Azaleas in Yellow

Azaleas in Yellow 10x8

10″ x 8 ” Oil on linen panel

I went to Hurley Park in Salisbury, NC to do a simple tree study.  But I saw these wonderful yellow azaleas.  So my tree study turned into an azalea study.  Just love all the spring flowers and the fresh greens of spring.

Park Azaleas

Park Azaleas 14x11

14″ x 11″ Oil on Linen Panel

This is a path in Fisher Park, Greensboro, NC.  I started it on site at an Albert Handell workshop.  I tweaked the painting a bit at my studio in Salisbury trying to remember Albert’s teaching.  The park was just amazingly beautiful last week.  It was hard to decide what to paint.

You Can’t Catch Me!

You Can't Catch Me 14x18

14″ x 18″ Oil on canvas panel

This is Piper, my happy little Schnoodle.  She loves to run and chase.  On a recent trip to Fredericksburg, Texas, we took some photos of her among the Blue Bonnets.  The wildflowers were beautiful this year.

Plein Air Carolina painted at Hurley Park in Salisbury, NC last Friday.  Some of the tress were in bloom.  It was good to be outside painting again on such a beautiful day.

Coastal Path

36″ x 48″ Oil on gallery wrap with painted edges

This is a North Carolina coastal scene.  It is a commission based on a smaller sold painting.  I really enjoyed revisiting this scene and tweaking it to make it work in this larger format.  I hope to paint more commissions.

This is a beautiful location that is new to me.  As the sun rose it lit up the rocks jutting out in the quarry.  The painting was mostly painted on site and then finished in my studio.
