Painting the landscape is so enjoyable especially with the variety of vegetation year round. I was inspired to paint the hellebores (Lenten Rose) which are full of beautiful bell shaped blooms in the spring. "Sharing The Blessing" , an oil landscape painting of the southern landscape, is a donation for a fundraising event for The Atlanta Artists Center.

I once heard that in order to convey confidence in life "you gotta have attitude".
I believe the young woman in this oil painting is someone I would like to spend more time with!
Don't you love the color green I used for the chair! Even the chair has attitude!
Marty Robbins had a huge hit song in 1957 titled "A White Sport Coat". The popular hit record came to mind while I was painting these lovely little carnations! Marty sang about a white sport coat and a pink carnation; I am humming this song in my mind as I write! "Pink Carnation" is an oil floral still life painting done from life in my studio. Having always been one of my favorite flowers, don't you agree that these compact bloomers smell just so sweet!!!

This magnificent southern live oak tree (that you see here in my painting) used to hang over the Chattahoochee River and grace all who passed by. Over the years, I've had the privilege of rendering my impression of this tree on canvas. Last year, the parks department must have felt that the decay in the tree had taken its toll and they had it cut down. I miss this tree. I used to sit on the bench underneath its canopy and watch the river swiftly flow by. I'm so glad I have the photos to refer to whenever I feel the urge to paint a memory.
This 30"x40" acrylic painting on canvas is titled, "The Hastening Tree". The original hangs in my personal collection, but it's available to purchase in a limited edition giclee. To contact me, please CLICK HERE.
