"DRAGONFLY IN GREEN AND BLUE" ORIGINAL OIL ON TEXTURED 4X4" PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Dragonfly in Blue and Green"
4x4" oil on textured panel

This light and airy little dragonfly is a symbol for change and light; a perfect combination for any decor! The background is a soft tanish with blue highlights. You can purchase her as is and sit her on a small easel, or you can frame her in your favorite 4" x 4" frame (keep in mind the frames take 1/2" on all sides), or for just .50 I can mount her on a black or off white 5"x5" backer board so you can frame her in your favorite 5"x5" frame with all the sides showing! The two examples shown are not for sale, but you can find the black frame at Michaels, and the off white frame on ETSY at Rustic and Refined Design! "Dragonfly in Green and Blue" will be ready to ship on or about November 1, 2014 when she is totally dry! 

I also just finished a fun piece of furniture that went to my gallery in Westminster; the Aar River Gallery.  I'm thinking I'm hooked on dragonflies of late! 
Painted in a beautiful light shade of sage (I consider a neutral), with some paper and palm leaves to boot, this fun piece was a joy to paint!

HAPPY CREATING!

"BUTTERFLY IN BLUE" ORIGINAL OIL ON TEXTURED 5X7 PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Butterfly in Blue"
7x5" oil on textured panel; framed
$80
Available at Luna's Mandala

I've had some specific requests lately...dragonflies, and hummingbirds.  I THOUGHT Luna had requested a butterfly, but I heard her wrong! HA!...but, she graciously added this little one into the gallery anyway.  My goal with this was to keep it simple...no accurate depictions for me on butterflies...close up they are kinda scary! LOL
It has been a really different type of life here at the Galloway's of late.  My most wonderful son has been getting settled in and a JOB...he's been busy too.  As wonderful as it is, it takes a bit to readjust lives and patterns of living, and that is exactly what I have been doing.  My work is so very important to me...so I have been painting and creating in my spare moments.  

One of my projects was to up-cycle jeans for Luna's Mandala in Conifer.  Yep folks, they are back...how many of you remember these!!




AND...of course, more bitty canvas baskets for Luna's Mandala.  She requested some very specific ones for the lovely tourists who may find there way to the gallery!

And NOW, some very sweet and happy news!  My sweet daughter and son in law and Paxton are going to have a sweet LITTLE GIRL about March 8!  We just found out...but keep it a secret as she hasn't announced it's a girl yet on facebook!!  FUN DOINS!
BUSY DAYS...BUT HAPPY DAYS...
HAPPY CREATING!

"DRAGONFLY II" ORIGINAL OIL MINI AT LUNA'S MANDALA © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Dragonfly II"
oil on textured 4"x4" panel (1/2" thick)
$45

I enjoyed painting the first dragonfly for Luna's Mandala that I just had to do another one.  I try to keep my work as affordable as I can.  This was a request from Luna herself, so it can only be found at the gallery up in Conifer Colorado!  This little girl sits on her own easel!  However, there are slots on the back for hanging if that is the choice! 
HAPPY CREATING!

"DRAGONFLY" ORIGINAL OIL ON TEXTURED PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Dragonfly"
7"x5" oil on textured panel; Framed as shown
$85

It's been busy days here at the studio and home...My wonderful son has settled in somewhat; however is suffering from altitude sickness at the moment.  I FINALLY had a moment to sit down at my easel and paint something requested of me for my gallery at Luna's Mandala here in Conifer.  She will sit at the gallery for a couple of weeks and then I will put her in ETSY.  Anyone who is interested in purchase before then can contact me at art4life44@hotmail.com.

As always I painted "Dragonfly" on a slightly textured panel in oil.  There is a little charcoal peeking through here and there...FUN DOINS!

I've put her in this recycled, handmade frame.  I'd say the colors show most accurately in this frame...there is a tiny hint of the green in the background with a splash of blue at bottom.

