Rough Cloud

Rough Cloud
10x10 Oil on prepared paper
deeply matted with a contemporary maple frame
 auction: starting bid $250

It is with an unsure heart I put this up for auction because it is my favorite of the plein aire series. Strong brushwork in a dramatic sky make it a keeper. This piece is a plein aire painting done in Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine.

"Silver Lining #2"


"Silver Lining"
24x30
Contemporary maple frame
$740

I did this piece in a small size on site and then re-did it in the studio. I love this version, in fact it may be my favorite from the whole series. Though that is really hard to call! But this piece is unique in its coloring, and the feeling that comes through is of a magical silvery grey day. And it is still available....one of the few larger ones left. The teeny tiny person and boat give you the sense of majestic scale.

Moon and Sail

"Moon and Sail"
10x10
The natural edge of the paper floats in a deep mat and is framed under glass, 
surrounded by a contemporary maple frame to a finished size of 17x17.

$360

This is an extremely delicate piece; just a few brush strokes tell the story of the water and the sky. I loved the moon and I can't remember if it was rising or setting, but it made a great counterpoint for the sail. This photo does not do it justice, and I apologize for that. The color is more like that in the piece below, which has the same soft mood. It is a wonderful companion piece to "Wisps Over Flats" and if anyone wants to buy them as a set, I will take $100 off, with the set as $400. They really like each other and don't want to be separated. Just e-mail me: lynne@lynneschulte.com.

When the tide recedes and leaves these undulating rivulets in the sand, sometimes they seem like they can go on forever. In this case, the clear spot in the sky pulled you even further beyond.

"Feathery Sky"

"Feathery Sky"
10x10 Oil on Prepared Paper
Matted in an extra deep mat and framed under glass 
with a contemporary maple frame

$360


This painting is one of those get up early and paint the sunrise mornings. It is amazing what clouds do. They change so much in a second! By the time you get to the top, the bottom has changed, and vice versa. But, if you capture it accurately in real time, it will all go together.

floating in a wide, deep archival mat
Framed under glass with a maple contemporary frame
$360

This soft and beautiful piece was painted from the glassed in front porch of a cottage on Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine.  I just loved the flats when the tide ebbed and made unpredictible ripples in the sand, exposing treasures underneath. The ledges you see in the painting would dissapear almost entirely at high tide. The cloud patterns that morning were a perfect couterpoint to the sand shapes. What would you say? Is this a skyscape or a sea scape?

Blue Skies







Blue Skies

Oil on panel 8x8"
Genre: Skyscape
Contemporary Light Wood Frame
$195




I thought it would be nice to show something besides flowers. This piece is the first one from my "Coastal Sunrise" series which I showed in May at the Marblehead Art Association It is a small studio painting created after a wonderful painting week at Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine. All in this series are framed.

I still can't see the title of this piece without smiling, because it was the title of the song sung by the school department all-city chorus in Waltham, MA during my first year there as an arts administrator. Oh, the whole stage full of kids singing just took my breath away.

"Coral Anemone"





"Coral Anemone"

108 in the series "A Year in Bloom"
Oil on prepared paper 6x8"
Genre: Floral
art only, no mat/frame


I just love anemones when it comes to painting......They are dramatic with that black center, have a great structure of interesting petals going every which way, and cool curly leaves. I painted thm frequently when I was doing the series "A Year in Bloom" This one is one of my favorites and is from the classic Pink Ribbon Collection of cards, the first set created. 


"A Year in Bloom" was a floral series that I did while I lived in Vermont. I created 365 paintings of flowers, with about 85% of them oils and the rest watercolor. The images were used to create series of cards and you can see them on line. This piece is part of the pink ribbon set, a set with a great sense of spring coming in.  See the pink ribbon collection by clicking here. Single cards are also available; see them hereEach card has an individually hand-glued mini print of a floral from the series. Any image in one of the sets is available as a single, even if it is not yet on the store site; just e-mail me.lynne@lynneschulte.com You can read more about the series including my journal from that year, by clicking here.

If you haven't been to the National Historical Site of sculptor Auguste St Gaudens, you are missing something special. Beautiful grounds and gardens, Sunday concerts and the famous artist's sculpture studio has a fabulous pergola with this Pompian red wall that had tons of hollyhocks against it. I particularly liked the way these white ones showed up.

I will always remember those fairy roses because someone brought them to us as a wedding gift, and they stood on either side of the "aisle" we walked down on across the grass by our pond, to get to the minister. Later I planted them in the garden and I loved the lack of maintenance. Good thing too, as they are very prickery! I liked the leaves too; I haven't grown nicotania (flowering tobacco) since, but it is a plant with PRESENCE. Big leaves and white flowers that reach for the sky.

"Red Gladiolius Tips"
Oil on prepared paper 6x8"
Genre: Floral

$110


The gladiolus is a very difficult flower to use in the garden. They just have an awkward spike quality, smaller below and heavier above. But OH, when you pick them! I put them in a tall glass vase and they are spectacular! They also go on forever, fading away at the bottom and opening at the top. These were in their last hurrah, and just the tips had been cut off the spent stem, and they were still delighting us.

Two Classics

I decided to post two classic pieces that remain popular as decorative prints and in the card collections and singles. It's nice to visit old friends!

First Poppy and Sage

"First Poppy and Sage"
Oil on prepared paper 8x6"
Genre: Floral

Sold

Furst Poppy and Sage was one of the first pieces sold when the show was up and remains popular. This was not only the first poppy of the season, but the first one I remember growing! The sage is just a lovely accent to it.


"Asters by the Rainy Pond"

"Asters by the Rainy Pond"
Oil on prepared paper 8x6"
Genre: Floral

Ah, the memories. I painted this while it was raining by our little pond in Vermont. I was roaring along in my series and wanted to paint in spite of the weather. So I set up my easel and a great big beach umbrella and finished this one. Everyone loves it; You can feel the drops in the water and see the reflections of the trees across the way.
