Heaven's Joy, seascape angel at sunset

"Heaven's Joy"



About This Painting:
This is another one I did on watercolor paper. It is a harder support to work on, but nice for framing because it can be easily matted and put behind glass, even trimmed some if needed.

I painted the landscape from memories of Guam. We always had fantastic sunsets with intense colors. I added the angel for wishes of Joy.

Enjoy!

No Bites, water with bobber

"No bites"


About This Painting:
I truly love the abstract quality of this one! Did this a few years ago; had way too much fun painting the rhythm of the water. Not sure if it is realism, abstraction, or impressionism, so I guess you will have to let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

Julia's Angel, palette knife painting

"Julia's Angel"


About This Painting:

This is a combination of "Endless Hope" and "Healing Hymns." I love the flow and the energy that came across in this painting. The palette knife seems to add that extra sparkle that is so well suited for these angel paintings.

This is one of the first plein air paintings I did with a palette knife. I always liked the way it turned out. It was very windy that day, which added to the challenge. I felt quite proud of myself for finishing it!

Otter Creek 2, landscape, old tree, Spanish moss

"Otter Creek 2"



About This Painting:
This area gets so over grown that you can hardly see the little creek! I love the tree though. I used to live near this creek, and took long walks to get pictures in the evening sun. There is a field of dead oaks just to the left of this area, looks like a spooky movie with all the moss hanging off of the trees. (Did this one from photos a few years ago. )

Abstract Hibiscus, sunlit flower

"Abstract Hibiscus"


About This Painting:
Thick brushstrokes, alla prima (painted in one session). Lively impressionistic painting. I like the distorted and abstract feeling this has. It is a take off of the one I did called "Out Front" which is quite realistic. I wanted to capture the light dancing around the leaves this time. Very fun to paint the whole thing all at once, gives it the wet-in-wet look of an oil painting.

Ready to frame.

One of Linda's Angels, palette knife painting

"One of Linda's Angels"


I believe we all have lots of angels looking out for us. Linda must have hundreds, because she was in a terrible wreck that she should not have survived. Her car was crushed by a big truck.

This painting is a reminder of the power of God to touch our lives and heal us, we just have to ask.

Gentle Song Again, palette knife painting

"Gentle Song Again"



This is a smaller one from the same area as the 8x10 painting "Gentle Song" that I did a month or so ago. I wanted to blur the background a bit, and then try to get the rocks and water to show some areas in sunlight and some in shadow.

This painting is all about contrast. I like the contrast of the light and dark values, but the cool and warm tones make a different kind of contrast too. I am also intrigued by the contrast of the flowing and moving water against the harsh rocks. The palette knife lends itself well to the abstract look of the rocks, and it emphasizes the movement in the water too.

Rocks and Water, seascape rocky shore

"Rocks and Water"


Been out of town a lot lately, so I am posting this one from when I first began doing my daily studies. I still paint most everyday, but not as many small studies. I am doing more commissions and larger paintings based on these small ones.


This is one of a series of three. I really love the abstract shapes in the rocks, as well as the impressionistic look of the splash. Very fun to paint.

painting give-away!

I am planning to have a drawing for a free painting at the end of this month. I'll even pay for shipping! If you want to be included, then send me a first and second choice painting (in case the first one sells before the drawing.) The painting must be priced at $150.00 or less.

See the side-bar of this blog for some of the paintings to choose from, of course I haven't gotten them all listed, but it might help you to decide if you don't have to search through all of the posts.

My friend has a 6 year old daughter that paints with me, and she will pick the winner out of a bowl! Sounds like fun to me!

Creation Sings, Montana landscape, Kootenai Falls

"Creation Sings"



About This Painting:

Did this one years ago. I used to sit here by the Kootenai Falls, in Libby Montana and watch the water roar. There is a swinging bridge that is very scary to cross just down stream from this spot. Sometimes I really miss my family and the beauty of the mountains.

It took me months to paint this large realistic painting!

The Cave, hidden cabin, plein air at EdenLawn

"The Cave"


About This Painting:
From a paint-out at EdenLawn, in Jensen Beach. This little cabin is nicknamed "the cave" because it has always been overgrown with trees and plants. I love the blue door and the way the cabin is hidden in all the foliage.


Eden Lawn was originally a pineapple plantation. Then it was a place to rent cabins, with a pool and a fancy restaurant. Now it is under renovation, and has some very interesting old houses and cabins.

Back at White City Park, just can't get over how beautiful it is! Felt like I was part of a fairytale, so I used purple and blue to get started, which gives it that enchanted feeling.

