Path to the Beach

Path to the Beach 24x30

24′ x 30′ Oil on linen, gallery wrap with painted edges

I just returned from a trip to Florida.  This was painted in my studio this week from a reference photo.  It was wonderful painting en plein air with the Fort Myers Beach outdoor painters.  I plan to post a couple of those paintings soon.  If you are interested in seeing the painting, it is at Rail Walk Gallery in Salisbury, NC.

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.

Boys at the Beach

Boys at the Beach 20x16

20″ x 16″ oil on linen gallery wrap with painted edges

I have to credit my granddaughter for the photo of her husband and two of her boys at the beach.  It was fun and challenging to paint with my palette knife.

Dune Catcher

Dune Catcher 18x24

This is a beach on the North Carolina coast.  I love the curve of the fence that is used to keep the sand dunes in place and the cool shadows on the sand.
