"Refuge"

8 x 5"
oil on masonite
sold

I'm joining in on another themed group show - coming up at 16 Patton in October - titled 'Landscapes: Of Hope & Glory'. I may not have done very many landscapes in the past four years of painting, but I am anxious to, and here is my first of several.

I found myself staying tight with the brush strokes - because it is a smaller format and it felt like every little stroke of color or glimmer of light mattered. This peaceful refuge is on the outskirts of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

This is a really stunning painting Karin. Thanks for posting. I'm going to be N Carolina the end of next week and plan to check in at Patten 16 with the hopes of seeing more of your work in person. Carol

This is a beautiful, rich, emotional landscape. As much as I am fascinated by your gallery series, etc., Your landscapes have captured my heart.jb

Wow! You really captured the feeling of hope AND glory in this painting.
It's hard NOT to be tight in such a small format, but the viewer doesn't get that feeling at all.

A lovely piece! The Carolinas are a wonderful place to paint the landscape.
