Forsaking All Others, pointillism of a red rose


"Forsaking All Others"
18" x 24"
ink, pointillism

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college.  I just made it available in print.  It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots.  Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times.  Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.

Heaven's Touch, girl riding a horse at sunset on a beach


"Heaven's Touch"



I did this large painting a few years ago, and now I just made it available in print.  It combines many thoughts and memories from many places.   Poured myself into it for a few months. Created entirely from memory!  Love the way it came together.

Here is what I originally wrote about it:
I have been working on this painting off and on for almost a year now. It is all about contrasts and texture, as far as the technical aspects go.

This painting is far reaching too. Emotionally we all have things that need healing. Sometimes a sunrise or a sunset, a cup of coffee with a friend, or a moment of silence can touch us deeper than anything else at that time. This painting combines some of those ideas: dreams I have had, horses I have ridden, and prayers cried out from the depth of my soul in my most turbulent times. Always God reaches out and heals the hurt a little more.

Butterfly Garden, plein air painting

"Butterfly Garden"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Sold


Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall.  It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it.  This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush!  She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing.  Too cute!

Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!

Winter Marsh, Lake, egrets


"Winter Marsh"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
$675.00

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.

Prairie Does, wildlife art


"Prairie Does"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic
$850.00

This one is actually titled "Paines Prairie" but I changed the title on the prints, which I thought was funny (instead of prairie dogs).
This painting has a lot more than meets the eye because of the memories that go with it.  

I was at a Plein Air (out doors) workshop in Gainesville, Florida and these deer jumped out at different sides of the field.  They were very fast! I got a few good pictures and add-libbed the rest after I got home to work to my warm studio.  There was ice and frost on the palm trees that morning, and it only warmed up to about 40 degrees through the day! My little windbreaker jacket was not near enough to keep the cold wind out, but I stuck with it.

"Family Reunion"
16 x 20 inches
Acrylic on canvas
SOLD

Pretty much made this painting up.  Started with a cool photo of the tree laying down, which I had painted once before in its original setting.  I changed the sky from gray to sunset, and added the tall pines from other photos of the area. I saw tons of sandhill cranes gathering in a pasture and loved the idea of putting them in this painting, so I added the water and the cranes for more interest.

The original is sold, but you can click here for prints of this image in a variety of sizes!

House of Refuge Beach, rocky shore

"House of Refuge Beach"

Created this painting from photos I took at the paint-out a couple of weeks ago. It was stormy and windy in the morning when we got there, and by the time we were leaving it all cleared up! This was the scene I originally wanted to paint.  The little bird in the rocks was running up and down the the rocks searching for lunch!

The lookout tower and the House of Refuge museum is located to the left of this area. 

Enjoy!

Shore of Refuge, plein aire painting



"Shore of Refuge"

Got to go out on a paint-out last week.  It was windy and cold, so we painted under a pavilion on the inter coastal side (at the House of Refuge) instead of the actual beach.  Tried to capture the feeling of stormy weather, with the sun breaking through.  By the time I finished up, the sun came out and it was absolutely beautiful! I have one in progress from the photos I took on the ocean side of this area.  It looks like completely different days!

Enjoy!

Waiting Orders, guardian angel

"Waiting Orders"

Painted this angel with a brush instead of a palette knife this time.  Wanted a softer look.  Love the color scheme.

I wanted him to look like he was finished with one assignment and waiting for the next.  I have always thought that I must have some very serious warrior angels looking out for me! 

This small painting is done on cradled hardboard, the sides are painted, so framing is optional.

Enjoy!
