Sunflowers Still Life Floral daily oil painting

"Uplift" 6"x6" oil on primed masonite. Sunflowers are so bold and strong, you can't help but paint them with thick, bold brushstrokes and deep color. I named this painting "Uplift" for the promise and warmth it represents on this cold January day.

Winter Hike

6"x6" oil on primed masonite. The snow is back. This little pond in the woods is a favorite for sledding and ice skating. The setting sun gave this scene a sense of warmth.

Orange Beach Umbrella Ocean original daily oil painting

Orange Beach Umbrella

6"x6" oil on primed masonite.

I painted this sitting on the beach in the late afternoon last spring. I came across it the other day and realized I didn't post it. There are bits of sand that blew up and stuck to the paint, which takes me right back to that fun day!
