To the River, Boy going fishing

"To the River"


About This Painting:
A little boy in a red shirt headed out fishing . . . I was interested in the colors of the sandy road when I took the pictures. I added the boy for a focal point. I started with very impressionistic strokes and a 'Van Gogh' kind of look, but as I so often do, I added more detail and lost some of that feeling. I still like it though.
Enjoy!
Ready to frame.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)

Oak Study, Plein Air Painting

"Oak Study"


About This Painting:
I went to the coast and painted with my plein air group today. (Worked on location outside.) This old oak blew over years ago. The way it grew back interested me because of its very graceful shape. If I use it for a larger painting I will add a muddy bank and some water and a rope swing hanging over the water, now that sounds fun!
Ready to frame.

Garden Stream




"Garden Stream"



About This Painting:
I started with the palette knife, but got to adding more detail with a brush. This painting was not working out so well at first, so I reworked it for a better composition. This was done by toning down some of the bright colors that were in the foreground. That pushed the focal point onto the red flowers in the middle ground, which is what I wanted. I also added more sky in the trees. I just love the stained glass effect that came about in the trees.


Ready to frame.

Purity, palette knife floral


"Purity"

About This Painting:
This little palette knife painting was done alla prima, or all in one session. This causes the thick paint to mix colors in interesting ways, as the paint is applied wet over wet. This technique is fast and fun to do. I also love the abstract quality and the texture that it creates.
Ready to frame.

Wildflower Clusters

"Wildflower Clusters"


About This Painting:
These wildflowers out by the fence really caught my eye. I was interested in the variety of bright colors. Pink, orange, yellow, and white all right next to each other. I used the dark background to set it all off.
The painting continues on the sides, no need for framing.

Spring's Dawn


"Spring's Dawn"


About This Painting:
Painted this one from memory. Used thick, loose, impressionistic brush strokes -- too much fun.

I see this old oak tree often, as we drive into town. Once all the vegetation grows in thickly again, the water will become very hard to see. But right now it can look so blue it seems fake. The dark branches just add to the effect. So I thought I would try to capture it in a painting.
