'Tropical Calm' ~~ 'Serenidad Tropical'
Oil 5"x7" ~~ Oleo 13cm x 18cm

Recently I returned to oil painting. I'm having a one-woman show in February and will be combining my smaller woodcuts with small paintings. It will be fun curating my prints to fit with the 'ocean' paintings.

My husband liked this so much that it will be our yearly Christmas card, saving me the trouble of doing a woodcut... (which would probably have been ready to mail out after Three Kings Day-January 6).


Recientemente empeze de nuevo pintando en oleo. En febrero tendre una exhibicion sola y planeo combinar mis grabados en madera con pinturas pequenas. Seria interesante combinar los grabados con pinturas del mar.

A mi marido le gusto tanto que sera nuestro tarjeta de Navidad este ano, asi ahorandome el tiempo de no hacer un grabado... que seria bueno porque probablemente serian listas para el correo despues del Dia del los Reyes Magos.

This painting is SO gorgeous! Nice work!

Diane Cutter said...

Sharri... Thanks so much. I have to say I've been loving your recent pieces. I truly wish I could get up your way just to see your work.

Celeste... Ah, the dark side is wonderful! I'd forgotten how much I love to spread the paint around, so much more spontaneous than woodcuts.

Giatw... Thank you. I love it when new people visit.

Love the depth of that beautiful blue. Your show will knock socks off!

Hi Diane, I enjoyed the quiet of this piece. There seems to be something smoldering under the still veneer...or is there? Interesting and intriguing.
I like your work so much I am "tagging" your blog. I've added you to my blog roll. Please see today's posting on my blog regarding the tag.
