April Painting Offer
The painting offer is a month long auction that I offer quarterly.
I believe in giving back to my friends and collectors who have supported me during my art journey. I like to make art affordable so that all of my friends can afford an original painting.
This auction gives everyone a shot at the offered painting. These paintings will be selected randomly from my inventory. Some are new, some older. I’ll select a variety of subjects and mediums as well as a variety of sizes and substrates.
My Painting Offer for April is a painting titled Underneath. It’s a 12″ x 9″ acrylic/mixed media painting on watercolor paper mounted on board. The photo shows the painting framed, but the frame is not included for the painting offer.
This painting is favorite of mine. In fact, it was used for my business cards and other promotional materials. I just love the vibrant complimentary colors I used, orange and purple. These are favorite colors for me to use in my garden as well. They pop up frequently, especially orange zinnias and purple Angelonia.
There is another version of this painting underneath the one you see. If you would like to see it click here to read a blog post about it and why I painted over it.
Mother Nature is my constant muse and this painting clearly shows my love of trees and leaves. Trees and leaves show up often in my paintings and are a favorite of mine to paint. I constantly scour the countryside as I drive looking at the “bones” of trees and I make mental notes of special trees I see and how they grow or lean or spread.
I frequently stop on the side of the road and snap photos for reference. Winter and early spring are the best times because that’s when I can really see the skeletal part of the tree. There are definitely favorites on my regular routes to town.

I will post new offers on this page as soon as I receive them. This is a wonderful way to get an original painting for far less than its retail value. I’m hoping these make an offer auctions will become very popular. I choose randomly from my body of work for these monthly auctions. Good luck!
