"Rebirth of Spring" is a landscape watercolor painting created from several of my photographs. I love the misty feeling of the background with the crispness of application of the tree trunk in the foreground. I hope the painting evokes a memory and/ or pleasant thoughts!
Having been born in the North Carolina mountains , I get a familiar feeling when I see a barn in the distance. Barns aren't often seen in the city landscape these days, however if you are in the countryside of any state you see the finest displays of this type of structure. As kids growing up in the mountains, the perfect vehicle to travel this type of road surface is a truck.Some of the most fun I ever had were the summer hayrides in the back of a pickup truck! " Going Home", a landscape in oil, is reminiscent of my country childhood experiences!
"Water Grasses" " is an oil maritime/seascape painting which has evolved over a two year period. It has taken me a little while to capture the mood of this scene in the South Carolina low country marshland. Now that the painting is complete I feel that it captures why I first loved the subject and time of day!
The beautiful southern marshes have many moods. "Quiet Marshes" introduces you to the subtleties of a soft sultry lighting experienced in midmorning on the marsh lands of the Southeast. This landscape oil painting is inviting you to move through the grasses and view the vibrating colors and textures often missed! The next time you look at marsh grasses enjoy their variations of color as they recede in the landscape!
Fort Screven" is a coastal site in the Savannah Beach area in Georgia. I recently visited this area and was intrigued with the small cottages nestled in the sandy soil here! As soon as I returned to my studio, I began working on my sketches, describing what I had seen and enjoyed! "Fort Scriven Cottage" is a 6 x 6, architectural/seascape pencil and ink drawing on paper. Original black and white drawings make a wonderful addition to your art collection! Be ready to enjoy more such small maritime studies/sketches on this site!Double matted with a soft white mat.
My cat, Dolly, was in bad need of attention! She jumped up on the bed where I had laid out my fabric for cutting and refused to budge! I chuckled as I continued to plan my sewing project. "Attention Needed" is a feline oil painting on stretched canvas. Please contact me on my home page for more information on this painting!
