This is a 6x8" oil worked with both brush and palette knife. I love water and have always wanted to have a water view from my home. This would be my perfect little place.
These are three 6x8" marsh landscapes from Amelia Island in northern Florida. They were commissioned pieces that brought back happy memories for me.
Many artists do not enjoy commission work. The idea you see in your mind may not be the same vision your client has, which makes it difficult. I however, enjoy the challenge.

This is off subject, but I want to take a moment to celebrate my granddaughter and her many years of hard work.
Courtney is graduating from medical school in a few weeks and has been awarded a residency in OB/GYN at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.
Mayo in Rochester is the number one rated hospital in the world, and they only had five OB/GYN residency openings.
I am so proud of my granddaughter, the doctor, and know she will treat her patients with compassion and dedication. CONGRATULATIONS to her and her wonderful Mom!

Thanks for reading my blog today.
Years ago, I painted a dolphin after visiting the Florida Keys. When our local art club announced a contest, I decided to enter.
The idea was to submit a design that could be re-created as a mosaic, which would then be embedded in the sidewalk of the local art district.
Since I live on the coast of Florida, I thought this dolphin painting would be perfect. Apparently I was correct because I won the contest.
I have never attempted mosaic but have always had a desire to try. Now I will be working with an accomplished mosaic artist to complete my mosaic. The idea that it will be embedded in the sidewalk for hopefully many years is very appealing to me. Wish me luck as I attempt this new procedure.

I was driving through rural Georgia when the sun came up over the horizon and provided me with this beautiful sight.
The 1.5" sides of the stretched canvas are painted black allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.
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!
I have been struggling with my painting, for a full year now. I have never been able to establish a routine in the studio, since we packed our bags, and moved to the mountains. I thought I was over painting. I found no joy in it. In fact, everything I struggled to paint, seemed more like a duty and I found it frustrating.
But now, we have been back at the beach for three months. It took awhile. First the holidays got in the way, but after the first of the year, I started to regain my love of spending my days in the studio.
Maybe it was the inspiration of the long walks on the beach, or maybe it was being back with my art buddies again. Whatever..........I am thrilled and anxious to smear paint across canvas again!
