Lotus Blossoms

Lotus Blossoms 12x24

12″ x 24″ Oil on panel

This scene is painted from a photo that I took on our last trip.  We were visiting the Poughkeepsie, NY area.  The painting does not due justice to the gorgeous pond.  I had to stop along a country road and quickly take pictures with my long lens.  There were lots of “No Trespassing” signs posted so I stayed at the roadside.

I painted this with Plein Air Carolina at the Hambley-Wallace House in Salisbury.  It is side view of a beautiful old mansion on Fulton street.  I love the detail in the granite work and how it reflects the light.

As I recall this was a very young foal playing in the pasture with it’s mother.  This was painted in my studio from a reference photo that I took at a friend’s horse farm near Lexington, NC.  I love the way the mother is keeping an eye on her baby.
