Playful Palm, Tropical Palm Tree on Beach by Judy Batterson

This is the cutest little palm tree on the beach! The fun part is a sky full of the colors of pinks, blue, lavender, and little bits of yellow. This is a tropical scene that is happy. I had fun painting this and love the happy way people respond to it. 8x10" Oil on masonite. Framed original $325 Available at Let Us Frame It, Orlando, FL.

Moon Shadows, Tropical Florida Night with Full Moon Oil Landscape by Judy Batterson

When a full moon is in the night sky , the reflection on the water sparkles like diamonds while the moonlight creates palm shadows. This painting captures the moment of night light tranquility. The whiteness of the moonlight and its highlights contrast against the darkness of the night. The value contrast has high drama and creates a surreal world. The full moon creates patterns of light while it illuminates the clouds, the water and the shoreline. The dark values keep everything still. Framed 16 x 20" Original Oil on canvas $1500 (Giclee available $325) Chosen by Orlando Magazine for "Paint the Town" 8th Annual Exhibition, Chosen for "Simply the Best" book by Timothy's Gallery, Available at Let Us Frame It in Orlando, FL.

Swampy Road, A Florida Oil Landscape of Old Florida by Judy Batterson

Off the beaten paths, sandy roads lead back into hammocks and lagoons. I saw some beautiful untouched areas of coastal Florida by walking down a road on a sunny day until it ended in the water. Palms, pines and mangroves were in abundance. The reflection of the blue sky made the brackish water appear to be a beautiful blue. The palette of cool colors captured the feel of the green flora as well as the blue water and sky. Hammocks reflect different values and colors depending on the sun and the sky. Very refreshing in a back to nature way. 16 x 20" Framed Oil on masonite $1200

Sandpiper Tracks, Beach Sand Dune Ocean Oil Painting by Judy Batterson

A view of the ocean through the dunes showcased the sun lighting up the sky with vivid colors. What caught my eye were the tiny little birdie tracks in the sand. Sandpipers had scurried to the water's edge through the sand. It took many tries to get those little tracks just right, but I think they made the painting more interesting. The detail in this painting shows that the dunes are more than just sand. They can be fascinating and always changing with vegetation and the wind. Original 8 x 10 oil on masonite. (Sold)
