Cochran's Corner

This painting was commissioned by my mother-in-law for my father-in-law's birthday.  This is the beach house they stay at every summer in the Outer Banks for at least a month for the past 20 years or so!  The house is always filled with family, grandchildren, friends, and neighbors- so many memories! This was a very special gift!

Second Street Sunrise

My husband loves to watch the sunrise every morning when we're on vacation at the beach.  This was a view from a walkway through the dunes.  I decided to paint this for him as a birthday present since it has so much meaning to it.  He loved it!

Memories of St John I & II

My sister-in-law and her husband love going to St. John with a group of their friends.  These paintings were from some photo's they'd taken during their last trip.  She wanted to see the memories everyday!  I would sure love to be there right now...

Commissioned Painting

This was a commissioned piece from a lovely woman who saw some of my work at someone's home.  Her family would vacation at the beach during the summers and this was reminiscent of their time there.

American Gold Finch

This painting was from another photo taken from my front porch.  The cherry tree is a big attraction for the birds because I keep a bird feeder on it!

I can get some of the best pictures of our wildlife just sitting on my porch!  We have chickadee's in abundance, and I must say, they are my favorites!!! Here's one perched in our cherry tree.

One of my best customers commissioned me to paint this as a wedding gift!  It was a photo the couple took while on their honeymoon in Hawaii.  Ahhh, to be there right now....

First Beach Trip

As usual, when we are on vacation in the Outer Banks, NC, we must take lots of photos!!!  Don't know who she was, but she had a really cute pink hat on!  :o)

Duke Gardens Terrace House

It's been a loooooong time....since I posted ANYTHING!  I'm fairly diligent about updating my Facebook page, but not so good here.  I'm contemplating converting to a regular website and will let you know if I do!

So since my last post in October 2014 (yikes!), I've painted a lot!  I'm going to try my best to get everything posted over the next few days.

Last summer we spent a gorgeous day out at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC.  We took a ton of photos, and I decided to paint a few.  This was a building on the historic terrace section.  I loved the big purple pom pom flowers!
