Springdale Park is one of string of 6 parks in the Atlanta area designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. I enjoy occasionally paint there with a plein air group. Springdale Park is a plein air painting that I put the finishing touches on in my studio.
Our back yard is quite a bird sanctuary! Watching them criss cross from tree to bird feeder is my favorite morning past time! Posing, a wildlife watercolor painting is inspired by a photo of an Eastern Blue Bird that I was able to get!
Recently, I painted with a nationally known oil painter in the mountains of north Georgia, my home state. The weather was gloomy in the mornings but the sun came out in the late afternoon to light this delightful dirt path whose shadows caught my eye. Let's Take A Walk, a small oil landscape painting is a result of this long winding path with a distant range of mountains!
I had convinced a good artist friend to go to the Chattahoochee Riverbank to paint late one evening last week! It was a mild summer evening, so here we go with easel, backpack, and tripod in hand! We had a wonderful time painting beside the water looking out at these reflections and imagining how we were ever going to describe the many beautiful colors in the water! My interpretation of the events is this small landscape oil painting named appropriately " Riverbank Reflections" .
"Struttin Around The Hen House" is an oil painting inspired by my photographs of the chicken coup in an area where my daughter lives. The chickens have been built a great looking hen house to live in! You can see their coup in the watercolor painting titled "Busy Bodies" on this site. The oil painting is painted around the gallery wrapped sides so it isn't necessary to add a frame. Deanna's Custom Designed frames are available for purchase if you wish to add a beautiful frame to the painting!
A trip to meet my daughter for lunch off Interstate 20 gifted me with not only time with her but also a unexpected photography opportunity! While the sweet donkey nudged Chrissy through the barbed wire fence, I was able to enjoy the country scenery and several horses on the fenced in property! Look for more beautiful equine paintings inspired by the beautiful sunny day enjoying these horses! "Three's Company" is an oil equine landscape painting on canvas just waiting for a welcoming home!
Castello Banfi is an Italian wine estate of 7,100 acres planted just 20 years ago. My husband and I had the pleasure of dining there on a trip to the Tuscany region of Italy. It's acreage is massive and lush, offering me easy visualization of this painting. Always enticed by old stone structures, I set to work to give you an idea of what you are missing by not traveling to Italy!
