Limited Edtion Giclee's

I just picked up my first batch of Giclees from the printer today. I will be offering these fine art reproductions for 145.00 unframed or 175.00 framed. They are archival quality and I'm thrilled with how they came out. 16x20 stretched canvas. Delancey Place and Beach Badges. I know these will be very popular with the summer crowd here at the shore. I've already had two requests for Delancey Place.

Oldy But Goody

Here's a picture of a painting I did about twelve years ago when I first started painting in oils. It sold for a good price. Shortly thereafter I put the brush down for a long time. I was directing all my energy into acquiring a flowershop and pursuing my career as a florist. Throughout those 8 or 9 years of barely painting I was never able to shake that feeling I've had all my life...that I am an artist who was born to paint pictures!!! What a relief its been these last 14 months to know that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing!! God and the Universe smile at me once more.

Mothers Day Delays

If you are out there and check in more then once, I must apologize for the neglect...it has been a very busy two weeks with the flower shop...no new artwork, but at least now I have the cash to pay for framing supplies and other much needed art stuff. I have a new still life set up of some lovely mussel shells. Will be onto that tomorrow. I'm having giclees printed up of two paintings...the sandals ( Delancey Place ) and the beach badges ( last post ) They will be in limited editions of 100 each and should sell for about 125.00 to 150.00 depending on the framing. Size will be 16x20 on canvas...I'm really excited by this. Last summer I was asked several times if I had prints of Delancey Place..it will be great to offer them this year!!
I will post new pics tomorrow..even if its some older stuff!!

Work in Progress ;Turn of the Century Beach Badges

My Family Tree stretches back three generations on both my mother and father's side in the cities of Margate and Ventnor. These are beach badges lying on top of a nautical chart showing the part of Absecon Island ( south of Atlantic City ) where Ventnor and Margate lie. I was worried that this looked like some kind of advertisement when I first started the picture...I'm very happy to say that I no longer get that feeling. The component of the painting I most like is how the sand almost appears like clouds floating over the map.
The picture is about 90 percent complete, I just couldn't wait to show it.
