Daniel Island Marsh

I visited this area in Charleston, SC,  last week. This is a tidal creek, so sometimes its almost empty. But here its full! Debating about adding a bird. Those white egrets are tough to paint- so I might let this dry first, then try to add the egret. We'll see.

Hints of Spring

I was walking my dog Charlie a few days ago on some neighborhood trails. Came across this nice scene at sunset. Luckily my phone had 2% power and I could take a few photos. It's been very cold here but I know spring is around the corner.  I like the pastel colors in this painting but I struggled with the backlit tree line and the field grasses. It looks like such an easy scene to paint….but it wasn't! 20x24, Oil.

Valentine Roses

 Experimenting with Oil painting on Illustration Board. I love how it absorbs some of the paint, create a nice drag and dries so quickly. I know there is specific oil paper and I'm going to buy some. Hoping I can get similar results.

Hurricane Michael and the Panhandle

All of these paintings were painted around Apalachicola, Florida and Port St. Joe. This area hosts a yearly artist convention and artists from around the US attend. Its a beautiful, non-touristy area of Florida- thats why artists love it.  It just took some heavy damage from Hurricane Michael and hoping the people and the community can recover soon.

Green Fields-Big Ones!

I'm still working on these. They will be at Charlotte Fine Art Gallery for a May, 2018,  flower themed show. The top one is 36x36 and the bottom one is 22x28. I painted them both very quickly- in a day and half. Sometimes deadlines make me really work fast!

Wando River, Daniel Island, South Carolina

                I painted this 11x14 last week in Daniel Island, SC. This is a suburb of Charleston. My husband Dave has a new job here and I came along for a few days. The scenery was gorgeous. I did a few more paintings, and once I touch them up I'll post them. I think this one is the best of the four that I painted.

English Countryside

                   Painted this 11x14 plein air painting last fall when in London, England and surrounding area. I finally got around to touching it up a bit. It was a very cold day and the ground was so boggy and soggy that I  literally sunk about  four inches into the ground while painting it.  My feet and hands were freezing. I have some great countryside photos and plan to paint some more English countryside paintings soon.
