What I love about this scene is placing yourself in the picture, taking in all the sounds the view and smells of the ocean air. The beach is so relaxing and something I'm familiar with how about you? Well as we head into fall the chair is empty waiting for us next year. Now its time to look forward to this next season and all the blessing we have .

Inspired by a road that leads to an adventure. We love the hill country probably because nature is not cut out of a mold . There are no two scenes the same. No two hills the same and certainly no two paths the same. God loves to show off and as a artist its always a challenge to capture the beauty of nature.

" Morning Sky" By Artist Doug Carter,on gessoboard 5 X 7.
The sound of the wind and the birds flying above. Couldn't help but notice this sky almost a silvery glow. It was hard to paint because I saw both elements in the color of the sky. It was very calming to paint and capture at the time. Enjoy the view and let the imagination soar thanks for checking it out.

"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.

" Sweet Beach " By Doug Carter Artist,.Do you remember ? Some of the best times where playing and even better playing at the beach. Yes there is always a struggle who gets the new shovel or bucket.In the end all works out and time makes memories. I love to see and smell of the ocean and the fun and excitement it creates.

" Summer Glow " I'm not sure, however I think sky's are my favorite subject. They are never the same not to mention the beautiful colors and variety of shapes and stages. They are always changing and bring me closer to my belief in a true Maker. A beach sunset has two of my choice subjects, warm sky's and cool oceans what I call a fire and ice combinations.
