This is Stumpy Pond in Fort Mill. Dave and I walked here last Sunday because we finally had a nice day- no rain and 70 degrees. The pond was actually muddy brown from all the rain, but I used my artistic license and made it blue. We had a great walk and I found many new areas to paint and took lots of photos. 8x10, oil
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for looking at my blog. I also have a separate website at jenspaker.com
I'm a life long painter and enjoy painting landscapes and still life. I paint in both oil and acrylic. I paint what I like- sometimes going in phases of different subjects and styles. I like to try new ideas and subject matter. That keeps it interesting and challenging for me. Follow me on Instagram or Facebook and see my work at several galleries in New Bern, NC, Fort Mill, Columbia and Georgetown, SC. Thanks again for taking a look!
