Night Lights Oil on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $15.00 plus $5.00 shipping. I sat out on the end of the pier for the sunset, and did a small watercolor. Thought the light show was all done, since there were clouds, but glancing out the window later, what a glorious blast of orange and pink. So I quick grabbed my camera again, and rushed out to catch the color. From memory I did this one tonight, just reacting to that glorious color. I'm not sure it really "works" but oh, it was fun to do. (The line of the shore is correct, as it isn't straight along this stretch, but curved.)
The Colors at Quillens Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. Detail below. I am in a bit of a dreamy mood, a little sad to be leaving in a day or so, a little moody about things at home. So, this is therapy for all of that, soft dabs and dots, quietly applied. In the beachy colors that have been my companions this last stretch of time. It works, very soothing and a very soft painting.

Cheater's Beach Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $60.00 plus shipping. It was still a little windy today, but I got out on the pier anyway this afternoon. Decided though, that I was going to cheat like crazy and not put in any of the docks, steps, piers, or boats. So I just had fun painting water and sky, trees, and little spots of color peeking though. What a cheater!
Burton's Island, Version2 Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I promised another rendition of this one to a collector who has been asking to buy paintings almost every day, and missing them. So this one is for KK is she wants it.

Sage and Shower Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. This is kind of a fun and funky little painting that won't mean much or have much appeal to folks other than those who have used this terrific outdoor shower. It is a beach house, after all. It's a spot out of the wind, but still outdoors, which is why I picked it for afternoon painting.
Burton's Island Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I wanted to continue painting last evening, so found one of the photos I took on our sailboat ride over to Burton's Island, which is a wildlife refuge, I think. Uninhabited, anyway. I loved this little natural canal, reflecting the sky, and then the lovely fields of grasses. A peaceful and beautiful place.

Side Porch View Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I had to search around this morning for a spot out of the wind. It was a white cap sort of day, and chilly enough to make a fire in the old hearth quite delicious. I lasted a couple of hours outside, and then moved in and just sat by the window looking out. I like how you can still see though the screen porch to the next pier over.

Beach Towels with Afternoon Light Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. I'd been eyeing the clothes line outside all last week, and when I was trying to figure out what to paint for someone who didn't know exactly what she wanted, I thought maybe this would be it. I got some beach towels, clothespins, hung them up, sat on the porch and while I was painting, two things happened. I figured out how to paint the light on the water that pops through the trees just there, and I figured out how to do grassy shadows better than last week. I think so anyway. Now to see if the painting matches the person.

Lacewing Hydrangeas Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping. Our day started out rainy and overcast, a perfect morning for sitting on the screen porch and setting up a still life. These mature lacewing hydrangea bushes are gorgeous and different. They have tough leaves and the sturdy blossoms turn down around a seed center, very cool. Great for thriving bay side.
