Beach Dreams 16

6″ x 6″ Oil

Looking back over my photographs taken from

last beach trip,

the dazzling white sand and blue shadows caught my eye.

And I just had to paint it.

Starting to pack for my next beach trip.

Cute Doggie

8″ x 10″ Oil, Not For Sale

I love doing pet commissions!

This one I had to re-do completely,

which was momentarily frustrating,

but am so happy with the final result.

This painting was commissioned by someone

who is surprising her friend

with this portrait as a gift.
Please consider having me paint your pet

or a loved one’s pet.

Daffodil Trio

IMG_0774 (1).jpg

Oil, 6″ x 8″

Lately I’ve been thinking more about

the structure of specific flowers,

as well as the way light falls on my subjects.

Composition is always uppermost in my mind,

and I want to give the background some interest.

I love the neutral foil to the bright blooms.

Orange and Blue

8″ x 10″ Oil

For me drawing is a discipline. I want to get right into color.

And so I struggle with proportions and symmetry.

I practice those elements with cups and saucers because

the proportions are different every time,

and these are symmetrical objects.

Just in case you wonder why I do so many cups and saucers.

Irma’s Gift

8″ x 8″ Oil

Last September I experienced Hurricane Irma

up close and personally.

We were without power for a few days,

but fortunately had flashlights and water,

so we were fine.

After the hurricane, the beach was a treasure trove.

We found several large conch shells

unlike any I’d ever found.

Painting it was challenging and gratifying.

Something that was brought up from the deeps

had amazing color, shape, texture, and subtlety.

Red Tulips

11″ x 14″ Oil

Having experimented with dramatic lighting for the past two weeks,

I painted one that fits the bill for me.

The rich red tulips, the light catching the yellow-green of their stems,

and the touches of red in the background and foreground

work together in a way that pleases me.

Tiny Bouquet

5″ x 7″ Oil

After painting several versions of this set-up,

I hope I’ve learned a thing or two about composition

and reflective surfaces.

Sunset

Oil, 18″ x 24″

Just finished today, this landscape is all about the sunset

and the sky color peeking out from behind the clouds.

I enjoyed bringing this painting together:

the colors and shapes of clouds, the silhouette of the trees,

the depiction of the end of day.
