Available at M Gallery of Fine Art, Sarasota

I got back to Texas yesterday (missed that record breaking 8" of snow!) and I'm still decompressing from the last two weeks and the two day drive. But, I love long drives -time to think, watch the landscape roll by and conjure up new ideas for paintings. Tomorrow, back to the studio.

Beautiful, Deborah. A lot of this is so pleasing. Composition, depth, atmosphere... It sort of settles my marbles.

Deborah - I love your blog! I have awarded the Sunshine Award to you. Please visit my blog to accept.

These Florida inspired pieces are so beautiful. You've transformed my idea of what the region looks like with such rich color and drama. Those long drives are great for photo ops. I've been caught snapping away while driving...not a great combination!

Erin said...

Wow! The light in this one is so breathtaking!

I put a blog award for you and some other artists on my blog. If you want to accept it just check out my blog: Thanks!

Deborah Paris said...

Thanks Sam!

Hi Erin and Linda. I appreciate your thinking of me for these awards.

I know what you mean Brenda- its hard for me not to pull over every few miles!

Beautiful work! Glad to hear you made it back safely.
I have something for you. Stop by my blog and pick it up! If you are over-awarded and choose not to, I understand. :)

How long 'till you think we'll all have digital camera chips built into our brains so we can take snapshots (or video) of anything we're looking at?
Then download it via a usb port in our skulls (just behind the ear perhaps?), or wirelessly of course.
Then we could gather all the visual scrap we need while taking a nice leisurely drive!
Meridee and I drove through about 7 different weather systems today in under an hour, minus our brain-cam chips of course.

This is a beautiful piece, Deborah. It feels lovely.

Deborah Paris said...

Thanks Dean. I appreciate it.

You are a funny, funny man, Steve!

Thank you Don and thanks for stopping by!

A beautiful composition - I like how the horizontal contrasts with what's going on in the sky where there's a sort of spiral effect which feels very dynamic.

Perfection. That lemon-yellow is amazing.
