Bangle - beach scenes, people at the beach

6x6" oil - had a marathon painting session at the beach - which is the best for several reasons, my favorite being seeing what develops towards the end.

-after painting a bunch of 'serious' landscapes, I started painting a few close up people studies. quick, fun and loose, not over thinking - in fact barely thinking about painting.

I love getting to that place.

Summer Blue -oil painting,hydrangeas,flowers,still life

24"x30" oil on canvas. Summer Blue. Hydrangeas again - love em or hate em they are the flowers of summer ... kinda have to paint them at least once.

With the bigger paintings, I'm experimenting with thick and thin paint - its very freeing.

except my little dog likes to sleep directly under the easel and with the dripping happening here, well lets just say he got a bath in the sink later

Work in Progress

a work in progress - sitting on my mantel - I'm no good at the 'work a little bit on a painting every day til its done' thing.

Painting something all at once - in one sitting -or at the most 2 days is waaaay more my style -

This was painted months ago....its my mission this week to finish it! its so close. then switching gears just a bit....

Beach Girl - plein air,beach scenes,children playing at the beach

6x6" oil - beginning of a 'working vacation' for me :) - not going anywhere just spending the next two weeks painting up a storm.

This beach girl was painted from life (plein air) - MUCH harder than working from photos - but the spontaneity and energy cant be beat.
