Back Bay

12 x 16 oil on linen

A scene from the back bay in Biloxi.  I love the water and looking at the boats and their reflections in the water.

Magnolias #1

12 x 16 oil on canvas panel

Playing with acrylics this afternoon and trying to paint magnolias in an abstract fashion.   This is the state flower for Mississippi and it is beautiful and has a wonderful fragrance but it is very difficult to paint without a stiff look;  the petals are so thick and perfect looking.

Little Mozart

12 x 16 oil on stretched canvas

Loved this photo so decided to paint it.  I see a few areas I need to re-visit but overall I like the composition.  This is my  5 year old great niece who was trying out the piano at a Bed and Breakfast in the MS Delta.

Pink Peonies

12 x 16 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

Since it is so gloomy and dark out today, thought I would try something with acrylics to see if I could brighten my mood and the day!  I haven't worked with acrylics much in the last few years and it is definitely a different feel to the mixing, blending, etc. plus the colors just seem more saturated.
