"SUNFLOWER IN SEASON" OIL ON MIXED MEDIA CRADLED PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE FINE ART


What can I say, it was just TIME to do another sunflower.  The days have been warm of late, and that always makes me think of sunflowers, so, it had to be done!  This bloom is on an 18"x18" cradled MDF panel with stained sides to compliment.  I'm thinking acorns and cherries coming soon!

NEW BEGINNINGS AND A LITTLE FINISHING TO BOOT!

With summer coming it seemed a great time to paint a sunflower.  I haven't painted one in awhile, so this will be fun...I want to work on my sunflower strokes...make them a little more loose.  It will be interesting to see if I accomplish it.  This is an 18"x18" MDF cradled panel, so one of my favorite supports.

My youngest niece graduated recently, so it was time to paint something for her...this is her favorite horse; Chance.  And, aunt Saundra had to put him in one of my signature frames. 
Her sister is just about finished with college, so of course I have to paint her favorite pup...Bernie Mac (Bernard).  I've actually painted him several times...but just look at that face!  Gotta do him again!
Busy times in the studio...I'm still adding mountain summits from time to time, but I still want to work on other things...

HAPPY CREATING!

COLOR AND PHRASE TO BOOST CREATIVE THOUGHT © SAUNDRA LANE FINE ART

Just Like the Aspen Tree...
15"x17"
mixed media under glass
Available at Luna's Mandala
$80
There are times when I just want to PLAY with color and a phrase.  I found the phrase attached to this illustration in a blog written by Gail Lynne Goodwin.  If you did not know, aspen trees share common roots...when one is in trouble, the strength comes from those around...
I actually played with ink and sharpie on this fun little stand of aspen.  

Dreams are like Acorns...
17"x15"
acrylic and ink
Available at Luna's Mandala
$80
Continuing with my illustration type color and phrase I painted these fun acorns with acrylic; stamping the background a bit with design and adding the canvas and words to complete my vision of this fun little piece.  Also under glass with the black wood frame.
The phrase comes from the acornstash.com.  It reminds us just how important our dreams are!
I encourage you to veer from your regular way of working from time to time.  It is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.  From these fun projects I did for Luna's Mandala in Conifer were a great jumping off point for paintings and projects to come!  I've long loved adding words in the body of my work to add to the impact it may have on the viewer...so I now have new ideas for other things!  Let yourself stretch and play from time to time!  You'll be glad you did!

IF you are interested in either of these pieces but don't live near by, just contact me and if they are still available I'll be glad to get it to you!

HAPPY CREATING!

"MT. MORAN" AND "GRAND TETONS" BOTH ORIGINAL OILS OF SUMMITS IN THE GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK © SAUNDRA LANE FINE ART

"Grand Tetons" are a range of mountains found in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.  This range consists of a few mountain peaks, but as this is a summit project I zoomed in on the two most prominent peaks. The highest peak/summit is Grand Teton which rises to about 13,770 feet.  To the left is Middle Teton, rising to 12,804 feet. The space between these two is called the lower saddle and off to the right you can see a bit of Mount Owen at 12,928 feet.  "Grand Tetons" is oil on 6"x6" panel and comes ready to frame (the suggestion frame you see here is not included, but shows you how fun they look framed.  This is a floater frame you can find at pictureframes.com) or sit on an easel.

"Grand Tetons" was actually the summit that my friend Jackie Johnson requested to see for my mountain summits project...HOWEVER, life has been so busy, I latched on to a different peak when I was doing my research and just painted it instead, NOT EVEN NOTICING it wasn't the Tetons like we know them!  WOW!  I decided to add it to the collection anyway because it was named after an artist and I kind of was attracted to it in the first place, so HERE is "Mt. Moran"
"Mt. Moran" is a mountain in Grand Teton National Park of western Wyoming that rises some 12,605 feet.  This mountain was named for Thomas Moran, an American western frontier landscape artist.  Mount Moran dominates the northern section of the Teton Range rising 6,000 feet above Jackson Lake."Mt. Moran" is painted in oil on panel and comes ready to frame as shown in a frame suggestion (a floater frame I get from pictureframes.com) or can sit on a shelf or easel. 

HAPPY CREATING!
