Here's another little lake piece (6" x 8" oil) that I did the same day as its predecessor below. The foreground features Mountain Laurel, a lovely flowering shrub unique to the area that only blooms this time of year. Since I have gotten some requests, I've decided to add paypal buttons to some of these new pieces in case you're interested in a purchase. They're nearly dry now. If you see others that interest you - let me know and I'll make more buttons. Thanks for your interest. (Note: this one and the previous one sold already. More coming soon).

Here's the first little (6" x 8") oil I did a few days ago at the start of my art residency in South Carolina. It's a view of the Old Levi Mill Lake near the park headquarters. I could photograph and paint just at this lake every day for a week and never tire of it. I just have to watch out for the alligators and water moccasins (both of which I've seen).
The location for my art residency is Poinsett Park, located near Sumter, SC. Due to its location, it's an unique merging of several different ecosystems, such as coastal plains and woodland foothills. There are creeks, swamps, mountains, a lake, pine forests, and tons of Spanish moss - it's lovely.

Well, I'm not exactly doing the "painting a day" as planned, but I have been painting away lately. I just left a workshop in South Carolina and I'm now doing a week-long art residency, also in South Carolina, before heading back to Ohio and the new gallery (Springs Gallery: www.springsgallery.blogspot.com). Check us out if you're in the area! In the meantime, here's the first of my new pieces. It's an 8" x 10" oil titled "Afternoon at the Marsh."
