Beauty After Destruction Window Art Watercolor Painting For Sale

Beauty After Destruction Window Watercolor Art

This watercolor painting has a lot of personal meaning to me.  It is a reflection of part of my life journey after some quite devastating circumstances in my life.  It represents a simple beauty of hope starting to bloom, the beginnings of rebuilding.  The deep cracks and falling apart concrete of the walls represent the broken or destructive places, walls that are supposed to be, and seem to be, secure and strong. We find out, they aren’t.   This is a picture of the human experience called life.

Welcome to My Art Watercolor Paintings

Hello,

My name is Valerie Garner,  welcome to my watercolor painting blog.   I am a self-taught watercolor artist and this is an online gallery of my work, that is for sale.

I’ve always had a strong creative bent to who I was, even in childhood trying various projects and mediums.  I had a love of learning, of color and working with my hands since then.

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest area of the United States where the beauty of nature surrounds us and gives much inspiration.

Several years ago, I got serious into photography fine art prints in that medium.  Feel free to check out my artwork of that medium that is also for sale.  My work has been published and I had the privilege of having my photography represented at an art gallery in Seattle, called Warren Knapp Art Gallery.

Photography helped my artistic perspective grow and change.  It ignited even further, a desire to learn to paint with watercolor, something I had always wanted to do, but there was always a reason (so I thought), not to.

Finally, I dived in, reading, studying and practicing on everything I could get my hands on watercolor.  I was hooked!  I love the medium of watercolor, the fluidity it provides, a degree of unpredictability, the look of soft pastels or strong and bold looks.  I love the affect of adding several layers of different washes and textures, to see the moment when a painting “pops”.

In general my style is quite eclectic, although it is definitely in realism or realistic type style. I grew up in a small town so I have a love of rural life, doors and windows, garden or floral, and anything else that catches my eye at the moment.

Fine art prints can be ordered of my watercolor paintings through my link for each painting on this site.   The buyer chooses the size and quantity, and which medium they want it in.  The options are:  canvas prints, art prints, framed prints, acrylic prints, metal prints or greeting cards.  This is my Fine Art America store that handles the physical printing, assembly and shipping of my artwork to your door.

All my watercolor paintings are done on archival watercolor paper and sealed with a UV protectant.   You would still want to take care of your artwork however by not letting it get wet, and keeping it displayed out of direct sunlight.

My original artworks are also for sale (unless otherwise noted). To purchase the original painting, please contact me using the form on the bottom of this page.  It will come with a certificate of authenticity.

I prefer to ship these unframed, so the buyer can choose the mat and frames that best suit their décor.   However, if someone prefers me to frame it and ship it, I can do that as well.  Prices quoted on the site are for the originals, unframed.  Payment via paypal is accepted.

Thanks for visiting.  Please check back often to see new work added.  Feel free to facebook, google1+ or pinterest my work.

Cheers,

Valerie Garner
