Millers Island

'Millers Island'
6 X 8 Oil on archival canvas board

I just got back from a trip to Maine. Talk about a little piece of was wonderful to get up each morning, make a cup of coffee, then go sit out on the dock and watch the sun rise...all to the haunting calls of the loons. This was the only plein air I got done on the trip (did manage a few watercolor sketches for future work). I was having so much fun kayaking through the Serpentine with my daughter, splashing around in the water and painting with my grandkids, fishing and taking boat rides with the whole family. We managed to get to Camden, Freeport and Acadia...have so many pictures to go through, and the possibilities for future paintings are endless.
Now it's back to the real world...

Flowers from My Garden

'Flowers from My Garden'
6 X 8 Oil on archival canvas board
$125.00 plus $6.00 shipping

Last evening I decided to do a painting of some of the flowers in my garden. It was late when I started - around 6:30, so I had to work really fast. I thought the orange zinnias were really pretty in among the softer colored flowers.

Karin has really given us some challenging photographs to work from for the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenges, and this was no exception. I was considering letting this one pass, but then realized I was being a total wimp. Fortunately an idea popped into my head that would make it just a little bit different, and then I really started having fun!
