Below is a 14x18 or 16x20 (can't remember) acrylic on wooden panel painting of Greenland- for my Danish sister and her new husband! I miss that family!!! I've never seen a landscape like this with my own eyes, but enjoyed the challenge of painting a landscape totally unfamiliar to me! First the photo:
And the finished painting:
Thanks for following!

Sunrise praise!

Below is the development if a 24"x36" acrylic on canvas painting commissioned by a very sweet neighbor! We worked from  colors of the fabrics in her living room and were trying to capture a peaceful meadow at sunrise. Psalm 113:3 says " From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,the name of the Lord is to be praised. " the reference is inscribed above the signature per request- I love it!
We started with a berry red base:
I missed a few steps- sorry.
More detail in the foreground:
I'll try to get a picture of it framed and hanging in the room! I'm excited with the way it turned out, and thankful for such sweet neighbors!

Color in my life!

Below you can watch the development of a 24x36 abstract for one of the best friends ever! The color scheme largely came from some bright colored fabric- we tweaked the color scheme slightly, and drew inspiration from abstract artists Harrison blackford and Michelle armas, neither if which I've had the pleasure of meeting... Perhaps one day!

Closer view:
The fabric you can see below. If you have a room you are in the process of decorating, or a space that's never felt quite finished, a painting with a custom color palette can be a great way to pull things together! Keep me in mind :)

Hillside wedding

Below is an 11x14 acrylic on canvas painting of a beautiful  field where a pretty cool cousin was married this fall! See the photograph from which it was painted at the bottom! I never paint mountain scenes- not a whole lot of mountains here in the Lowcountry I guess!


Thanks for checking it out!
