blueberry red

with 4 comments

The Isaac’s Way Summer Art Auction #27 in Fredericton, New Brunswick has ended! And my painting ‘morning sky’ has sold for the full price of $260. I am so pleased since the charity is to provide for MUSIC lessons for kids-in-need.

~

My painting in the next Art Auction (runs September 25 to late January, 2017) is perfect for fall. It is entitled ‘blueberry red’ and depicts a blueberry field near Stewarton, New Brunswick in late autumn when the blueberry leaves turn a brilliant red.  The painting is 24″ wide by 20″ high, acrylic with gallery edges. I am donating 50% of the proceeds from my painting to the charity. I hope you like it!

Only a few more days to own some reasonably-priced art and help kids-in-need. As of January 4, 2016 this 25th auction has sold 22 paintings and raised $7,600 for art lessons for kids.

My next submission, for the Isaac’s Way 26th Art Auction and Sale, is a landscape.  The piece features a view of the Saint John River, from the Nerepis Marsh at Grand Bay-Westfield towards the Westfield Ferry. It is entitled ‘across the bay’ (24” wide by 20” high, acrylic on canvas, unframed with gallery edges). This auction will run from January 27, 2016 to late May, 2016.  The proceeds from the auction will go to sponsor kids-in-need. I am donating 50% of the proceeds from my painting to the charity.

‘Outside-In No. 2’ – bringing the outside into our homes

with 2 comments

I have submitted another painting to Isaac’s Way Restaurant, for their 24th Art Auction and Sale.  This event will run from May 24, 2015 to September 20, 2015.  The proceeds from the auction go to sponsor kids-in-need for theatre lessons.

~

Looking for a theme for my recent work, I decided to do a series of still life paintings about the many elements of the out-of-doors we bring into our homes.  This includes items collected on walks, motifs on fabrics and metals, small statuary and so on.  My second painting in the series is ‘Outside-In No. 2’ – a still life of books, a jar of potpourri, a metal bird sculpture, pine cones and my fern curtains.

For the painting, I used Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt Umber, Titanium White, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Yellow and Quinacridone Magenta. I finished some surfaces in the painting with Golden Polymer Medium (Gloss) to give some items shine and a smooth texture.

The first painting in the series was ‘outside-in’, currently displayed in the 23rd Art Auction at Isaac’s Way. It features a moss terrarium and dragon sculpture.  There are still a few days remaining in the 23rd auction (until May 24, 2015) so if you are local, it is a great way to own some original art and contribute to a worthy cause!  The paintings in the auction can be seen at:

art auction – update

with 4 comments

At the end of January, 2015, I published a post about the 23rd Art Auction now being held at Isaac’s Way Restaurant in Fredericton, New Brunswick  ( https://nichepoetryandprose.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/art-auction/ ).

~

Isaac’s Way organizes three auctions each year, each raising funds for children’s charities in one of four artistic areas: dance, art, music, and theatre. The art is sold by silent auction to raise funds for kids-in-need.  Since 2007, the auction has raised more than $92,200 !

~

My painting for this auction, entitled ‘blue stone’, has sold.  I now have another painting to replace ‘blue stone’ in the auction.
~

The new painting is an acrylic entitled ‘outside-in’ (24″ x 20″, unframed, gallery edges).  It is a painting of a dragon guarding a terrarium, based on a photo posted here ( https://nichepoetryandprose.wordpress.com/2015/01/05/one-small-green-world/ )

Jane Tims  'outside-in'  February 12, 2015

The painting ‘outside-in’ was fun to do.  The outside has been brought inside in many ways – the mosses in the terrarium, the wood of the table, the vines, the fern pattern on the curtains.  And yet, the dragon turns to gaze out the window (sometimes his eye looks at ‘you’).  I used four main colours – Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt Umber, Titanium White and Phthalo Blue – and touches of Phthalo Green, Cadmium Yellow and Quinacridone Magenta.  To give shine to all the glass and wood in the painting, I used several layers of a tinted glaze.

~

The more than 60 art pieces on display at Isaac’s Way will be for sale until May 24, 2015  ( http://isaacsway.ca/art/ ).  This auction will sponsor MUSIC lessons for kids.

~

Issac’s Way also has, for auction and sale, paintings created live during Fredericton’s recent winter festival, Winterfesthiver ( if you are on Facebook, just look for Winterfest Art Auction 2015 ).

~

I am so proud to take part in this worthwhile project.
