FIVE SISTERS

18 X 24 OIL ON CANVAS  SOLD
I painted this similar to a smaller painting with four ladies.
My customer wanted one with five ladies to give the impression of her with four sisters.  This larger painting is a bit more detailed and took  a few days to complete.

WINDY DAY AT THE BEACH PASTEL FIGURE STUDY

12 X 10 PASTEL ON CANSON PAPER
This is probably my favorite of the quick studies.  I spent no more than 15 min on this ...no time to get  fussy and overwork the painting.
Speaking of windy days..we had pleny of that last night with hurricane Nate here on the Gulf Coast.
Not one tree or branch in my swimming pool....yeah!   I can feel for all those that weren't so fortunate with the other storms as I went thru Ivan, Katrina, and even Hugo (when I lived in Charleston).  Questions...click:

A JOYFUL NOISE BY ELIZABETH BLAYLOCK

12 X 10 PASTEL SKETCH ON HEAVYWEIGHT CANSON PAPER
I did several quick pastel sketches a few weeks ago concentrating on the gesture of the figure.
I limited my time to 15 minutes each.  I have about six more of these to show in the following week or two.
This is a good way to warm up if you haven't painted regularly in a while.  They were fun anyway.

TREASURED MEMORIES by Elizabeth Blaylock

12 x 12 oil on wood panel
Beautiful little girl and boy on the glorious Gulf Shores, Alabama Beach, totally enjoying just splashing in the surf of the ocean.   They have tossed cares to the wind!  
I am sure that the parents are lovingly watching over them as our father in heaven watches over us.
They know it in their very being!

Luke 12: 6-7
 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
