Three Sisters Girls Beach Lake Sandcastles daily oil painting

"Sandcastles" 6"x6" oil on primed masonite. I love the challenge of capturing a moment quickly. This little moment of time on the beach. My brush flies and I get looser in brushstrokes and mixing color right on the painting.

Contemporary Autumn Abstract Rural Landscape daily oil painting

Autumn Abstract

6"X6" oil on primed masonite. Today I switched gears in the studio. I must be getting tired of the sub zero snowy, icy weather of late, for today I was not in the mood to paint with grays and cool colors. So, I had some fun and it made me feel a bit warmer. I was on a roll and my seven month old took a long nap, so I actually painted 3 small paintings! I will post them in the following days.

"Crunchy Quiet"

You know, that nose numbing cold, and the only sound is the crunch of the snow from your footsteps: crunchy quiet. It is below zero today!
