Newfoundland Ontario artwork painting Keli-Ann Pye-Beshara - "Blake's House" was one of those paintings that just fell out ofme…I was commissioned to create this acrylic on canvas in 2006 when I waspainting like a mad woman (that's what happens when you're scared to death atthe beginning of your full time art career!). Besides the house itself, it hadso many elements that I love to paint such as the variety of trees, a differentstyle architecture than traditional, as well as the foreground rocks andchairs. The clients were as pleased as I was when they received their finished piece 😊 #pieceofpye https://www.kapb.ca/collections/past-commissions/products/the-blakes

Newfoundland Canadian artist Keli-Ann Pye-Beshara - "AlleywayWinter" is a commissioned painting I did waaay back in the day, around 1998,when I lived in Vancouver and was in the interior design industry. A co-workerfound out I painted and kept bugging me to do her a painting she had always wanteddone of a snowy alleyway in her hometown back in the β€˜70s…so one day I gave inand did it for her 😊

Funnystory about this acrylic inks on paper – I had completed the entire foreground(all the buildings, car, and the snow in the alley) and only had the sky leftto do so I mixed up this intense deep purple ink to do a big wash on the sky tocreate the mood. I took a deep breath and started in on the sky. I just keptgoing to keep the flow happening, dipping in the ink with my brush and paintingacross the sky until it was done. When I had finished, I pulled out of my focusand that's when I almost had an artist's heart attack!! As I was dipping mybrush in the ink, apparently the cuff of my sleeve had also dipped in the paintand for every stroke I did in the sky, my sleeve had painted the exact replicain the bottom foreground white snow!!!?? My nearly finished painting thenrequired about 7 more hours of using white ink to subdue the dark purple inkand bring it back up to white (which is NOT easy with ink on paper). Lesson of the day: don't wear long sleeves when painting! πŸ˜‰ #pieceofpye
