Each painting has been done on a 18’ x 24’ stretched canvas and protected with a coat of varnish.

We started making candles last year and fell in love with the process. Each candle is made separately and great care is given to each one. Only natural materials are used in the making of these candles. We use soy wax and cotton wicks on each one.
While most of our candles are the color of the natural wax, we do offer a few with color added.
Because of the time and care that goes into making each candle, we only offer them as the holiday season approaches. Be sure to check back to see if we have added more. Our handmade candles are available for purchase at Wendybsstudio90264 on Etsy.
In 2020 during the height of Covid I moved to the California desert town of Indio. Since moving here I have spent some time exploring my new area. I am currently working on a series of paintings of Indio and the painting pictured is the first one I have completed.
The painting of Indio pictured above is of northern Indio. Northern Indio has shopping centers and housing complexes and it also has large expanses of empty desert with large mountains behind it. Much of the rest of the town is the same.
Indio is known for hosting the Coachella and Stagecoach music concerts. The concerts happen in the spring right before all of the snow birds leave for the season. During the summer the town quiets down until fall when the snow birds return.
One day I took a drive up to the hills in La Quinta to an area called The Cove. It was just before the sun began to set and I went for a short hike. The landscape was beautiful and full of hiking trails. Just beyond this point is an oasis like area with picnic tables. A great place to spend the day.
On the border between California and Arizona is Lake Havasu. Some friends of mine rented a house boat and we spent a few days on the lake. The scenery is unusual but stunning. I was able to photograph much of the area by boat. A great place to vacation with the family.
I usually enjoy painting on large canvas but last week I decided to go small. A friend gave me a silver pepper mill and I thought it would be a perfect subject for a small painting. I used a 5” x 7” canvas panel board and loved how it turned out.
This little painting would be a great addition to your kitchen decor or to give as a gift. It is available at our new site on Etsy dedicated to original oil paintings by artist Wendy Brown. It can be purchased at WMB Paintings on Etsy.

Every once in a while I want to paint something fun. This small painting was done last year right after Halloween. I bought some candy just in case trick-or-treaters came to my door. This was one of the left over treats. I decided I wanted to paint it as I love painting big things small and small things big.
Another reason for choosing this subject was it reminded me of going out on Halloween and having fun. While I no longer eat very much candy, this use to be one of my favorites.
When I decided to paint this portrait of Elizabeth Taylor I tried to think of a woman who made an impact on Hollywood and whose career was extraordinary. Elizabeth Taylor came to mind. She was talented, elegant and full of controversy.
She began acting as a young woman and continued for most of her life. She is a Hollywood legend and will be remembered for a long time coming.
If you would like to purchase this original art piece you can find it at Wendybsstudio90264 on Etsy.
I am into all things retro. I think it comes from my love of history. Last week I decided I wanted to do a portrait and I wanted to embrace the colors of the 1970’s. The only thing missing from this portrait is the avocado green.
Clint Eastwood his Dirty Harry character are symbolic of that time period. I love his side burns and hairdo. The expression on his face which is so Clint Eastwood. In those movies he plays a rogue policeman, but he gets the job done. Classic Hollywood.
Last week I began a small painting series that celebrates summer. It started off with flip flops and this week summer peaches. I love doing small paintings. It gives me a chance to complete a painting in a few hours and hones in on needed skill sets for doing larger ones.
Peaches always remind me of my grandmother and her family. Many of her brothers and sisters grew peaches and some for a living. They would arrive with boxes full. My grandmother would then make them into pies and peach cobbler and sometimes jam. She was a great baker and she is the one who taught me all of my baking skills.
A more modern take on peaches is to grill them on the barbecue. If you have not done this, you should. They taste fantastic, especially topped on a bowl of ice cream.
Wonderful memories of summers spent with family is why I chose to do this painting. The painting is 9’ x 12’ and has been done on a linen panel board. It is available for purchase at Wendybsstudio90264 on Etsy.
