#200- "BEST BY JULY 16"



  

BID NOW



An artist friend asked me:" how do you decide what to paint?" Well, when I find myself in a pickle for subject matter, I just get my "funny" on. There's an unending supply of "stuff" in one's surroundings and always more beauty to be discovered. I just honed in on the floating green shapes in the pantry and Voila!: Subject matter at hand!
Up for auction on ebay now. 

More pickle paintings to come...
Enjoy, Eileen

#199_ "MARTICE THE MODEL"

Never before have I been the model's focal point as in this situation. (As the artist, I'm accustomed to being the starer,  not the dot on the wall . ;) This model's complexion contained some beautiful skin tones. It was a pleasure to paint her portrait! Thank you , Martice!

#198- "Meadowlark on post"- Original Acrylic on Canvas


"Meadowlark on Post"-48"X24"- Acrylic on Canvas-©eileenmccoy.com
 
 This large painting is a commission work for a client. She's giving it as a gift to a friend whose father nailed old boots to fence posts for bird houses. I felt the composition needed the bird as a primary focal point beyond the ambiguous shoe. It was delightful to work with this semi-monochromatic palette.

 Enjoy, Eileen
