At the Edge, mixed media, blue heron

"At the Edge" (Lake Okeechobee)

© 2020

Original Mixed Media 





A few years ago, I did some plein air studies during a drought at Nubbin's Slough.  This experimental painting came from those studies.  Here I used paper-clay for the rocks.  (Paper fibers are added to the clay for more strength).  These hand sculpted rocks have a cool looking 3-D effect.  I also enjoyed building up the weeds with gel medium to create interesting patterns of texture.  

I hid some angels in the sky and used tiny brushes for the distant birds and extra details.


9 x 12 inches

Custom wood frame (see below)

225.00 plus shipping


This painting is also available at Unique Boutique, Okeechobee Florida!

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

Big Lake Sunset, knife landscape painting


"Big Lake Sunset"

This is an older painting. I did it alla prima, or all at once, it is of Lake Okeechobee.  I truly love the texture and color that is unique to knife paintings.  Some of my students are doing palette knife beach scenes right now, so I wanted to post this one in response to what we are doing in class.

Winter Marsh, Lake, egrets


"Winter Marsh"
9 x 12 inches

This painting is simple, but effective. I captured the feeling I was after: cooler weather and the fleeting moment of birds rushing off out of sight.  I love working in this impressionistic style too. This is an older painting that I have just made available in print.

Unclaimed Trophy, bass catching a dragonfly


"Unclaimed Trophy"

Actually painted this a couple of years ago.  Could not get the photography of the painting to come close to the painting, but this image is very close to the original.  (Of course monitors vary from computer to computer, but it should be a close representation. ) 

This was a very challenging commissioned piece.  I took pictures of my husband's stuffed trophy fish (he has 3 on the wall) to get the main idea, but I wanted the tail to flip, so I had to draw several sketches before I got it just right.   I also used pictures I had taken of our many trips out on Lake Okeechobee to add the lily pads. took me a few weeks just to get the composition drawn up on sketching paper! I free-handed it onto the canvas once I knew what I wanted.

 I have painted things under the water, but this was a first for something jumping up out of the water!  The splash and spray would get much to much and I had to take it out and try again.  In the end I decided I liked the effect and finally left it as it is. 

I have just made this image available in greeting cards and prints!

Returning Thanks, wildlife art, blue heron

"RETURNING THANKS"

I did around ten of these runny and drippy paintings.  They are done with acrylics on canvas, at a standing easel, so all the paint runs down.  It's a messy and fast application of layers of paint. Then I add the details over that once it is dry, so the contrast of warm and cool colors is played up against the contrasting thin against thick paint.  It has to be sealed with a few coats of clear sealer because the integrity of the paint has been jeopardized.  

Just made this older painting available in prints and cards. You can order what ever size you want.

Moving On, sunset, landscape, rim canal

"Moving On"


Started as a demo with distant hills and a large lake. I went back later and turned the hills into the dike around Lake Okeechobee. Completely made this up from memory. Then I added the rocky shore, palm tree, and birds. Finally I made the alligator swimming in the canal.

Morning's Song, lake landscape, egret

"Morning's Song"


About This Painting:
Took pictures of this great egret on a foggy morning while I was at Lake Okeechobee. We were in a drought and the grasses and weeds had taken over. This whole area was usually under water! I was attracted to the contrast of the orange bushes and the green grasses.

Ready to frame.

G-36, Lake Okeechobbe canal, landscape

"G-36, Lake Okeechobee canal"




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!

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.

Ready to frame.

Egret study, palette knife painting

"Egret study"


About This Painting:
I am starting a larger painting that is similar to this. Just playing with different ideas, and working on the color scheme. I love using the palette knife for the texture too, but the larger painting will be done in a different style. I saw a lot of egrets and great blue herons at the lake the other day, and the weeds were all different colors. The birds got lost in it all, and the photos didn't turn out very good, so I tried to make improvements in this painting!
Ready to frame.

Size: 6 in X 6 in (15.2 cm X 15.2 cm)

Fishing the Edge, wildlife art, heron


"Fishing the Edge"

About This Painting:
This tri-colored heron stayed with us on the rim canal a couple of weeks ago. We were fishing along the edge and he was too! But, he caught way more than we did. He would fly up ahead a little and walk the shore. It was fun to watch him look back at us again and again, almost like he was saying, "Hey, do you mind?'
I took some photos of him, along with a huge alligator and many other birds. I may have a few more paintings of that day to work on! It was our first trip out since Robert's surgery last November. He did fine, so now if he goes out on his own I know it will be alright. (He has been known to take off fishing alone many times in the past, even though he knows he shouldn't.)

Big Lake Sunset, palette knife painting

"Big Lake Sunset"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard


I am getting fond of the palette knife, I love the texture it creates! This painting was done alla prima, or all at once, to get that thick overlapping quality. It is often the goal, but seldom happens that way.  Painting over dry paint doesn't give the same mixtures of color.
I got out for a walk at the lake a few days ago, and took some nice pictures of the sunset. The sun had just slipped down below the water, so the colors were still bright and inspiring.

Thanks for looking!

On the Rise, Lake sunset with birds


"On the Rise"
8 x 10 inches
acrylic on hardboard
ready to frame
$750.00


Went down to the lake yesterday. For the first time in over two years you can see water under the pier! Boat ramps are working and the locks are open too! The best part is that birds are everywhere by the hundreds.

I did this painting from memory, it is one of my favorite spots. The patchy area used to be under water a few years ago, and now it looks like the water is trying to cover all the weeds again.

It did my heart good to see the water level on the rise again, so I just wanted to share it.
Enjoy!
