"Little Red Scooter (on Church & Broad Streets)"

10"x8" Oil on Linen Panel

Morning light sparkles on Church Street near the corner of Broad Street. 
 I saw that there was a special concession made for the owner of this little red scooter: it has it's own parking square!

"Entry to Little Red Cottage" SOLD

8"x10" Oil on Linen Panel   SOLD
Another painting from the Charleston SC Plein Air Paintout. . . a fellow painter pointed out this lovely house and its driveway off of quaint Bedon's Alley.   So I just had to paint it!

"Ol' Glory" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Linen Panel   SOLD

I recently participated in a Saturday Plein Air Paintout in Downtown Charleston, SC.  This was one of the three I painted that day. 
The Charleston Artist Collective's next theme is RED and my thought is to use this as one of my entries; the red stripes of the American Flag next to St. Michael's Church could be considered the focal point, or is it the Glory that the Church represents?

"Three Palms" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Linen Panel   sold

Another exercise in painting the negative shapes.  My vantage point where I painted this was standing on the beach at low tide looking up at the hilltop dunes.  There is a sheen or shine on the image so I may retake the photo.  All in all it was a spectacular day to be outside painting!

"Beach Rocks"

9"x12" Oil on Linen Panel

Fort Moultrie beach was the site for this painting.  The rocks were making gorgeous patterns of light and dark as the tide was ebbing out.

"Elk Lake Sunset"

11"x14" Oil on Gessoboard

This is a Lake in Michigan . . painted for a friend from a photo taken at sunset.  I would like to retake this image as it has a "shine" from the light reflecting off of the oil paint.
