Airport Sketches on iPad

Sketching in public has been my favorite pastime for most of my life. The ability to sketch with on my iPad enables me to access a color palette quickly. These were drawn with my index finger in about 5 minutes.  Keep your eyes open as you may be my next subject...
ENJOY! Eileen

Vernazza Harbor, Cinque Terre Park, Italy


Photos seldom reveal the true splendor of the landscape. When a client commissioned me to paint this Italian Landmark, I made certain to do additional research as I hadn't visited Vernazza Harbor (yet). This colorful harbor in Italy's Cinque Terre Park is, indeed, a joy to behold. It was a pleasure to create this original oil painting. 

     Enjoy, Eileen

HOUSE PORTRAIT, KANSAS CITY


    2015 was a very busy year for custom orders such as this house portrait.
Based upon the recognition that this client enjoys contrasting textures in her beautiful home decor, I knew how to approach this oil portrait of this unique Westwoods home in Kansas City, just outside of the Plaza area. The setting was perfect for displaying the rich textures of the home's surroundings as the porch doors reflected the brightly lighted, overcast autumn sky.


 Enjoy, Eileen
