You will find some of my landscape paintings on this page. My painting roots are in landscapes.
It was fun painting these Country Barns” on a trip to New England. It was the very first time to see the beautiful New England fall colors.
The shadows and sunlight on the front barn especially intrigued me. The barns are different styles as often happens when they are built years apart.
My mother was a Bill Alexander instructor and she started me painting with landscapes.
She taught me the Alexander method of painting mountains. (Bill Alexander taught Bob Ross.)
I love the outdoors and it is a blessing painting and sharing with others! You can find all that I have learned on the painting basics and how-to pages.
I had the privilege of living in Florida for more than thirty years.
The sky is beautiful there. And there are lots of Cypress trees.
Here is a "Cypress Sunset" with a white egret in the shadow of the tree.
"Winter Wonderland" is a winter in the high Sierra Nevada Mountains, where I was born.
The snow can be very beautiful, but not so much when you have to work or travel in it. So later, my family moved down to the valley where the climate was friendlier.
This painting is in my private collection with memories attached. So it is not one of the landscape paintings for sale.
This "Swamp Maple" tree on the edge of a mill pond was showing off its beautiful fall colors. The beautiful leaves against the cool water and sky made a nice landscape painting.
It was so pretty and it just cried out to be painted.
The middle of Florida has a prairie area with Sabal Palms and numerous lakes.
The Sabal Palm is the Florida state tree.
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 open prairie.
The gallery owner where I had landscape paintings on display asked me, "Where is this lighthouse?"
I told her God gave me the idea and I just painted what He showed me. 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.
Do you find seascapes intriguing? It's good to practice painting and sometimes I do a small practice painting before painting a larger piece. "Wave Practice"
On gulf coast of Florida many of homes are built on stilts for protection from the storms. Here are some stilt houses on a "Cedar Key Canal".
We lived in a stilt house at one time and docked our boat under the house. Lots of fun!
"Honeymoon Cottage" is one of the many stilt homes built out in the bays of the gulf side of Florida.
This home was a Cedar Key landmark for many years. The tropical storms have now sent it to heaven.
Can't you just hear the surf crashing as the Sandpipers are running to beat the waves? "Surf Runners"
I love the ocean and the mountains. I can't help but to do some more paintings.
The end of the rainbow. What's at the end of your rainbow? "God's Promise"
