Clouds Over the Salt Marsh - 6x6

carpinteria daily painting oil painting salt marsh sunrise

First painting since the birth...I'm depressingly rusty! But still probably not the worst painting that I've done, and it's good to get back to it, even for just a little bit.

I had another go at this scene on my normal painting surface...a much different outcome.  

In other news, I dropped off my paintings at the Palm Loft Gallery today! The opening reception is this Saturday (August 27, 2011) 6:00-8:00 pm, I'd love to see you there!  Click here for more info.

Cabrillo Palms - 6x12

I decided to try out these linen panels.  They're smoother than canvas panels, but have more texture than my usual gessobord panel (they're also more expensive).  I haven't decided if I like it or not yet, I'll need to paint a few more and see what happens.

Morning Shadows II - 10x20

I liked the smaller version of this scene so much I knew I had to paint a larger one as well.  Something about early morning sunlight is so invigorating, I think it's my favorite time of day.
