Floral Still Life, "The Beauty of Life" 8x6"

Time for another of my small floral still life paintings.  The title of the painting is a reminder that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

$96 + 10



The flowers loosely represented are hydrangea, goldenrod and Queen Ann's Lace.  To many the goldenrod and Queen Ann's lace are weeds.  To me, they were just the thing to brighten up my little display of hydrangea blossoms.


Here's hoping you have a weekend full of unexpected beauty and joy.

Cuba Libre, Oil Painting of Old Havana by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

Florida has been enriched by the Cuban culture. While researching the history of both, I found a restaurant in Central Florida that has created an Old Havana street scene in the restaurant interior. This inspired the painting! Then I listened to the local Rumba Brothers play the bongos and guitar which inspired the Cuban musicians in the painting. I found out the Royal Cuban palm tree can grow to 100ft! Cuban culture has brought so much to Florida...Cuban food like plantains and black beans and rice, mojitos, great dances like the cha cha and salsa, and emphasis on the importance of family. Here's to Cuba Libre! 20" H x 16" W Price: $600.00

1585 Perfect Day at Jetty Park Plein Air Alla Prima

I had a great time painting with my friends today, it was beautiful out at the Jetty park.  The fisherman was there, he left shortly after I started painting.  I hope I didn't make him nervous!

 He was the last thing to be painted so I had to do him from memory.  I am thinking he wasn't catching much anyhow there was a zillion little fish swimming next to the rocks, huge schools of them.  So whatever he had for bait probably wasn't as nice eating as them.  Every now and then some big fish would chase the little ones and there would be big splashes and commotion.  They were all gone by 12:30, about when I left too.

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite. $250.

Florida Landscape,Coastal Landscape Painting, Flowers,Water "A Royal Reflection" Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Abstract Landscape | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Seeing Better Days by Carol Schiff | 6x8 Oil

This abstract landscape of an isolated structure in blazing sunlight is a memory of the days I lived in Louisiana and Texas.  Often we would find these abandoned structures awaiting a new life.

purchase here
115 + shipping
 But it could also be from the countryside of Arizona or even North Dakota, where the weather is very rugged.  Can you tell I moved a lot in my life?  Yes, I spent years and years following my Air Force husband from location to location.  We are so happy to have spread our roots in Florida and North Carolina.




I have to be in the mood to paint with a palette knife, but when I am.....it is really fun (and in my case messy).  Most of my favorite artwork (by me) has a least, some areas of knife work.  I really love the texture which I feel brings a whole new dimension to the piece.

Thanks so much for viewing my abstract landscape today.  I hope you will pin it!

Florida Coastal Landscape,Seascape Painting,Beach House "House on The Bay" Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Growing up in a small coastal state with a large family was always an adventure. We would take family rides, maybe for an ice cream cone, to pick apples or dig quahogs. Often this brought us to the beautiful coastal waters. I always found myself drawn to this particular spot on the bay and I wondered about the house beyond this magnificent stone arched entrance. Would you wonder?
