Spring Shoreline,colorful morning


"Spring Shoreline"
(original demo)
11x14 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This was the first of 2, painted this past April.  I created it as a guide, then did the step-by-step painting during class for the second one.  Lots of strong colors, which I love to paint.

The challenging part was getting the waves to curve on the beach,  but everyone captured it nicely.  Each painting turns out unique and different, as I encourage my students to move things around, and use their favorite colors.

Three is Not a Crowd, gumbo limbo trees, plein air painting


"Three's not a Crowd"
(Gumbo limbo trees)

Did a paintout back in March, never had a chance to post this one!  Been swamped at the studio, so that is a good thing.

This is an original plein air (created on location) from Old Fort Park in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Was interested in the odd colors and the way these trees seemed to be dancing together.  It was a lovely day.

At Riverside, Egret, Palm, Indian River, Florida


"At Riverside"
(Stuart, Florida)

Started this painting a few months ago, after taking pictures during a paint-out at Riverside Park.  I walked all over the park for an hour in the morning, soaking in all the inspiring views.

The egret was wading along the shore, and I got some pretty good photos of him catching fish.  I liked this one where he jumped up a few times.  

This palm tree was one of two jetting out over the water.  The other palm was bent and crooked, and it was hard to get a good photo.

Soul Searching, sunset, beach, Florida art


"Soul Searching"


This painting was done mostly from memory.  Added the lone woman on the beach to suggest times of reflection and questioning.  I actually saw a heart shaped cloud in the sky recently, so I added it to suggest the cool ways that Father God sends reminders of his love for us, especially when we are struggling.  Most of the time we miss it.  He sends so many people and remarkable things our way, so if we do ask, or search, we can find him.

Royal Poinciana study, Florida art


"Poinciana Study"
Original class painting
16 x 20 inches, acrylic on canvas
SOLD

Happy New Year!  

This painting was created during a class, while teaching my students how to create similar trees. We used my own photos and sketches as I demonstrated each step of the painting.  

My students are encouraged to move things around, use different colors, and add extra plants or animals to their paintings. Each painting turns out very unique.

Did you know these trees also come in yellow?

Enjoy!

Maggie Mae, yellow labrador, animal portrait

"Maggie Mae"
24 x 30 inches
Acrylic on canvas
SOLD


In  memory of Maggie.  Combined different images to put this custom painting together.  The rocks were very challenging! Wanted them to look just like the rocks on her wall.  So many wonderful contrasts: soft fur and hard rocks, pink azaleas and green grass... Yellow butterflies for added accents, just love co-creating custom orders with my clients! 

Prints, cards and gift items are available in 2 formats:

Chloe and Sweetie, macaw and green-cheek parrot


"Chloe and Sweetie"


So excited to finally get to post this!  It was a custom painting for a Christmas present, so I didn't want to spoil the surprise!

Used different photos of these two, and combined them into one setting.  Had to figure out the size relationship between them... Love the colors and simulated textures.

New Hope, Brahmans, cattle, Florida Art





"New Hope"

Painted this a couple of years ago, but didn't get to post it because I couldn't get a good image of it.  I  wanted to make it available in prints, so I tried again. (This painting includes a unique custom frame.)

I actually took pictures of this calf peeking around a tree.  The mother was a little farther away.  Took a lot of nice images of different cows and bulls as well.  Next, I sketched out some ideas before drawing this composition onto the canvas.  I added water and mist to the back ground for that foggy morning haze that is so common around here. The flowers add the feeling of spring, a time for new life and hope.

I Am, true immortal, Jesus


"I Am"
20 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

By far the Most challenging thing I have ever painted.  More than a year of work, and many tears went into this painting.

I kept thinking about the focus of Halloween: fear, death, blood, the un-dead, etc....  I thought about the one who brings love, life, forgiveness, joy, and restoration.  I'm not talking about religion or rules or tradition.  I'm talking about the man who gave us two commandments: Love God Almighty with all your mind, heart and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself.  So I wanted the focus to be on him!

"Very Truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I Am!"  John 8:58
