Meek and Powerful, Stallion, Abstract, Realism

"Meek and Powerful"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on canvas board
$875.00
I like the contrast between the abstract background with the realistic stallion. A friend of mine breeds paints, This is one of her studs. Some of her horses have one or even two blue eyes.
Meekness is not the same as weekness. This stallion willingly submits his energy and power to his master. All of that is harnessed and used for remarkable feats. It is the same for living a Christian life.

Singing the Blues, Plein Air Painting

"Singing the Blues"
(Plumbagos)
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on  hardboard


I have always felt like flowers sing their own silent song. Artists also sing silent songs. We pour out our colors and our soul for others to embrace or reject. We do not recieve the fame of singers and actors, yet we keep singing.

Enjoy!

"Lavender Dreams"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Sold

This is a fantasy painting. I've been painting in my sleep lately and lavender seems to be the thing! This is the last painting of this series. I have had so much fun painting these last four that I went out this morning and did a plein air of the blue flowers in my front yard. You can see them at: http://southernpleinairpainters.blogspot.com/ or wait and I will post them here tomorrow.

Lavender's Sway 3, Abstract Flowers, Daily Painting


" Lavender's Sway 3"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

Sold

While zooming in, I noticed how the light made these flowers look like squiggly blobs of glorious color, so I exaggerated the effect and had a blast with all that thick paint. I added the butterflies for contrast. This is one for EBSQ Art-- August Flower of the Month contest.

Lavender's Sway, Impressionism Landscape


"Lavender's Sway"
8x10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Sold
I painted this from a photo and rearranged a few things to make it into a stronger composition. I love the contrast of the bright tan hill against all that purple. I want to do some more of these plants, closer up. I really want to zoom in on them. We'll see! There is also a show coming up at (EBSQ Art) for Lavender plants, so this one should do well.
I love lavender, it has so many therapeutic uses. Did you know the oil made from it has many uses, and it has healing qualities?

The Real Deal, cowboy, daily painting

"The Real Deal"
5x7 inches
Acrylic on gessoed board
Not Available

Wanted to practice portraits. I usually struggle with getting a likeness. I built this painting up with thin layers of paint. This is a friend of mine, he is a true cowboy and has been all of his life. I tried to use colors that symbolize and emphasize his occupation. I think I captured him fairly well.

Early Prayers, Plein Air, Daily Painting

"Early Prayers"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas board

Got up extra early to beat the heat. I like to get up before everyone, and have time to myself to pray, paint something, or read. What a beautiful sunrise! I really did not do it justice. However, I do like the vines growing on the palms. I painted it alla prima (all in one session), from my back deck.

Enjoy!

Wild River Cow, Impressionism, Animal Art

" Wild River Cow"
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on gessoed board
SOLD

I am intrigued with these cows. They got stranded on an island on the Kissimmee River years ago when the Florida Water Management straightened out the river. Every two or three years a group of cowboys would get together and try to round them up. These are animals that know nothing about a round up! Very dangerous.

Breezy Blue,Impressionism Wildlife, Heron

"Breezy Blue"
8.5 x 4 inches
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper
Not Available

I like the tension: feels like the great blue heron is about to take off because he is looking away and placed near the edge of the painting. This is something Robert Bateman does quite often in his work, to add more interest and movement.
This is a wonderful 'off-size,' which is perfect for a hard to fill space on a wall. However, I like to remind my clients when purchasing these off-size originals that they usually have to be custom framed.

Sunny Days, Impressionism Flowers,Daily Painting

"Sunny Days"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on gessoed board
SOLD

I love the almost abstract feel to this little painting. I wanted to make one of the dandelions look like a kid's sun in the corner of their picture. Even my high school students wanted to paint the sun in the corner of their pictures! It drove me crazy trying to explain why that isn't such a good idea: on top of a green sky when they added the blue near the yellow sun, we had very silly cartoon looking suns in the corner of a very nice landscape! So here is to my kids! Smile.

Just wanted to paint an abstract. I believe we are all on a journey, and we can believe the lies or really search for the truth. The truth is found when we really seek it.

Rough Water, Wildlife, Realism, Pelican

"Rough Water (Pelican)"
11 x 14 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
SOLD

I created this painting a few years ago-- from some photos I took at the Fort Pierce inlet. It began as a palette knife painting. But then I got into the brush work applied over the cool textures that the knife made. I love the hard rocks against the feathers, and all of that against the moving water. I wanted to make all those contrasts stand out. This is one of those paintings that I just got carried away with and kept adding more and more detail.

Send Your Rain, Impressionism Landscape

"Send Your Rain"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
SOLD

What an answer to prayer to see these storms coming everyday now! The water level is up 10" at Lake Okeechobee!
These tall dead trees against the foreboding sky really caught my attention. I wanted to catch that feeling of knowing you are about to get soaked if you don't find shelter!

Nubbin's Shore, Plein Air Painting

"Nubbin's Shore"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas board
$450.00

I think this Nubbin's Slough area appeals me for two reasons: first, we have never had a shore line here before, just water splashing up on rocks; second, I know we may never see this shore line again when the drought is over. We have had a little rain here and there, but it has only brought the water up a few inches.
