My friend from high school asked me to do a painting for her of her favorite place in the world. This is the walkway that leads to her paradise. I used the photograph that she sent to me and one that I took earlier this year at the beach and combined them both for the finish painting.

A strange and stormy day A 20 x 24” oil painting.
Coming out of the grocery store I noticed that a storm was brewing. I knew also that I only had moments to race to my car before I would be driving in the pouring rain. The clouds were too interesting though so I stayed and snapped several photographs before hitting the road. This painting was inspired by those photos. It is for sale for $700. My nickname is Margee and if you put that together with my last name in all lowercase letters you can send me a request through my Gee mail Address. I would say click the contact button but I keep getting a lot of spam through that button.
The little creek on our land is running now and is crystal clear as it usually is. This time of year phlox are growing at the edge of the stream and all along the railroad track… Or what was once a railroad track and is now just a pretty green path through the woods. I have been in the habit of doing little 6 x 8 plain air sketches of all of the seasons of the creeks and the land. This one is actually a little larger and is an 8 x 10 on board

I am excited to be part of a group show opening on first Friday in April at AHHA. I will be showing some of my plain aire paintings of the land and a couple of larger pieces. I am also part of a group show at Liggett studio in Tulsa that will end around the same time this one begins. The show at Liggett studio is “she makes art.”

Every now and then I pull out an old painting that needs some freshening up. I took out a couple of other elements of this painting that were some papers underneath the book and just reworked and left one of the papers I added another layer of paint to the painting with the billowing clouds. I thought the landscape beneath them was a little bit too dull. This painting is all about the clouds above, for sure but I needed a little bit of sprucing up below as well. Both of these paintings are on auction on my eBay gallery but I would welcome any offers through this site.
This is a painting I did after looking for inspiration on the Internet. One of my favorite painters is the American artist, Dan Gearhart‘s. I first saw his work at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa Oklahoma years ago and admired his use of color and his beautiful brushstrokes. Sometimes the best way to learned someone’s technique is to use a painting of theirs and closely observe their techniques. It may not be quite as easy for those who haven’t painted before but this keeps me from having to travel long distances and pay a lot of money for lessons with the masters. What I ended up with is my own version of this painting. Just a note of caution you should not sell these pieces if they are after a living artist andThey should always be marked with the words after, in this case, Dan Gerhertz, and then your own name, or copy of..,,..and then your name
This was a commissioned painting of my friend Larry's home. He asked me to include himself, his dog and if I could squeeze his cat into one of the flower pots he would be happy. This is what I ended up with... thanks to my husband who posed on the front steps for me.
