Seascape Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Florida Surf Painting, 8x16x.75" Oil

I am trying to break my current addiction to painting flowers, so I dug through my files and found a great image of the ocean.  I have a new (for me) size canvas, 8x16" that I thought would work well for the image.

Purchase here


I have to admit, I enjoyed painting this scene.  My choices of subject matter are always based on emotion and on this day......the waves filled my need for action.

Thanks for reading my blog today....If I were in Florida, I'd be off to the beach.

Appalachian Mountain Cabin Landscape Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Asheville Palette Knife Textured Art

 This painting is either the Blue Ridge Mountains or the Smoky Mountains.  It is difficult to know when you leave one and enter the other.

Purchase here

Either way, it is definitely the Asheville area of  Western North Carolina.

The area is often misty or "smoky" in the mornings, but it usually burns off by mid-day.

Mountain Church Painting, Small Oil Painting, Church Landscape Art, Farmhouse Wall Decor, Daily Painting, SOLD

This is one of the many, small, white, churches, found in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They all have their own charm, and I love driving around in search of them.


The beauty of the red tree, was an added bonus, to my find, but, this is a charming scene, anytime of the year.  It pays to have your cell phone with you!

Have a great day!

Landscape Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Ocracoke Island, N Carolina

I recently visited the outer banks of North Carolina.  Ocracoke is a small settlement on the southern end of the banks.

The residents are a special group of individuals, who fiercely defend their lifestyle.

Purchase here
 It is a 2 1/2 hour ferry ride, to reach the island, and many of the residents go years without visiting the mainland.

I appreciated their dedication to this small strip of land, 40 miles from the mainland, and am thankful they were willing to share it with me.

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!

Palette Knife Painting, Sunflower Art, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Textured Wall Art, 11x14x1.5" Oil on Canvas

Here in Appalachia, we have an over abundance, of sunflowers, and old weathered barns.  I happen to love them both.

Like so many other places, we are having a long summer, with a warmer than usual fall; resulting in a longer growing season.  But all good things come to an end, and this is "The Last Sunflower of Summer"

I was pleased with the end results, of this painting.  I hope you like it too!

Thanks for viewing!
