Just Beachy, Impressionism Seascape, Daily Painting

"Just Beachy"
11 x 14 inches
Acrylic on canvas
Started out playing around with peach colors, contrasted it with the ocean blues, and just loved the direction this painting took me. This is a fantasy painting, which I love doing because it is completely from memories of things I have experienced. This type of painting becomes less about realism and more about emotionalism.

Heaven or Hell? Impressionism Landscape

"Heaven or Hell?"
16 x 20
Acrylic on Canvas
$975.00
ready to frame

Isn't it great to know that when we make the wrong choices, even when it is on purpose, God is still faithful to lead us back in the right direction? I have taken paths that I was so sure were part of God's will, and then found myself in situations I know were not of Him. Sometimes well meaning books and pamphlets lead us down a path that seems right. But God never intended for us to work so hard to gain his approval! He already loves us. He already accepts us. We can do nothing to make ourselves acceptable. He did it all when he took human form and died for us.

I didn't finish a painting today. I just primed some boards and worked on a larger piece that has been in progress for a while. So I posted this painting that I did back in November. I just love the way the light is making him glow.

Hibiscus and Heron, Impressionism Landscape, Daily Painting

Hibiscus and Heron
9 x 12
acrylic on hardboard
Sold

I was taken by the mist and the bright contrasts. The flowers looked as if they jumped off the bush! The Great Blue Heron is not as flashy as the Great White Egrets, but they are very large, and awesome to watch on land or in the air.

Feasting Egrets, Impressionism Landscape, Daily Painting


"Feasting Egrets and Resting Woodstorks" 
12" x 16"
Acrylic on hardboard
ready to frame

We get all kinds of birds like this quite often here. Sometimes I've even seen many different types of birds all feeding together. These are mostly egrets, which come in different sizes. Great White Egrets are the largest, and the Cattle Egrets are the smallest. In-between you have Snowy Egrets and Little Blue herons, which go through a white phase and look like a white egret for a while. We also get White Ibis in this mix! The Wood Storks often sit high in the trees like they are here.

Easter Song, Impressionism Landscape, Daily Painting


"Easter Song"

8 x 10 inches
acrylic on hardboard
(ready to frame)
$650.00

Many times I have gone to the lake to watch the sunrise, Easter just makes it even more special. All the birds seem to be singing praises to thank Jesus for his perfect sacrifice.
I find it interesting that Easter is when the Jews celebrate Passover. What a correlation to Moses that Christ was crucified during Passover.
I also think God must have intended for us to have many gatherings and celebrations, His people had so many reasons for feasts! And they didn't just last for a day, They went on for a week or more!

Just playing with texture and color. I Made this painting up from memeories of the North Florida area. We saw many ranches and lovely rolling hills on our drive home.
