Duvall, Peggy-Poppies  Reeds

Duvall, Peggy-Poppies Reeds

Framing and patterns are tools I use in painting to provide a room in which to study a plant with my paint. I believe this is a method I have developed through both my design work and my gardening habits. Poppy and Reeds Watercolor, Ink, Pencil & Acrylic on Cotton 10 x 10 $285 Peggy Duvall

Duvall, Peggy-Prairie Bloom

Duvall, Peggy-Prairie Bloom

I am fascinated by the phases of a bloom and the endless information gathered up-close. My interest is to delve into the paint and FEEL as I do when studying a bloom. Reproduction is futile and unimportant to me. But I can approach the emotional fuel I get in gardening with the painting process and share that with others. Prairie Bloom Watercolor on Cotton 11 x 11 $485 Peggy Duvall

Ellis, Luke-Cow

Ellis, Luke-Cow

While painting I think about the past sometimes. Having been raised on a farm with cows and sheep I often want to paint them, I start painting and these things appear on the canvas.

FlynnMara-IntotheLightAcrylic

FlynnMara-IntotheLightAcrylic

Everyone knows the sky is basically blue and most grass is green. But what we see on any given day depends on so many other elements, such as wind, rain, heat, smog, flora, etc. With this landscape piece, I wanted to highlight the endless array of colors present in the natural world if we look closely enough. It also reminds me how much more vivid colors appear after a torrential downpour. Into the Light Acrylic on Canvas 10 x 10 $185 Mara Flynn

Green, Marci-A Special Invitation

A Special Invitation was painted at Bunny Mellon's Property, Oak Spring Farm. It's always a treat to be invited to see her property, and an even bigger treat to get to paint it.

Hawkins, Zoe-Mnemosyne #7

Hawkins, Zoe-Mnemosyne #7

My overall theme in my body of work is flora, the plant world. In this series I was inspired by the birch forests of Siberia and the roses from Timisoara's Rose Park in Romania. Greek mythology comes into play because I always imagined the muses as beings that are very connected to nature, permeating it, inspiring it to grow and from every which way.

Hopkins, Laura-Autumn Gorve VIII

Hopkins, Laura-Autumn Gorve VIII

This piece is one of a series of autumn themed paintings in which I experimented with non-traditional tools for applying paint. I used a textured ground and a window washing squeegee to establish the verticals and horizontals and a number of glazes to bring a luminous quality to the finished work. I love to experiment with new techniques. Autumn Grove VIII Oil on Panel 6 x 8 $350 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-Landscape at Evening

Hopkins, Laura-Landscape at Evening

As a painter in the American Tonalist tradition, I try in my work to suggest the feeling or mood of a place.

It is my hope that this quiet scene offers you a respite from our fast moving and turbulent world. Landscape at Evening Oil on Panel 8 x 10 $350 Laura Hopkins

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-Yellow Sweetheart Roses

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-Yellow Sweetheart Roses

Sweetheart roses tend to be used as “fillers” in a larger bouquet, added for a pop of color or to fill in bare spots.

Richards Kim_ Wild for Sunflowers_oil

This painting is part of a series of paintings inspired by bouquets I purchased from a farm in Leesburg. With this group of paintings, I zoomed into each bouquet and painted just a small part of it, focusing not only on the flowers, but the spaces in between the leaves and flowers. I was trying to capture the meditative feeling that I experience while I paint. Wild for Sunflowers Oil 8 x 10 $250 Kim T. Richards

Bouquets purchased directly from the grower or from the farmer's market are particularly interesting to me. I love the unusual greenery and blooms included in these bouquets. This painting is part of a series that was inspired by bouquets I purchased from a farm in Leesburg. When white flowers are surrounded by softer colors and greenery, they become the most vibrant flower in the bouquet. Summer’s Cheer Oil 12 x 16 $450 Kim T. Richards

Stevens, Libby-Field Before Mowing

Late September turns the long grass to a golden color, so I love to drive out along the roads and try to catch the images before they are cut down…I believe this was along Snickersville Turnpike. Field Before Mowing Pastel 9 x 12 $500 Libby Stevens

I came to paint the pumpkins, but the painting didn't seem to need them in the end. The trees were classic Virginia countryside and the field was full of color, including pops of orange from the pumpkins, purplish pink from the tops of some tall grass, and gorgeous yellow flowers. The House Across the Field Oil 6 x 9 $375 Margaret Stewart

StewartMargaret_JonesPointLight_oil_6x9

Jones Point Lighthouse in Alexandria, Virginia was glowing in the October sun that day, and there were so many colors in the field it begged to be captured, even though I arrived with a different scene in mind to paint. There is something so fun about painting that lighthouse with its cupola for the light, but that day the field was just as much fun to paint. Jones Point Light Oil 6 x 9 $375 Margaret Stewart

Whittle, Patricia-Roses

Whittle, Patricia-Roses

A piece that began with drops of acrylic inks suspended in water manipulated and swirled then left to dry into an amorphous background of colorful shapes. As I studied this background hints of an image came to me and through negative painting, glazes and eventually dipping pen embellishments, the final painting was realized. I find this one of the most exciting ways to create a painting. Roses Oil 8 x 8 $180 Patricia Whittle

Whittle, Patricia-The Artist

Whittle, Patricia-The Artist

This painting is my attempt to depict the smallness of man when confronted with the vastness of nature. In addition, this image can also serve as a metaphor regarding the artists relationship to the world. Painted outdoors at a plein-air event with the Loudoun Sketch Club. The Artist Oil 5 x 7 $160 Patricia Whittle

Whittle_Pat_DistantPond

My landscapes frequently depict a long view. The challenge of presenting the illusion of 3D space on a 2D surface is always a challenge and especially so when the surface is a mere 5x7. I loved how this small painting depicts so much, reminding us of how even the small things in life really matter. Painted outdoors at a plein-air event with the Loudoun Sketch Club.

The mauve-pink blossoms of redbuds last two to three weeks in spring, and then the heart-shaped leaves take their turn to distract us while driving. My goal is to use art as a tool to complement and supplement conservation efforts. Dancing Redbuds in Summer Acrylic 10 x 8 $200 Linda Bell Wine
