"Sleepy Sea"

12"x12" Oil/Linen Panel, painted alla prima, en plein air on location at Sullivan's Island, SC

As I drove to our painting location this particular morning, the weather was very foggy. While painting this one, the sun was slowly rising and burning off the fog and it made the atmosphere very "warm." The ocean was like glass and everything seemed to still be asleep. This was a very tranquil and quiet morning to paint; almost Zen-like.

"Secret Passage"

10"x10" Oil on Linen Panel, painted alla prima & en plein air on location at Station 19 on Sullivan's Island, SC.  Available at the Plum Goose, 422 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, SC 29407 888-604-5514

A beautiful but cold sunny day to plein air paint at the beach!

Thankfully, my friend opened up her Sullivan's Island beachfront home so we could paint from the comfort of her sun porch. Thank you, Anne!!! xoxoxo!
In reality, the water at the horizon line was much more "purple" than bright blue.  May have to retake the image in hopes of a more accurate color.

"Liberty of Innocence"

14"x11" Oil on Linen Panel,
This was a commission for this little 3-year old's grandmother who just adores when her baby-girl comes to the beach for a visit.
