Milepost 10.X (SOLD)
Another sunny day on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. Jack Kerouac called them "long flyless afternoons with Orange Crush". This house has a nice sculpture of a dolphin over the front entry. I made that mistake of asking Cindy what she though of my new work. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment or I mean critiques. "It needs something". I added the car. pure fantacy. Acrylic on canvas. 20"X16" (SOLD!)

A bright sunny day on the OuterBanks. I decided that the telephone pole alone did not completely divide the painting in half so I added the trashcan. "Just beyond the cottage someone is running slow motion on the beach, golden retriever in tow." Another one of them endless days. Acrylic on Canvas 16"X 20" (SOLD)

Mile Post 8.8
Back to shiney oils. This is adjacent to Gables. Some day's peanuts, some days shells. Laying in color requires a different approach when using oils v acrylic, and within a 6"X8" format the spaces fill up quickly. Some times a bit to quickly. NFS
