I painted this several years ago, after a trip to Lafayette Square in Savannah.  Last month, I returned to Savannah and was captivated again, by that lovely city.

Abstract Sunset, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Textured, 14x18 Oil on Canvas

When I think of Florida, I think of the sun rising over the sea.  It's such a special time to spend on the beach.

purchase here
Usually, I find myself there alone, with only the soft waves and shore birds to keep me company.  I very special time to  connect with nature and prepare for the day ahead.


With this piece, I used my palette knife to give movement to the painting.

Sunflowers and farmhouse...the perfect pairing! daily painting, small oi painting, 6x8 oil painting

Sunflowers and farmhouses, the perfect pairing!

It is a cold, gray day, here in the mountains, and sunflowers are the perfect way to brighten things up.

purchase here

Both sunflowers and farmhouses, are not uncommon, here in the mountains.  It's hard not to smile when I look at sunflowers.

Yesterday, we drove over the mountains  to Gatlinburg.  I am happy to report that things are looking up there.  Spring is taking over, renewal is everywhere.  Yes, there are still signs of the devastating fires from two years ago, but the mood is upbeat and the tourists are there.

Have a wonderful day!

Flipper Lives! Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Dolphin Giclee Print

This was a fun painting for me.  Maybe it's the subject matter, but I smiled the whole time.

Purchase a giclee print here
 A few summers ago, we spent a few days in Key Largo, with our grandson.  The one thing he was really looking forward to was swimming with the dolphins.  He loved every minute of it and later told me he had met a life long goal by doing so.  (He was 13).

While I was watching, I snapped this shot of one of the dolphins, and have had it on my list of subjects to paint for months.

Sometimes, many times, I find myself putting off certain subjects, afraid that I am not accomplished enough to do them justice.  Such was the case here.

I am happy I finally gave it a try, and was pleased with the results.  I will have to push myself more in the future, when I find myself backing off a subject that I am unfamiliar with.

Hope you have a great day!
