This little guy comes to my feeder regularly. I thought about naming it Hummingbird in Grape Tree. The little pods are actually in the crepe myrtle tree where I have my feeder, but they really look a lot like grapes.
If you are a regular visitor, you noticed that my prices went up a little because art supplies went way up!! Buying quality materials is very expensive. Thanks for visiting and if you have any questions or would like to buy the hummingbird email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This a painting of the lovely downtownFairhope, Alabama. Enchanting is the word that truly describes this picturesque little town on Mobile Bay. The whole town is always planted with beautiful flowers.
This is the finished painting. I made a few changes with the pencils and a few minor highlights. This image looks a little washed out on this computer monitor. The actual colors on the painting are pretty rich. If you are interested in purchasing this painting or have questions email me at email@example.com
Today, I did not want to paint at all. I am tired tired tired. Considering this, I think this little painting turned out pretty good. I would like to do it again on a day I feel more energized to see how it would turn out. I have painted two other paintings this week, that I will post at a later date. One is a larger fish painting and the other a little painting to enter in a show.
These folks were at the pass in Gulf Shores on the bay side. The weather here is in the 80s everyday now, so it is the perfect time to go to the beach. Reflections in the water are always fun to do. Again, catching the gesture of the figures can really tell a story.
This is another demonstration I did in my workshop. This little painting was a lot of fun to do. Catching the simple gesture of the figures with as few strokes as possible is a major element in the charm of this painting.
I have been painting since the first grade when teacher made me draw the Santa Claus on the blackboard for Christmas. (Of course that was pre ACLU). I am from Holly Springs, Mississppi originally, a small town in Northeastern Mississippi, where I had my first real art lessons from the local artist. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southern Mississippi. After college I lived, painted and studied in New Orleans.
Currently I live in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama with my husband Ed.
I love painting figures, still lifes, beach scenes, or just about anything else that gives me the opportunity to play with color and shapes.
My goal in painting is to have fun creating a visual feast for you to enjoy, all to the glory of God.
