Autumn Collection

Autumn Collection

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
16 x 12 inches (L x W)
And with each subject I choose, my goal is NOT TO reflect anything else that I've already created! So that each creation is unique unto itself. This painting, also in the family of reds, has next to nothing similar to "From the Garden"...only common element: a basket! Not even a flower in this one!! But a reflection of possibly Autumn! The original is till available, but a giclee canvas print can be ordered, to your particular size request. Feel free to contact me!!

It is still available, but can also be special ordered as a canvas giclee to your desired size! Please feel free to contact us: bbillups42@gmail.com

Beyond Words

Beyond Words

Betty Jean Billups
Oil on Linen
28 x 22 inches (L x W)
This painting titled "Beyond Words" is dedicated to my Father, with whom I sat for 7 days & nites, as he passed into another existence! Yet, in his unconscious state, tho he could not "see" me, he could hear me. Several times as I said or did for him, he responded! And thus this painting, which had been started before I flew to be with him in this process, and upon coming home, I realized that both figures represented my Dad! The figure in front, in FULL VIEW of us, cannot see us...and the figure somewhat hidden behind, under the red umbrella (the oriental believe the color red represents the soul), is looking directly at the viewer, something I have never done in a painting. But mind you, all this was laid out PRIOR to my having to go to Virginia, and waited for my return! I've never shared this before, but thought it a good time, perhaps it might help someone on the journey they may have to take! Canvas giclee prints can be ordered to whatever size you would love! Hope you will consider it! .... Please visit more art: www.bettybillups.com

Evening Autumn Fields  ~ Plein Air

Evening Autumn Fields ~ Plein Air

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
16 x 20 inches (L x W)
Because of the cloudy day, the light in this painting changed constantly...especially the foreground, that dropped into shadow, and I was able to capture it, before it was gone...or did the center area pop into sunlight?! Hum, does it matter? But at least it was captured...thank goodness. Also notice, there is no REAL DARK area in any of this painting...but the feeling of sunlight was enhanced, by the values of the trees closest to that sunlite area, and also the lack of "clean" color, except where the sunlight is hitting the field! Also available as a canvas print, editions of 50. The size is custom, to your desires. The giclee canvas prints are enhanced so light reflects off this medium's brush strokes, instead of merely the canvas, and thus almost pass as an original!! You can have them made any size you choose...often times, the LARGER, the more powerful! Might be something to think about...and could make a great gift to a loved one, or even yourself! Any comments would be welcome! bbillups42@gmail.com

Billups has painted her "Women in White" for years. She has always been fascinated with the "color" white, which actually can be every color in the rainbow!

From the Garden

From the Garden

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
18 x 24 inches (L x W)
Along with my figuratives, usually of women, I often toss in some florals, since they compliment one another so well! Floral paintings can also be labeled "Still Life"....since obviously they DO NOT MOVE....< thus "STILL"!! Often times I love incorporating another framed painting in the Still Life, to compliment the free flowing feeling of the flowers, played against the harder edge of a frame! In ALL of my work, I love playing opposites, to create strength and interest. To view other paintings, please visit www.bettybillups.com THANKS!!

Oil on Porcelain

Not all strong art has to be large! This little jewel is painted on a sheet of porcelain, that once upon a time, was created for circuit boards for computers. Well, check out your cell phone...< the NEW computer! Thus, these porcelains are NO LONGER used, thus no longer made. I was blessed to discover them a year or so before they were discontinued. And was able to order every size the company made, from 3x3, to the size of your credit card, up to 5x7. Once my supply is gone, these will be "history"!! The subject I captured many years ago, when I went to gatherings that celebrated another time in history, that of the Renaissance!

