Oh Faithful of the Light, Sun, and Sea is one painting from Leanne's 'Cradle of Life' Collection. Oh Faithful of the Light, Sun and Sea Oil & cold wax on canvas 24 x 18 $2,000 Leanne Fink

They serve as something of a playground for me. I can try out my ideas on a smaller scale. Landscape Study 56 Oil on linen wrapped panel 12.5 x 14.5 $200 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-August Anvil

Hopkins, Laura-August Anvil

This painting of a beautifully majestic cloud viewed from my home is a result of a more contemplative and reflective approach to my work. I frequently paint an entire painting in one go, with only a few minor adjustments after it is dry. For this painting, after the first pass dried, I employed thin transparent glazes and thin layers of opaque paint (scumbles) to attempt to capture the heat and humidity of an August Afternoon.

I finished this painting right around the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote. I learned that the sunflower was one of the symbols of this movement, so I dedicated this painting in gratitude to the suffragettes that made my right to vote possible.

I often find myself wide awake very early in the morning, even when on vacation. One of the benefits of being up so early at the beach is getting to see some spectacular sunrises.
