SFA watercolor "Western Window Dressing" 5x7".

Just listed: 5x7" watercolor "Western Window Dressing".

Love this window box flower display. It's in a working mill - historic Butte Creek Mill in Eagle Point, Oregon. Personally, because of the weathered wood, and my treatment of it, I consider this "highly detailed"!

I'll include the frame if you mention this blog. The frame is professionally made. Priced WAY below gallery price.

Pumpkin Shadow

5" x 7"
Pastels on paper. What fascinated me about the photo reference in the WetCanvas "November 2011 Pastel Spotlight" challenge was the gradation of value and hues in the pumpkin's shadow as well as the soft-edged shadow on the white table. I played with hue in the bright part of the table too, using pale tints to make it lay flat and establish the direction of the light, reinforcing the highlights on the pumpkin.

The highlights on the pumpkin are the only place I used a pure white soft stick. That helped draw attention to the main subject and help it pop out.

This painting, done for a challenge, became a big part of an art trade with a master painter who's one of my teachers. It's thanks to one of her classes that I became aware of subtle reflected color in shadows and on objects, as well as the use of various bright hues in context and complements to give richness to flat colors like the bright orange of a pumpkin. She loved it on sight and I felt so thrilled.

Miniature watercolor - old train.

This watercolor is 3.25 x 1.35". I photo'd it with USA 1 cent coin, for size comparison.
"Fading Past 0702" - From what I understand, this train no longer runs through Dillsboro, NC. So it's a glimpse of our fading past.
This painting is on it's way to a miniature exhibition in Pennsylvania.
Seems so funny at times how art traverses the world. From conception in NC, to birth in OR, now to PA, and who knows from there. Probably back to OR, unless sold - which would delight me no end. I never know what is better - win an award, or sell your work. Both are an awesome acknowledgement to an artist.

Original Impressionist Painting Landscape by JC Strong

You can tell by the artwork posted on the blog, small format art comes in a variety of styles, mediums and subject matter. I think the most fortunate aspect is it fits in any decor and can be easily stored and collected. My motto regarding the collection of art is "find it, love it, and buy it." Have a wonderful week...
