Angel with Cardinals original art in textured oils by Sandra Cutrer

Image
I am on a roll with angel paintings. They are selling quickly. I think people feel love and comfort from seeing angels in paintings. At least, it reminds me that I have loved ones that I will see one day- hopefully in the near future! 

I painted this one with brilliant red cardinals. There is a saying that when a cardinal comes to visit you, it is the soul of someone you miss saying they have come to say hello, and they love you!


Original top-quality oils with added texture on an 8" x 10" flat canvas panel, ready for your favorite frame! This would make a great gift for someone who has lost a loved one, or an angel collector you might care to surprise!

MaLee has the idea that we should take a lovely Caribbean trip, and "chill" for a week or two on a beautiful beach, breezes blowing, sipping on an ice cold  drink.... chasing a few seagulls.... I don't have the heart to tell her we can't be shipped in a box....

Angel in the Garden

Painted in oils with added texture to add depth and interest. I have a few angels of my own in Heaven, waiting on me! Are you aware that God sends us all guardian angels (as in plural). It's a good thing because I've needed mine on many occasions!!!

Still Life Oil Painting of flowers in an old blue Mason Jar, Ceramic bird, by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
https://www.etsy.com/listing/523590190/bird-flowers-still-life-mason-jar?ref=shop_home_active_2

My husband and I enjoy "antique"shopping. Of course, at our age, we tend to look at most things not being antiques, but more like "vintage" items... We don't usually buy much when we go (these folks need to come by my house and buy some things from me!), but I was able to find an old blue Mason jar, with the original metal lid, and milky glass insert, at a great price while we were in a small town in Northeast Texas. I added a bunch of Hydrangeas, as well as my adorable ceramic bird (green- my favorite color). The flowers have added texture. Please click on the link next to the photo, to go directly to my Etsy Shop in order to view a couple of close-ups of this painting.

I was curious about whether a Mason jar, and a Ball jar were the same.Thanks to Wikipedia, they were made by the same company. A neat fact!

Thanks for reading my blog.

Child's Play by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
I don't call myself a portrait painter, but there are times that I really enjoy painting children. I love seeing the mischief in their eyes, and the wheels of play turning over in their minds. It does my heart good to see them pretending, making up stories, enjoying a book, toy, or playing outside, verses wearing their thumbs out on an I-pad, or cellphone...







Wisdom of the Owl by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
Wisdom of the Owl

I found it interesting that not all cultures connect owls with wisdom.  For many African cultures, the owl is nothing but evil, while early European cultures viewed the owl as rather foolish!

It is noted that early Christian texts used the owl as a metaphor for Jesus, who appeared in the darkness of sin and showed humans the way to salvation.

Whatever people have concocted over the centuries, I think owls are gorgeous creatures, mysterious, regal, and powerful members of the bird species. I can't imagine a world without these big-eyed beauties! 





A fun fact about owls; a group of owls is called a parliament.



Although this painting is sold, I love taking custom orders. I also offer high quality prints on canvas. Please contact me through this blog, or from my Etsy Shop by clicking the link below:

God, Please forgive us, and bless America by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
God, Please forgive us, and bless America.

Okay, so we are still a VERY, VERY blessed country. But, doesn't it make you the least little bit sad that America isn't the same America you grew-up knowing? I mean, especially if you are in my baby-boomer age group.

I recall so vividly, as a small child,  about the only fear I had was of my mother calling me to come home, and my not hearing her because I was a little too far away on my bicycle. Or, of not having enough money from my younger brother and I returning cast-off empty soda bottles for candy money, and not having enough to buy two Hershey bars at once.

I remember one of the highlights of our lives, as a family, were going on summer vacations, and attending my brother's Little League baseball games, at our neighborhood ball park.

In my wildest dreams, nor ever would it have entered into my mind, that some crazed person, mad about politics, would enter an area around innocent people practicing for a fund-raiser ball game…

Dog Days by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
Mrs Wise-One  tells us, no one is never too old to learn, especially about something they have heard about for years, (as in MANY YEARS) but never quite "got it".

I was wondering what,"The Dog Days of Summer" really means, and how that idiom came about. So, I've googled it to see.


This is what I found:

The sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11. 2. a period marked by lethargy, inactivity, or indolence. Origin of dog days. Latin. I found that interesting. But, honestly, I'd rather be looking at some cute dogs, than dealing with high-heat, so take a look at one of my "dog days"... as in applying layers of oils on canvas, creating a commissioned painting of two adorable Yorkie's. One is very old, and in his prime, and the other is still a young, high energy ball of fun in a fur coat.







This is a commissioned painting, but…

The Month of June, Can I Get an Amen, or an Oh Me?

Image
We all know the month of June means spring has finished her work, everything is green,blooming at its fullest (if not finished for the year), weddings are taking place (June still ranks as having most weddings out of any month of the year)....

and then there is the heat.

Living in southeast Texas, we are already experiencing mid 90 degree days, with humidity making it feel like it is in the lower 100's... and the first day of summer hasn't made its grand entrance yet- at least not according to our calender's.

I'm not sure about you, but I'd rather be some place cool, relaxing on a heavily-shaded screened  porch, with a great breeze blowing through the screen. I can picture myself, holding a tall glass of iced tea, and catching a glimpse of a soft hammock,swaying in a cozy corner, calling my name...


I'm attaching one of my favorite paintings... maybe it will help us get through this hot day... thinking about the polar bears, skimming across the ice..

Animal Art Means So Much to Me!

Image
Since I am sort of in a bad situation lately (dealing with some inflamed back muscles) and most of my time (lately) seems to be spent in physical therapy, I thought I would post some of my favorite oil paintings of animals that I have done over time. Most of my animal work is very detailed. Some of the originals on this post have sold, while others are still available to purchase in my Etsy Shop, I do offer high quality prints on canva

Don't forget, I love taking custom orders! You can easily contact me from this blog, or from my Etsy Shop.


Please, enjoy,
Sandra Cutrer Fine Art
