Sunday at Sunset

Sunday at Sunset
8x10 oil on canvas

On the easel

I'm such a sucker for the sand dunes behind our place on Anna Maria Island! The early morning and late evening sunlight paints such pretty hues across the grasses... and quickly capturing the fleeting effect of it is a constant challenge that I just haven't tired of yet!

The Beach at Bean Point



The Beach at Bean Point
12x12 oil on canvas board

On the easel
An hour after I started this painting the shadows had all but disappeared. Unfortunately, the annoying swarms of gnats, stuck around (quite literally!) If you look closely at the painting, you'll see what appears to be a flock of seagulls in the sky... so yeah, we'll just go with that!

On the easel

I wandered down the beach a ways with my plein air gear this morning, but ended up veering off onto a side street where a little light in a doorway caught my eye.

Couds Over Anna Maria Island

Clouds over Anna Maria Island SOLD
12x12 oil on canvas board

On the easel

I love this view of the beach with it's sand dunes and violet shadows, bonus that its just steps from my door, so makes for a very short commute! Kept thinking of Bob Ross's term "happy little clouds" as they floated by and I put them down on my canvas!

Weekend Getaway

Weekend Getaway SOLD
8x10 oil on canvas panel

Took advantage of it being Mother's Day to do what this mother likes doing most! Often times you don't even have to travel far to get inspiration. The little beach resort cottages of Cedar Cove made for a fun study of light, shapes and shadows.
