Cindy's Place

Cindy's Place
5x7 Oil on Board

Here's a new one. The marsh lands of South Carolina's lowcountry are a very special subject matter for me. It is where I feel most connected with my family. We are from Sullivan's Island and Charleston SC since 1819. Family time was often spent on the "back beach" - or in the marshes.

Thanks for all the recent encouragement.

My friend grew this pear. It was a great "daily" painting subject.

Colorful Evening

Well, still trying to keep up. Painted all day on large painting. Then, around 4:00 pm, I painted a small painting for this blog. It was fun. Slapping around the paint helped loosen me up after a day of painting fairly tightly.

Got a another daily painting today - after a long session on a bigger painting. Will post the bigger one when it gets a little further along.

Lots to Do

But no small paintings for days! Got some panels and a light box ready though. Also took some time to give a very important art lesson. This is my nephew Bobby who was having a summertime visit.

Late Night with Inky

"Inky 1"5x7, Oil on Board $99
Contact artist at

This is Inky a/k/a Pretty Boy. He's a little on the strange side, but that's why I love him.
Painting a small painting everyday and still keeping up with my regular workload of larger pieces is going to be a challenge. I waited too late to get started on this yesterday. I didn't finish until about 11:30 pm, which is why I am posting today. I will have to plan for this in the future. One interesting thing that happened was that the later it got, the more stylized Inky got! I don't usually paint that way, so it was a fun, interesting development. Got my wheels turning about doing all my cats that way.

This little fellow was in my tomato bushes this morning. He was just so strangely beautiful that he was instantly the subject matter for the painting of the day. I have no clue what type of animal he is or will be. Anybody out there know? Please tell me.

More Berries

"Berries in Glass"

5x7, Oil on Board
$99 Contact artist

The berries were still in good shape, and this little glass vase was calling my name. So, this was my project for today. My favorite part is where one of the berries fell into the vase. I also like the overall warmth of the picture.

A Berry Good Morning

Had a nice morning walking in the woods with my husband. I cut these berries to paint my first daily painting for this blog. Don't know if anyone is looking yet, but thought it would be best to get started.
