shipping 
Ted, I hope you think I did justice to your work.

I am always in awe of the western coast of our country.  Living on the east coast is great, and I am so blessed to be here. We have gentle surf, warm water, island music.... But to me, the west coast is larger than life.  So rugged, so big, a constant test to exist there. The boulders are larger than houses, the mountain streams are full of rushing rapids. The pioneer spirit is still alive there.  I cannpt wait to visit again.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature, Insect "IO MOTH" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

                         
 






The Io Moth, Automeris io, is sexually dimorphic, males having bright yellow forewings, body, and legs, while females have reddish brown forewings, body, and legs. The males also have much bigger plumose (feathery) antennae than the females. Both have one big black to bluisheyespot with some white in the center, on each hindwing, a defense mechanism meant to frighten off potential predators. The caterpillars turn bright green and have many spines that cause a lot of pain if touched. The spines have a poison that is released with the slightest touch. The Io Moth is depicted here on the Eastern Redbud, Forest Pansy, Cercis canadensis.

Abstract Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 11x14" Original Oil Painting

It is so hard to believe, that we have been living in the mountains of North Carolina for 9 months.  I marvel at the beautiful mountain scenes outside my door.  Asheville has sooo much to offer!

But there is something it cannot offer...the beach, the sea, the salt air.  

Maybe that is why I was moved to do this abstract.

Purchase here

I had fun playing with the direction of my knife strokes.  Still a minimalist painting, but with a little added interest.   Hmmmm, I see a mountain abstract in my future!


The perfect wall decor for a beach house, or for someone dreaming of a beach house.

We will be heading back to the beach soon, and I will have sand on my toes, once again.

Have a blessed day!

Fall Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, One Last Autumn Painting, 6x8" Oil on Canvas

I know, I know!  By now, you are sick and tired of hearing me go on about fall in the mountains!  I promise, this is my last little autumn painting.


Purchase Here

I am trying to bring additional color, and different color into my art.  This time of year is perfect!  I tend to be a cool hue kind of girl, so inspiration is easy with fall colors everywhere.


Hmmmm!  I think I could become fond of the "other" side of the color wheel.  In any case, change is always a good thing.

Feeling Orange,

Today I am posting another new autumn painting.  I am so inspired by the beautiful landscapes beyond my windows.

Purchase Here


There is nothing better than a bright, sunny, fall day, with those gorgeous leaves, highlighted against a bright blue sky.



This is a cute little house, down the road, in Waynesville NC.  A little story book house!

Time for pumpkins, burning leaves, and roasting marshmallows.  The local orchards are full of apples and cider.  YUM!  If I could just find a hay ride, life would be complete.

A scene that is found everywhere, in my new state, North Carolina.  Maybe not everywhere, but, everywhere around here in the Asheville area.

Illustrative Wildlife Fine Art, Sea Life,Mixed Media Art “SALLY LIGHTFOOT CRAB” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



The Sally Lightfoot Crab is an amazing array of dazzling color! I saw these crabs while visiting the Galapagos Islands. At different stages of their lifecycle, they molt their outer shells and emerge with a different color combination. As juveniles they are a darker indigo blue and as they age they become more brilliant and multicolored. I painted this on Fabriano Artistico Soft Press 300lb watercolor paper. I first used watercolor to establish the basic colors. The rocks were done with a granulating watercolor called hematite. I finished the painting using colored pencil and pastels for do the details on top of the watercolor.
