"Happy New Year Caricature"

"Happy New Year"/Original Caricature Drawing by Eileen
Like so many of us who are too busy to send out mailings at Christmas Time, these wise clients elected to do a Happy New Year Card. It is so interesting to create this for clients and learn about their varied interests.

Enjoy, Eileen

Hayley's Trunk, Finished product

"A Daughter Is A Blessing" /Original Custom Painted Cedar Chest Trunk
  Client commissions come in many forms other than paintings on canvas. The ocassional mural or painted furniture project can be a refreshing break from the routine. Such was the case of this large antique trunk, which was so enjoyable to transform into a special keepsake-and for such a wonderful person.
This was a birthday gift for the client's daughter, Hayley Mac- a gifted dancer
I'll be back to the regular paintings in February. 

  Enjoy, Eileen

 Daily Painting #138/"Caribbean Sunset"/Original oil painting on panel 8"X6"

Over the holidays, we enjoyed a Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Dawn which included, at no extra cost  some extraordinary sunsets and ocean vistas (some things still are free). I think this was a view from the port at Antigua-but I shall have to research it. The view there was equally nice of the port city looking westward. 
Look for more "I wish I were there right now" paintings. If you have any vacation landscape photos you would like painted, feel free to send them to me for consideration. 

  Enjoy, Eileen

Hawaiian Sunset: Little House at Sea

Daily Painting #137/"Hawaiian Sunset: Little House at Sea"/Original oil painting on panel 8"X6"

 Another from the vacation series or the "I wish I were there now" topic. Sunsets provide a colorful, abstract way to experiment with color and value. There is, I find, more freedom to paint abstractly with sunset landscapes.  I used a limited palette along with some wonderful new brushes.
    Enjoy, Eileen
