A Touch of Joy

SK12213 Step 1

Don’t want to hassle with huge crowds and messy weather??? Jack and I invite you to Christmas shop with us on eBay from the comfort of your own home. For those of you who have been asking for a piece that is a little larger than the 6″ x 6″ EMBRYOS I normally post on eBay here it is.

In Feng Shui Red is a fire element, the color of warmth, excitement and passion. Red is also traditionally associated with joy, good luck and fortune. So after painting the soft adobe walls I start work on the Red Door! Let’s bring all those good things to this piece.

I think these wrought iron hinges and door latch are so cool. We photographed them years ago in Santa Fe.

AND….. make sure to check out the heart made by the two little doves on the wall tile!

Trumpet Vine cascades down, draping the wall with rich color. The ceramic container is now painted with mixtures of Pthalo Turquoise Blue + a tiny touch of Viridian Green + White.

I choose to plant Sunflowers in the container because they look so vibrant next to the red door. Besides they make a really nice combination with the azure pot. The long, strap-like foliage of the Daylilies has been painted. In this step I come back and carefully “Lay” the thick brushwork of the blossoms on top of the leaves. I don’t want to pick up any of the green on my brush, it would muddy the flower color.

If you’ve followed my work very long you know I absolutely love Red Doors. A Red Door makes such a happy and welcoming entrance. Add bunches of flowers and the setting becomes touched with joy. Christmas is right around the corner. Here’s your opportunity to bring A Touch of Joy into your life or that of someone you love.

This EMBRYO measures 10″ x 10″, it’s larger than the ones I usually do for eBay. You don’t have to worry about framing A Touch of Joy. It’s painted on a cradled panel with finished sides, ready to hang on your wall.

An original oil painting this size normally retails in our galleries for $490. To make it more FUN we are starting the bid at 1 Cent. That’s right, ONLY A PENNY. But don’t linger, the auction ends Sunday Evening December 8, at 8 PM Texas (Central) Time.
