" My Patriotic Heart " acrylic painting 16x20 original


OOAK

one of a kind painting

" My Patriotic Heart "
by
C. Wright

11-29--09


16x20 inch acrylic painting on stretched canvas .

*****************
I really like this one !
A patriotic heart for the Americana , heart and/or patriotic collector .

An interesting background -- I actually mixed red , black over white -- turned out very nice sponge rolled dark dusty rose ? maybe ?
Red , blue heart with white stars and stripes.
The American patriot will love this in their room or Americana decor .


********************************

A gift of original art is one of the most special gifts you could offer someone .
My art is not perfect -- I don't think anything or anyone is perfect -- so my paintings will never be an exact painting -- you will see as you follow my art .

*****************
some of the colors -- blue , red , white , dark dusty rose ?
acrylic paint

I like to add interest to the paintings with texture !!

***********
I seem to be having too much fun with this painting hobby of mine !!
You never know what I will paint next !!

Why I like to paint ?

Why I like to paint ?

I just like to create -- and painting is a way to do that.
I have thought about my life and can look back over the years. I have a blast making something out of almost nothing . I remember making a fake fireplace on my wall one year for Christmas. It really looked good -- I look back on the pictures and say " Man I was good!".
I love to create  -- plain and simple -- but I don't like to do the same thing twice -- so -- I have fun with painting --originals and one of a kind -- I don't get bored that way !!
I tease my kids -- I will be a famous painter one day -- they laugh!
My game with pencil and paper is to see what you can make out of a pencil scribble -- I can do that easy -- and people are surprised because I see stuff in the scribbled line.
Well, that's my story -- and I'm sticking to it !!
Everyone that reads this -- please let me know with a comment. Tell me your story while you are at it.
Thanks,
Cathy

11 x 14  inch  acrylic painting on stretched canvas

 I just finished this -- paint still wet !!

*****************

I enjoyed painting this one, too !

Great painting for today's decor colors!!

I onlyhave one good picture -- the others were not true to color.

I tried to take many pictures but the color wasn't right -- so I will try again and when I get it right -- I will add to this description.

this is a simple flower -- in my own style -- for todays rich red , rust and yellow colors.

There is texture in this one, too , because I sponge rolled the background and made it very interesting with the pretty texture.

A fun painting for table top or wall -- hang as is .

This painting will work with country decor , southwestern decor and the rich red orange rust color decor  !! 

 *****************

some of the colors --  all shades of red , yellow  and a very interesting mix of both with a touch of black in the background color .

acrylic paint

I like to add interest to the paintings with texture !!

11 x 14 inch acrylic painting on stretched canvas

I just finished this -- paint still wet !!
*****************
I enjoyed painting this one, too !

What an interesting painting -- I surprised myself with this one !!

Christmas tree in the moonlight and snow is one of the most beautiful sights one may see.

I purposely put the top of the tree on the top side of the canvas -- why ? I have no idea -- just for fun and to make this painting more unique than the next .

There is texture in this one, too , because I sponge rolled the dark blue and made it very interesting with the pretty texture.

A fun painting for table top or wall -- hang as is .
