Marsh Light

I thought I would put in today one of my latest oil paintings.  I am really pleased with how this turned out.  It is done mainly with palette knife on canvas board 12" by 16" with various oil colors.  This painting makes me happy with the beautiful colors that bring light in to this scene.  Please enjoy it as much as I do.  Thank you all for coming in and commenting or just having a look.

Bring in the CLouds , An Award Winner

Good Morning
     I am so sorry I haven't been keeping up with this blog, as much as I should.  But most of September and part of October my time has been taken up with my husband's illness. Thankfully now it is in the past and my Jim is doing great.  I am a member of Seacoast Artist Guild here in South Carolina.  On Friday the 7th Annual Fall Art Show and Sale held their opening. Surprise  Surprise I won an award for my oil painting Bring in the Clouds.  I was awarded Honorable Mention by judge Rose Metz, in her comments on why I won, she stated Beautiful execution, Loved the cloud work and Delightful colors.  I am very proud since this is only the second judged show that I have entered.   So I'm happy to share this wonderful news with all friends here.    This is a photo of me excepting the award.
