Dog Walk

The dog seemed so happy walking along the woman. What struck me was that he kept his owner's pace and did not once, that I could see, stop sniffing or pull the leash into another direction - that's a dream doggie for exercise walking.
I just love the figure in a landscape painting because it brings a closer connection to the viewer. I also like how I can manipulate the feeling of space by the size of the figure.
In case you are wondering, all my outdoor paintings are done on site, not from photographs.

Marsh Tranquility

This painting I finished about one year ago. Last November, I had it entered into the 4th Annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition at Art Gallery 21 in Wilton Manors, Florida. I received an Honorable Mention which was pretty awesome.

Marsh Lily Pads

This painting was done on location in the marsh of the nearby park. A magical place which is the perfect hang-out for fish, birds, water turtles and alligators. Here, my attention was drawn to the layers of colors. Hope you enjoy this image as much as it was for me to paint.

Sunflower Bunch

Here I played with the composition and decided on sunflowers being on top of the table and not in a vase.
