Tea Cup with Bluebird - Oil Painting "Tea Time"

"Tea Time"

Here is the new companion piece to "The Breakfast Blend" painting.  This one is called "Tea Time."  The blue and white china cup was from some photographs I took in "Winslow, Arizona" on "Route 66" at the famous "La Posada Hotel."  It is "the last great railroad hotel" and is full of history.  It was designed by architect Jane Colter.  The hotel has been restored and it is a fun little stop to see all of the historic preservation as well as the ballroom and lovely gardens.  There is also a wonderful restaurant there called "The Turquoise Room" and the food is amazing.  This is where I took the pictures of the old china set.   I painted in the little bluebird on the cup and "Tea Time" will make the perfect companion piece to go with your "Breakfast Blend" painting, or wonderful by itself too.

I have a special going on now on this "giclee" on board until August 15th.  If you place your order before then it is only $75.00.  It will also come with a wood easel and free shipping in the U.S.  (only until August 15th)  It will be at regular price after that.   It measures 7"x7" and will compliment any room.  It is also a great "gift" size.

If you would like to pre-order one now, just drop me an email. 

(The original oil painting is also available if interested, please contact me for price.)

I am very excited to say that one of my "Jazz" inspired paintings was selected for the Sixth Annual Juried Exhibition of the "International Guild of Realsim."  This show will be hosted by the "Sage Creek Gallery" in Santa Fe.  This will be my first time showing with the Realism Guild and I am just so honored to be showing with these incredible artists.  I had hoped to make it through the first round of judging by the IGOR (Guild), but didn't know if I would make it through the final selection made by the "Sage Creek Gallery."   The opening reception is on Friday September 30, 2011, from 5-8pm.  Santa Fe is a wonderful place to visit so if you are in the area please stop by.  This show will hang through most of October and the gallery is right down town in Santa Fe.

Red White & Blue Oil Painting "Arriving In Style"

"Arriving In Style"

I was trying to think of a painting that I have that is "Red White and Blue" for the "4th of July" ... that is also still available.  This oil painting "Arriving In Style" is "Red White and Blue."  It is painted on gallery wrapped canvas so the design continues around the edges of the canvas.  The size is 20x20x1.50".    It features a mother "bird" waiting for her eggs to hatch in style.  It is priced at $2000. but for the month of July only I will offer this painting for sale at "half price".  It was a lot of work and is also a very cheerful painting that will brighten up any room.  You can contact me with any questions or if you would like to see a high resolution photograph.
