Small Seascape, "Florida Surf" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

I love to walk on the beach and I also love to paint the scenes I find there.  So, when I walk, it is always with camera in hand.

Purchase here
96 + shipping

 
 I almost always start with a brush...but some paintings demand a knife.  This one demanded a knife.  I like the effect as the surf was choppy on this day and the knife helps to depict that.





Do your paintings evolve despite your best intentions?  It may not be the painting I envisioned  when I started but I always enjoy the process and MOST of the time, the results.

Florida Coastal Landscape, Seascape Painting "The Journey Home" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Safari Sunset, Orange and Red Sky with Huge Setting Sun by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

Sometimes the sun is so huge it seems like it's overpowering! This sun reminded me of an old movie poster about surfers on safari for Endless Summer, chasing the sun and surf around the world. The warm colors intensify against the black silhouetted palm trees and water. 12x24 original oil. This painting was chosen for the Artists Registry Members 2013 Exhibit which showcases 2 works from each of 80 Florida artists.

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.

1523 Tropical Blue Bamboo Plein Air Alla Prima


I painted this today at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens in the Gloria Moore Memorial garden.  It was perfect today, not too hot or cold.  I took a few liberties with the plant positions, in real life there is a nice screw palm that I have painted before.  Its right in front of the bamboo.  I was enjoying doing the in and out lights and darks of the bamboo that  I didn't want to cover my work with another big plant. 

Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.

This painting has been chosen for the 2013 Artists Registry Exhibit which shows two works of art by 80 artists from around the state. 12x24 original oil.

Eco Trip, Oil Painting of Colorful Kayaks on Island Shore by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

This painting continues to draw viewers into it as they want to explore the island with the kayakers who are out counting turtle nests! That was happening when I first saw the kayaks on the sand while I was in a nearby boat. The kayaks belonged to the Marine Discovery Center of Volusia County, FL. Capturing that adventure in oil made an exciting painting experience! The painting has won many awards and most recently was chosen for the city of Casselberry 2014 Art Calendar.

"Serenity on Sanibel" Original Florida Coastal Landscape Painting by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin


This is an oil painting. Approaching the Sanibel Lighthouse from this direction on the pathway, I relished in the colorful, late afternoon skies. What a glorious site and an interesting vantage point of the lighthouse with the dappled sunlight peeking through the trees and onto the shell path.

Oconee Sunset, 8x6 Oil Painting on Canvas by Carmen Beecher

$89 Click to Purchase
This was pure luck. I saw a good sunset coming on and rushed to the shore of Lake Oconee, Georgia. This heron posed for me so nicely amid the pink and purple water. This particular sunset went through many stages of unrealistic brilliant colors and reflections. I will paint more of it, at risk of it looking fake. I'll just have to tone it down.

Fall Landscape Painting, Daily Painting, "Maple Glow" by Carol Schiff, 6x8" Oil

We have just returned from several weeks in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  Everyday I would run to the door as soon as the sun peeked over the mountain to see how the beautiful fall colors had intensified over night. I was not disappointed.

Purchase here
96 + shipping


The sun was back lighting a red maple, giving it a beautiful glow.  I tried to duplicate the colors without falling into the "too garish" trap.



It was a lovely trip, but now I am home and the holidays are looming in the future.  Lots to do with little time available.  I need to take a few deep breaths and all will turn out okay.

"Historic Fishing Village" Original Historic Door, New England Fishing Village by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

I love to look at the lovely homes in the historic fishing villages of New England. These beautiful old homes carry such a story of life in an old seaport town. This one was particularly special. It had beautiful perennial gardens everywhere. The gardens and the stone walkways were placed with great thought and nurtured lovingly. This house overlooked the water and the boats at dock in the harbor. I'm always drawn back to this place and I imagine the family who lived here waiting for their fisherman to return home.
