Hawaiian Skies Sunrise near Diamond Head Heidi Malott

"Good Morning"
6x6" oil on primed masonite.

How could it be a bad morning in Hawaii?  No, I am not in Hawaii today, as a matter of fact I am having coffee this morning at home and it is 27 degrees and frosty out.

Summer Hike Impressionism Contemporary Landscape Heidi Malott

"Summer Hike"
6"x6" oil on primed masonite

When painting a landscape it is easy to be overwhelmed by all the details.  Sometimes I have to write a simple message on a post it note and stick it right on my easel:  "Simplify" or "KISS" (keep it simple sister!)

First Snow Landscape Contemporary Oil Painting Heidi Malott

"First Snow"
6x6" oil on primed art board

More like a first dusting.  I still can't believe the winter season is approaching.  We are still eating tomatoes from the garden!  This is my first painting after a long break.  I feel a little rusty.  I spent most of my time in the studio preparing my supplies.  I have missed posting and hearing from friends in art.
