Golden Beach

My love, the beach. How I love your colors, your waves, your sand and wind and shadows and lights. Thank you for always being so beautiful and inviting!!

Sunset On The Beach

This is a painting I recently posted on DPW (Daily Paint Works) auction. I really like painting water and sky paintings. It makes me feel good. ;D 

I have many photos to paint from and, hopefully, some plein air painting with my sister. I'm getting my painting feels back after taking some time off. But, I'm back!

If you ever find yourself doubting you can make it through a challenge, simply think back to everything you've overcome in the past.

Ocean Colors

This painting was from a recent "sister's day," which is a day that I get together with my sister Betty Ann, the best painter of the two of us, (by far) and paint until our hearts are content, practice new techniques, challenge each other to paint this way or that, and generally have a really good time. 

We laugh, eat cake, and paint and paint and paint. This week Charlie, our wonderful and talented brother, cooked dinner for us, giving us more time to create. Thanks Charlie!
