Thank you Camellia Art!


 So happy to hear that my South Carolina Gallery Camellia Art on Hilton Head Island has found a home for this Big -40x60!- Beauty. Titled Sand Patterns, it reflects my love of shape and color found along the coastline. Intrigued by patterns that form with the shifting tides, this restful yet dynamic painting invites the viewer to contemplate the wonders of nature… and be filled….as I was…with gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving

 


The last of this little series of daisies is titled In This Together.6x6 on a cradled panel, all three are available on my Daily Paintworks Gallery. Did you know that in Norse mythology, the daisy is a sacred flower for the goddess of beauty, love and fertility? 

Daisies symbolize motherhood, new beginnings, innocence and hope. And don’t we all need some of that? 

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful- there’s always something to be grateful for.

Painting & Halloween from the Lowcountry

Painting with gouache at the Hilton Head Motorcoach Resort where we spend as much time as we can- it’s been a glorious two weeks. This is the view looking out from our lot- see photo reference below. Keeping things simple and small as I struggle with back issues. But being creative is certainly a great pain-reliever…get in the zone and you’ll see… no worries at all!



Did this gouache the day before from inside our motorhome- looking out the dinette window to our beautiful magnolia tree. This resort is known for the old-growth canopy of wonderful trees- keeps it cool and shady when the days are hot. Love the lowcountry!

An Apple a Day


On the road in the motorhome- set up a simple still life- on the picnic table at our campsite in Pigeon Forge. Fall in Tennessee was beautiful so I indicated those shapes and colors in the background. 8x8 on a panel.
