Into the Lion's Den - finished and featured; also, upcoming show

Into the Lion's Den ( or, as my daughter calls it, Stephen King's Door Knocker:-) is finished. I accentuated the shadows and darkened some areas.  It is 12" X 16" and I will probably frame it under glass rather than varnishing it.

The background color is closer in real life to the color in the previous post. I hope that you still like it.
It has already been featured on the Red Bubble site:

Now, it's time to move on to another project:-)

I have a new show starting next Wednesday at the Foyer Gallery. It is a holiday show of smaller pieces and it's called: Art to Go.  I will be displaying 5-6 paintings in that show until the first week of January. This will be my last show of 2011.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Wonderful job on Into the Lion's Den. I don't think it looks SKing at all:) Great idea on the Art to Go Show...Just the name of the show inspires folks to come prepared to purchase a piece of art for a holiday gift.

  2. I am glad that you like this painting, Kathy. I am really looking forward to this upcoming show. I will let you know how it goes.

  3. Beautiful painting, Christiane! I love the colors.
    Congratulations on your paintings being in the Foyer show, too!!

  4. Beautiful, love the peeling paint effect :)
    Good luck in the show xx

  5. Theresa, you are a master of beautiful colors, so your comment about my colors means even more to me! I am looking forward to this Foyer show - I have one more watercolor to frame before I take my paintings to the gallery this afternoon.

  6. Pat, the peeling paint texture was the challenge that attracted me to the reference picture. I am very pleased that you like it. Thank you as always for your support.

  7. Hey Christiane...sorry to have been AWOL life seems to have gotten in the way of my computer world...ha. Really love this guy...he evokes "big bad protector" of whatever is behind that door. The peeling paint is fabulous...great colors here.

  8. Mollie, I am so happy to hear from you. I was starting to worry about you:-) I am also glad that you like this guy...he is certainly growing on me. Take good care of yourself and all my best to you and yours for the Holiday Season!
