Covered Bridge - Workshop Painting

Workshop painting? Do I still take lessons? You bet I do. Always something new that I didn't catch before, or maybe just a good refresher. So even though I'm traveling and living fulltime in my RV, I still try to catch a class when I can. 
This was a fun exercise, with all the colors of the bushes and trees, the covered bridge and the mountains, and all the while trying to incorporate those colors in each area so all blended well together. I was pleased with the outcome, although if I painted it again there would be a few adjustments I could make.

Wetlands near Texarkana, Texas

On a beautiful sunny day, in an unknown (to me) area, I passed this scene on a frontage road as I headed north on I-30 on my way to pick up a few groceries. It was so striking I took the next exit and turned to double back wanting to get a shot of this gorgeousness! I love wetlands anywhere, and with the puffy white clouds showing reflections in the water, the sun brightening the colored leaves, and the drying grasses, it was a scene I just could not pass up!I took a few pictures and after purchasing my needed items I headed back to get out my paints and see if I could do the scene justice....

Autumn in Mississippi, an Original Oil painting by Rebecca Jennings

"Autumn in Mississippi"
11" x 14"
Oil on prepped stretched canvas

This painting was inspired by a conversation I had with this gentleman while visiting my daughter a few years ago. He, and others, would park alongside the roadway to sell their produce. He had jars of honey, sugar canes, sacks of sweet potatoes and bags of oranges. He was a very kind man and allowed me to take his picture. It has always been a fond memory and I'm glad I finally got around to doing this painting.

Just a Side-trip....

I had this 8" x 8" stretched canvas that I wanted to do just a very simple painting on. This summer had been very busy and I wanted to paint something to help me relax. Nothing really noteworthy, but just fun.

  Fields of Daisies

         I love Daisies, so I decided that a field of them, uninterrupted would portray a settling effect for me. It calms me when I look at it....

Thanks for stopping by....

Wetlands, an Original Oil Painting

On of my favorite places in northwestern Pennsylvania, the wetlands of Erie Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, gives me numerous opportunities to paint. The scenes are delightful in every direction you look! Plenty of wildlife as well as waterfowl and many plant species. I felt as if the pines were whispering that day! This happens to be north of Cochranton on Rt 173.

Sunset Painting and Effects, an Original Oil Painting

I was commissioned to do another painting of "Forgotten Loves", however not really wanting to do an exact rendition I chose to do this one as a sunset. I think I like the results.
