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

coastal-path-36x48

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.

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.

The Sunflower Farm

The Sunflower Farm 6x10

6″ x 10″ Oil on board

The sunflowers are in bloom.  When I went to the field a storm was approaching.  So this is a small studio painting that will fit a barn wood frame that my father made.

Chandelle Farms Pond Reflections

Chandelle Farms Pond Reflections 11x14

11″ x 14″ Oil on Panel

This is my second painting for the NC Open Plein Air event in Salisbury.  I was very happy that it received an Honorable Mention.  Perhaps I should have called it “A Study in Green.”

Gold Hill Crepes

Gold Hill Crepes 11x14

11″ x 14″ Oil on Panel

This is my Gold Hill painting for the NC Open Plein Air event last weekend.  I tweaked it a bit in my studio this week adding more splashes of color.  Gold Hill is a painter’s paradise about five minutes from my home.

Spencer Summer II

Spencer Summer II 14x11

14″ x 11″ Oil on canvas panel

This is a studio painting.  It was just to hot to paint on site so I took photos and worked from my computer monitor in my studio pretending to be on location.  This was easier in the sense that the sunlight/shadows weren’t changing.  Also I could take my time painting in air conditioning.  However, I really do prefer to paint outside.  Guess it is the challenge.

Lavender in Bloom

Lavender in Bloom 9x12

9″ x 12″ Oil on panel

The lavender is in bloom.  Members of Plein Air Carolina were invited to paint at a local farm.  It was very hot, but I knew I couldn’t miss it.  I did enjoy a cool lavender lemonade while painting.
