Snowy Chapel Winter Landscape daily oil painting

It is not officially winter yet but we have had snow already. This painting is dry and ready for shipment. I actually painted this last December. I am still working on a few commissions before Christmas. If you see a painting on this site that you really like but it is sold, feel free to ask if I could paint a similar one, chances are I may be able to for you. This painting is called "Snowy Chapel" I used to live near this quaint little chapel. 6x6" oil on masonite.

"Summer Haze" original plein air beach painting


Summer Haze

Hello! It has been a busy summer, a new address, a new baby!! Our fourth child was born 3 weeks ago! All is well here. I hope to be painting by the end of summer so please come by and check out more beach paintings to come.

The title comes from the fact that we have had a misty ocean spray everyday this week making the horizon blend right in with the sky. Thankful for another beautiful day on the beach. As I have mentioned before, I love to paint right on the beach with all the people out doing their thing. So relaxing and theraputic. This year my husband set up an easy-up awning thing to paint under, which was great.
(oops, disregard the cardboard in the lower left hand of the picture of this painting, I didn't realize at the time it was in the pic.
