Rain at Sea

Rain at Sea
Oil on canvas, 20"x 24"

Price On Request

About the painting:  This painting is based on one of our many visits to the Outer Banks of NC with my family.  Standing on that sandy beach, a bank of clouds approached.  The light & sea changed color, and the storm just passed to the south of us, so we didn't have to rush to pack up our blanket & kid's sand toys.  

Foothills has found it's place

I love visiting my paintings in their new homes.

The Bee Hive is Occupied

I was commissioned to paint the front panel of this new beehive for friends. I was thrilled to hear that my friend S. was on her way home with approximately 20,000 bees, all in cardboard boxes on the backseat of her car. I got to hear about how heavy the box was, and how it felt warm to the touch. I couldn't wait to come see the bees in their new home.

I've been told that the bees like having the painting on their hive. It helps them find their way home. They apparently are loving the magnolia blossoms nearby and beat a steady path back and forth all day. I look forward to trying some of their honey.
