Lunch Hour on the Surf

7x7" oil on board
There is something exciting about seeing a fully loaded van at beach.  It just screams adventure.

Pamlico Sound

8x8" oil on board
We got the chance to do some canoeing on the sound and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.  It is quite a contrast to the often fickle surf. Quite lovely.

Surf Search

8x8" oil on board
The beach next to Hatteras light house is one surfers and fishermen flock to.  I caught a couple on their way out for the afternoon.

Avon Pier

8x8" oil on board
The end of October is a fisherman's frenzy on Hatteras.  This is Avon Pier, which was hit hard by a nor'easter a couple of years ago.  It's not one for the faint of heart.  I hope these fellas (and  mamas) caught dinner at least.

Surfside Birder

7x7" oil on board
I have decided one of my favorite things is watching our little boston terrier-mut run on the beach chasing the seagulls and sandpipers.  This was one from our fall trip to the Outer Banks... go get'em Posey!

3 Beeches

A sketch on canvas of three beeches standing proud! The sketch is complete - next I will apply a neutral color wash and allow to dry (enough) and paint onward.
