August Perseids - Meteor Shower

One of the best meteor showers for people to watch. Usually starting near the end of July and lasting until sometime after the middle of August. On a clear night you can see many many meteors falling in the night sky. Here are two paintings on my take of the event. Both are aceo's (2.5" x 3.5") and are acrylics. You will find them listed on Ebay here or do a search under my name: Southshoreartist

Water Lily Lotus Paintings

I don't think there is anything more peaceful than Water Lilies. They are even calming to paint. There is such a quiet gentleness about them. Anyway, I painted these today. They are set to go on Ebay July 22. Seach "southshoreartist" on Ebay.

Whale paintings

I haven't listed anything on here for a few days, so I thought I would add something. I'm still on my whale kick. And as always (or mostly always) night paintings. These go on Ebay on July 22. Seach "southshoreartist" on Ebay to find them.

Killer Whales - aceo

Moonlight Swim. A quick aceo put up for auction tongiht. Done with acrylics. We saw a pod of whales when we were at Vancouver Island. We crossing on the ferry and saw them just by chance. It was a wonderful experience. We saw whales again this winter in Mexico. Not in pods, but alone. All you had to do was watch for the blow. Then all of a sudden a whale would appear. We spend hours watching for them. We never had a day go by that we didn't see some. You will find my listing here on Ebay

EBSQart FOTM - bougainvillea

This month the Flower of the month is Bougainvillea. Not ever having seen it live, I had to do a littls research and discovered that the magenta or purple parts are not even the flowers. The flowers are little white things. The purple flowers are all an illusion. I decided the whole idea of illusion must be perfect for fairies to hide in then. Here is my entry in the July show.
