"Washington Monument with Cherry Blossoms"

While I have yet to get down to DC and up and close to the Cherry Blossoms I have admired them from the Virginia side of the Potomac!  Our weather has been so crazy this spring that the blossoms probably feel schizophrenic.  Hot cold then hot then cold.  These poor blossoms don't know what to do!  Millions of people flock to Washington DC in the hopes of catching a glimpse of the Japanese blooms.  We are so lucky to have them here.  I love to paint our beautiful city at different times of the year but spring is definitely my favorite season!  I hope you enjoy my rendition of the Washington Monument in spring.

SOLD! View of Kiawah Island

Sold this lovely landscape to a lady in Tennessee.  It now has new home.  Kiawah Island seems to be a popular subject matter.  People probably buy them to remind them of vacations there.  I know I really enjoyed it when I went there last year and painted "Plein Air".

Enjoying the View

I'm now painting my landscapes using the technique of transparent colors first and then adding opaques.  It makes for such a "glow" in the painting.  I like this little gem.  The weather has turned to spring but I'm already thinking of the summer days on the beach.  Just back from a week in Mexico I had to paint a beach painting.  Hope you like it.  It's for sale in my Etsy store.

Sold! Sold! Sold! Sold!

A very busy week for Rebecca Croft Studios!  I sold these four paintings in my Etsy store last week while away on vacation.  Two of these the French Cafe and the Tuscan Vineyard I painted since I've been working on my on-line course.  Clearly, people like the technique.  I'll be finishing up the class this week and working on many more new paintings using it.  I think the transparent colors really shine through in them.
