Early Joy, sunrise seascape, inspirational art



"Early Joy"
10 x16 inches
Acrylic on canvas
$500.00

Finished!   I had suggestions to add dolphins and angels..... decided not to add birds this time, as I didn't want to take away from the suggestion of an angel in the light source.

Yellow is symbolic of joy, and orange is warm and inviting.  Pinks and blues are calming and peaceful.  This painting goes out with prayers for emotional healing, restoration, and joy.

Early Light, seascape in progress


"Early Light"
10 x16 inches
Acrylic on canvas
$500.00

Love this one already!  Not sure how much more I will do to it, but I want to add more of a beach with some waves.  Needs some birds too.  Open to suggestions! 

Had my granddaughters this past week, and we painted together.  We all painted a sunset/ sunrise from a photo my older granddaughter had taken.  We added more pink and less gray.  The girls added a hill at the bottom, and I reflected the colors in the water instead.

Next Morning, Florida landscape


"Next Morning"
Acrylic on canvas board 
original  8 x 10 inches
$350.00

Finished up an old one that I had in the studio for a while.  Added mist and the nice little sunlit trees in the distance.  This started as a plein air painting, but I have rearranged everything and added the pond.  Like it much better!

I'm also working on getting stronger focal points, with a nice lead into the painting.  I think I achieved that goal this time.

From the Depths, inspirational art, seascape


"From the Depths"
20 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas
$750.00 (plus shipping)

This is the original idea I did for a much larger (30 x 40) demonstration for a worship service, which was awesome to be a part of!  

The painting changed drastically.  It started with negative words, as I struggled with doing things out of my comfort zone.  I wrote "Too Hard"  instead of "Hurts" during the worship service.  




As the Lord encouraged me that I can trust him to show me the way, I painted the cross and lifted the girls head, and arms.  As my soul let go of the fear, the water also calmed in the painting.  The light of the cross began to wipe out the negative words. 




The grass and flowers started growing, and the girl went to her knees.  So did I!  Tears slipped out and I continued with adding the path down the cliff.  This path was part of a vision I had a while ago, but now it was becoming clear that my Heavenly Father has new directions for me, if I will accept it. This has been a powerful symbolic painting from the depths of my soul.  I hope it inspires you also!

Rainy Day Angel, knife painting


"Rainy Day Angel" © 2008
Palette Knife Painting
Acrylic on hardboard 
8 x 10 inches,
SOLD

Thinking about doing this one again, larger, maybe reverse the angel and change up the colors.  I love the way the energy is reflecting in the rain.  This painting goes with the moods I have been in lately. So many ups and downs this past month.  Wonderful opportunities in the midst of some sad situations.  I feel like the Good Lord has sent angels to help me find my way lately.

If you are interested in something similar, I would love to create it with you! We can use your color scheme, add clouds, and/or less rain....

Garden Falls, plein air, stone path


"Garden Falls"
Acrylic on hardboard
9 x 12 inches
$450.00

Got to do a paint out yesterday in Fort Pierce, at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens.  This little waterfall called my name!  It was a lovely day.
 I added quite a bit of detail after I got it home, as it took longer than I anticipated to finish it and proved to be quite challenging. 

Enjoy!

Over the Dike, Lake Okeechobee, Florida Art

 "Over the Dike"  
9 x 12 inches, 
Acrylic on hardboard
©2006     $350.00

Here is another older one of the Lake.  Below is a comparison to the same area (lock G36) when we had a drought for a couple of years.  I was fascinated with the new bright greens that showed up more and more as the water receded.  Haven't seen anything close to that since.

In the Morning, Lake Okeechobee


"In The Morning"  © 2007 
Acrylic   12 x 16
Sold

Had a request for paintings of  Lake Okeechobee.  I have done a lot of them, but it has been a while.  This one is probably my favorite of all of the lake paintings I have done over the past 30 years.  Hard to believe I have been here that many years! (I moved 15 times as a child and 5 times as a young adult.)  I guess I wanted to settle down, ha ha ha! 

As I painted it, I was singing a song that has this verse in it: "Oh Lord in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up . . ." Psalm 5:3

Easy does It, Florida Art, palms, turtle, gator



"Easy Does It"

Love the little turtle on the trunk of the closer palm and the birds in the dead tree. I was inspired to paint this while out on a fishing trip.  It is cool how the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. Cycles of life are so fragile, and so evident.

Enjoy!

Winter Marsh, Florida landscape with egrets


"Winter Marsh"

This is an old favorite.  Something about it speaks to me.  Florida winters give way to some fall colors, and the memory of this day is windy and cold.  Well, cold for us is in the 40's, but still, it is a nice change from the normal humid air.  I also like the way the birds are flying out of the picture, you get the sense that they will be gone in a moment.

Great Egret, knife painting


Great Egret,  class demo
9 x 12 inches, acrylic knife painting.
(Not Available)


Donated this painting for one of our raffles for the 
Top of the Lake Art Fest,
 as part of a fund raiser for Okeechobee Main Street, 
who puts on the show every year.

This demo painting for my adult class did not start as a knife painting.  We used brushes as I demonstrated each step.  Then I added more detail to finish it up later and got carried away with the thick chunky paint (using a palette knife) for the bark on the tree.  Did more knife work to the rest of the painting also.  But I used a brush for the soft feathers of the egret, and the flowers.  Love the contrast of the thick and thin applications of paint.

Congrats to Gloria Pitsch for winning this painting!

Healed, inspirational art, beach, girl, angel


"Healed"

Started this painting completely from memory. Made it up as I went along.  (Used reference photos of different children to free-hand the girl onto the painting.) 

This is all about inner healing, accepting yourself, forgiving yourself, and letting go of the past.  But, sometimes we have to deal with the issues and do the hard work to get past it, which this painting really did for me as I struggled with my stormy past.

Lots of symbolism:  The shadow of the cross, the face of Jesus in the sand, a dove hidden in the wave near her head (for the Holy Spirit), an angel dancing in the clouds, the heart shape encircling her, and the storm moving away.

Kitty Cat, class demo, pets


"Kitty Cat"
(original class demo)

This was a fun example for my kid's class.  Students did a realistic drawing of an animal up close (free hand): bunnies, cats, puppies, birds, lion cub, fox, etc... Then we transferred it to watercolor paper drawing very lightly with pencil.   We used pen and ink to exaggerate the details before adding fun and/or strange colors with watercolors!  They turned out great!

I have a show coming up Saturday the 28th of January in Sebring, Florida. I'll be indoors at the agricultural center on Hwy 27, south of town.  It is sponsored by the Lake Placid Art league.  Hope you will come see me!  I'll have some reduced prices and they give away door prizes from the artists every thirty minutes!

Fond Memories, horses, mountain landscape


"Fond Memories"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Just updated this image for prints and gifts!

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too.   I added less mud and more water to clean it up.
