"Morning Bouquet"

14"x11" Oil on Linen Panel

A lovely artist friend of mine invited me to paint at her Rockville SC home which is filled with charm and beauty at every turn.  We set up this still life early in the morning on her front porch and got straight to work. . . the golden morning sun was rising and glowing . . .  this is one of the results.

"Rich History (The Charleston Library Society)" SOLD

9"x12" Oil on Linen Panel

The light filtered through the trees onto the steps of this historic and beautiful building always attracts me to paint.  This was done this spring as you can see the bright red Japanese Maple glowing around the corner of the building.

"A Path To The Sea"

8"x10" Plein Air Oil on Linen Panel 

Painted on location in the Old Village at the end of Center Street which dead-ends into the edge of Charleston Harbor.  The views are breathtaking!

"To A Place I Belong" SOLD

11"x14" Oil on Linen Panel  sold

I am still considering a title for this. . . but in the meantime it is as stated.
Title or not, it's available here:


"Searching For Sunshine" SOLD

As I was setting up to paint this still life, the sunflowers seemed to be searching for the sunshine behind them.  And even as I painted, because I put fresh cuts on the stems (which promotes better water delivery), the entire bunch (greens and all) "moved" during the time I painted them.  They were "stretching" as they "awoke." This was a lot of fun to paint!  

Sold at the Hagan Fine Art Gallery Studio

"Preserving The Past"

8"x10" Plein Air Oil on Gessobord brand panel

It was a foggy morning and I really wanted to get outside to paint on this day.  Historic Summerville has a sweet square dating back to the early 1800's.  Charm galore!!  I'll be back to paint some more.
