Commissioned


Here are two pieces that I have recently commissioned. Both buyers liked a certain style that I had already created but wanted different canvas sizes and colors.

Connection

I recently made this piece for our bedroom. It looks great and adds a lot of color!

In the Home!


I sold "Birds of a Feather" at the July artstroll and the gentleman who bought it was nice enough to send me a picture of what it looks like in their home! It looks great framed.

Epitomy



I LOVE this piece! My friends Devin and Caryn had hung the piece I did for them ("Bubba Gump", check earlier post) in their bedroom and their friend Stephanie saw it. However, she wanted something with earthy tones and shapes. We decided together and it would be 9 different wood blocks, each 12x12, instead of on canvas (I love painting on wood). Anyway, this is what I came up with.

If you are ever interested in Epitomy or a commissioned piece, please email me at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com. All she told me was her colors and style.

Jibe - Blue



I know this isn't the best picture of "Jibe - blue" but the batteries in my camera were about to die and I wanted to get a quick pic before the art stroll tonight. I made this piece for tonight and I hope it sells. Acrylic paint was used on stretched canvas in lime green, burnt yellow, baby blue, black, cream, and brown.

Please email me at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com if you are interested in this piece, I can always re-create!

Flock Together



"Flock Together" is the second bird piece I did after "Birds of a Feather." They weren't intended to go together, although they could if you wanted. Before any paint was put on I textured it like crazy! After the texture dried, I used acrylic paint in teal, brown, crimson, and cream on stretched canvas.

Please keep in mind that I can (and have) recreated a number of my pieces to fit a certain canvas size. If you love this texture comment or email me at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com

Birds of a Feather




I was inspired to do this piece, and other pieces similar to it, after a trip to Roly Poly in Birmingham. Roly Poly is a sandwich shop (most unique sandwiches you will ever have) and features local artists. I saw a piece there that was very dark and reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven." I decided to create a bird piece but with more earthy colors!

A variety of textures were added first to this painting and then acrylic paint was used in teal, dark and light brown, cream, and crimson on stretched canvas.

If you are interested in "Birds of Feather" please email me at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com or write a comment.

Jibe - Crimson




I love this piece! There is just something whimsical and relaxing about it. I actually love this piece so much that after I painted it I decided to decorate my living room around the lime green and crimson red colors. I will have to post a picture of my living room soon.

The colors used were crimson red, lime green, burnt yellow, cream, baby blue, black and brown. All the paint is acrylic and it is on stretched canvas. Sizes vary and can be customized to fit your needs if so desired. If you too are dying for crimson and lime green please write a comment or send me an email at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com.

Bubba Gump



I made this piece for my friends Devin and Caryn. I named it "Bubba Gump" due to the many funny nights Dev and I had watching Forest Gump. When he asked me to paint him something blue and abstract, this is what he got! The vintage sheet music was put on first and incorporates both of our love of music. Acrylic paint in blue, white, cream, yellow/green were used on stretched canvas. Please remember that all colors can be changed according to your desire.

If you too love "Bubba Gump" and want more information on purchasing it just write a comment or send me an email at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com.

Wood Art - Square Blocks



I have done a variety of these wood blocks but finally decided I should take a picture and post them. Each block measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 3/4" and have been sanded, primed and painted. Each piece has been given an antique looke and due to the uniqueness of wood, non are the exact same!
If interested, please email me at art.mariesoleil@gmail.com. Please note that colors can be changed according to your desire.
