Kincaid's Paintings

I haven't posted in so long because I've been a little busy with life. Foe those of you that have been following me over the, I'm home now! I made it back to the Southbay after 16 years of living up north. This post is for you Chip. Maybe you'll get to Kincaid's to see them in real life sometime. The foods pretty good. 

Original is in Kincaid's Redondo

Peonies!


12x12 oil available here


close up so you can see the brushstrokes 

and on the easel 



I love all flowers but peonies are one of my favorites! I bought these last month at Trader Joe's and they started out hot pink then faded to this beautiful peach color. I'm trying to paint and post daily starting today. We'll see if I can keep it up this time!

Solo Show in Santa Barbara!

She Sits in Red SOLD
So, I hung my first show in Santa Barbara the other day! I hope it's not the last. I absolutely love it there. The solo show will be going on thru September so there's lots of time to see it. The location is a hair salon, called Caio.  
(805) 569-9324



 Here's what you can see there- 

Love is Blind


Spring Magnolia



Norcal Winery and Small Winery on the shelf



Lady in red 'It Takes Time" and Spello, Italy



These look nice together!



Small sail boats and Sunset Vineyard
and more. So if you're going to be in the area stop by! 

close up of a commissioned piece SOLD

I'm in a new place now, no longer in Ventura so my art may reflect that move. I feel much better where I'm at now but I do miss the beauty of Central California. I'm sure I'll be back...if for no other reason then to deliver more paintings!

Spring Flowers



Spring Floral 10x10 oil on canvas

Spring is in full bloom now and so is my inspiration! I finally feel that passion again and can't paint fast enough! It's so good to be back. I hope you're all well. 
I'm working on some daffodils from Trader Joe's today...

Guardian Angels


Available here 
"The Watcher" was inspired by our guardian angels who watch over us. This is an 11x14 oil on canvas with accents of gold metallic paint. Lots of thick paint and texture to this one!

I've been busy! Working on a few large pieces that will hopefully be on display in Lahaina! Super excited about that! Another hollyhocks and winery coming soon too! Oh..and some sunflowers and magenta stock that I just picked up from Trader Joe's. So many things to paint!

Another Red Dress


The Night Approaches 8x10 
I think this may be the 4th "lady in red" painting I've done now. Something about that color and of course the gorgeous gowns. This one is an 8x10 oil on traditional canvas and will look great in a beautiful ornate frame! Someone recently suggested that I make a series of three and I think I may do that. Just have to decide whether to change the pose, the dress, or the background.

Sunflowers and Hydrangeas






She's a covergirl!
I just received my copies of Sasee magazine, which is distributed along the Southern Coastal cities like Charleston! The quote is beautiful too!

Jacaranda inspiration!



If you've been following me for any amount of time you probably know how much I love jacaranda trees. Well, I'm in heaven! They're everywhere here! This is an 8x10 inch oil on panel. I'm still working on it but should have it listed in my etsy shop soon! 
Today I'll be painting plein air at the ocean!

Roses in an Aqua Blue Pot

available for purchase

This is my latest oil painting of red, magenta, and cream roses. I did a very similar painting back in 2012, pretty sure it was then. (do you recognize it?) But this time I combined my palette knife style with it. It gives it a very romantic, almost antique feeling. I hope someone loves it as much as I do! I might just have to keep it! The price is $225 which is already low and won't be put on sale. You may have notice I had a flash sale to earn some funds for my upcoming trip to Kauai. It was successful and I may choose a few more to offer before I go. Just consider that I already price my art much lower than most so there's not a lot of room for discounts. I do this so that anyone can collect my art. I also offer layaway plans to make it even easier. Best thing is once you purchase your first piece, any original piece after that will be 10% off (just use the code you receive with your purchase).
Thank you so much for supporting this living artist! Your support keeps me creating new pieces and I really, seriously can't do it without you!

Finished! 30 paintings in 30 days!




Here's 25 of the 30. I used picmonkey and it didn't give me 30 squares. But all of my 30 can be found on my instagram, as I painted them and posted.