HAPPY CREATING!!

CANVAS BASKETS GALORE!

I've just fallen in love with making my canvas baskets!  I don't make much money on each one, so I've decided they are a labor of love!  And FUN!  Love Life is my newest creation with my own hand made tree of life stamp...You will notice on some that I have begun to add stones...this one has a garnet.
 "Treasure" is another larger canvas basket...5" wide, 3" deep and about 3" tall.


I call these small ones my "bitty" baskets as they are just 3 1/2" wide, 2" deep and 2" tall...but hold all sorts of those small kitchy things we always have laying around...paper clips, make-up, just about any small thing...and they are great for gifts...put some small items in the bag that has the sentiment you want to convey!  They sell almost as fast as I can make them at my gallery in Conifer.."Luna's Mandala"


I also make pencil or glasses holders that have a bit of pea gravel in the bottom to keep them grounded...




I can even make them to order if you want...Most of what you see here is found only at Luna's Mandala, but I will make to order...keep in mind the design varies, and colors...but take these two for example...they were ordered...The way that happened is the purchaser asked for pink and birds with the word Pearl...and the other, cats...and the color was specified.  These cats are my own stamps I made...so, the possibilities are wide!  IF you are interested in this just contact me with some general guidelines and we will see what we can do! FUN.  Just contact me at art4life44@hotmail.com and we'll work it out!  The bitties are $8 with a stone, $7 without.  The larger like live life are $15 without and $16 with a stone they measure about 5" wide by 3" deep and about 2 3/4" high, and the pencil holders are $16.60 without and $17.50 with a stone and are about 4" high and 3 1/2" wide and about 2" deep...Keep in mind that each one is unique and has it's own personality!
Lots going on in the Galloway household lately which has slowed me down a little on artwork...JUST TEMPORARILY though!  The biggest news is my most wonderful son is moving to Colorado for a time and we couldn't be happier!  SO, lots to do to help him transition to the new life!  HOWEVER, I have several of my doors in line to be painted...be watching for aspen, more poppies...and whatever else my mind comes up with...stay tuned!! 

I am also working on a mandala painting class for up here in the mountains...lots o folks are interested in exploring their lives and this is a fun visual to take home!  STAY TUNED for more on this...

I have to share a fun face time moment I had the other day with my beautiful daughter and sweetheart grandson Paxton!  He had just woken up from his nap and wanted to talk to Nana (that's ME).  The first thing he said when he saw me was "I want to come in there with you"!  WOW...a heart melter for sure!  Later we read the recorded books I send...together...and at one point he wanted me to "sit" by him, so he took the ipad and put it next to him and put his arm around me!  WOWIE ZOWIE...I was in heaven...
Life is precious and so awesome!

HAPPY CREATING!

I'm burying this next photo at the bottom of this post because it is something I did for my daughter who told me she likes penguins.  It was fun and sweet...just a little cutie pie...not my photo, so wouldn't sell it unless I got permission...but, for her...no biggie!

"FADE TO PINK" ORIGINAL 4X4" OIL ON 1/2" DEEP PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Fade to Pink"
4x4" oil on textured panel
$35
A wonderful ode to pink and all it's qualities. This happy little painting is a burst of color and composition for that spot that needs a little punch! "Fade to Pink" is painted in oil on a slightly textured 4"x4" panel. The 1/2" depth allows this painting to sit on its own or on a small easel. The easel I chose for this painting is natural in color, but if you want it stained brown please mention that in your notes when you order. Slots on back will also allow for hanging! "Fade to Pink" will be ready to ship on September 8, 2014 when it is dry. 
 this is shown with my easel choice...natural...
but it can be stained also! :)

This has been fun, playing with abstract...it is a great way to feed my creative soul.  Doing these actually helps me in my mixed media work!  I'd highly suggest you try to dabble...it will inspire!!...but now I'm hungry for more of my fun animals...
FUN DOINS!
HAPPY CREATING!
