Small Landscape Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil

Did you ever have that feeling, that you just want to get away?  Away from the hustle and bustle of life, the job, the town, .......just everything?

This little painting, is my idea of that perfect get away.  It's on a quiet mountain road, snuggled up under the trees, but not so far from civilization that I would not want to be there alone.  In other words.....PERFECT!


Oh, to waken to birds chirping, and leaves falling softly to the ground.



I have not added this piece to my Etsy site yet, so feel free to contact me here, if you are interested in purchasing.

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Sea Painting, Palette Knife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x16x.75" Oil, SOLD

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occasion with a new abstract.

SOLD
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.

Packing up the studio!

Value can mean many things.  Today I am thinking about how much I value my blog readers and the people who have supported my art over my past 10 years, that I have been selling art on the internet.

25% - 60% Off original paintings


Many of you have asked about my moving sale.  After 40+ years of living on the Florida coast, we are pulling up roots and moving to the mountains of western North Carolina.  From the Atlantic to the Blue Ridge!

purchase here


It is both exciting and frightening.  Leaving family and friends behind is heartbreaking, but the mountains are calling us.  It's now or never and we decided on now!  


purchase here

As a result, I am trying to drastically reduce my inventory.  Thank you dear readers, for your support of my art in the past, and your response to my sale.  The results are heartwarming!  

purchase here
Today I am posting a few of my favorites that are still available.  With the upcoming holidays, .
it's the perfect time to get a head start on your gift list or your wish list.

Flower Palette Knife Painting, Hydrangea Painting,Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Textured Floral

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings



While everyone is running around, with thoughts of turkey on their minds, I sit at the computer, remembering my lovely garden from last summer.  Hydrangea is always a favorite for me.

Purchase here
I painted with a palette knife, and left it very impressionistic, almost abstract.  I wanted to highlight the colors and not the form.



I have been struggling with my oils for several months now, but I was happy with the results on this piece, which has given me hope.

Thank you for viewing my blog today and I wish you all a HAPPY TURKEY DAY.

Floral Oil Painting, Knife Painting, Small oil Painting, Daily Painting

I call this "Roadside Bouquet" because I was walking a country road in the Blue Ridge Mountains last summer, and I collected all these wonderful flowers blooming in ditches and fields.  Wild day lily, Queen Ann's Lace, daisy and purple clover abound!

SOLD
I was in the zone, while painting this, slinging paint and making no effort to be true to the image I was working from.  No, my orange day lilies don't look like day lilies and I am fine with that.

It was one of my favorite home made bouquets...here is the picture.



I cannot wait for summer to return!

Thanks for reading my blog today.

Abstract Giclee Print, Daily Painting, Teal and Green Abstract

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings



I have been in an experimental mood lately.  My oils have been gathering dust as I pour acrylics and alcohol inks.


Purchase here

This piece is done on yupo paper, which really isn't paper at all, but a  very slick plastic type of surface favored by watercolorists.  It is an alcohol ink piece.

The original is not available, but I am offering this as a giclee print in several sizes.

We are in the process of moving and my mind seems scattered these days.  I will try to continue to post during the process, but please bare with me.  Eventually, we will be settled and my posts will become more regular.

Have a great day!

Wildlife Painting, Landscape with Wildlife Painting, Daily Painting Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings



This painting was a real experiment for me.  I wanted to paint a sunset, wildlife and marsh, but could not find a reference image  that I liked.


Purchase here
120 + shipping


Then I remebered a workshop I took, many years ago from Fritz vanEeden.  Fritz is an artist of international aclaim.  Among his many talents is his ability to paint images that he pulled from his mind's eye.

I gave it a try!


detail

I started with the direction of the sky and clouds and then laid in the  wetlands below.


I have to admit, I did use a photo reference for the heron.  I just could not visualize all those body parts!

All in all, I was happy the day's efforts, and hopefully, this technique will come in handy in the future.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Florida Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Tropical Painting, 5x7" Oil Landscape SOLD

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings



I guess I am a typical artist.  By that, I mean unorganized!

I just found this little painting in the back of my inventory closet.  I must have painted it 6 or 7 years ago!



I always wondered why it didn't sell!

I sit here tonight (Sept 10) listening to the wind howl, the rain pounding, a huge tree down in our yard and another of about 19 tornado warnings on our weather radio going off.  Hurricane Irma has been beating us up all day, with the worse to come about 2:00 a.m.

Trying to do blog posts to distract from the fury outside.

On the bright side, for the time being, we still have power.  The lights flicker, but so far, they have come back on.  That's a biggy!  When we lose power in a hurricane, it usually takes close to a week to get it back.  A long hot, humid week!!

Thanks for reading my blog.

Berries Mix Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Original Painting

Moving Sale!!

25% Off most original paintings



I couldn't find anything to paint, so, I decided to paint my breakfast.  On this day, I was waiting for Hurrican Irma to pass by us.  After an extremely stressful week, with reports ranging from landfall on the east coast of Florida to the west coast, and back again, it is headed for Tampa as I paint.

Purchase here

 Our house is encased in metal panels and no sunlight or noise is heard outside.  It is sunny, or raining.....I have not idea. Later, the wind will howl and the walls may shake, but our primary fear is flooding inside out home.

Painting has helped me get through the day and taken my mind off what is happening outside.

This cat lives at our local art suppy store.  My art group, Pieces of Eight, meets there each week, and we spend the morning creating, visiting, challenging.....and then have lunch together.

SOLD
 Kitty loves to interact with us, jumping in the middle of our paintings, climbing into our art bags, doing her cat thing.  Usually mid morning, she climbs into her favorite sleeping place....an artist browser.  For those of you who don't know, it is a canvas sling, much like a hammock.  That is where I snapped a photo of her, which of course, woke her up.

Can you tell, fom her expression, that she seems less than happy with me?


Hope you have a wonderful day!

Tree on Fire, Autumn Painting, Fall Foliage, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 8x10x1.5" original art

MOVING SALE!!

25% OFF most original Paintings

Autumn in the mountains is where I want to be.  Last year, I was very lucky to spend two months there.
Purchase here
199 + shipping
 I was inspired to paint this one from the ever evolving show I saw each day.  It brings back childhood memories of northern Ohio and Michigan.....minus the mountains, of course.




 What more could I ask for?  It gets better and better each day.  Of course, in the mountains it seems the color is climbing to the sky.




One evening we spied a herd of Elk in the meadow.  You can hear them bellowing in the woods this time of year.They come down to the meadows to feed at dusk and dawn..  This herd was one make and about 30 females.

As much as I love it there, I was ready to head south to Florida when the weather got cold.  When the trees are stripped bare, and the cold winds are blowing, I enjoy the beautiful beaches. Life is good!

 Another fish painting.  Don't ask what kind of fish it is, I don't know.

I do know I am enjoying these palette knife paintings immensely.  I have been so intense about my brush work, that I had ignored the palette knife for months.  Now that I am working with it again, I am enjoying the freedom it brings.
