I love the way that ice and snow cover the beaches in winter, so here’s a picture I painted of the beach at Ludington. The fun part was getting the grains of sand in! I also love painting the lighthouse there, and capturing the patches of ice in the front.
One of the harbingers of spring in Michigan is the arrival of the rose breasted grosbeak, a beautiful bird. A few days ago, my roommate got a good pic of one, so I had to paint him. Here’s the result (sorry about the glare from wet paint on this):
I took a photo of some seagulls a few months ago near Lake Michigan (Ludington beach), and decided to paint them. I call it “The Gathering’ because these little guys do love to gather together!
I decided to put one of my older paintings (from two years ago) up. I had fun painting the water lilies in the bayou that runs beneath a small bridge in East Texas.
I love painting water and reflections, and the subtle greens and browns.
