Baxter Office Building, Fort Mill, SC (sold)

8x10, oil on canvas panel

I painted this in the charming development called Baxter in Fort Mill, SC.  There are over 2000 houses and condos, along with a main street with stores, restaurants, and offices.  I was painting what I thought was a house, but it was actually an orthodontist office.  One of the doctors walked out and bought my painting to give to the other doctor for Christmas. 

This was one of the Tuesday morning plein air activities I do with about 12 other painters.  We always have lunch afterwards and discuss art and also solve the world's problems.  The restaurant owner is going to give us a showing this spring, so we will go back to Baxter and paint more before than.

My sister and her husband are coming for Christmas and will stay a while after the holiday, so I will not be posting any for about a week and a half.  I have been painting and have much to show.  However, we have rain today and the rest of the week, so I can't take good photos.

Here's wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Broken Windows

8x10. oil on canvas panel

I chanced upon this old building with most of the windows  broken out.  The light was just right, reflecting a nice blue in the remaining windows.  I thought it strange that none of the windows matched.  Perhaps it was a do-it-yourself with whatever windows were available.

My computer in at the manufactor's hospital getting a new motherboard.  I am using an old computer and cannot download photos, so I will not be posting art until my computer's return--probably in 2 weeks. 

My best wishes for happy holidays at your house!
