St Phillips Church at Sunset

Pin It

St Phillips Church at Sunset
(updated painting)

I was looking at this painting while in the gallery the other day
and thought..... hmmm.....
The palm trees really are behind those buildings that really are just drab
and plain back side of the buildings that really are there.....
But I think that the painting will be more interesting if I move the palm trees!
So, I did. I uprooted the palms and replanted them to be in front of the buildings.
I like it much better. What do you think?
That is "artistic license"!

Carolina Beach Day

Pin It

Carolina Beach Day
8 x 10
oil on panel, framed

What a glorious day it is when I get to walk on the beach.
The clouds, the water, the sand are always, always
different story.... or a different painting waiting to be!
And as always, there is the artist's interpretation.
Soft billowy clouds full of color just 
bouncing around the waves.

Great Blue Heron has flown from the Carolina waters!

Pin It
Great Blue Heron
oil on canvas

While I was away in Italy, one of my little birdies has flown away to a new home.
This little gem of a painting shows him trying to hide from me
but he was captured in a photo lens 
and put on canvas.
Thank you!
