Golden Glow

8x10 oil on canvas board

Wanted to test out the little mini pochade box set up I'll be taking to Italy next week, so I used it to play around with another version of my favorite sand dune out back this evening.

A Different Kind of House Painting

Pat's Back Porch
6x6 oil on panel

A couple months ago my husband and I were walking through historic Palmetto, near my studio/gallery, and I started taking note of the houses around the area. I prepared a bunch of 6x6' panels and decided I would start a series of paintings depicting some of the quaint old houses with their inviting front porches. After posting a few of them to my Instagram page I received several inquiries from Palmetto residents to paint their houses. The above pieces are the resulting commissions. Below is the start to my on-going series of of little "Palmetto Porches."
