9″ x 12″ Oil on Panel

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.

A plein air painting from Hurley Park in Salisbury.  It was tweaked a bit in my studio.  I find that I sometimes need to revisit a painting to adjust the values and colors to my liking.
