SOLD! "Angel"

12 x 12 
Oil on Canvas Board

About a month ago I was contacted by a lovely patron on Etsy asking me to reserve this painting for her.  She is going through chemo therapy and said that the painting of this Angel would be a great comfort to her.  So she just purchased it!  I'm so happy this is going to a new home where it will be loved.  I do hope it helps her through her rough days.

Carolina Sunset

"Carolina Sunset"

I was working on altering my brush strokes while painting this landscape.  Landscapes are my favorite subject to paint.  There is something so peaceful yet at the same time exciting for me in painting skies and water.  I really like the way I left some of the underpainting showing through in the water and how the brush strokes turned out in the marsh grasses.  I like to paint sunsets because as you know I love color.  I almost always add purple, pink & peach to my skies even if it's very light around the clouds.  This can be purchased from my Etsy store.
