Up the Creek

(click image to enlarge)
"Up the Creek," oil, 36x24

I love this painting.  It gives the feeling that you are standing right in the middle of this beautiful place.  The light on the water makes it seem as if the water is actually flowing UP!  hee hee.  Greens, blues, rich mauves all give this painting a realistic feeling of the cool mountain creeks.

 Wanderer Series
12x12 oil

Adding a little color to the winter.  Wanted to see how far I could push the color and it still be "believable."  Now we know!  heh

I have had another change of direction.  After doing several figurative works over the summer, landscapes are back on the easel for a while.  Here's a small one to get me started.

Here is another demo from my Thursday class at Corley Mill Studio.  This is a painting of my husband on the trail at Huntington Beach State Park.  I love the feeling of scale caused  by the large tree and the small figure.

New Landscapes

"Wednesday Morning,"  oil, 11x14

"Wednesday Afternoon," oil, 11x14

Still working on hard on figurative work, but took a break to demonstrate to my classes at Corley Mill Artists' Group the joy of painting trees.  I believe I convinced a few of them!

This is a transition piece for me.  I have been doing landscapes for quite a while now.  The transition to more figurative work is symbolized in this work.  Be on the lookout for new and exciting things from me!
