"Touch of Gold"

"Touch of Gold"
8" x 10"
Palette knife painting of a South Carolina Marsh

So happy that this palette knife painting sold.  I love to use my palette knife when I do marsh scenes.  I feel like I can get clear crisp color using a palette knife.

Sunset on the Ashley River

Sunset on the Ashley River
Oil on gallery wrapped canvas
10" x 10" 

The photo that I painted this painting from was taken on a hot summer night looking out over the Ashley River in Charleston.  I call it Sunset on the Ashley River.  I had friends visiting from Germany and they loved the whole Charleston area.  They also learned to love air conditioning.

"Nestled In"

"Nestled In"
24" x 24"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas
This will be for sale at Christ Church on Providence Road starting December 3rd.  Can be purchased at the Good Will Shop.

On a vacation in the Spring my husband and I drove from Boise, Idaho to Sisters, Oregon.  The landscape along the way was gorgeous.   I have never seen a barn with a blue roof before we drove by this one.  It was such a picturesque sight.  I name this oil painting "Nestled In" because the flat farm land was surrounded by beautiful mountains.

Through the Fence

It was a beautiful day at Hunter Farms in Weddington. There were five or six school buses full of children to see Hazel the cow and go for a hay ride.  My small plein air painting group decided to stay out of the way of all the children's activities.  We learned to paint something we really couldn't see.  It was warm weather and a great day to experiment.

Good Gulf Gas

Plein air painting at Mint Hill Historical Society location with Mary, Shirley, and Ken Karlic.  What a treat to paint outside with a master watercolorest.  I tried to thin my oils to make washes like it was a watercolor.  It was a great day even though we were freezing but we stayed for about five hours.
Ken Karlic's beautiful and detailed drawing of Good Gulf Gas pump.

Autumn has arrived

A beautiful morning at Col. Beatty Park.  The colors have popped since last week.  It's always a pleasure to paint there with people walking, fishing and painting.  Today the K-9 unit was there training a beautiful hound-dog to follow a scent.  His reward was a cookie at the end of the trail.

Sunrise in the City

I was having a little fun today with an abstract.  I wanted to see what the grays would look like in a cityscape.  I might a little more tomorrow and change the look again.
