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.

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.

11″ x 14″ Oil on panel

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.

Hurley Park Late Summer

hurley-late-summer-12x9

12″ x 9″ Oil on Panel

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.
