"SPRING ASPEN" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA ON CRADLED PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE FINE ART

To paint aspen for me is a joy!  I spend so much time in and around the aspen tree, I feel like they are family!  This painting was from a need to feel the spring time at the tips of my fingers!  I love the soft colors that bring spring, and that is what this painting is about.  You will see bits of paper peeking through, and a mark or so here and there from charcoal to define a bit of the abstract feel of the leaves.  I usually paint the subject matter in oil, so the top of it all will be oil.  This 18"x18" cradled painting comes ready to hang.
The sides are stained with a grey stain to compliment and unify what you see in the trees themselves.  This gives the painting a completed, contemporary look.

here in this detail shot you can see the paper peeking through and some of the fun stamping that makes for interest.
more fun implied texture and pattern in this detail

KEEP LOOKING FOR THAT INSPIRATION!

PET PORTRAITS, CANVAS BASKETS AND ORNAMENT FUN and MORE! © SAUNDRA LANE FINE ART

Raja
pet kid
commissioned



Raja is a kitty that has passed on to kitty heaven.  I did this commission for a dear friend who loved her dearly!  These are important portraits for me, they are a tribute...they make me smile, and cry and remember how important life is in all forms!  I loved her coloring all ready, but as is my style, I play with color (all except the eyes)...it's the fun part of being an artist!
Sasha
pet kid
commission
Sasha is the pet kid of a gentleman who owns a business up here in Conifer.  She was commissioned by Raja's mom as a gift, so I try to say very little...no giving away surprises!! :)  I love this dog...she poses for pics...she's a sweetie pie for sure!

This is an unusual but fun time of year for me...I spend a lot of time on commissions and gifts that make it look like I'm not doing anything, when in fact, it's one of the busiest times of year for me.  I just don't post a lot of them as folks who are recipients of the gifts might see!  It is after the holidays that I start back on the main body of my work...so hang on! :)

I've been really busy creating canvas baskets and affirmation ornaments for classes and such...below are just a few of what I've done.








and, a couple more commissions...
My son-in-law LOVES the Huskers...doing a helmet was my daughter's idea...so that is next for my easel...and one that is very important, that I will probably cry through, but I'm honored to do it...My co-grandma's father passed away recently.  She took this photo of her holding her dad's hand...my sweet daughter thought it might be a good gift for her this year, so this will be a blessing painting!
SO, as you can see, busy days here in my studio!  I love this time of year for the gifts and commissions I am honored to do, and know that soon I will be back at my easel with my mixed media paintings...some of which I've already started!  I hope this year finds you able to do blessings in whatever creative way is YOUR way!

KEEP THE INSPIRATION IN YOUR HEART!!
