Original Art - Recent Work


As a full time professional artist, I'm always creating new work. This is a sampling. To see my latest work, go to the online gallery pages or visit my home gallery, The Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center in Millheim, Pennsylvania. You can also get in touch if you like a certain type of work you see and want to know whether I have other similar pieces available. I will, however, try to keep updating this page with a good sampling of my latest work. If you see something you like and might be interested in purchasing, email at karlericleitzel@gmail.com or call at 814-422-8461. I can easily ship work for a small additional charge.

I paint in both alkyd oils and acrylics, with a majority of my work being in oils. Alkyd oils are faster drying than traditional oils, which I prefer, but otherwise are the same in appearance and quality. I usually work on stretched canvas, canvas panel, or masonite panel. Paintings can be purchased either unframed or framed in any of a variety of styles. Most images are shown unframed, but I occasionally show a frame to give a sense of how my work looks framed. Please call or email for prices.

To see additional work of specific types, please use the links below. Some of these pieces will be marked SOLD, but will help you get a better idea of the full range of my work.
