Palm Tree and Beach Landscape Painting, Tropical Diptych on Canvas,

 This is something I have been working on for several weeks.  I am soooo ready to call it done!



It consists of two 24x48" canvases and the scene is compiled from many photos and memories.


The originals are sold, but if you are interested in a giclee print on canvas, please contact me.


Thank you for viewing today.

Playing with Alcohol Inks, Abstract Floral, Daily Painting, Flower art

 

This is what an oil painter does, when she is in a slump!

6x8"

For reasons that are too boring to talk about, I have found myself in an oil painting slump.

When I came to Florida, for three months this winter, I purposely left my oil painting supplies at home.  I brought pastels, watercolors, alcohol inks, etc.  My plan was to force myself to paint with media that was unfamiliar and  awaken my creative juices.  When I was back in the swing of things, I would once again turn to my oils.

Soooo, I created this little piece, for a challenge.  The challenge was to use metallic colored pencils in a composition.  The pencils are not saturated colors and the metallic aspect of them is not strong, so I decided to do a mixed media piece.  

This is a combination of the pencils, alcohol inks, and a black sharpie pen.  The hash marks are from the metallic pencils.  The sharpie, should have been a wider tip, but I used what I had.  

I found it to be a frustrating and fascinating project.  Successful?  Maybe not.  But it got me back in the art mode, and I plan to work from here.  I already caught myself thinking "I wish I had my oils here", so perhaps my little plot it working.  In any case, I am happy I spent a few hours experimenting.

Beach Oil Painting, Seagull and Surf Art, Coastal Home Decor, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painter

 

I have run from the snowy mountains, to the beaches of Florida.  Lucky me, I can walk on the beach, and work at the same time.

 I photoed this guy, during my morning walk and painted soon after.




The birds are so conditioned to people, they barely move when you approach.  In the morning, it is all business, as they are looking for food.

We are enjoying our Florida winter on the beach.  Being a snowbird is a good thing!

Abstract Oil Landscape Painting, Small Original Artwork, Coastal Home Decor, Daily Painting

 

The Outer Banks on North Carolina have been on my mind.  I was thinking of Ocracoke when I painted this little abstract seascape.



The Outer Banks is like no other place I have visited. Surrounded by water, the residents are a hardy type who take pride in providing for themselves.  The danger of living there, is still felt, as the tropical storms and hurricanes devastate the dunes and road on a regular basis.  In earlier times, shipwrecks littered the beaches.

I painted with a palette knife and oils, leaving it as raw and wild as the beaches.

Thanks for viewing my art today.

I enjoy a challenge....and for me, this was a challenge.  I would hate to tell you how much time I spent on this little 6x8" piece.

I think it was worth the struggle.  Hopefully, the next rose will come a little easier.

Thanks for reading my blog.
