I usually avoid painting oranges especially with its blue compliment but in this seascape, the colors work well on the shimmering sunset waters. I placed colors of equal value next to each other to capture that luminescence. .
The intense colors on this seascape make it a lively painting. Don't forget to sign up for the workshop in Foley this month. Look to the right of this page and you will see the information. We are going to have a lot of fun and learn some new things!
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.
If you see a painting you would like to buy you can purchase the painting directly from me.
