Mountain Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Smoky Mountains 6x8" Oil Painting

I have been in North Carolina for the past month, so naturally we had to take a few drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  I always think it will not be so impressive this time, I have seen it many times.  But, I never fail to see a view that requires a quick intake of breath!

Purchase here

Trying to get the effect of the morning mist was the challenge here.  Not sure I pulled it off, but it is a good try.  Practice makes perfect.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Small Abstract Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Summer Dance Painting

I came back from a walk in the Blue Ridge Mountains, inspired by the bright summer colors.  Flowers were evident around every turn.

purchase here


I love abstract, but find them very difficult.  I have to have a starting point, some type of inspiration, some plan of composition.  Often I end of scraping off hours of work.

This is one of the few that appeals to me.  I felt good about it and still think it conveys the emotions I was feeling at the time.  I mark this one as a success for me.




Thanks for reading my blog today.

Tropical Sunrise Painting, Landscape Painting, "Florida Sunrise", Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil

I was drinking my morning coffee, in a hotel lobby, when I noticed the sun coming up behind the palms.  I took a photo (through the window blinds) and used it as a reference.

purchase here





I like to use these small paintings on shelves  for added interest.  Some times I frame them, some times I don't.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Abstract Art Print, Acrylic Pouring, Giclee Print on Canvas

We have left the summer heat behind and are enjoying the cooler mountain air.  Along with the cooler air, I have brought a desire to experiment.



Poured painting is another skill to be practiced and perfected.  On the surface, it seems simple enough, but, I find I ditch more than I save.
Technique is critical and varied, and in the end, you give up control and hope for the best.  I warn you....it is addictive!
Can you believe it will be August tomorrow?

Small Abstract Painting, Summer Colors, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8 Original Abstract SOLD

We are in serious summer now!   I decided to post a little abstract that screams SUMMER!


SOLD
 Some days I just want to work with texture and color.  It is a great release, when I find my neck and shoulders tight.

Some days I just want to remind myself that this is my hobby......don't get too serious about the results.....don't stress when you don't produce a masterpiece......just enjoy the process.

Rose Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil Painting on Panel

Yes, another rose painting!  But quite different than my last post.


Purchase here 
110. + shipping
 I have been on quite a flower painting jag lately, and still have more to come.  I spent the month of April in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and was inspired by the beautiful show from Mother Nature.  Flowers were everywhere, especially the trees and bushes.

Now that I am home again, I cannot stop looking at my stash of photos and painting flowers every day.

Yesterday, I went to Bok tower, here in Florida, with my paint buddies, and got inspired all over again.  Miles of beautiful gardens!

Mountain Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Original Oil

We spend our summers in the Smoky Mountains, trying to escape the heat and humidity of Florida.  The mountain views are impossible to ignore.

Purchase here



When I finish a new little painting, I like to prop it up on the fireplace mantel, where I can see it and live with it for a few days.  If it passes that test, it goes on Etsy.
