" Country Road" SOLD

" Country Road " Doug Carter Artist, 5 x 7 Gessoboard. For me I liked the feeling of this field study because it shows such strong depth. Probably 10's of Acres and a sky to match the beauty of this massive land. As you can see there was a haze that was fun to capture. I was very curious to know where this road went didn't have a chance to find out yet. However one day we will see and there will probably be another painting. I feel this could be a very dramatic larger painting if I could capture the same feeling of the vast fields of land. Hope you enjoy my story and painting as much as I do.

" Water on Fire " SOLD

" Water On Fire" By Artist Doug Carter,.The power of the sun it brings life to everything we know and see because of it. No wounder it has fascinated us since the beginning of time. This shows how light will glow even through a solid tree and all its branches full of leaves. I challenged myself to capture this moment very happy with this attempt. The reflection in the water was just a bonus . Looks like water on fire sounds like a good title.

" Sea Glow " SOLD

" Sea Glow "  As you can see I'm still trying to push the colors and continue playing with a familiar theme of " Fire And Ice " . As you look at this you will see color surrounded by subtle grays in the blues of the sea and the  clouds as they change from pinkish to blue. Their are only a few colors that can be used in these transactions with out creating a mess. Again with the changes of colors with yellows and oranges to pinks same thing occurs. What are your thought any luck with transitions of colors are they still a mystery to you as well. .

" Tribute to Colin Page "

"Shrimp Boat " Recently spent a week in Charleston SC. A place I have lived and loved to be apart of.  There is so much material for a Artist to paint from the sea, charm of the old city and the variety of structures of an era gone by. So as I do so often in any town I looked for Art  Gallery's, I think Charleston had close to 30 listed. I feel in love with many artist works as I visited a few.. One Artist caught my interest that of Colin Page. So here is my try and tribute to one of his pieces. . Love It.

" Holy Cloud " - SOLD

Its all about the sky and most importantly the clouds with the glow. You may have heard me say this before I like to call this effect "Fire and Ice". What an effect and eye catcher I feel this will be. A conversation piece you can talk to your friends about for a all time. Whats the most amazing thing about this is I painted one not so long ago and said as I was driving down the road that scene was a once in a life time event. Just as I got done thinking that, I looked in the side view mirror and captured this scene behind me. Almost the same effect the last cloud painting had except it captured more of a red reflection from the sun. Blew my mind .
