'Under the See' ~ I just finished this painting and it's acrylics on a 8 x 10 inch stretched canvas.

'Birth of a Sunrise' ~ Another painting in acrylics on a smaller 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas. I posted this in the WetCanvas challenge for February that JiMi had a wonderful theme for this month. Congratulations to both Jerald and his wife on the birth of their new baby boy!

Full Moon at Sunset ~ The moon has been so bright and full this week and the yard at night is just lit up by the glow...I grabbed my camera to try and capture this beauty right as the sun was setting.
A very talented artist friend, Terri West from the Visual Fields blog, just presented me with an 'I Love Your Art Blog' Award...Thank you so much Terri and I love the look of your new website and blogs! I'm supposed to name 7 things I love and I'm going to think about them and name them in my next post. :p ...then pick 7 more people to pass this cool award on to!

Under the See really has a lot of depth --- imagine even more so seeing it in person.

Lynette said...

Thank you so much Terri and I really like the look of your new website and blogs...Thanks so much for the award too! I'll update my blog with your new link.

Heey Corinne, wow thanks so much for the nice words. I'm fine, just seem to have 'fullmoonitis' this week hehe!

Thanks Janet, I really got into painting that one...I just knew it was going to be an underwater theme although I didn't plan on that when I started it.

I was just going to remark that the first painting looked like it was under water, until I saw the title... ;)

The moon has been incredibly beautiful lately, hasn't it?

OMIGOSH Lynnie,,,,I sure wish I'd painted "Under The Sea"!!
That moon does only good things for YOUR muse!

Of course I loved the sunrise painting when I saw it in the forum, and that's a super shot ya got with your camera!
Now,,,,go paint some more underwater stuff,,,,,that's INCREDIBLE!

Oh Lynn, I just love "Under the Sea"!!! How much is it? Is it for sale? I would love to have it. Email me and we'll talk.

Love your birth of the sun picture, too. From your photo, I can see how you get your inspiration.

Lynette said...

HI Cyn and thanks for the nice words...yep, the moon has been so bright and big!
Hehe Babs I think you're right, that big moon seems to be my muse sometimes and I had lots of fun painting this one! Thanks!
katie jane, woooo thanks so much and I'll e-mail you. I just really finished it today and put the gloss finish on it. OK, I need to do some more 'under the see (or sea) paintings!

Lynette! You have sure been busy! I love all of these a lot...they are so Lynette! You know what I love the most about "Under the Sea"? I love the way you have been able to capture the movement so well. I honestly stared at it thinking...that is swimming right towards me!

Truly lovely work, my friend!

Have a Great Valentines Weekend!

"Under the See" Clever name for a fantastical painting.

"Birth of a Sunrise" Gathering energy to brighten up the darkness.

Lynette said...

Hi Michelle and thank so much, I'm going to pop over and visit Kim too.
Kim, thanks so much and I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day too. We went out to eat, was fun and yummy!
Ha, Chewy I went and titled that one Under the See instead, I think it looked kind of like a typo lol. Thanks for the nice words!

Michelle said...

Hi lynette

I cant see a followers thingy on your side bar so I am going to put you on my blog roll. Hope thats ok.


San said...

Your undersea world is absolutely mystical! Then again, so are your tree worlds, and that sunrise being born.

Congratulations on your award, Lynette. Although I'm not familiar with that blogger, I know she has good taste.

W. J. St. Christopher said...

Gosh, Lynette -- so many beautiful photos and paintings since I was last here! You must be in some crazy, creative state of pre-Spring frenzy! All the paintings are so colorful and gorgeous -- I'm inspired!

Congrats on the well-deserved award, and thanks for checking in on me over at Art166!

Hope you're doing something incredible with your weekend!

Sadia Hussain said...

Your "Under The Sea" is gorgeous!
Mystical and full of magic!

José said...


The transparency of your painting is well achieved.
I quite like its glowing aspect.

Take care,


Lynette said...

Hi Michelle, I am just learning how to do the blog following gadget and I can try and see if I can put one in my sidebar, thanks.

Hi there San and thanks so much! Yes, Terri is a wonderful artist and has some new blogs/website too.

Ha, thank you Wendy! Lately it's been more like the late winter blahs for me but I was in the creative zone with my muse when I painted that one.

Hi Sadia and thank you so much for the kind words and for visiting my blog. I will go and visit yours too.

Heyy Jose thank you so much, I had lots of fun painting this one!

tlwest said...

hey have you got Under the Sea up for sale ???

Lynette said...

Hi Terri, wow thank you for asking but I sold 'Under the Sea' right here in my blog and that painting is already in her new home. I am definitely going to try and do more like that one though! Ha, that's easier said than done but I'm working on it. :o Thanks Terri!
