Early Spring

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

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.
