It is always interesting and educational to review the painting journey that you have been on.  I like to line up older paintings, chronologically, which helps me to see the improvements I have made and the ones I would like to make in the future.  Always an interesting exercise.

Have a painterly day and thanks for visiting!

A Summer Day in the Blue Ridge Mountains, 11x14" Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Cabin Decor, SOLD

 

It looks like summer in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  As our lives change from day to day, Mother Nature is telling us,that all will someday be well.  The earth is surviving very well without us, thank you, and it is up to us humans to change our routines as life will go on, with or without us.

Purchase here


I would prefer it went on with us!

Although the Blue Ridge Parkway was closed, for some time, it is now open and giving people in the area a place to drive and walk and enjoy nature.

This is an 11x14" original oil painting.  The 1.5" deep sides are painted black, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.

Stay safe!

Coastal Home Decor, Beach House Art, Coastal Painting, Daily Painting, Original Art,

I have run from the snowy mountains, to the beaches of Florida.  Lucky me, I can walk on the beach, and work at the same time.




Purchase Here
 I photoed this guy, during my morning walk and painted soon after.




The birds are so conditioned to people, they barely move when you approach.  In the morning, it is all business, as they are looking for food.

We are enjoying our Florida winter on the beach.  Being a snowbird is a good thing!

Farmhouse Wall Decor, Barn Landscape Painting, Carolina Landscape Art, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painter

Barn Landscape Painting.

When my Pieces of 8 art buddies were visiting me, in my mountain condo, we left our paints at home.  We still had plenty to do!

Each day we would venture out, with our cameras in hand.  One day we drove through the countryside, looking for rustic barns.

Purchase here
 We found plenty to choose from.






On this painting, I used a combination of brushwork and knifework.  I concentrated on color relationships and texture.

I so enjoy fall in the mountains and wanted to share some of the sights of the season.

Thanks for viewing my blog today!

Dogs, dogs, and more dogs! Pet Portraits, Dog Paintings, Small Oil Painting,

My niece Kayla, asked me to paint a small portrait of her dog.  It reminded me of all the dog portraits I did, when I first started painting.



 People have such an emotional connection with their pets.


  I  enjoy the personality that show in pictures of dogs and I strive to capture that quality in my paintings.



Some of my favorites...






























Have a happy day!

Echinacea Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Palette Knife Art, Textured Art, 6x8" SOLD

One of my favorite flowers to paint, are coneflowers (echinacea).  I think they have so much personality.

SOLD

This time, I used a palette knife, to add interest and dimension.



I always try to keep a black frame around, as I think they really help the painting to pop!

Check out my new website here.

Floral Still Life, Hydrangea Painting, Second Bloom, Daily Painting, SOLD

Last winter, I spent three months on the east coast of Florida.  It involved many walks on the beach, and my painting was full of seagulls, and seascapes.

I also painted this hydrangea still life.  I hope you like it.

SOLD

It is quite different for me.  I usually do not paint with such high values only, but it had it's charm and sold quickly.

Weeds Can Be Beautiful,Thistle Still Life Study, Daily Painter, Small Oil Painting, SOLD

This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.

SOLD

 I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.



This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!




Thank you for viewing my art today.

Still Life Painting, Daily Painting, Small oil Painting,

Every once in awhile, I like to review my painting files.  I think it is extremely helpful, to see how your painting style has changed over the years.

SOLD

SOLD

When I started painting, I did lots of still life.  These two have encouraged me, to get back in the still life mode, doing set-ups in my studio.

Sometimes we just need to shake things up a little.   I think I am there, now.  Let's get a little new inspiration!
