Painting needs a name


Finished this painting recently but it still needs a name. Any suggestions?




Landscape progress

Finally starting to look like a painting! I started this Plein Air and have wrestled with it ever since. Some paintings or drawings come more easily than others.

I just looked to see when I started this painting, omg, where did the time go. I went in February to a paint out with the Palm Beach Plein Air group. Maybe I will finish it this month!

The Beach

I love going to the beach. I especially enjoyed painting in the rain at MacArthur Park. I went as part of a group of artists doing a plein air event. Fortunately, I didn’t get drenched, but it did rain a bit on me. I had to cover things up until it stopped. This painting was the result. It is for sale. Please contact me (eeschwege@gmail.com) if you are interested in purchasing this original acrylic painting. It is 16″ x 20″ $395.00 Title: Before the Rain.

I bet you love animals too. I enjoy drawing them.

I do pet portraits in pastels. I have recently lowered my prices to make them accessible to more people.

Art in Palm Beach County

There is a thriving arts community here. Something that I find very attractive about the area. I have only been living here a little over a year but I have already met a lot of people in the arts field and started exhibiting locally. Quite amazing.

I love visiting the local galleries to see what other artists are doing. On Tuesday, my curiosity brought me to the Palm Beach Cultural Council Gallery in Lake Worth, FL. Here’s the link for more info
https://www.palmbeachculture.com/council-events/current-gallery-exhibitions . Enjoyed most of what I saw. Should have taken pictures to share some comments on what I saw. Oh well, next time. Live and learn. I particularly enjoyed the solo exhibits by Barbara Wasserman and Muriel S. Kaplan. Nice work.

My interests in art, as far as what I like to paint/draw, range from animals and landscapes to spiritual abstracts. I started doing pet portraits a couple of years ago and would like to pursue this further. Here is one of my works:

Working on it

Working on new jewelry, revamping what I do with new content and will be appearing here soon. I just went out and bought some of the supplies that I needed; I can’t wait to get in my studio and make some new stuff. I love making things. I always have. I have so many ideas. Some of my gemstone and silver jewelry will be for sale on this website, along with the new jewelry that I will be making. I am adding some new materials.

Here is a bluelace agate and silver bracelet:

I will be adding the jewelry page as soon as I can, so stay tuned.

I did some work on a painting from the plein air paint-out that I went to yesterday. Didn’t finish it yet but I hope to tomorrow. Need more hours in the day.
