"Magnolia Muse"

“Magnolia Muse”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I sketched this the other week but just could not finish it until now. The magnolias bloom, flower and fade so fast that I knew to go back to complete this would be pointless….

"Rearing To Go"

“Rearing To Go”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I had been checking on this pond, waiting for the exceedingly high water level to drop. The water was into the poison ivy thickets along the shore, giving no leeway to pass unscathed. I think someone else had given up checking and now was about to find their boat high and dry. Even though I was wishing for a sunny day, here was my opportunity…

"Long Point Moon"

“Long Point Moon”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

This was the last full moon I was able to capture about May 15th. It is hard to believe the landscape greened up in just one month, but it didn’t look like this on June 15th. This is on the glacier outwash plain, flat with a reluctant slope into the Atlantic Ocean…

"Summer Time"

“Summer Time”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I painted this scene in the winter, but I think I like this view more. Not just because it’s greener, but the light is warmer and softer in the summer season…

"Spring Beach"

“Spring Beach”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I walked down the glacial path to paint in the woods, but the sea called. Ending up on top of the dunes wasn’t so bad after all. The breeze kept me bug free and the waning sunlight softened the early evening land and seascape…

"Boxwood Garden"

“Boxwood Garden”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

It has become so green this Spring that I felt I had to do a green garden painting…

"Magnolia Jungle"

“Magnolia Jungle”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

Regularly painting for 5 years without much of a break, I am back to my palette after a month of not working. It was nice to not have the daily pressure of creating, but I did miss painting spring this year…
