18”x 18” oil on canvas in white wooden frame. “Bed of Roses,” is one of many paintings over the years where I’ve cut one of my old paintings from its stretcher bars and re-stretched it into a new size and orientation to create something fresh. In this case, I allowed many sections of the earlier painting to peek through, bringing a sense of movement beneath the striped leaves. The original painting still lives in the leaves creating surprise and depth. For purchase or to see more find my website link in my profile amy-martin-artist.squarespace.com.

This technique was new to me. I’m totally satisfied with my first attempt. My little brother said this painting would look good hanging in a bathroom. We held it up to a wall in our house and he was right! Perfect for a half bath. If y’all are looking for paintings, drop a comment with what y’all would like to see! ❤️🌹

Clutter is a form of visual distraction.
Everything in our vision pulls at our attention, The less “stuff” we have, less visual stress.
Minimalism is one of those concepts, much like simple living where it can mean different things to different people.
And that's ok
Minimalism is something that should be personal and unique to the person living it.
There is no single set of rules.
All ten drawings of the challenge 🙌🏻 I definitely have my favorites and to be honest there are some I am ready to scrap! However, all ten will be available for sale on my Etsy page! Stay tuned for my next challenge starting VERY soon! #art
I know y'all think I have just quit painting, however just the opposite is true. I just have so many in process that I haven't finished. 😬
This little trio of tables came in needing several repairs. I used VM&D Cashmere, Crackle it! And natural sienna wax to give them a nice 'well-used' look. The pictures aren't great...I had a little incedent by where I took a shortcut to the ground. 😖😩 oops!
maybe over a year old idk what to tell you. I feel like i should tag and credit @vexx because yknow I basically copied his little doodle characters 😬
“Patricia” #portraitsketch #abstractartwork 😲 A painting done with a lovely live model in two hours. An example of painting only the planes of the face with no blending.
“Convento dei Frati Cappuccini” by Jie Grenn #ooak #oilpainting # italy 😋 The Conventions dei Frati Cappuccini is located in a town called Sestri Lavante, a short train ride from the Cinque Terra. One evening I found myself on the beach of the “Bay of Fairy Tails” (Hans Christian Andersen lived here in 1833) facing this hillside at that magical time of the day when the lights are coming on and the sun is setting. I had no choice but to paint this awe inspiring scene so I could capture the feeling and share it with others.
