I captured these yummy orange sherbet hibiscus in Cape Cod. Although this painting looks like a pastel, it really is an oil. I created this effect by toning the canvas with a dark color and then adding pastel colors with a lot of white in them. This painting is available at the Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas.
We’ve been having some rainy, gray days here (weatherman calls it “mizzle”) so I felt the need to paint some sunflower sunshine.
This is my painting that will be exhibited at the Dutch Art Gallery, 10233 E Northwest Hwy, starting this Saturday, November 9. Please come to the opening reception starting at 11:00 am. The announcement of awards is at 2:00 pm. Food and drinks will be provided. It will be a party!
I need your support. Be sure to arrive a little before 2 pm. Thanks!
I painted this after spending a lovely morning at White Rock Lake in Dallas. The golden light flowed over the lake, and the monarch butterflies (who migrate thru here in the fall) were flitting all around.
I am getting geared up for Thanksgiving in Santa Fe with friends. Here are the statuesque hollyhocks that are often pictured next to rustic Santa Fe doors.
I was doing inventory the other day and found this canvas that I have never posted here. It pictures a camellia forest we visited in Charleston last December. The camellia plants were the size of trees and soft light filtered through the forest. I like the abstractness of this painting with the glowing colors in the background.
This is a field of zinnia flowers that I visited at the Wild Seed Farm in Fredericksburg, Texas, two weeks ago. It was 97 degrees, but the flowers were loving the sun.
I took a watercolor course from Janet Rogers last week and learned a lot about painting flowers. Above are my early attempts. I plan to do more!
While competing in the Good Art Company Plein Air Event two weeks ago, I captured this image at sunset. We were on the Baron Creekside Resort. Their vineyard is off to the right behind the fence. I loved the silhouettes of the gnarly live oak trees against the bright colors of the sunset.
These are the two cabin paintings I created at the Good Art Company Plein Air Event last week. The bottom one was mine and the top was occupied by a fellow painter. They were very quaint and quirky. Mine had a sink in an old hand wringer washing machine and vintage doors in the ceiling! We were on the property of the Baron Creekside Resort.
I participated in my first plein air competition this week in Fredericksburg, Texas sponsored by the Good Art Company. We painted at the Baron Creekside resort. This is their vineyard. I painted 3 paintings in one day, a record for me! This is the one I turned in for the competition. I will post the other two as I complete them. Great fun!
I named this The Promise because it is my daughter’s wedding bouquet, and I see it as a commitment to a lifetime of love, support and companionship. It is primarily bougainvillea (plentiful in Israel) and roses. They were bouquets of these on every table, beautiful!
When I saw this view from the Dunvegan Castle window in Scotland, I wanted to own it. Can you imagine being able to look at this every day with your morning coffee! The niches in the stone fence outside the window are for cannons. The white structure in the left distance is an old lighthouse.
