The above painting is a view from the shoreline at Princess Place Preserve, a Flagler County Park, located northwest of Palm Coast, Florida.  Done in acrylics on stretched canvas, 16″ x 20″.

This painting is another view of Singleton Beach, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  The season is late winter, so the colors are muted.  I was experimenting with a more impressionistic style here.  Acrylic, 16″ x 20″, on stretched canvas.

The subjects for these next three landscapes were taken from photos I took while staying on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  As you can see, the marsh and beaches are quite stunning.  The first painting was done in acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″.  The second one of the marsh scene was done in water-soluble oil paints on canvas, 16″ x 20″.  Each painting is a step forward in skill and sensitivity… and just getting used to the mediums. (2016)

The subject of this portrait is a young woman who is a Facebook friend.  Her name is Artemis.  The portrait doesn’t do her justice…

A tropical flower from a photo taken while in Costa Rica.  I was staying at friend’s house in Georgia this past late winter and wanted to do some art.

The next photo isn’t very good, but the subject is a beautiful peony found in a garden in Walla Walla last spring (2015) while out on a walk.  I have always loved the work of Georgia O’Keefe and her huge flowers.  This is merely a nod in her direction.

  1. Hi Elizabeth, I love your paintings! Do you sign them? I don’t believe I seen your signature on any of them.
    Love and Light,
    Luther

  2. Hi Elizabeth, I love your pictures also! They have a beautiful “life” to them that “sings” out. And thank you for your journal which I resonate to very much. With Love and Light.

  3. I loved reading your blog today. I, too, AM a master, newly realizing and accepting my power and gifts (some of which are writing and art, also. Ha!!) …. I love your artwork! In fact, after reading about your maid/cooking service to Van Gogh, I can totally see his influence! Crystal clear. Just lovely. What a magnificent weaving our lives make, eh?

    Love. 💜

    • Related to a past lifetime. I also lived in Walla Walla, Washington, an area close to the original homeland of the Wallowa Band of the Nez Perce. Chief Joseph is a sort of icon in NE Oregon.

      This painting was done the winter after I had spent quite a bit of time in the Wallowa area on camping trips. I also had an interesting experience on my way home which I recount in this article During my stay in the Wallowas I felt an extraordinary connection to the place and the spirit of its long-departed people.
