Morning Clouds

 Painting early morning on the Okatie River in S.Carolina. I am on the end of a pier shaded by a roof looking across the river from the Oldfield Club where I have been staying. The thuderheads rolled swiftly by as two dolphins surfaced on their hunt. An exceptional morning. Not too hot. Nice breeze.  12x12in oil on birch panel .

Plumtree Run

This little stream flows behind my house. I hiked my stuff down to a little waterfall just past a wooden bridge and painted. Good to get outdoors again. I enjoy trying to capture movement, interlocking forms and simplifying all the information(details) until I'm left with a visual record of a peaceful moment .10x10in oil
