Chinocoteague calls

Urges that make me want summer and beach lead me to create this marshland landscape. It's funny it began as a cloud scape from Wednesday's cold and beautiful sky. Somehow I decided what it needed was marsh. I think a trip to Chincoteague is in order.
PS This is a small pastel -6"x6" but I think I will dive into a bigger oil based on it.

Great cloudscape!

Ah yes, Chinoteague! My son moved to Oak Hall in June and while I did not have an opportunity then to draw or paint, I knew I would be back (before he moved again) and paint there. Oddly enough, I noticed all the abandonned buildings, falling down sheds and other visually exciting structures there and now someone is burning them all up! I think I better get over there soon!

Thanks Casey!

Hi Cate, Chincoteague is a special place. Be certain to visit your son at Oak Hall and take the bridge across to Chincoteague. Lot's of inspiration!

Stunning, beautiful clouds! I can see where this would make a statement as an oil painting. The previous oil you posted is just gorgeous, Loriann - full of mood and mystery!
