This next piece is based on a photo posted by one of my Facebook friends. I enjoy doing portraits. This drawing was done with pencils, colored and black, on Bristol paper.
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.
