Too Hot To Handle is an oil painting done in the palette knife technique. You can almost feel the extreme heat of the day radiating from the sun to the ground and rising in a fog. Done with a very limited palette.
Meeting with my plein air group...always an adventure. Where will we go this week? Ah! A perfect spot. This wonderful place with its European atmosphere...stunning marina views and high rise living. There's shopping at your fingertips with everything imaginable from art galleries and boutiques to scrumptuous dining...OH and yes, the best little coffee shop ever. Sitting outside and listening to the music and sipping coffee after that delightful meal. Does it get any better?

Okay I have to admit it!!
If I see an interesting dirt road I feel compelled to investigate.
Of course if there is a no trespassing sign with a picture of a gun.. I'll move
Seeing a flicker of a bright melon orange colored cottage through the trees
peeked my interest.
It sat next to a thatch roofed gazebo.
Beyond was an area untouched and full of tropical vegetation. Who lives in this interesting cottage?
This painting is that of a photograph taken by Michael Schor Photography, Rockaway Park, New York. It was painted with Michael's permission. "An observation...(by Michael)...how man made beauty (the boardwalk and buildings) can be destroyed in a day but God's beauty (the sunset) is everlasting." Michael named it " Sunset After Sandy". This is my rendition of that beautiful photograph taken by a very gifted artist.
This painting is SOLD, but prints are available HERE
Capturing Attitude is an oil painting on canvas. It is one of a number of paintings in the Attitude Series. Whether children are at play or at rest, they are so full of joy and wonder, and so excited about everything around them. Yet, after a long day of playing very hard in the water and moving sand around on the beach they become very tired. There is no hiding their emotions, they are a never-ending source of subject matter. Victoria is saying, Grammie, not another picture! Could you resist snapping another shot of this beautiful face?