Baby Doll, little girl, ballerina

"Baby Doll"


Reworked this older painting, made a few corrections and softened some of the shadows. I named it "Baby Doll" because the whole time I was working on it I kept thinking 'she looks just like a baby doll...'

I took pictures of this little girl dancing around before the performance at an outdoor art festival. She looks a lot like one of my art students, who takes dance lessons with the same studio that performs at the festival. So I asked her mother about it and she said it could be her! I took these pictures more than 3 years ago, so that puts her at the right age too. Isn't that cool?

Cypress Shores 2, Florida landscape, wildlife, great egret

"Cypress Shores 2"


This started as a study of the cypress trees again. I love the negative spaces in the trees. They remind me of Christmas ornaments. I got a few good pictures of this great white egret as it kept flying ahead of our boat while we were fishing a few days ago. We went out in the evening this last time.

I wanted to use a brush instead of a knife this time. I tried to exaggerate the impressionistic look of the brush work in the clouds and the trees, and the water, and still get it to look fairly realistic.

This painting is composed from memory mostly. I made up the clouds, used my photos for the tree line, and used the photos of the egret to add him in last. I love working this way, free-handing the whole thing as I go. Leaves lots of room for changes and imagination.

Cypress Shores, landscape with egret and alligator

"Cypress Shores"

Painted this palette knife painting from memory, from a fishing trip we went on last week. There were so many birds and alligators that I just had to add them, but the painting was really about the interesting shapes the cypress trees made with the morning sky showing through them.
The palette knife texture is thick and the colors are strong, I even like the way the contrast turned out this time.

Heaven's Answer, palette knife angel

"Heaven's Answer"

I really wanted to emphasize that the focus is not on angels, they are God's messengers, they always remind us of Christ. The fallen angels will show up as lost loved ones and try to keep us from moving on. They will do anything to keep our focus off of our hope. If we aren't careful we can forget where our thoughts and prayers should be.
God asks us in His Holy Word not to grieve as those with no hope. We have the hope of a great reunion because Jesus gave his life for us. The Bible also tells us to count our trials as joy (in the book of James), and also to look ahead and not behind (Hebrews 12 and Luke 9). With His strength, and his power we can do the things he asks. Believe me, it is not easy! If you haven't asked Jesus in your life, then that is the way to find this inner strength and power that He wants to give to you.

Feel free to email me, if you have any questions!

Bear Side, fall scene, mountain landscape

"Bear Side"



About This Painting:
Tried another palette knife painting on gallery wrap canvas. The painting continues on the deep sides, so framing not needed.


Painted this one from memory. When I get to go back home to visit my family in Montana and Washington State, I take lots of pictures, especially if we go up in The Rockies. My older brother lives near Glacier National Park now, so I love staying at his house!


Instead of using my photographs, I just made this one up as I went along. It was fun to change, add, and rearrange things until I found this composition, which I think is very strong because of the diagonal lines and the bright colors. I added the little bear near the tree line, because I always see deer, or bear, or something, every time I go back!

Early Fall, mountain landscape with a stream

"Early Fall"

This painting started as a palette knife demonstration, then I added more details and color when I got home. The palette knife is perfect for water because it creates a sparkling effect. Let the paint dry and gently add the bright color over the top and the texture underneath grabs the bright colors....really fun to do.
Enjoy!

Stormy Sunset, skyscape, clouds, landscape


"Stormy Sunset"


Fun little palette knife painting. It has a somewhat abstract feel to it. I saw these very blue clouds against the stormy purple sky while I took my walk a few nights ago. It had just rained and the sun was going down, and the colors were changing fast all over the sky! I had to come home and paint it!

This little painting is on gallery wrap canvas, so the sides are deep and the painting wraps around the edges. It has a contemporary look to it. The canvas adds a grainy texture to it, plus it has the palette knife textures.
This painting continues on the edges, so framing is not needed.

Heavenly Hope, palette knife angel

"Heavenly Hope"


This angel reminds us that our hope is found in Jesus Christ. When we look to the cross and get our eyes off of ourselves, then we can find peace of mind and joy.
Joy doesn't mean that we have no pain, or that we are laughing and silly all the time, it just means that we are content and can accept the trials that come our way. We can thank our Father God and worship Him even in the midst of the trials. This is not for wimps! It is very hard to get your eyes off of what others have done to hurt you and forgive them, and it is very hard to sing and praise God when everything around you seems to be going wrong. Yet God asks us to trust him and believe that he will work it out for our good in the end. (James 1:2-4 and Romans 8:28)