I Am the Sunlight

I Am the Sunlight

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
18 x 36 inches (L x W)
I visited Ireland in '97, for 5 weeks...was "on foot"...so only painted around two towns. The original of this creation was 6x16, and enlarged to this painting when I returned home. An awe inspiring event happened: a small bird came...checked out my painting (no, it wasn't looking for bugs?!). It would look at me, then turn and look directly at my painting. He did this 3 times! I offered it some sunflower seeds, which it took while balancing on my thumb, then flew off! I just figured birds were friendly in Ireland The next day en-route to a castle, the same sort of bird landed on the pavement. I stooped to photograph it, it flew 15 feet down the road... I gave up after many attempts to photograph it! I had to count backwards from the day I left the States, to figure out the date, to write this down in my journal. The day the bird ate out my hand, was the first anniversary of my Father’s passing: May 19!! So, I titled that little “plein air” painting “I AM THE SUNLIGHT” after a Native American poem: Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints in snow, I am the sunlight on ripening grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift uprising rush of silent birds in flight. And I am the bright stars that shine at night. So do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

Jewel of the Sierras

Jewel of the Sierras

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
28 x 22 inches (L x W)
Like a couple of other "plein air captures" this piece seemed to take off, as the sky continued to explode as the lowering sun lit up the clouds, giving full support to the "diamond" in the rough, along the water's edge! I am often surprised how I ever got that large of a painting completed, as the light continued to change from what I started with, to this "jewel" in the northern mountains of California. It is still available, and also canvas giclee prints are offered...you just need to let us know what size, and we'll get back to you!!! And all canvas giclees are in editions of only 50!

As with all my florals, or known as Still Life Paintings, this one stands alone in its strong colors, and bold design, supported with a few edges of other paintings! That gives a soft touch to the flowers in the vase. The strength is carried thru with the scarf, and the softer shapes of fruit and even onions, just so it doesn't get "too sweet"!!!

Morning Has Broken

Morning Has Broken

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
20 x 16 inches (L x W)
When the morning light first hits a landscape, when the sun peaks around the top of a hill, the light can be quite intense! I have never been an artist that wants or even knows how, to exaggerate a color. But this creation comes close to just that! I often looked at this and wondered where the heck did I find that color...besides on my palette! I really went out on a limb (excuse the expression) when I "went for it"! Willing to even scrape off the paint, if it did not work. BUT, I think this one got the best out of me!! Also available as a canvas giclee print ... feel free to contact us!

Captured a few years ago, when I lived on an old 200 acre ranch NE of Sandpoint ID. Those were sweet years....TOUGH, but sweet memories! Was the first time I ever lived in a snow belt, first time on something larger than a city lot! And first time 10 miles to get my mail!! BUT, great years...LIFE was merely just a step out the door!! This painting was created with what is called "an oil stick"...like a HUGE piece of pastel...but OIL. I did 2 paintings like this...and like THE RAVEN: "NEVER MORE"!!! Think about it...a 24x24 canvas, being "covered with color" ONE THIN LINE AT A TIME! Yep, took HOURS to complete. I almost went into another decade of my life!!! LOL

My fascination with the Color WHITE, has pushed me to create a series of paintings of Women In WHITE. Because tho most believe 'white' to be the absence of color, it actually is ALL COLORS! Why? Because it reflects whatever it is surrounded by! In this creation, wanting to create a feeling of a warm afternoon, the entire painting, including the white of the dresses, is captured in many warm shades of yellow.

More complicated paintings with multiple figures are created from my photo reference, in my private studio.

And flowers can be found just about everywhere...especially in the Spring time!! This was my friend's home in North Idaho...and was too beautiful NOT to attempt to do a Plein Air Painting of it!

A joy, with the color of the house, playing against the sweet violets of the tree.

The Road Home

Betty Jean Billups
Oil
24 x 36 inches (L x W)
This wonderful capture was on the road to my home, seldom seen since it is a dead end road. I am so glad that I finally saw it's beauty one day out of the 30+ years of winter here! Coming home one early afternoon, from my weekly trip to town, it was a tad warm, so got my paints and returned to attempt to capture it! Doing a plein air while in the winter is not easy...for the cold makes it difficult to hold onto the brushes. Especially one as large as this 24x36 oil on linen! And it is extra special now, since a number of years later, new neighbors on the mountain cause a fire, that destroyed ALL that is seen in this view! The original is still available, however Giclee Canvas Print in edition of 50 are offered at a great savings, and to whatever size you would desire!!
