Daily life on the island of Tenerife, Spain. Busy, bustling and simply beautiful.
Painted by Ellen in acrylic on canvas. 20 x 24".
A painterly vision of an idyllic winter's day in Wisconsin. As the snow swirls, kids and puppy dogs play. The incredibly bright blue Door County sky transforms dancing snowflakes into shimmering, sparkling points of light. And in the background, snow-clad Horseshoe Island beckons the brave to snow-shoe to its shore. 8 x 10" acrylic on canvas. $300.
Despite the cloudy sky and snow-covered landscape, Ellen's winterscene is warm, festive and filled with glowing color.
12 x 16" acrylic on canvas.
