Rise Above it all

Rise is an acrylic painting on 6 x 6 wood with a surprise added to it. I often find bits and pieces of things like a perfect leaf, or a beautiful flower or seed while on my walks with the dog and I bring them home. They can be used for ideas, or actually incorporated into the work in my mixed media art.

Lots of fun colour in this one, the blue of the sky and bright reds... it is an abstract landscape piece with a fading barn rising up in the distance and texture added for fun.  Signed by me, the artist and ready to hang. No frame necessary.

Have a good night folks ;)

Remember when everything was blue and beautiful and you could lie down in the field and look up and see flower stems and blue sky and stillness? And you felt like everything was peaceful and it was so quiet... except for that darn mosquito or fly

I wanted to paint something abstract but it feels like a nature landscape to me with those flowers and that sense of freedom. This has a lot of texture in it and is almost 3D.

Painted acrylics on 6x6 wood panel, painted on the sides so need for a frame - ready to hang, signed front and back by me, the artist Claire Bull.

Have a great night folks - "Remember" and try to keep forging on making more memories as I am trying to do with you. ;)

A red Rose Garden to help ease us all through the snowstorms and ice and high winds. I hope everyone is safe and warm out there. The roses will be back again soon with their beautiful soft petals and lovely scent.
This is acrylic on 6 x 6 inch Ampersand artist panel, signed and ready to hang.
Happy 2014 everyone, I think the Roses are positive and bright and happy, and hopefully that is what the new year will be for us all.
Have a good night everyone ;)

Winter Trees

Winter Trees
5x7 acrylic on canvas
Art by Claire Bull

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 - Hope all of you survived the ice storms and power outages and we are all back to "normal". The only good thing about the horrible winter storms is the ability to have some new material and photos to paint - if you were lucky enough to watch from indoors all cozy by the fire and have your shelter, heat and food, you would appreciate the beauty and know that we can somehow take away a bit of positive from it all.
My parents suffered tremendously and so many others have suffered true devastation. We saw streets with driveways full of trees on cars and houses with trees on them and ice and cars in ditches and we ourselves experienced it all with my parents and it was worse than I could ever have imagined and cannot describe 
I hope this gives some of you a bit of winter's positive side and the glory of the snow and ice 
This is a second one in the series ... the first was "Winter Wonderland" and this matching 5 x 7 is called "Winter Trees"
both available as originals, prints and reproductions - enjoy
