Great Day today at the Main House Gallery at Muscoot Farm

Really enjoyed meeting lots of folks at Muscoot Farm today. This was the first weekend showing my new collection of flower paintings and went well.people responded positively to the new style and there were a lot of really nice people coming through. Here are some pictures from the show. 


White Roses- new Painting

This new painting will soon be available online in my Etsy shop – HillaryHostetlerArt
On Etsy I sell small affordable prints of paintings like this as well as the originals which are a bit more pricey, but also rich in texture and color. Small prints are really good to put under glass in frames with mats and group together with other similar prints. They make great wall arrangements. The originals are much larger and often don't need framing because the sides are painted and they're on the stretched canvas. This picture of white roses, for instance is 24" x 30". The sides are painted so you do not have to frame it if you prefer that look. 


A New Direction- "Abundance" 24"x36", acrylic and mixed media on canvas

I have taken a fresh direction in my painting. Remaining firmly grounded in nature, I am turning to flowers-heaping bouquets of abundant flowers. With a wink to the art historical Flemish  flower painters such as Jan Bruegel the Elder, I am combining flowers that bloom in different places and seasons into impossibly shaped towering bouquets. The paintings are modernized with mixed media techniques and materials, modern texture and pattern combinations, and whimsical bright colors. More to come soon.

Evening. New oil painting. Oil Paint on Canvas. Available to purchase at Ralph and Daves, Verplank,NY

Although this twilight sunset is so universal, this painting is from a photo and memory of walking along the Hudson River. It was humid and steamy weather that night, and the atmosphere glowed with reflected light.
