KM2678 Copper Melody (floral, poppies, garden, contemporary, original fine art)

This a painting that I did as a demo at Longcoat Fine Art Gallery on Labor Day weekend during a show hosted for all of us at Brushstrokes Studio. I met many wonderful and inquisitive people as I was creating this piece. Doing demos is a challenge while being asked questions as you work but it also forces the artist to really focus tight to avoid messing up a painting as you are "on stage". I was really pleased with how this came out and had only a few final touches to add to it when I returned to the studio.

KMD2676 Mirror Image (Autumn, New England, Fall, reflections, waterscape, fall painting)

One of my themes this past year and currently is reflections.This scene was found on another travel adventure to New England a few years ago and oh, the reflections there! It was mesmerizing to see the brilliant fall colors on the shore of a lake and then the added bonus of the entire scene mirrored in the waters. I just love getting lost in the mirror images leaving me in a state of wonder and imagination. With the cool fall days and the warm, warm colors it is a perfect place to experience.

KMD2673 Poppies Galore (poppy, floral, gardens, original art)

Here is one last hurrah for the poppies as fall has moved in here in Colorado. Summer has waned and fall is in the air now with the light lower and the nighttime temperatures lending us good sleeping. I do however, have so much poppy reference that I had to paint just one more and will probably be motivated to do more as we head into the cooler months ahead.

KM2674 Waimea Beckons ( ocean, Hawaii, Kauai, landscape, waterscape)

Here is a commission I just finished for a client to go in their new Kauai home. It was such a joy to paint as I am so enamored with painting ocean and boat scenes. Living in Colorado is the best but I do miss the salt air, sound of the surf and luscious colors of the ocean that is missing from the Rocky Mountains!
This painting is 36"x60" and was painted primarily with a palette knife. After all my small daily paintings it was a shock as to how much paint goes into one this size! I love the freedom of doing these large ones.

I am off to Ruidoso, NM where Longcoat Fine Art Gallery is hosting a show for myself and my partners at Brushstrokes. I will be doing a demo during the day on Saturday.

KMD2671 Fall Stroll (landscape, fall, autumn, Colorado, original fine art)

The park where I walk my dog everyday is full of painting ideas, especially in the fall. I suppose after all of our hot days of August, I am jumping the gun for fall and will soon be complaining about the cold! Obviously, I painted this piece from a photo taken last year and anticipate another colorful season this year. 5"x7" unframed original oil $125.00 + $10.00 shipping and handling
