Among Friends Hollyhocks by Christiane Kingsley
Oil 24" x 6"
 
This hollyhock painting is to replace the dark pink hollyhocks I recently sold. For my upcoming show and sale at the Nepean Fine Arts League on Oct. 18-20, I really wanted to display three of these tall, thin paintings. These paintings look wonderful together or alone on a wall.

Reach to the Sky by Christiane Kingsley
Oil 24 x 6
 
Another oil original in my Hollyhocks series. This one is in deeper colors. It is wired and ready to hang. I found a public garden in my city with beautiful hollyhocks. I took as many photos as I could of these elegant and somewhat old-fashioned flowers. They remind me of happy, lazy summer days.

Reflections on Summer Pond by Christiane Kingsley
Oil 16 x 16
 
After serious paintings, I need to play with my paints and just enjoy the colours mixing and dancing on the canvas. The result of this joyful time is a 16x16x1.5 oil abstract called Reflections on Summer Pond.

It can be displayed an a mini-easel as shown ( and which I can supply free of charge) or you can frame it. It does not require any glass. Start your butterfly collection today. There is always a small shelf, a table, a window sill where this charming creature can sit.

Tulip Tapestry (2) by Christiane Kingsley
Mixed 5" x 7"
 
Are you dreaming about Spring? These colorful tulips are painted on a 5 x7x1/8 ampersand panel. The painting has many layers of watercolor, acrylic, glossy acrylic finish as well as metallic texture. The metallic effect around the tulips adds just enough light to suggest sunlight and warmth. The glossy finish gives the painting almost a glass-like look .It is part of my collection Nature's Little Gems. You can display it on an inexpensive and readily available mini easel as shown here or you can insert it in a standard size frame.

Biography

Christiane Kingsley is a fine arts painter who works in watercolor, acrylic, oil and mixed media.  She started her art journey more than 25 years ago as a part-time fiber artist and colourist..  About 15 years ago, she discovered the magic of watercolor and the transition to this artistic expression was most fluid and logical. Christiane retired in December 2010 after a successful career as a high school teacher and later as a director in the federal Public Service.
 
She is now a full-time painter and is very involved in the  arts community. She served for two years on the board of directors of the Foyer Gallery in Ottawa, the executive of the Ottawa Art Association and Gallery Coordinator for the Nepean Fine Arts League.  She is also the art co-curator for the Café 111 Lisgar Gallery in the Ottawa City Hall building. She managed an established art gallery,The Kevin Dodds Gallery on Bank St. in Ottawa, one day a week for the past three years until its recent relocation. She was also one of the top sellers in that gallery.
 
Christiane’s work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA, Europe,Great Britain and Australia.
