This is the earlier Limes that I painted but with some changes to the background color. It is now a warmer and deeper color. Better, I hope.

This is one of my first efforts at loosening up and painting faster. Not too bad, I think....

Memories of Cade's Cove

Memories of Cade's Cove

12x16 Oil on Stretched Canvas

Available for $95 plus $10 shipping
Please contact me.

This painting was done from a lesson. This isn't a specific place, but it does remind me of Cade's Cove, one of my favorite places. If you have ever been there you know how beautiful it is. This painting was from a lesson that I did.  Although this was a learning experience, I really love this one. The stretched canvas is gallery wrapped and beautifully finished on all sides, ready to hang, with or without a frame.

Speaking of learning experiences, some of you know already that I am working on a larger, 2x3 ft. commissioned painting. The buyers are building a beautiful new home. I am spending many hours on it and so have not done any other painting lately. Some of the more recent paintings that are posted are ones that I have done within the last couple of years or so. I am not posting progress on the commissioned painting because I want the buyer to be surprised and hopefully in a good way. They have left it up to me what to do with it, except for requests for using certain colors, and trees and a creek. It is coming along and I think it will be a good one, but I want it to be as good as I am capable of doing, for these special buyers! So, when it is finished, hopefully soon, I will post it then.

I remember as a child playing under a tree whose branches would enclose me. Such a cozy feeling. Just my own little world.  If I wasn't under the tree, I was probably up in it. I still enjoy those memories when I see a tree like that. A warm fuzzy feeling. I love this painting. This was done as a painting lesson.
