Dawn at the Ocean

The second image is the revised version.
I lengthened the shadow of the umbrella, and revised her face a little.

Dawn at the Ocean
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8"
Available at $40 plus $10 shipping.

This one has been two days in the making, people are so tricky.

I did take some process photos, so thought I'd include a few here:

Drawn in with pastel pencil, and starting with the face and limbs.
Oops, I notice that the legs should be longer.

Lengthen the legs and start dding the details.

The face took forever, and difficult, being so tiny.
Ok. I'm happy with the face, and adding the sky and greenery.

Thanks for looking!

Clam Shells
Pencil on Bristol, 8" x 10"

Available at $15 plus $10 shipping.

My "beach house" series continues. View from the dock. You can just see a small beach across the bay, which is where, one lovely afternoon, my great niece Kate and I kayaked, and watched some schools of little fish, and some dogs playing in the water. Fun times!

Morning Light on the Dock- SOLD

Morning Light on the Dock
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 14" x 18"

The morning light at the bay was so fresh and subtle, roses and pale yellows in the sky. The sunset light was much more intense, and I'll do some of those too. But I love the morning views.

Low Tide Fishing - SOLD

I am back from our beach vacation, and I feel like I've been in Paradise. It was so lovely, so much beauty and wonderful company, and the food. Oh, my. Eastern shore freshness...juicy, dripping peaches, the freshest corn, REAL tomatoes (not like the grocery stores.)

Anyway, lots to paint, lots of photos, and some much needed inspiration.

To start a series, I did a small one, just to get back into the oils.

Low Tide Fishing
Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 8"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

It's a start. You probably won't be able to see them here, below, but when it was morning low tide, usually about 7:00 am, the egrets would come and fish in the bay. So neat to watch, while sitting on the dock with morning coffee.

Lucky Me!

I'm elated!
This is where I'll be next week, by the generosity and grace of my dear coz and his wife.
At the shore, at the lovely old "beach house."

Sitting on the dock of a bay, maybe sketching, probably visiting. Or at the ocean, watching the waves roll on in. Certainly soaking up the beauty. These were done in August of 2010, and I'm planning to take oodles of photos to paint later.

Meanwhile, I have shipped out all drawings and paintings, except where a collector or two are "stacking" their purchases for later all-at-once shipping. You should get yours early this coming week.

White Iris - soLD

White Iris
Pencil and Gouache on Bristol, 11.5" x 10.5"
SOLD at $6 plus $10 shipping.

This one is a bit different, in that I left much of the watercolor pencil showing, and simply brushed over the marks with water. In some places the gouache is heavier, like in the leaves, but in a lot of places the pencil shows thru.
