"Abacus: The History of Counting" 2min Video (Trailer)- 10 ft long commissioned painting

 Well it is finally done! Some of you know that I recently completed a 40 x120" commissioned painting for a Tampa based accounting firm and had a video produced to document the process. This is a trailer and reduces 2 years of work into 2 minutes. I would love to hear your comments and please share if you like. Thank you. - Princess

SOLD- "The Marsh", 8 x 6", Oil Stick on Cradled Board


"The Marsh"
by Princess Simpson Rashid
8 x 6"
Oil Stick on Board

What's the Story Behind This Painting?


Back in 2011,  I was selected to participate in an event called Painting the Region-Color the coast in Northeast Florida. The above painting, "The Marsh" is a scene executed outside the Mayport  Naval Base in Jacksonville, Fl.  I painted it the same day and in the same location, I painted, "Sunset".

I finally got the painting just as I had enough of the bugs and as the sun went down. I didn't want to see what comes out at night in that little marsh so I hauled tail! LOL!

What's the Story Behind This Painting? Back in 2011, I was selected (juried) to participate in a plein air event called Painting the Region-Color the Coast in Northeast Florida. The above painting, "Sunset" is of a scene executed outside the Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, FL. I had been painting all day in another area near a old fishing shack.  As I drove out of the area, I came across this scene and had to paint it. The sun was going down and I was just struck by the beauty of the scene. I parked my car along the side of the road and set up as fast as I could before loosing the light...and of course before the mosquitoes started to eat me alive. LOL!
