"Always with You," original acrylic painting by Nancy Laliberte

"Always with You"
© Nancy Laliberte
6" x 6" acrylic on panel
$150, framed
click here for view/purchase information


I loved the challenge of capturing the vibrant and subtle shifts of pink in the flowers, the blues in the jar, and then having it all come together with a neutral, yet colorful background. While painting this piece, I found myself thinking of my breast cancer "sisters" out there, and families who have been affected by cancer. There is a lot of love and prayer mixed in the paint on this one.  

Elegantly framed in a 3" black plein-air style frame, and available at the Alexander House Center for Art & History, Port Edwards, WI.

In my world:  Zinnias + Hydrangeas = Summer Sisters. Colorful and belonging together enjoying the sunshine, warm breezes, and secrets shared in the garden of life. 

I love how these look together! All are on gallery-wrapped canvas with the painting continuing around the sides, wired and ready for hanging. You can find them on my website.

Friday (11/20), my show opens at the Alexander House Center for Art & History. I delivered my paintings this week. I am excited to see them installed with artist Joe Clark's beautiful ceramic pieces. The opening reception is from 5 - 8 pm. I'd love to see you there.

Thankful for:
My 2001 Ford Windstar van (reliable art delivery mobile ;-) )
My very supportive family and friends
You, my dear blog reader

I'm just going to say that I love painting these floral bouquets! Colorful zinnias from my mother's garden, paired with blue hydrangeas from my own garden welcome warmth, grace, and memories of a sun-filled, carefree summer. I love the combination of grayed down and bright colors in this piece.


This is on gallery-wrapped canvas; the sides are painted in a warm gray, and it is wired and ready for hanging.

This piece is a part of my upcoming show at the Alexander House in Port Edwards, WI. The exhibit opens this Friday, November 20th, with a reception from 5 - 8 pm. Also featured will be ceramic artist, Joe Clark, from Port Edwards, WI. The show runs through January 5th, 2016.

"Blues 'n Jazz" original oil painting by artist Nancy Laliberte

"Blues 'n Jazz"

10" x 8" oil on gallery-wrapped canvas
$225
click here for more information

This piece is a part of my upcoming show at the Alexander House in Port Edwards, WI. The show opens next Friday, November 20th, with a reception from 5 - 8 pm. I am thrilled to be sharing the gallery space with ceramic artist Joe Clark from Port Edwards. 

A work-in-progress shot – I often begin with a transparent under painting and then build upon that with opaque paint mixtures. There is a lot of stepping back, thinking twice, and painting once. And then some scraping and trying it again. ;-)
