This figurative oil beach scene was done with heavy layers of oil paint using both palette knife and a large brush. I subdued the colors a bit by graying them down. I left out all the men hoovering around this statuesque beach beauty.
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.
