I enjoy painting water with a knife.  I love the texture it gives, as well as the subtle color changes.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

No automatic alt text available. 
It's been just over 2 weeks since my husband had his second knee replacement surgery.  He's healing very well but still needs a bit of help.  Nearly every day has been taken up with trips to doctors or physical therapy.  

I've been missing my time in the studio and am looking forward to this weekend where, hopefully, I'll be able to get back into my painting routine.  Anyway, I got these sample paints from Chroma.  They are doing a test marketing of a new formula for their heavy body acrylic paints, and I can't wait to try them out.  These aren't the colors I would normally use in my work, so it should be interesting to experiment with a new palette.  I'll keep you posted on the results.

I'm beginning to schedule my private abstract painting workshops for the rest of this year.  If you are interested in spending 3 intensive days of painting with me, please click here.

My group workshop at Fort Cooper State Park, here in Inverness, Florida,  is starting to fill up.  This is a wonderful opportunity to spend 3 fun days in an idyllic location.  I don't do workshops outside of Florida anymore, so I hope you will join me and other artists for this exciting workshop.

Included in all my workshops is my PDF file on tips for selling your art online!

"Sunset on The Rocks" Original Watercolor, Seascape, Ocean Rocks Sunset Painting by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

This view from my kitchen window was particularly stunning one evening. The Maine coastline is a glorious place anytime of day. I could hear the squawking seagulls following the boat as the fishermen returned home with their precious cargo. Lobster anyone?

Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, VanGogh landscape, "Tribute to Vincent" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

Each week our art group appoints one member as leader.  The leader, decides what type of project we will work on that day.  A few weeks ago, Faye was our leader, and as her project, she brought it images of VanGogh and Monet paintings for us to re-create.

 I chose his very famous "Wheatfield with Cypresses" . Actually, I chose one of three similar paintings that carry that name.

 I have always wanted to give his famous and distinctive swirling brushwork a try.  It was an interesting experiment, one that I will probably do again.


Years ago, I spent some time studying the masters  and duplicating some of their works.  I found it to be very informative.  Here is one of my attempts at Degas' work, "Woman Bathing"

 I have been on quite a flower painting jag lately, and still have more to come.  I spent the month of April in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and was inspired by the beautiful show from Mother Nature.  Flowers were everywhere, especially the trees and bushes.

Now that I am home again, I cannot stop looking at my stash of photos and painting flowers every day.

Yesterday, I went to Bok tower, here in Florida, with my paint buddies, and got inspired all over again.  Miles of beautiful gardens!

Florida Coastal Landscape, Seascape Painting "View From The Cottage by The Sea" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Sunset...the time of day when the ultimate calm sets in and the only way to describe it is utter peacefulness. People marvel at the quickly changing glorious colors, along with the speed of descent. Immediately comes the tremendous applause as the sun slips away. This was my view from the "Cottage By The Sea". Would you like to live here?

Sunrise on the Dunes, 6x8 Original Oil Painting, Seascape with Sunrise by Carmen Beecher


Florida sunrises are amazing, and seem even more so during thunderstorm season. We get all sorts of weather phenomena this time of year, and the rain is a welcome relief from the awful heat. Our pool was 90 degrees the other day, but after the rains it is 80 degrees. A big difference!

Small Coneflower Painting, SOLD, Flower Painting, Floral Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Floral Landscape

I planted coneflower (echinacea) around my home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  So...of course, I had to paint them too.

SOLD

I find them to be easy to grown, and cheerful, with their giant heads and quirky style.

I painted several coneflower paintings last summer, in many sizes and styles.  Somehow, this little one was overlooked and never posted.




I tried to keep it fresh and simple, painting with a large brush.  I also tried to keep the colors harmonized.



All in all, I feel good about the results.  Hope you like it too.

Have a blessed day!

Try and try again, I could not accurately photograph the colors in this piece.  It is actually a tad brighter than depicted here.  Don't you hate when that happens?

Trying to show the sides of the canvas in this shot....not inspired, sorry!

Cheers!!

Are you in a painting rut?  We, as artists, all run into those times when we begin to wonder if the muse will ever visit us again.  Sometimes all we need is encouragement and guidance.  Sometimes all we need is a new way to look at things and sometimes all we need is a 3 day workshop to renew and reinvigorate our creative juices.

If you're going through one of those "dry" periods or if you'd just like to have a little guidance, then one of my workshops is for you!

In October I will be holding my Go Big Go Bold abstract painting workshop here in beautiful Inverness, Florida.  You will enjoy 3 wonderful days of painting fun surrounded by nature's tranquil beauty at Fort Cooper State Park.  This workshop is filling up fast, so be sure to register soon.
Here is more information about the park and accommodations.

If you prefer private one-on-one instruction, then my Private 3 Day Painting Workshop is for you!
Leave your materials and supplies and home!  Bring your paint clothes, comfortable shoes and lots of enthusiasm!

Have a wonderful, colorful Summer!

Rustic Barn Landscape Painting, Rural Landscape, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 9x12x.75" Palette Knife Painting

Last month, my friends and I went on a photo shoot in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  We rode the country roads, looking for scenic farms.


Purchase here 
 I couldn't resist this old ragged barn, on it's last legs.  I painted with a palette knife hoping to bring the scene to life.

It was a hot September day and the grasses had turned a golden brown.



How nice to be an artist.  I truly believe we train our eyes to see so much beauty, that often goes unnoticed in  daily life.  What a blessing we have!

Thanks for reading my blog today.....and stop to smell the roses.
