Brush n Easel

This being a new year, I gave some thought as to what my first blog should be. It's no secret that the ink has been slow to flow for me for a little time now.

I decided that I really would like to honor Elizabeth and share some of her artwork with you. I love the canvases that she has painted, even though she prefers a low profile. So, what better way to start the year off.

This one was commissioned and called "Undaunted", it is acrylic on a 24x30 canvas board. The clipper ship is named 'Restless'.

"Vanishing Breed" is a 9x12 acrylic on canvas board.

Eric, you call tell Elizabeth she now has two new fans. Lisa paints, acrylics and oils. She loves the oils, but I think she is better with the acrylics.

Good new start to the new Year.

Later .....

Eric Valentine said...

Elizabeth says thanks Roy.

She can appreciate Lisa's preference for acrylics over oils, for she went that route herself, though she still will do both at times.

I think it is wonderful that a person can create such beauty on a canvas.. :)

Thank you for your visit my friend, stay well. :)

Just look at the eyes of those wolves, each on of them have such character and different personality. Lovely.

Say hi to Elizabeth.

Cheers Eric:))

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Tim, yes we thought the eyes were a nice capture too..

We wish you continued success with your painting Tim. :)

Thanks for visiting again my friend, we hope all is well with you.. :)

Wow and wow again Elizabeth! What wonderful pieces. Love the blues and lighting in the first one. I think you have caught the essence of a wolf extremely well.
Beautiful work - I do hope we get to see more.

Eric Valentine said...

Elizabeth says thank you Janice. I love those paintings myself. :)

We will put the odd one in here & there; for there are a few yet to be seen in the blog. :)
