Up The Creek, Impressionism, Daily Painting



Title: "Up the Creek"
Size: 9 x 12 inches
Medium: Acrylic on Ampersand gessobord

Sold

This was created from one of my photos of Taylor Creek.
I love the reflections and the colors. I keep wanting to turn the painting over! Started to add some birds, tell me what you think. I think it may take away from the reflection, which is the main point of the painting. But I could add them, or one just in the reflection, that sounds cool. Ran out of time today, we went fishing. Perfect day.

Rocks and Water, Impressionism,Daily Painting, Seascape


Title: "Rocks and Water"

Size: 9 x 12 inches

Medium: Acrylic on Ampersand gessobord
Price: $750.00





This is actually the third in a series. The first was
"Never Ending" The second was "Rocks and Waves" (yesterdays blog) and this is just a closer look at the same area. I wasn't satisfied with yesterdays painting, so I tried again today. I really got what I was after! Movement, contrast, and that loose painterly effect that I love. I tend to smooth out my brush strokes and add extra detail. It still looks alright, but I love it when I can capture the brush strokes too.

Brahman Bull, Daily Pinting, Impressionism,Animals


9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on Ampersand gessobord

SOLD


Brahmas used to be the main type of cattle around here. They are hearty and can withstand the hot weather. some of the cows will eat the oranges that fall on the ground, it is funny to watch them wrinkle up their nose and slobber all over the place!

Never Ending, Daily Painting, Impressionist Seascape


9 x12 inches

Acrylic on archival Ampersand gessobord
Not Available

This is near the bathtub beach in Stuart, Florida. It is one of my favorite beaches because it reminds me of the Pacific islands. (I lived in Hawaii and Guam as a teenager.) Haven't found too many Atlantic beaches with such an interesting rocky shore. I love the shapes in the rocks set against the moving water!

Running Over (daily painting, surrealism)


Studio Painting
9 x12 inches
Acrylic on Gesobord
$725.00


Just letting my mind wonder a little. I really love this concept, and the odd way the water is running over even though there is no flow into it. Combined a couple of different ideas with some photos to come up with this one. Makes me think of the Bible verse that says "my cup runneth over."

Quiet Time (Daily painting, landscape)




9 x12 inches


Acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord
(archival)
$675.00

This was an experimental painting. I used a subtractive method. First I stained the board with light warm tones, and let it dry. Then I added the dark colors and I wiped out the tree trunks with a small brush. So thefirst part was done with very thin paint. Then I loaded up the brush with thick paint for the leaves and the reflections. I have to admit, it took a couple of tries, but I like the mood it left behind.

Great White Egret (Daily Painting, wildlife)




9x12
Acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord
Sold



This egret kept following our boat around. I guess he was quite a ham! I ended up with a lot of blurred and cropped images. But this one turned out nice. I made up the reflection, and exagerated the reeds. This really emphasizes the egret.

Amazing story. I paintind this filly in some of my paintings, at least a similar looking foal. Then I saw her at an auction, and bought her! She was just a yearling then. I named her Misty Dawn. About 6 months later My check still had not cleared. When I called the establishment they informed me that they closed down the business. The check never did get cashed! Misty was a a great gift!
