This was a commissioned piece. This is a large original acrylic painting on canvas. If you have an idea you would like to see come to life contact me at email@example.com or through my facebook page www.facebook.com/stoneytreestudio.
This is a Acrylic painting on Canvas with board and it is framed in a solid wood frame. 17.75 x 21.75
The inspiration for this painting is from a photograph I took of some flowers blooming on a tree in North Carolina. I had the photograph printed on a canvas and the canvas I used as a template to build the painting from.
This painting is a 48 x 36 Acrylic Painting of a Hay Field in Wisconsin. The Painting is stretched on a heavy duty wood stretcher. This painting comes not framed. This painting is a painting created mostly with a pallet knife, the paint is layered on thick, so awesome too look at close up. This is also on a used canvas from when I was in college so might have other marks on the back.
Thank you much for looking!
We wrapped up my first solo public show of art in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this weekend at the New Moon Cafe. What a great place that supports the arts in the community. Also great coffee and food. Did I mention the brownie, if you stop make sure to get one of those moon shaped brownies! If you missed the show I do have some paintings left for sale I’ll be posting here soon. If you need shipping I sell through Mercari #stoneytreestudio or if you are local you can save on shipping! I thank God for all of these opportunities! Thank you my friends, family and community for the love and support!
Putting some pottery aside to create some paintings these last few months for my first public gallery opening in a while. The New Moon in Oshkosh will host my artwork for the month of April. Here’s a few examples of work in progress that will be at the show! Come on down if your local and hang out for April Gallery Walk!
French Onion Soup Recipe. What a great time of year in Wisconsin to get onions from the farmers markets. I’m not sure if it is the freshness or what, but these onions brought me to a good amount of tears today! If you love onions as much as us I think you will like this soup. Hopefully I can share a great leek soup recipe with you in the future as well. Enjoy.
5-6 large onions peeled and thinly sliced, I prefer the yellow onions
3 Tbl. Olive Oil
3 Tbl. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 cup of dry white wine (optional)
6 cups of veggie stock
1 tsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce
3 springs of fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried
salt and pepper to taste
In a large frying pan heat oil. Add onions and stir until well browned about 30 min. Add garlic and flour and cook for a few min. more. Stir in wine and deglaze the pan. Add the stock, Worcestershire, bay leaf and thyme. Simmer for about 15 min. Discard herbs before serving.
I prefer to serve with a side salad instead of the traditional bread and cheese.

My kids love pancakes and mini muffins. This is a healthy alternative my kids loved. They were initially worried about the dark color, but once they tried them they loved them. Traditional pancakes are loaded with extra syrup. When I made these pancakes they ate them without the extra syrup! My husband liked them better than regular pancakes too! We have been on a healthier diet for a few months now, so that probably contributes, but over all, I’d say these are going to be a new breakfast staple, or in the case of the mini muffins – anytime healthier snack.
This is one of my favorite pizza hacks. Start with a cheese pizza and scrape off as much cheese and reserve for the top. I usually do half because my kids still prefer cheese only.
Once the cheese is off then add guacamole.
Next add black beans. I use canned beans that are rinsed.
After the beans are on sprinkle the cheese on top and bake to your liking. Usually just a little longer than the box suggests for me.
