Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Mountain Landscape, 6x8" Oil on Panel

Inspired by a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

SOLD

 I am always inspired by the stunning, scenic, mountain views.





I like to display these small pieces  on a shelf, along with my other "treasures".  Many times, I don't even bother to frame them.

I am in the mountains now, and it is a cool sunny morning.  This Florida girl is running around in layers, trying to stay warm in the morning and stripping down in the afternoon heat.  Of course, the North Carolina natives, consider me to be rather wimpy.  So be it!

Expressionist Seascape Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Textured Art, Palette Knife Painting, SOLD

Well probably your 5 yr old kid could do this....right?  Maybe that is why I enjoy it so much.

SOLD
 I may be a slow learner, because it took me many years to get to this point.  Mama never said I was the sharpest knife in the drawer.



All kidding aside, I really love the freedom of this piece.  Instead of leaving the studio feeling like I have been fighting for hours, I felt very relaxed, happy and ready to sail through the day.  I think I need to do this more often!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Their owner, wanted paintings of them, that related to each other.  She supplied me with images, which I used to create the paintings.

Here is Louie, again, just in case you missed my previous post.

Flower Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art, Textured Art, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil SOLD

Today I painted a flower.

SOLD

I have been struggling with my painting, for a full year now.  I have never been able to establish a routine in the studio, since we packed our bags, and moved to the mountains.  I thought I was over painting.  I found no joy in it.  In fact, everything I struggled to paint, seemed more like a duty and I found it frustrating.

But now, we have been back at the beach for three months.  It took awhile. First the holidays got in the way, but after the first of the year, I started to regain my love of spending my days in the studio. 

Maybe it was the inspiration of the long walks on the beach, or maybe  it was being back with my art buddies again.  Whatever..........I am thrilled and anxious to smear paint across canvas again!



It is such a JOY!!!
