Late Winter, palette knife landscape

"Late Winter"


About This Painting:
This was actually a class demonstration, then I repainted it as a palette knife painting when I got it home. I added the palm trees and the reeds along with the birds after I built up the texture with a knife. I was thinking about the day I spent at the Adam's Ranch a couple of weeks ago. We get fall colors in the winter here in Southern Florida. So the colors of winter are still prevalent, even when the warmer spring weather arrives.


Enjoy!

Second Look, plein air Florida landscape

"Second Look"


This is the third painting I did at the Adams Ranch a little more than a week ago. I had packed up most of my gear, and then looked back at this view from the other side of the path before I loaded up my easel. I was tired and ready to leave, but it was so beautiful, and I wanted to at least get this one started. So i went back and unloaded everything! Got a great lay-in, and almost finished it on location...... I touched up a few things and added a little more detail when I got home. I just love the way it turned out! They don't all go so well.


This is the right side of the path I posted last week. The spring actually runs all the way around the little hill in that painting (End of the Road).


Enjoy!

End of the Road, Florida landscape with natural springs

"End of the Road"


Plein air painting I did at the Adams Ranch for Saturday's paint-out. The water actually runs all the way around the little hill. These natural springs are all over the ranch. Some of them have a sulfur smell to them, but this one didn't. The kite birds kept swooping down in front of me, and I was able to get some pretty good photos of them. It was cool and breezy too. What a perfect morning!

Enjoy!

Summer Sunset, lake demo landscape

"Summer Sunset"


Fun little demonstration for one of my art classes last week. It was a study on trees and water. I darkened the shadows and added more detail yesterday.


Many of my demos end up sanded down and painted over so I can re-use the board for the next class, but sometimes they just need a little more time and detail to be a very nice finished piece. I have started using my professional paints and materials when I do demos, instead of the student grade paints and supports. This gives me the option to touch them up and offer them for sale, or use them for fund-raisers and gifts.

Rising Up, seagull at sunrise

"Rising Up"




Painted this one a while ago from photos I took at the Fort Pierce Inlet. It was early morning, the wind was blowing so hard that the gulls could hardly fly at all. It reminded me how God helps us rise above the turmoil of life and always gives us a chance to start over with each new day.



Note cards and prints now available!
