'Two Pair' Whimsical Abstract Study of Pears in Oil by M.Allison

Two Pair
30 X 40 oil, acrylic
contact me:

From my new series (yet untitled).  I love to paint pears
and have done them in many ways.  This painting happened to
be one that, when I thought I had finished, I didn't like.  It 
happens and I really don't like it when that happens.  
I repainted it and now I do like it.  Floating pears, 
suspended pears, whatever.  I think it's fun.

'I Just Want One' Oil and Acrylic Contemporary Figurative Painting by M.Allison

I Just Want One
20X24 oil, acrylic
contact me:

This is one from my new series (that I haven't officially titled yet
but am just calling it 'Collection' for now)
and the only figurative so far.  I painted this background 
with an acrylic glaze, then when it's almost dry I wipe off
whatever is still wet.  It makes a really interesting 'under
painting' that I,m pretty fond of. I then paint away!

'Three Vases' Abstract Realistic Painting in Oil by M.Allison

Three Vases
40X16 oil
contact me for purchase or commissions:

Going crazy (literally) with my splashy new stuff.  Somewhat
absract, somewhat realistic...but that's what I call myself - 
an abstract realist.  I do use a glaze for the underpainting so
I guess this is mixed media. Actually, I painted this first with, I think 
every color on my palette, and was NOT pleased, so I scraped
it off and started over, and now I like it.  Worth the paint
and the time!

'The Dance' Abstract Figurative Chosen for Book Cover by M.Allison

The Dance
14 X 14 oil, graphite
contact me:

Wow!  You never know.  This painting has been chosen as a
book cover - y'all may just see this on the stands one day.  I must
say that I've never had this privilege before and I'm pretty proud! It's
just a shot in the dark (a rare thing) when I can paint something in just
a few minutes and have it be a favorite.  I think the stars and the
 moon and all that cosmic stuff just lines up!

'Field of Flowers' Abstract Floral Oil Painting by M.Allison

Field of Flowers
24 X 26  oil
contact me for purchases and commissions:

This is one of my new series and I can't think of a good
name for it!  It's splashy, muted, whimsical, somewhat
abstract yet still realistic and so fun to paint.
 I've done several and have now done a figurative.
Will post that one soon. Oh, the places we'll go!

' I Saw It At Night' Abstract Landscape in oil and graphite by M.Allison

I Saw It At Night
48 X 36 oil and graphite
contact me for purchase and commissions:

A very serene and moody abstract landscape. Another apology
for the photo because the details are really nice and crisp.  This
happens to be one of my favorites!

'Me and My Shadows' Contemporary Oil Painting with Graphite by M.Allison

Me And My Shadows
36X48. Oil and Graphite
Please contact me for purchase and commissions:

I really wanted to paint light and shadow, so I hung this lonely little
ceramic pear on a string and decided he needed a couple of friends.
I suppose this is realistic and I suppose it's abstract. Using both is my art!
