PENSACOLA BEACH, FLORIDA

This is where I spend my winters now...at least for a year or two more. It is brisk in the winter, but the sun is delightfully warm. The sand is brilliant white and the people are friendly. I enjoy watching the sunsets on the beach, examining wave structure, finding elegant shells and working on art projects...painting, crafting and donating an item or two to the Pensacola Beach Women's Club benefit held in March.

SUNSET ON THE BEACH

oil on canvas board" 8" x 10".........$350

One winter evening in Pensacola FL, we sat on the beach at sunset, dressed in our longjohns, long pants, heavy jackets and headbands! But the air was clean, clear and crisp. It was a special feeling to watch the sun dip behind the clouds. So, when we got up to leave, I thought that taking a photo of the chairs might lead to an interesting painting.

Sunset on the Beach

GREAT EXPECTATIONS!

Oil: 12" x 24"....... $450

There was such a foggy day that we couldn't even see the surf nor the end of the line of beach chairs and umbrellas! Apparently the name of this painting just jumped into my head. Painting fog was a challenge, but I stuck with the challenge.

Great Expectations

SITTING ON THE BEACH
at the Portofino Island Resort

Oil: 12" x 12" ......$250

The beautiful deep blue chairs and umbrellas at the Portofino offer a nice contrast to the brilliant white sand.

WAITING FOR THE BEACH SITTERS

Oil: 12" x 24" ......$450

In winter, they only put out one row of the chairs and umbrellas, but in summer there are at least three rows, each having around 60 chairs! I am fascinated by the color and patterns created by the chairs, the footprints in the sand, etc.

Waiting for the Beach Sitters


MOONLIT WAVES

Oil: 12" x 12"....$250

I love examining the light on the waves in all sorts of weather. This painting came from my memory of moonlight on the waves.

Moonlit Waves

SHELLS IN PENSACOLA SAND

Oil: 11" x 14".....$250

This was painted with the sand embedded in the paint. The original painting has very heavy sand texture in it. I found this to be fun and challenging, as I had never used natural items as a part of the paint.

Shells in Pensacola Sand

PENSACOLA SAND AND SHELLS

Oil: 10" x 10"....$250

This painting also has Pensacola white sand embedded in the paint.

CLUSTERED ON THE BEACH

Oil: 12" x 12".....$250

Another painting with sand embedded

CONCH AT REST

Oil: 12" x 12"......$250

This painting has a traditional smooth background rather than embedded sand.

Conch at Rest

RESTING IN THE SAND

Oil: 12" x 12"......$250

Again, sand is embedded in this painting.

GLISTENING WAVES

Oil: 11" x 14" .....$250

The sun peeking through the clouded sky creates a sharp contrast in the light on the waves.
