Very proud of my latest wildflower painting! The colors and shapes are more vivid than previous wildflower paintings. I didn’t hold back at all.

I think I will do one or two more from this wildflower patch and then move on. So glad I took some files of this patch. It was in someone’s backyard and has been mowed down. I hate to see that happen and gladly preserve them in a painting.

I will have it up in my portfolio soon. I am putting the finishing touches on it now. Real pleased with my latest fantasy lily demo youtube below. Be sure to check it out.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate it! I know we will.

Really into wildflowers right now. My latest wildflower oil painting is coming along and this week’s Youtube is a small wildflower painting that could be a detail of my large one but it is in acrylics and not as complex.

Wildflowers seem to dance to me. I talk about that in my Youtube. My most popular wildflower painting is Natural Rhythm. The way the flowers wind in and out of the space has always fascinated me.

I am really getting into many different types of paintings on Youtube and I love the comments I get! Such a great audience and I am so much more comfortable now then when I started posting demos. I have a lot of fun with painting and chatting at the same time.

Always great to sell original mountain paintings and prints. This time a great North Carolina patron bought a large print of The Great Smoky mountains.

Not much to talk about today. My latest wildflower painting is coming along and I haven’t injured myself lately. Yea!

I am so glad to sell another print of The Lodge at The Peaks of Otter to a great Georgia patron. I have always been fascinated by architecture and took many architecture classes when I was studying for my MFA in Painting and Printmaking.

I have many paintings that include buildings and homes. Many of them no longer exist so I am especially pleased that I preserved them in paint.

The Peaks of Otter is such a great part of The Blue Ridge Parkway which is a small strip of mountains in Virginia and North Carolina. I have included other paintings from this beautiful mountain range in this post. Check them out!

So glad my eye doesn’t look like someone clobbered me anymore. It certainly took a long time clear up. Now I can get back to all of my activities.

One thing I will not do is lift something that causes too much strain. That is when I get this problem. Both times in my right eye. I was able to hang two small paintings today that are very light. Most of my paintings are a few pounds up to around ten but I have a few that are heavier.

Anyway, I am so pleased to be on another wildflower painting! I love to paint intricate florals that have leaves and stems running through out the scene.

So pleased to sell another print of Beach Houses at Pawleys Island! Glad my shore scenes are so popular. This one is a favorite that has a great home. Prints are always available.

My eye is just about better and I am holding myself down and taking it easy for one more week. I am not going to go right back into all my activities and injure myself again.

I wish there were some sort of gauge we could wear that tells us we are working too hard or not hard enough. I’d buy that in a second.

I am very pleased to present my latest wildflower painting, A Circle of Coneflowers. So happy with the sensual surface of this work and the delicate but colorful light effect on the flowers.

I had some fun with my latest Youtube! I got into the Halloween spirit and did a wild, expressionistic Jack of Lantern. Check it out below!

My eye still looks awful and I made it worse. It was looking somewhat better on Thursday morning so I did my online Yoga class.

Friday morning all of the white was covered in blood so I went to the Opthamalogist and she said I should not do anything that increases my heart rate until my eye is better. She said I can walk very slowly but that is it.

I am also staying off the computer most of the time and just doing the bare minimum. Yuck!

I am just leaving the paintings up from last time and just changing the Youtube. Time to put my eye patch back on and take a slow walk.

Workaholics never learn. I did too much lifting yesterday and not only did I hurt my back but the strenuous effort caused vessels in my right eye to break so now the eye is half covered in blood. Looks awful.

This happened a long time ago when I did the same thing and was so relieved to hear from my ophthalmologist that the strain was what caused the vessels to break. It was a scary thing to see blood in my eye in the mirror since no one punched me.

Anyway, I am so pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Parkway painting to a great Virginia Beach patron. I spoke with her after it was delivered and she loves it! She is considering purchasing others.

As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available with the link. I am just going to leave the paintings up from the last blog to save on some eye strain but be sure to look at my latest video below. A little Halloween fun!

Glad to see another sale of Richmond on the James to a great Richmond, VA patron! I am very proud of all of my creative interpretations of various skylines and hope to get back to that series soon.

Right now I have been inspired by some beautiful wildflowers that are located near my new home. I think it is great that wildflower seeds can be purchased and people can decorate their surroundings with them.

Cultivated flowers are beautiful but I love the natural flow of space that occurs with the interaction of wild blooms.

Anyway, still arranging things and just mailed out another Blue Ridge oil painting that I will include in my next blog. Got to get back to my easel.

It is always great to have more print sales of my most popular shore painting, Marsh View at Pawleys Island. This time prints went out to a great patrons in South Carolina and Maryland.

This is one of my favorite paintings and it is the largest painting I have done so far. I may do another large one now that I have a bigger studio. I finally found some time to paint on my main work and it is coming along. I have a good idea for another fast Youtube painting that I did today.

Time to get to all the things I am doing on the new house. We have been here a month but there is still so much to do in a completely new space with organization.

Still sorting things out and getting rid of stuff from years ago that we just don’t need or want anymore. The new house is shaping up and we just have a little to do to finish the old one. I knew this would be a lot of work but I thought it would be a little easier.

Love my new house! If I don’t get back to painting soon I will have a problem. Have to paint so I am just going to have to squeeze it in somewhere. We have a house and I would like to get it in perfect order but there is no stop watch. It will happen and my oil paints are calling me.

The Youtube paintings help but I have got to get back to oils paintings that require many layers. Rushed for time today so I will leave up the paintings from last time. Cheers!
