Fish on a Ferris Wheel

‘Fish on a Ferris Wheel’, Ten, 2×3 acrylic on paper, individually framed.

Now and then, I do something I find wildly entertaining. That was the case with ‘Fish on a Ferris Wheel’. It consisted of 10, 2×3 hand painted fish on a manually rotating wheel. Every tiny fish was a different color. It was a great conversation piece and spinning it was fun too!

Someone found it equally entertaining and bought it last weekend. She really loved it. It was one of those piece I hated to see go, but I’m happy it found a good home.

‘The Catch of the Day’, Three, 4×6 canvases, (tryptic) mounted on a 11×30 solid wood frame.

You never know what will sell in this business. To my amazement, I still have ‘The Catch of the Day’. So many complements on this one, but I think it needs a special home: maybe a restaurant or on the wall of someone who boats or fishes. If you are (or you know of) that person, do I have a special deal for you!

This was a rescue frame from the 1950’s or 1960’s found at an estate sale. It is a heavy piece of wood and it was a mess. It hung vertically, was painted black and not in the best of shape. It had three, little recessed framing areas that when purchased tht had the remains of some family photos pasted on them. They were peeling. For me, it became a tryptic: Three segmented works that create one.

I painted the frame to resemble water. Then I painted three, 4×6 canvases to complete my fish. It goes without saying that I love color and it was never going to be boring! Pick it up at the special price of $125, or add $40. for shipping anywhere in the continental US.

Don’t let this be the one that gets away! Complete the contact form above and I will send payment details or answer any questions you may have.

My latest and greatest

“Red Sky at Night”, 12×12 acrylic on canvas, framed
“Nothing But Blue Skies”, 12×12 acrylic on canvas, framed

I continue to try to find something to produce a consistent body of work to no avail. I thought it was going to be fish, but then I digressed. Sometimes digressions are very cool!

Having said that, here are my two newest works. I really love these. Each measures 12×12 and is framed to 15×15. Seriously…can you picture these on a hard to decorate place in your home or office?

Coming soon….we are combining our Own A Debbie website with this gallery. We are currently putting this site together and will let you know when it’s up and running here. When it is, you will be able to order reprints and home decor, directly from here!

Plain and Simple

“Potted Flowers” is just that: potted flowers. Sometimes I just want to paint something with a lot of character, but not a a lot of complication. While it is plain and simple, it does add a lot of character to a room. The original is a 12×12 acrylic on paper in a 20×20 frame. The original is on sale while you read this, for $125, plain and simple. No shipping. Must be picked up. Use the contact form above for questions or to purchase. “Potted Flowers” means you have flowers in your home year round. It doesn’t get any better!

Art – It’s not just on canvas!

I’m finally gearing up for some arts and crafts shows, the first in over a year, and I have lots of new items that I will be selling. Among them are these beautiful, hand painted coaster sets.

Let me tell you a little about them.

The pink/peach set was about 4 weeks in the making, with a lot of that drying time between coats and edging. Speaking of edging, this set is outlined in raised gold and the set is covered with resin and has a cork bottom. There are four coasters in this set.

Pink, peach and rose coasters. Set of four.

The lilac/blue set also took about four weeks to complete, only this set is outlined in raised silver metal. It too is covered in resin. Both this and the above set began life as 4×4 while tiles. There are four coasters in this set.

Purple, rose and lilac coasters.

The green set is glass with glass footings. It too was hand painted with small dots around the edges. This was painted on the bottom and was cured over two months, so you never have to worry about a glass scratching it. There are two in this set.

Two, hand painted glass coasters.

A new painting to ring in 2021!

“Continuum”, three, 8×10, acrylic on linen canvas. (Approximately 10×26 when hung}

Continuing in the tradition of Jackson Pollack comes, “Continuum”, a tryptic consisting of three, 8×10 acrylics on canvas. These are designed to be placed side by side with minimal space between each. Once hung, it would measure about 10×26-perfect for that hard to fit space! Go ahead. Buy it….your wall is crying for it.

“Red and Black on Linen”

“Red and Black on Linen”, 16×20 Acrylic on linen canvas.

I am inspired by other artists. I created “Carefree in Givenchy” which was inspired by Monet after a visit to the French Countryside. “Poppies, Poppies Everywhere” came about after a visit to Arles and St. Remy, France where Van Gogh spend a lot of time. “Red and Black on Linen” came about after looking at paintings by Jackson Pollack.

Many critics pooh pooh his work, saying that he simply threw paint on a canvas. Those who know better understand that it takes a certain amount of talent to get the finished project to mean something.

Having said that, I decided to give it a try. First, it’s not as easy as it looks. Pollack used linen canvases to do many of his paintings and I did the same. Linen canvas is very unforgiving. It requires prior planning because wherever the paint lands, it oozes into the canvas, not a lot, but enough to make a difference.

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this and I hope you enjoy it as well. Thank you, Jackson Pollack, for the inspiration!

My Latest Project

I had surgery on my thumb about a month ago, and it’s only now that I’m in starting to paint again.

I have missed it.

My latest project, “Harmony from Crimson to Purple” is a 24×13, 3-D, acrylic on canvas, mounted on wood. Making this was fun! Showing it to you in two dimensions is challenging. So, here it is framed framed and hanging nicely over a sofa. The original is unframed. I do hope you will enjoy looking at it as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it.

And yes…It is for sale!

Get a Piece of the Rock!

“Coquina”, 12×12 acrylic on canvas

A few months back, I became fascinated with an oversized coquina stone at our condo complex and Coquina” was born! This is a 12×12 acrylic on canvas. (Framed to 16×16).Please contact me using the contact form above if you are interested in purchasing this original work.

A little history:

The one above is located within our condo complex. It was one of the largest I’ve seen – It stands about 7′ tall; 5′ wide and weighs about 13,000 pounds. With a little research, I found that these stones are between 12 thousand and 2 million years old. The perfectly cylindrical holes are not man made – they are formed naturally.

A century ago, the rocks were used to make many of the old buildings you see in St. Augustine and the Sugar Mills in the Daytona Beach area. Some are still used as natural seawalls today.  We were fortunate that many of the larger ones, like the one above, were saved when they excavated for homes and buildings. They make beautiful, natural sculptures.
