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!

Today I am posting a few of my favorites that are still available.  With the upcoming holidays, .

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





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.

SOLD
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.

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

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.
SOLD
 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!
