Louisiana Trip Inspiration

Mudbug Boil




Couldn't wait any longer to use that so inspiring lovely RED that I kept seeing in some of the items in Louisiana depicting crawfish. That spicy, orangy, brownish, but Cad Light red that I love so much and sign my paintings with. Uh!! Just gets to me. I pulled out a couple of canvases last week and worked on one of my favorite subjects--crawfish! This one is texture-y on the shells--building up the red!

Hot Daddies




Another one inspired from my trip--it's entitled "Hot Daddies" and is also a small one. Would make a fantastic Christmas gift!

Tuscan Landscape




Finally, I have finished a piece from my recent travels to Italy. Tonight is my next Paint Night of a Tuscan Landscape at the Ledges in Huntsville, Alabama, and this is what we will be painting.  It will be about Tuscan rooftops in a beautiful landscape.  I am taking this piece with me to have on display to help the students.  The photo that this was painted from was taken from a high perspective in Cortona, Italy right at the wall that surrounds the hill town.  Every view down is sweeping and breathtaking.  I hope you like this piece-full of layered color and rich textures!
