Painting Inspired by Niki de Saint Phalle Art

Big Girl Wings

A number of years ago I discovered the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-Swiss painter and sculptor. She created some colorful, full figured sculptures which I love! Here’s an example: I had created a few drawings in my sketchbooks over the years inspired by her work. Then recently I did this painting and I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Niki’s art and my other painting titled She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put Up with the Rain.…

Spirit Bear Painting

This colorful acrylic painting is titled “Fly Me Over the Moon So I May touch the Sun.” Or you can call it “Fly Me Over The Moon” for short. It is 14″ x 14″, acrylic on wood panel, $525. I’m pretty sure this painting is about desiring more sunshine in my life. And following my inner “owl” wisdom. It’s been quite a change living in Maple Falls, Washington where we get 67 inches of rain per year. The US average…

Mermaid Painting “She Carried the Light”

Mermaid painting

I will admit it. I’m a weanie when it comes to swimming in big waves at the ocean so I don’t go in very deep when I see waves crashing. Since I’m not a mermaid, I decided at least I could paint one. “She Carried the Light”, acrylic on paper, 9″ x 9″ So here she is carrying the light through the depths of the deep blue sea. There are prints for sale in my Etsy Shop.
