Sunrises Sunsets Moonlight


Finally was able to finish this huge canvas, and get the values right on the focal points of the Springbok. They were too light in the earlier posting, and I had more work to do on the foreground. I hope you like it! It is on display through November 18, 2007, at the Colony Theater in Burbank, along with the other large paintings in the African Moments series.
This is the second painting started in my before-dawn painting session at Grapevine Canyon Ranch. After doing the dawn piece looking east, I spun the easel around and painted the clouds coming up over the Dragoon Mountains behind the ranch. I'm quite pleased with the design of this one, as it seems to hold one's eyes for a long time, enjoying the many vagaries of the edges of the clouds. I'd like to be there again, enjoying the morning light! This little gem is for sale for $100 as an item in my new ebay store.
"Virgas" I have been told that when rain falls out of a cloud and doesn't reach the ground, that phenomenum is called a virga. Last night we had a bunch of them as the thunder and lightning moved away, and the evening light showed through the storm clouds in a glory of sunset glow that was changing as fast as I could paint it. This is the second canvas of the "Sitting Outside in the chair at the Opening" paint session while it was so hot. It is a 7 x 5 inch oil, and I feel it realy captures that light in the sky at this time of day. $100

"Earth Day Light" What better for Earth Day than a celebration of light uplifting the soul on a glorious morning? this is a 5 x 7, and came off my acrlyic palette for several reasons: 1) I'm an optimist and know things are going to be OK, 2) it is wonderful to be alive and enjoy such sunrises, regardless of not sleeping great, and 3) I'm looking forward to another commission (Fritz) and a major show next weekend. So life is good, and you and I can bask in the sunbeams. Original acrylic on canvas, 7 x 5 inches.

Sold to Collector J. L. Sanchez of Washington, D.C.

"Winter Feed" This painting is the first draft of the third in the series of the four seasons with draft horses.  In the low evening light, these ranchers are using the big horses to haul hay to their stock.  Accepted into the prestigious 101st Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club Show in Gramercy Park, NY. Also has been shown at the American Academy of Equine Art's Fall Showcase in Lexington, KY.  Original acrylic on prepared panel, 18 x 24 inches.US$ 575 Purchase with your credit card or email Elin about this work.

"Anybody's Point" This 12 x 9 acrylic is done with wondrous texture and richness of complimentary colors in blues and oranges. The lighting is generic, so I call this one "anybody's" because I know I've seen countless views through pines on the edges of many lakes in my life. This could be your lake, or one of mine, or... anybody's.

African Moments: Giraffes This gorgeous painting is HUGE, measuring five feet tall and four feet wide. The image does not due justice to the intense colors in this original oil, and I have it in my studio where it glows when the light from the window falls on it.

"Moonlight Mood" As an example of how value is such an important part of the design of good paintings, Elin painted this mid-range and dark valued painting for the purpose of instruction. This 9 x 12 oil painting is SOLD.
"Moonlight Pause" This is the painting that was done for Elin's fourth DVD/video and first on color "Colorful Oil Painting 1" and is a wonderful example of how Elin uses color to depict a moonlight scene. Original oil on canvas, 16 x 20 inches. US $ 900 Available from the artist.
