Beach Painting

beach plein air sunset beach cape may point

I had a few hours between jobs and wanted to paint but it was 80 degrees and sunny.

My wacky schedule has me juggling paint and down time. I’ve been dipping my toes into plein air situations, despite being fussy about painting scenarios. These recent open air paintings on paper have very little to do with what I’m doing – aside from opening potential to strike up conversations about purchasing work or raffle tickets.

To me, this plein air thing is more of a skill-building exercise than anything else. I don’t typically do these types of beachscapes, nor do I prefer to work quickly, or in public. I don’t like talking while painting. Heck, I don’t even like listening to music with lyrics at my easel.

Seashell Painting Raffle

fundraiser for VoiceLove

Tickets are only $10 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the VoiceLove Project.

In mid-July, I read an article about this heart-melting project. It was within a day or two of finishing this oil painting. VoiceLove puts the voice of loved ones into ICU rooms, even when visitors are not allowed. When you pick up a seashell, you can hear the ocean.  It kind of felt poetic.

The doctors behind VoiceLove Project are getting Relay speakers into ICU rooms, allowing critically ill patients to hear the voice of their loved ones… sharing hope, love, words of encouragement. All the things someone fighting for their life needs to hear. They provide a direct line of communication between families and patients. These devices don’t require nurses to facilitate the conversations.

Incredibly compassionate people using their brilliance for good… that’s what superhero movies are made of.

  • Details:

Tickets $10, available online, in person, over the phone, text, inbox, venmo… etc.
Drawing is Friday, September 4, 2020 at 8:30 pm, and will be broadcast live on Instagram at @jodeeclifford.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions. Also, don’t hesitate to share. It’s a great cause.

Cape May Milky Way

Oil on wood, 23×60″

The original oil painting on wood in a handmade frame is still available, though as of this post, it is not yet listed in my new gallery shop. It is, however, listed on Fine Art America – where you can directly purchase giclees, canvas prints, acrylic prints, metal prints, and prints on wood. Also available as a variety of gift items ranging from t-shirts, cell phone cases, face masks, and beach towels.

The gallery shop is where you can find originals. Fine Art America is where you can find my prints, and other items. I’m working hard to get as many available pieces photographed, described, and listed as quickly as possible. Some days require studio time. That’s where virtual studio tours and Venmo come in. Or Cashapp too. If you don’t already have an account, please use my code LLHMBKR when you sign up. We’ll both get $5.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or to schedule a virtual studio tour.

Saltwater Veins III

Sell Art Online

This is the largest pastel painting I’ve done to date. It’s four feet high by ten feet wide on paper, completed in the spring of 2020.

It’s part of a shore surrealism series I’ve been contemplating since 2017. I’m only sure of the date because in my massive organization project, I recently flipped through an old to do list in an appointment book before shredding it. “Start working on Shore Surrealism paintings.”

I take my to-do lists very seriously. Occasionally with creative matters, I rewrite items 900 times before the stars align and the spirit moves me into action. It’s just part of my process.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or to schedule a virtual studio tour.

Saltwater Veins I

Photography Prints

This is another oil painting recently added to Fine Art America. I finished it earlier this year.

It’s part of a shore surrealism series I’ve been thinking about since 2017. This year brought an unbelievable reality scene set for making a series of surreal paintings. It’s somewhat large at 48×60″.

The original is still available, though as of this post, it is not yet listed in my new gallery shop.

Recently added to Fine Art America, I finished this oil painting earlier this year.

It’s one of a shore surrealism series I’ve been thinking about since 2017. I only know the date because I recently flipped through an old appointment book before shredding it.

Back to the painting, 2020 brought the scenario and I got started on these things. It’s somewhat large at 48×60. The original is still available. Now prints are, too.
