Week 10 Print, SS Sleepytime, A Whale, a Full Moon a Sailboat and a Lighthouse

Here is my new print. I painted it a few months ago, but I wanted to portray the moon and the whale 'communicating' and I had these bubbles going between them. It just didn't work. I finally decided to paint them out and I liked it a lot better.
The Boat is the Sailing Ship, SS Sleepytime. The moon has a wry smile and the whale is kind of sassy. The original is 18x24 on canvas and is for sale for $200. The print is $2 for a 5x7 on etsy and if you are interested in the original just email me at juliefillo@hotmail.com

Late with the print this week

I'm going to be late with my print this week, probably tomorrow. I had my grandson all weekend and no time for painting.

Week 8 Print, With Cherries

I hurt my back, I think from swinging my grandson a little too much. (might still have been worth it to hear him laugh) We went to two weddings yesterday, saw old friends and family and 2 beautiful brides.
This weeks print is a match for last weeks, but it has cherries, as promised. It's here

Thank you for all the love and comments. I appreciate them all and as soon as I can I will visit your blog and say something to you. :)

Week 7 print 3 Pears

This painting was originally painted in 2008. It has had at least 3 backgrounds, and I never felt good about it until this incarnation. There is another painting that goes with it that has cherries!
I finished reading Andrew Wyeth, A Secret Life. Gosh, what a story! I highly recommend the book if you are interested in how an artist makes decisions. I remember when the Helga paintings came out, all the speculation about what was going on. It is fascinating to read the family's official stand on that. This book was written while he was still alive and with his blessing.
Here is the Wiki article about him.
