Now at the Northville Art House

I'm just back home from the Northville Art House where I dropped off these three paintings for their gift shop. While there I rummaged through their huge used art book sale. Each book for just $1! You can't go wrong for a buck.

Touch of Rouge, oil on cradled panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5 inches

Patrice Erickson, Touch of Rouge, oil on cradled panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5 inches

This new painting features my favorite go-to oil paint color -- Winsor & Newton Bright Red! It's a remarkable transparent color to glaze with. It can totally transform the mood of any painting. Many other colors do that too, but this is my personal number one.

Patrice Erickson, Winter Thaw, oil on cradled panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5 inches

Patrice Erickson, Almost There, oil on cradled panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5 inches

I finished this new painting yesterday. I really like how the small amount of vivid hues pop amongst the grays.

Patrice Erickson, Yellow Streak, oil on cradled panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5 inches

Patrice Erickson, YELLOW GREEN IN BETWEEN, oil on cradled panel, 18 x 24 x 1.5 inches
