Daily Painting, Fiddlehead Fern Painting, Small OIl Painting, 11x14 Oil NFS

This small oil painting came about because of a trip I took to North Carolina.. I used to live in Florida,  where we didn't get a lot of spring flowers, and when I saw this bed of ferns coming to life, I had to paint them.

NFS
I was surprised how quickly they grew, with obvious growth from day to day.
I decided to use a dark background to really highlight the ferns and keep my palette restricted to greens, blues and purples. I have been pleased with the results of this painting, which is a departure from my usual style. Blues are very difficult to photograph accurately and although the background color appears to be a deep blue, the actual color is close to a black,
This piece is available  at the link above as an original, or here as a giclee'  canvas print in the size of your choice.
Thanks for viewing my blog today.  I hope you take time every day,  to smell the roses.

Wildlife Art, Nature, Bird, Botanical "HUMMERBIRD WITH LOBSTER CLAW HELICONIA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


This painting is a combination of watercolor pencils and colored pencils. I used all kinds of experimental techniques during this painting. The background was done by "painting" with baby oil! I was very happy with the way it turned out. It is part of a lesson I teach on my online classes, Experimenting with Colored Pencil.

Horse Portrait, "Big Red" 6x8" Oil, 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.


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?

Nature Art, Insect, Printmaking, Fine Art For Sale “SPINY MUREX” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

The Spiny Murex is an amazing delicate creature. The specimen I worked from was about 5 inches long with crazy sharp spikes. It looks so delicate upon first inspection but this little critter protects itself really well from predators. It was a challenge to draw. This offering is for a Solar Etching which is hand-pulled in black archival ink.

Abstract Environmental Art "Wind Rose II" by International Contemporary Artist Arrachme



“Wind Rose 2” was created for an exhibition where artworks were created for The Fortress of Sagres in Portugal, July 2017. The original “Wind Rose” is made of earth and sand. It was created by Prince Henry to navigate the Mediterranean in the fifteenth century and exists today with only requiring one restoration following a hurricane.

Arrachme’s abstract interpretation of this place was intuitively commenced before the artist was invited to the project. The collaberation between the location and the canvas exisited across a great distance which was the perspective of the exhibition.

The original is mixed media using many layers of different viscosity of paint during the process that includes appling papers and gold leaf. There is also a minimum of six thin pours. Finally, after completing the drying, a contrast of matt to gloss varnish finishes are applyed to bring out varying degrees of depth within the layers.

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Seascape Painting, 12x12x1.5" Oil

I am still in a seascape frame of mind.

Purchase here
295.00 +shipping
This is worked with a palette knife.  I enjoy lots of texture, so I left it on this piece.  Maybe it is more of a skyscape?   Maybe it is more abstract or impressionistic?  Whatever it is, it reflects my mood at the time, which I think, is the point of painting.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Wildlife Art, Bird, Heron, Nature, Printmaking “Green Heron” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

The Green Heron is one of my favorite birds to spot on the river while I am kayaking here in Florida. They often can be spotted along the shore or wading in the water fishing. They are much smaller than their relatives the Great Blue Heron but I think they are much prettier. This is a black & white hand-pulled solar etching. I have also done one that is hand colored after the printmaking process. You can message me if you are interested in a color rendition.

Contemporary Abstract Expressionist Painting “Looking Up” by Contemporary International Abstract Artist Arrachme



Created for South Korean Exhibition Visible Poetry Connecting the World founder Yoo   Choong Yeul, event by Hanam City.
Looking up is an abstract contemporary representation of life after nuclear interruption  of the environment and how nature begins to repair and replace itself with positive growth. The circles are artists that represent the  love that push gently against the cold metal edges of the power plant making it softer with every painting and exhibition that is created to bring awareness.

Wildlife Art, Bird, Raven,Printmaking “Celtic Raven” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


The Raven is mysterious bird in many folklores and legends. In this Solar Etching I decided to put a Celtic Raven Mandala in the background. the legend of King Arthur Arthur is associated with ravens. In area of Cornwall, which is steeped in Celtic lore, it was believed that Arthur didn't really die, but was magically transformed into this bird. Interesting for me as I had a cat named King Arthur who passed away and currently have a black cat named "Raven'!

STILL HERE, 6X8, OIL SOLD


The equation of animal and vegetable life is too complicated a problem for human intelligence to solve, and we can never know how wide a circle of disturbance we produce in the harmonies of nature when we throw the smallest pebble into the ocean of organic life. 


George Perkins Marsh
1801 - 1882




American conservationist was the first to reveal the menace of environmental misuse, to explain its causes, and to prescribe reforms. 








130 years later, we are still struggling with the same problems.......and yet, the wild areas are "Still here".

Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, "Gray Squirrel" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Have you ever tried to photograph wildlife?  I have, and consider it an exercise in frustration.  Many blurred images later, my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer, offered me the use of his images.  Thanks so much, Ted.

SOLD
This little guy looks very inquisitive and ready to bolt at the least movement.

  I enjoyed experimenting with painting his fur and directing the viewer's eye.  The animal is much the same color as the background in this scene.

 I put it in one of my black frames.  They seem to work perfectly for just about any painting.

Happy day to you!
