Sunday Swim 2 Watercolor & Ink

Inspiration for this piece as well as a lot of my artwork is Lake Texoma, the largest lake here in Texas where I lived for over 15 years. The peace, tranquility, beauty and artistic inspiration I find there almost makes me cry. If you're a creative, artistic soul, then I'm sure you understand what I mean.

This watercolor and india ink painting is for sale on my official website under the WATERCOLOR section that I just started. It is not matted nor framed. It is painted on Strathmore 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. Measures 12 x 9-inches. I used alcohol and salt effects with the watercolor to obtain the design within the colors that is more visible when you see the actual work.

Little Children should be seen and not heard

Media: acrylic on wood panel
Dimensions: 14.5 x 14.5
Date of Work: 2008

This piece started from a creepy Victorian post card. I later made that into a photoshop collage, they they so amused me I couldn't resist painting them.

This painting will be sold at a charity auction for the new play "FIRST HAND WOMAN" by Sarah Michelle Brown

FIRST HAND WOMAN is an award-winning new stage play set within a woman’s heart and mind. This is a powerful journey through heartache and healing, as told by the boisterous and unapologetic stages of grief. Join Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Depression and Acceptance as they unravel the secrets and truths of a love story gone bad. As the play progresses, layers of this woman’s truth, and the realities of the relationship with her lover and with herself are poignantly and sometimes joyfully peeled away. Thus revealing someone who is seeking the redemption and reconciliation of her fragmented self. CAUTION: Show contains spontaneous simulated Orgasms!

Pansy Garden painted by Madelaine Fedorowich

With all the snow falling (and on the ground) I decided to paint something to remind me of warmer times... something spring-ish. I also do have to admit that pansys are my favourite flower and I think I have somewhat figured out how to paint them. For more paintings, visit my Etsy store or my blog.

Holiday Berries

With the holiday season right around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to paint at least one holiday themed painting this year. One can find these prickly holly plant all over Vancouver and their prickly leaves let you know if you've come a little too close. For more paintings, visit my blog or my Etsy store

Autumn Series 2008

This painting is mixed media and is #1 in my Autumn 2008 series.
It is created on 12"x 12" x 1.5" block gallery wrapped canvas (staple free sides) using acrylics,graphite and oil pastel.
Lightly glazed with a semi gloss professional artists varnish to protect and seal,the sides are fully painted so this piece is ready to hang without the need for a frame ( or of course can still be framed should you choose to do so!)
Check out my other listings for other original works in this series.

A very charming and peacefully elegant work,layered with lovely atmospheric shades-this would make a beautiful addition to your art collection!
