landscape paintings

bring the peace and beauty
of the outdoors into your home
with beautiful landscape paintings

You will find some of my landscape paintings on this page. My painting roots are in landscapes. My mother was a Bill Alexander instructor and she taught me how to paint.

I love the outdoors and it is a blessing painting and sharing with others!

"Country Barns" won a best of show award.

“Country Barns” was painted on a trip to New England. It was the first time to see the New England fall colors.

The shadows and sunlight on the front barn especially intrigued me. The barns are different styles as happens when they are built years apart.

Fine Art America has close-up views of my paintings.

This "Swamp Maple" tree on the edge of a mill pond was showing off its beautiful fall colors.

The middle of Florida has a prairie area with Sabal Palms and numerous lakes.

It's common to see Egrets and other birds fly by on their way to go catch some frogs or fish.

It's a lovely area often missed by the tourists.

Here is a "Lone Egret" flying across the prairie.

God's Lighthouse an oil seascape painting by Carol MayGod's Lighthouse

The gallery owner where I had landscape paintings on display asked me, "Where is this lighthouse?"

I told her God gave me the idea, so I called the painting, "God's Lighthouse".

Jesus is our lighthouse in any and all situations. We can always find our security in Him.
