Good morning. Well Turkey week has come and gone and today is the 1st of December. My goodness. We are moving quickly to a New Year and 2016. Of course we have Christmas coming up a truly wonderful day for all. 

 I have been painting pretty much every day since Thanksgiving so lets look at these two paintings.

"Folly Beach Marsh Sunrise" is a painting I had in mind since our trip to Charleston SC nearly two years ago. Folly Beach is just outside of Charleston. I did an Acrylic of the marsh and wanted to do it again with watercolors this time. We were their in the evening but I thought this time lets make it early morning with the sun coming up kind of 7 AM coffee time. The painting is 18x24 matted watercolor on 300# paper.

"Back Door  Storm" is another painting I did recently, I think over the last 3 years I have painted  plains pictures with clouds 3 times and the other two have sold so I had to refer back to the original paintings photos to get my Mid West feel to do this painting. Something about the panhandle of Texas (where I lived as a kid) and Oklahoma that you can see for miles and miles from your back porch or yard. 

 This painting is 16x20 matted, mixed media with modeling paste, watercolor and ink on 300# paper.

Ok thats it for this week. Down to my last sheet of 300# paper so if my order doesn't come in I will be doing my art on panels again which isn't a bad idea.

 Have a blessed week and talk again soon. See Ya!
