Tree Tops, sunlit trees

This is an older painting that I have always been fond of. I was intrigued with the many shades of cool and warm green and how the light seemed to dance on the leaves.


Enjoy!

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.

Enjoy!

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.

Enjoy!

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.

Thanks for looking!

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.


Enjoy!

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! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Not for sale.

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.


Thanks for looking!
