"Twilight Diner"

Thank you to my son for naming this little painting.  The roadside eatery is actually a chain restaurant but as we were approaching it in the dark it evoked a much more romantic emotion of nostalgia.

Clearwater Florida on the Cauesway Original Oil Daily Impressionism


"Clear Day"
2016
oil on  panel

A perfect day for the beach.  From our Spring travels.

The kids are off school for the summer so I am still figuring out the best time to paint.  Early mornings seem to be best but I just set up n easel on the screen porch so that may be helpful also.

Nightfall Nocturne Impressionist Landscape Stars Twinkling


"Nightfall"
2016
oil on panel 
6x6"

That beautiful moment when the sun fades and the brightest stars and planets become visible.   
I always wanted to be an artist but considered being a surgical nurse or an astronomer, hmm...quite the variety!  I am drawn to the stars like some are to the ocean.  I find peace, comfort and a closeness to our creator.  Looking at the stars makes one's worries feel much smaller and less significant.
Anyway, this painting seemed to paint itself.  I was really in the moment.  I wish that could happen more often then again it wouldn't be so special if it did.

Summer is here and the waterbugs are out.  I actually had this photo hanging in the cloud for about a year and finally getting around to painting it.  This reference photo is from a challenge over at Daily Paintworks.  I love the complimentary colors of sun-kissed skin in the cool waters.  The paint is still wet so there is some glare, I will re-post a better pic when it dries.

This is the first in a series of three.  The colors of the wet meadow were so jewel like.  Even the weeds were beautiful.   This series of paintings has such a pastel feeling to them due to the dry brush method used.

On mother's day we set up a badminton set for the day.  The birdies were a bit mangled and flying in all directions.  The older kids decided to the store to get new birdies.  They came home so excited, they found a bocce ball set on clearance!  We played all afternoon.

Early Light Morning Landscape Original Oil Painting


"Early Light"
oil on panel
6x6"

This painting is in the raw.  I used the color of the un-primed panel as part of the painting.  I have a few of these in my collection and just love the effect.  The panel is sanded and I have some of these paintings that are 10 years old and have held up as well as primed surfaces.  I like the violet light of the hazy early light.
