The light and atmosphere in between are a challenge to capture on canvas in a way that can portray the fragility and beauty of the natural world. Imagining the past through the observation of elements in the landscape … a meandering path in a field, a copse of elderly trees, broken fences…all have stories to be revealed.” Choctawhatchee Bay Inlet Oil on linen 14.75 x 16.75 $450 Anne Calhoun

Garity J Into The Night oil

Garity J Into The Night oil

Most of my paintings are of places real & imagined. They begin with rough shapes & a pattern of light & dark & are then developed with layers of opaque paint & glazes. Under layers peeking through providing interest & visual texture. Use of the palette knife in places also provides a randomness that provokes creativity & often takes me on a path I had not planned. All in all, the painting is more of a reaction to the process than a blueprint. Into the Night Oil 14 x 12 $385 Jill Garity

Wiese, Allison-Big Jumper

Wiese, Allison-Big Jumper

I find myself drawn to painting water related subjects-an escape from being landlocked, but I also see each piece as a love letter to the most precious parts of our earth just underneath the surface of our oceans. I enjoy playing with colors and patterns in big ocean waves and large fish, such as marlin, sharks, and sailfish. Barracudas’ under bites are particularly endearing as is the color in tarpons’ giant scales. Big Jumper Pastel 22 x 26 $725 Allison Wiese

Wine Linda An Homage to Matisse and the sea Acrylic

This is the view from Matisse’s window in Collioure, on the Mediterranean coast of France, where he and Derain stayed in the summer of 1905. (This is a fragment of the painting.) The painting was exhibited at the 1905 Salon d’ Autumne, where Matisse and other Fauve (savage beast) painters were received with skepticism and disdain.

Treyz, Fritz-Coming Storm

Treyz, Fritz-Coming Storm

The “Coming Storm” with its billowing clouds and etheric light caused by the approaching squall was a popular artist theme in the 19th Century. The luminousness of the clouds and the crashing waves may indicate that a storm system (low pressure) may be moving to the east. Coming Storm Oil on canvas 11 x 14 $575 Fritz Treyz

We went on a vacation on the west coast a few years ago. This little cove was surrounded by beautiful rock cliffs. We had this little section of beach all to ourselves, and spent a happy time watching the waves crash to the shore. The Cove Oil 16 x 19 $300 Kim Richards

Remington, Justine-Egret-Mirror-II-3316

One of my favorite things about visiting the Outer Banks is the wildlife. I enjoy watching the birds, crabs, dolphins and horses.

Myles, Steve-Morning in Acadia

Myles, Steve-Morning in Acadia

My current journey is to find a balance between detailed realism and bold impressionism. I don’t want my work to look like a photograph, nor do I want it to look like something I might have done in the third grade. To accurately render an object with an optimum number of brush strokes is my goal in landscape, still life and portraiture. Morning in Acadia Oil on canvas 20 x 24 $380 Steve Myles

Mulvena, Danny-The Epiphany

Mulvena, Danny-The Epiphany

At some time in the past or future, a group of cattle breaks out of their pasture and wanders down to the seaside. They’re hungry after the long walk for lack of grass they try munching on the seaweed that they find washed up on the beach - they find it delicious. Much better than grass and easier to chew!

Lillis, Judith-Portland Head Light

It was raining when we arrived in Portland, Maine and I was disappointed at the aspect of getting a good photo of Portland Head Light. Not to be deterred, we drove down the winding road to the light. The mist had enshrouded the light in a veil of fog, giving it a ghostly quality. The waves were pounding the rocks below, and the rain was reduced to a mist, perfect to capture the moment.

Jenkins, Doris_TheCliffsOfMaui_Oli

This painting is done from a photograph I took off the rugged Maui coast. I tried to accentuate the stark contrast in the dark cliffs and the white foamy ocean washing in. The many changing colors of the gorgeous shore were so much fun to paint. Cliffs of Maui Oil on canvas 18.5 x 23 $400 Doris Jenkins

I also love to draw, & I feel that this has helped me tremendously with my ability to capture the “likeness” as well as the gesture of my subjects.

We often dine on the creatures from our waters without thinking of their harvest. When I saw this beautiful crab caught in a net, I was taken by its gorgeous colors & the wonderful variety of textures, from the crab’s shell to the braided netting. I thought about the struggle that must have occurred when caught in the net. Callinectes sapidus, the Atlantic/Chesapeake Blue Crab, has been declining in numbers due to overfishing and pollution.

This old fishing dory seen in a harbor during a trip to Nova Scotia was obviously well used and well loved. I imagined the stories it could tell of its times on the water. My challenge was to show the rough, worn texture of this old boat and its contents. The blue boat and blue water required 14 different hues of blue colored pencil which I layered onto Pastelbord.
