I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT, 8X10, OIL


When the earth tilts and the days get shorter, I get lovely shadow shapes in my breakfast nook.


Here the shadow of group of palms falls against a teapot sitting on the windowsill.


It's what I like to call a "happy accident", instant set-up!

SURF IS UP!, 5x7, OIL



Just what I needed today!  I am so behind, trying to juggle about six balls in the air at once, knowing I cannot do it all, and I struck gold!  I found a little painting I had done months ago and somehow, forgotten to post.  So here it is, my lifesaver of the week!

Have a great weekend!

Marsh Painting, Small Oil Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, SALTWATER MARSH, SOLD



I tried for years to take an interesting painting of this marsh off I-75 near Brunswick GA but traveling at 75 MPH does not lead to good photography. Finally, my husband approached the spot with no cars behind us and was able to pull out of traffic so that I could try again.




SOLD


I think marshes are so interesting as the water comes and  recedes and the colors change with the seasons.

GOOD MORNING, CAROLINA, 6X8, OIL


In Florida, when the sun comes up, daylight is everywhere. In the mountains of North Carolina, the rising sun bathes the sky with light and color while darkness cloaks the valley.




 Here early risers find their way in the darkness as the sun starts to climb the mountains. In a few minutes all will be light, but for now, the night holds on.

SUMMER'S GONE, 6X6, OIL, SOLD


Don't you just love sunflowers?  They are so expressive the way they follow the sun with their heads.  I especially love the giant 7 foot tall ones.


I love the way they poke their heads between the slats of a fence as if they are saying hello and then they bow when their time is gone.

I am happy to announce that I have been invited to join DailyPainters.com.  I hope you will take the time to visit my gallery on their wonderful website.
