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!

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.

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.

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.

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