Wekiva Moon, Small Night Oil Painting by Judy Batterson Florida Artist

"Wekiva Moon"is a small 8x8 oil on black gallery wrapped canvas. I have several friends who live on large properties along the Wekiva River. When the moon is full, it shines like a spotlight on the land below. No urban lights diffuse it. My challenge was to capture this night scene on black canvas without any black paint!

Reeds and Red Boat, Soft Impressionistic Oil Landscape by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

Central Florida has so many beautiful lakes. This was painted at Lake Jessamine in Orlando. Across from where I set up my easel, was a small cove where a little red rowboat was pulled up into the reeds. The early morning light made soft atmospheric blocks of color. And the lily pads made a peaceful scene. 9x12 original oil.

Safari Sunset, Tropical Sunset of Red and Orange by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

There are certain moments at sunset when the sun appears to be a giant orb dwarfing the landscape. Like the sun overshadowing the surfing safari from "Endless Summer", the warm blazing light takes center stage. Then it drops below the horizon line, leaving a faint warm glow to the sky as it darkens. Original Oil on Canvas: 12" H x 24" W Price: $600.00
