Shady Spot


 Oil on 10x8 Gallery wrap canvas

I'm still working through my pictures of the grounds of the Chateau des Alpilles in St. Remy in Provence.  The grounds had these gorgeous huge trees that must have been hundreds of years old, they were just very impressive and very beautiful.

On another note, it's summer time and we're going on vacation!  I won't be blogging for a few weeks and when I get back, I know I will be excited and ready to get back to painting!  Hope you're all having a great summer!

Grand Hotel


 Oil on 8x10 Gallery wrap canvas 

This is another painting from St. Remy in Provence.  The hotel which is called Chateau des Alpilles is beautiful and I loved the sun coming through the gigantic trees and making all these shadows on the ground and on the front of the hotel.  It's a very old grand house with tall doors and beautiful interiors.  In the evening, they set up tables and chairs right in the front courtyard and serve dinner.

Sunset on the Water


 Oil on 10x8 Gallery wrap canvas

This is a commission I did for a friend of mine for Father's day.  This was from a picture taken on one of their trips.  I think the colors of the sunset reflecting in the water are just beautiful!

On another note, the kids are on vacation now and I'm wondering when I'm going to have time to'll be so easy to get busy with all the other stuff going on...I'm going to have to set a schedule and I haven't done that in years!!!!  Anyone have any suggestions?

Oil on 11x14 Gallery wrap canvas

A friend of mine's parents live in Beaufort, SC and have this beautiful view from their backyard. I loved painting the huge tree and imagining sitting in those Adirondack chairs relaxing!
