T-Shirt Update

Just finished a major update to my arty-tees page. I’ve added new tshirts and hoodies as well as adding more color selections for some tshirts. There are two links for some tshirts  because amazon only lets me pick 5 colors per tshirt or product, so I just made another listing with more color choices. Also, some good news, the price on the hoodies dropped, thanks to amazon.

These are the paintings now available on tshirts and a couple of hoodies:

Tuesday again

Last Tuesday was especially fun. My group painted at the Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation in Palm City, FL. We had painted there before and will paint there again.  So, I decided to paint one of the mini horses. It turns out he is an ambassador for ERAF and that’s understandable. Using pastels on Ampersand Pastelbord, I captured his sweetness and also have published the image on Amazon as one of my arty-tees – both a tshirt and a hoodie.

Here is the link to the tshirt:

Tuesday Paintings – Pastels!

It’s been a long time since the last post because I tend to get behind on the photography end of things. If the paintings are small enough they are scanned.

It seems that the pastels have been neglected lately, so after thinking about it, the issue was with the bulkiness. So going back to another post where I had evaluated the colors used in a plein air painting by John Pierce Barnes [https://doreenelepore.com/2012/06/02/john-pierce-barnes/]  I decided to expand on that selection of pastels yet keep it within this cigar box. The box is about 8″x10″x2″ deep. It’s lined with some foam that was laying around and there is another piece that lays on top to minimize the jiggling.

Here is the palette that seems to be working for me.

This is working out great for plein air because it’s much lighter to carry and an added bonus is that I don’t get mesmerized by too many colors to look through for the exact right stick. I’ve been using my old half julien easel that holds a few supplies like a travel watercolor box and some brushes.

Here are the paintings that are done with this palette.

Pastel Demo and more Tuesday Paintings

Recently I was asked to do a demonstration of my method of painting with watercolor and pastels at a local art club. It was a fun morning and well received. Here is the painting I did for them that I started with a watercolor underpainting.

Prints

Recently I discovered a website that allows artists to upload their work and make it available for the public to buy as prints. They will even frame it! They will do giclee prints on stretched canvas as well as paper prints and there are a number of good quality papers to choose from. The frame selection seems limited, but it could be that I haven’t seen all they have yet.

My page has three galleries – Landscape, Still life and Animals. If you click on the gallery link on the right you will be able to go there and see what I have so far. If there is anything anyone would like made available, just let me know either in the comments or via email and I’ll see if it’s something that can be done.

If you are interested in making your own gallery there, it wasn’t hard to do [and it’s free], but do recommend that you get your images ready – they need to be higher resolution than 800×800.

“A Trip Down the Loxahatchee”

“A Trip Down the Loxahatchee” by Jim Snyder will debut on Nov. 21 when the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum holds the “Lighthouse River Rendezvous.” The annual fund raiser will unfold along the river, at the foot of the museum, on  Saturday evening starting at 6:00 pmhttp://www.jupiterlighthouse.org/jupiter-events-november.php

This coffee table book is made up of paintings and photographs by local artist of the Loxahatchee River and will be for sale in local gift shops.  Some time ago Jim asked me if he could include this painting in the book and of course I said yes.  It’s a small pastel painting that I did on location.
