Leaving the Beach, See Revised Version

Leaving the beach Revised on August 22, 2010 Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 10" x 10" x 1.5" Available at $75.00 plus shipping. We had the day yet at the beach house, before driving home, and while my young cousin and her friends were at the ocean, I painted the lane that leads to the house. Again with the morning shadows. The road is gravel, and I need to adjust the color, since right now it looks a bit too much like the sky color, but if you can visualize that, you've got the picture. (More gray-blue, I think.)

AM Dockside - SOLD

AM Dockside Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. I simply don't get tired of facing either way down by the dock, especially in the morning, when the light is so fine, and painting the water and the view of the shore. This is the last, though, of the plein air paintings, as we drive back to the DC area tomorrow. What a great week!

The Blue Umbrella - SOLD

The Blue Umbrella Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" (or 6" x 12") This is the Cropped Version SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. This is the uncropped version. Since it's a canvas panel, a framer could easily take a jigsaw to it, and I think the shorter version works better. Just those few inches off, makes a better composition. It's a lovely place to sit, watch the sunset, read a book, feel the breezes, listen to the seagulls.

Rainy Day Porch Sitting - SOLD

Rainy Day Porch Sitting Oil on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 10" x 10" x 1.5" SOLD at $75.00 plus shipping Usually with the gallery wrapped canvases, I extend the painting all around, but with this one, I plan to just paint a solid "frame" color (I am thinking grey blue) around the top, sides, and bottom. We've had a lot of rain here last night and this morning, so it was the porch for me and my paints. The porch is very appealing, great place to sit and visit, read, play games, all screened in so you get the lovely breezes, but no buggies.

Morning Light - SOLD

Morning Light
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping.

Yes, it's the same view. Isn't it interesting though, how every time you paint the same scene, it turns out differently? And then it clouded over, and then I sat on the dock and painted a little guy while the sky did interesting things, and I sat in the sprinkles.

Uncertain Sky - SOLD

Uncertain Sky Oil on Gessoed Panel, 6" x 6" SOLD at $35.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Sitting on the dock, and when it started to cloud over and rain, it actually felt really nice. The oils aren't bothered by water, so I simply painted in the sprinkles. Beautiful multi-colored sky.

Morning Shadows - SOLD

Morning Shadows Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14" SOLD at $65.00 plus shipping. Nice contrasts again this morning, the sunshine cutting across the grass, and the wonderful lavender shadows on the wet sand. Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

The House at Pasture Cove - SOLD

The House at Pasture Cove Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Buildings are really not my forte, even though I love the look of them in other painters' work. But every once in awhile I try. This one I used mostly palette knife, and tried mostly for the values, without paying too much attention to exacting lines and angles.

Overcast with Stripes- SOLD

Overcast with Stripes Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12" SOLD at $55.00 plus shipping. It clouded over this afternoon, but there was a good breeze, so I got some ruffling in the towels on the line. That gave me some nice shadows. Thanks for looking.

Morning Clothesline -NA

Morning Clothesline -Not Available
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 10" x 10"
This one is a gift to "The Beach House" and one of it's owners. Our morning started out with spots of sunshine, so I collected the sunny moments, and quick painted them in.
