Blue Ridge Church Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x10" Oil Painting

This is one of the many, small, white, churches, found in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They all have their own charm, and I love driving around in search of them.

Purchase here

The beauty of the red tree, was an added bonus, to my find, but, this is a charming scene, anytime of the year.  It pays to have your cell phone with you!

Have a great day!

On my Way to Hollywood!, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

An unexpected, but exciting thing has happened!

Warner Brothers has purchased one of my paintings, for set design in their new movie "Romeo".

SOLD
The movie is filming now, in Brooklyn, starring Joaquin Phoenix.  I believe it is scheduled for release in the fall of 2019.

I have been so fortunate, as I am currently under contract with CBS, to use two seascapes, in their TV series PI Magnum and Hawaii Five-O.

SOLD


SOLD
  I know what you are thinking.........How did this happen?  How did they find you?

Well, both of these contacts were made through my site on Etsy.  I did nothing to attract these offers, other than regularly post on Etsy and maintain a presence online.  It can happen to you too!

Good luck!!

Still Life, Watercolor Fine Art Painting "2 EGGPLANTS" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Purple is by far my favorite color! I had fun doing these 2 eggplants as a part of my online watercolor class demonstrations. I used lots of strong color to get the bold dark almost black purple and hardly any color on the variegated one. It was challenging and I enjoy pushing myself in different directions, learning just how far I can push the paint. This listing is for the original and ships free in the continental USA. All other inquires please contact the artist for shipping costs.

November Seascape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 5x7" Oil on panel

We are back in Florida, to spend the holidays with our family.  It is so wonderful to be back on the coast.

Purchase Here
 Smelling the salt air, hearing rhythmic sound of the waves and screeching sea gulls.  Life is good when you have sand between your toes!



What can be more soothing than the waves rushing to shore?

I have to admit, I don't have the courage to paint on the beach.  This piece was done using a photo I took, during my morning walk.

Have a beachy day!

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature, "ATALA BUTTERFLY AND COONTIE" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




The Atala Butterfly, Eumaeus atala, once thought to be extinct, is native to Florida. The host plant is the Florida coontie (Zamia floridana), which is a cycad, or "living fossil," The Atala can tolerate the natural toxins in coonties and uses the accumulated toxins and its brilliant coloration as a defense against bird predators. The female lays her eggs, five to fifteen, usually, on coontie stalks The butterfly emerges in the early morning, courts and mates in the late afternoon, and dies within ten days.

Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting, "Kayaking II" Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Kayaking is always an adventure. One day I was thrilled to see two eagles soaring against the beautiful blue sky engaged in their acrobatic tumbling dance. You never know what is around the next corner. Alligators, or maybe today I'll come across a manatee...such gentle giants. The possibilities are endless!

Seagull Painting, Wildlife Painting, Bird Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting,

I love color, especially all the luscious paint colors available. I decided to shake things up a bit.  I painted with a limited palette of only one red, one blue, one yellow and white.  This was rather confining for me.  To make it even a little more difficult, I chose to paint a scene without much color of any type.


Purchase here
I was pleasantly surprised by the beautifully harmonious results.  The color, in this piece is very subtle, but none the less, I enjoy it!

Jonathan Livingston Seagull lives on!


I will be trying this technique again!

Original Red Hibiscus Oil Painting, Floral Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" SOLD

One of the joys  of living in Florida are the almost year round flowers in our landscapes.  Hibiscus is one of the most used here, and with good reason.  They are easy to grow, beautiful and available in many colors and one of the first to bloom in the spring and late in the winter season.


This one is a study in reds.  Elio Camacho states that red is the most difficult color to paint.  When you can paint a "red" painting, you have arrived (in the art world).

This does not qualify as a "red" painting in my mind.  A "red" study usually has several red objects, each with it's own shades of red.

detail


Still, this is good practice.

Elio likes to present his more advanced students with set ups that are all yellow, or blue, or green etc.  It is only the bravest who attempt the dreaded "all red" set up.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Beautiful flowers of North Carolina

Last month we were enjoying our condo in North Carolina, trying to get it ready for visits from family and friends.  It is so beautiful here during at least three of the four seasons.  I have not been here in winter and cannot speak to that, although I imagine the snow covered mountains would be a sight to behold.

On this trip, there are flowers blooming everywhere.  Each morning, I set out for a walk, with my trusty camera in hand.  Come along with me.......

A garden of hosta
Calla Lily
Rose abound!
Begonia
A cute little playhouse, or maybe a gardening shed?
Sit for a moment and enjoy the scenery.
Mountains surround the area,
Who knew day lilies grown wild?
I love purple flowers.  Do you know their name?




My goal is to interpret many of these scenes in oil in the coming months




Thanks for reading my blog today.
