Backyard Roses by artist Pat Meyer

9 x 12 Oil on Linen

Fall is coming and the roses bushes are giving me the last of the roses.  We have enjoyed these little gems not only from their beauty and from their fragrance. Thank you God for providing roses.

Italian Architecture, Mixed Media Fine Art Painting, "IF WALLS COULD TALK- CORTONA" by International Abstract Artist Kimberly Conrad

The "Walls of Italy" is a brand new series inspired by photos I took of the walls and architecture on my recent trip to Italy, more specifically in the town of  Cortona. This painting also represents the oldest part of town where the outer walls of the buildings were dilapidated- and many years/layers were exposed. These buildings were all occupied, and our guide assured us that the insides had been beautifully renovated, and decorated. 

This is the third piece in the series. View the first two HERE

30"x19"x1.5" Mixed Media on Canvas

The last light of the evening - burning brightly against the darkening sky.   It all resembles hot embers still glowing in a dying fire.  What a beautiful artistic display of light, lighting the sky and horizon with one last blaze.
For me, it is a final gift for the evening - the Creator Artist sends His benediction of beauty with the promise of new light in the new day.

like a hummingbird...returning
to its favorite flower.”
