I have just completed a smaller oil on canvas that I am calling “Buds.” These are my “grandcats,” sitting on a table together, gazing out a window to watch the birds and squirrels.
I was very happy to successfully deliver “Yacht Island, Lake Lure, NC” to the individuals who commissioned this piece. A VERY good day!
I have recently completed a really large project … a 40 X 32″ oil on canvas commissioned piece that is such a beautiful view of a part of Lake Lure. This was a big endeavor, but I enjoyed working on step by step. One of the things I like about this work is watching a painting come to life as I complete each section. And of course, on a painting this large, it is a tremendous feeling of accomplishment when I complete the final steps.
Each winter I hope our area will get luck and we’ll have some snow and true winter weather. I recently painted this scene from a photo my husband took last winter when it was cold enough to snow and freeze the local pond. We really enjoyed our winter walk that day!
I’ve just finished an oil on canvas, “Indian Creek Falls.” This image I painted from a photograph my husband Bob took this past year when we were hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains. This trail was so beautiful! I can’t decide which I liked better … this hike or painting the image of the lovely falls.
10 x 20″ ~ framed oil on canvas, ready to hang ~ $295
I just finished my largest painting to date … a private commission that is a whopping 6′ x 3′. This is an oil on canvas gallery wrap painting that is a private commission. I’m grateful I had my husband’s help with building the frame for this canvas as I believe it might have been too difficult for me to tackle solo.
My newest painting is a custom framed, oil on canvas piece that is 14 x 11″ and available for sale for $240.
This tree is on the St. Mary’s River in northern Florida. It is a “black water” river caused by all the tanin in the water. These huge, twisted trees grow in wet areas all over the southern US.
We don’t usually get much snow where we live during winter. But the 2017-18 winter has been spectacular! My husband took a photo from one of our winter hikes of this view we had of the First Broad River. This is a highly textured oil painting that is a 35 x 12″ gallery wrap that is custom framed and available for sale for $475.
My newest painting is an oil on gallery wrap canvas called “Mountain Cabin.” I just love finding these old barns! Getting the texture of the old wood is a challenge I very much enjoy tackling.
