McAdams, Kyle-Lawn Surfer

McAdams, Kyle-Lawn Surfer

Growing up in Houston, the gulf is only a 45-minute drive and in summer, in a beach town like Galveston, we see unique images like a suburban guy (probably from Houston) walking across a town green with a surfboard. Surfing is not really much of a thing in Galveston -- but surreal images like suburban surfers are pretty normal. (If only he had a cowboy hat that would have been perfect.)

Miller, Cynthia-Adventure to Paradise

Miller, Cynthia-Adventure to Paradise

I enjoy experimenting with uses of gold paint mixed with other acrylic colors, especially when applying numerous layers. As I applied paint mixed with gold, I felt an adventure unfolding in front of me. The many pathways represented stepping stones and numerous directions.

Nicely, Elise-Fish Shack

Nicely, Elise-Fish Shack

J Fish shacks can be found up and down the East Coast. They line the Chesapeake Bay, and are found on most tidal rivers. Fishermen sell their catch to the fish shack owners, who, in turn, sell to distributors that deliver to grocery stores. To me they represent the toil of many people who rely on fishing for their livelihood, and are a monument to their life’s work. Fish Shack Acrylic on canvas 12 x 16 $350 Elise Nicely

Nicely, Elise-Hatteras Evening

Nicely, Elise-Hatteras Evening

Just before the sun sets at the beach, the shore is bathed in a peach glow. That is what I was trying to capture with this painting. The undercoat is orange.

Palmer, Rachel Garcia-The Garden Ladies' Roses

I used to pass by this little garden weekly on my way back to the parking lot after work. I never saw anyone tending the flowers, but it was located in the rear of a retirement faculty.

Who doesn't love butterflies lighting gently on flowers all summer long? I dream of butterflies as soon as our weather gets warmer, and I am so inspired watching these clever, important creatures as they do their valuable work. Their wing patterns inspire my imagination and dreams! Butterfly Dreams Mixed media 24 x 24 $450 Melanie Stanley
