Abstract Skyscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x8x3" Original Oil, SOLD

Today is gray, foggy and damp, so I decided to post the most fun painting I could find.


You know how I love color and texture and this little painting has it all.

I painted it on a 8x8x3" canvas, so even the shape is unique.  It's chunky and cute and it resides on a bookshelf , where it brightens the whole room.  I cannot help but smile each time I look at it.

The canvas was a mistake.  I did not realize how deep it was when I ordered it.  What could I possibly do with it?  Well, for this painting, I think it is perfect!

Have a fantastic day!

Textured Seascape, Coastal Decor, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Palette Knife Painting, 9x12" Oil SOLD

This painting is the direct result of many, many, walks on the beach, last winter.

A possible framing choice.

How to capture the excitement of a breaking wave?    I painted with a palette knife and could not capture the actual colors, but I think I came very close.

Bluebird Painting, Daily Painting,Small Bird Art, Small Oil Painting, Bluebird of Happiness

I like to paint birds.......usually, herons, egrets or pelicans catch my eye.  So, I really appreciated this reference photo from my friend and photographer, Ted Fuhrer.  You can see more of his work on facebook.  6x8" on canvas panel.

The original is sold, but it would be an adorable giclee print on canvas or wood planks, in the size of your choice.  Contact me if you are interested in details.

I hope you find a bluebird outside your window this morning!

Ocean Wave Painting, Coastal Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, SOLD

For lovers of the sea!

I did a few small paintings where I focused in on a wave, instead of my usual long distance view.  I was not sure they would be successful, but they both sold quickly.  Both clients have similar reactions to them.....they felt the paintings revived wonderful memories of their times in or on the ocean.  I decided to try a few more.

The original is sold, but, it looks really cool, as a giclee print on distressed wood planks.  Contact me, if you are interested.  Also available as a giclee on canvas.



I have a few more seascapes to show you soon.  I hope you enjoy this one!
