A Journey to Urban 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell

$125.00 + $10.00 S/H

I'm back to painting my feel good subject the urban landscape. Nothing says San Francisco like the trolley. The car and its tracks lead the eye through the painting just as they do in real life. If you haven't ever ridden a trolley in this city you're missing out on a fantastic urban experience.

Pitcher of Red Acrylic 7 x 5 by John K. Harrell


Nothing says summer like a beautiful window flower box. This one was particularly eye catching because of the contrast between the red geraniums and the white paint of the house and window curtains. The old fashioned curtains somehow match the traditional use of a longtime favorite annual.

Cherry 7 x 5 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


Nature can be such an inspiration for so many things especially a painting. The blossoms this spring were so stunning and fragrant. I can see why the bees love them so much. I was trying to capture some of my bees on these flowers but they were to fast for me to catch them in action with my camera. So the painting is a portrait of just the cherry blossoms at their peak.
