Sailing in Balboa Harbor, 20" x 20", Oil on Canvas (Out on Consignment)

Sailing in Balboa Harbor, 20" x 20", Oil on canvas. This painting was inspired by a fun day in Balboa Island with a very good friend of mine. We drove down on a great weather day, having lunch at Ciao's, a favorite Italian lunch spot. From there we walked to our favorite shopping haunts before taking the ferry to the mainland and home. While on the ferry I snapped some great photo shots for future paintings. I could feel my hair gently blowing from the strength of the ferry engines below us. What a perfect day this was. The painting price is $450 and if you have any questions or comments please email me at Thank you. Ellie

Gerbera Daisies, 24" x 24", Oil on gallery canvas (Available)

Gerbera Daisies. 24" x 24", Oil on gallery canvas. This was an artistic stretch for me and I found it a most rewarding studio painting. The composition has a cosmopolitan feel to it because of the dimension and positioning of the daisies. Although gallery canvas is used for traditional settings as well, this only adds to the versatility when thinking contemporary. Right now I have it hanging and drying over the fireplace in my Cape Cod style home and it fits in very well. The colors are inviting and warm, against the cool/warm push-pull effect of the foliage. The price is $1,400. If interested or have questions about it, please contact me at Thank you and please come back often, Eleanor (Ellie)
