I just delivered this painting to the nicest new collector today. I love meeting my collectors, it makes what I do even more special. I like to know why a piece speaks to them. These folks own a getaway home in Edisto, SC.  Thank you, Amy!

I didn’t eat the orchids 💜
Happy 76th Birthday dinner to my husband and Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone else!

I'll let this sit for awhile, still more to go on this larger 18"x24" painting of the low country.

I woke up thinking about the low country today. It’s one of my favorite places on earth!  I have a zillion images from our sailing days. If I can’t be there, I’ll bring it to the studio. Today’s effort.

This has been a week for walking down memory lane. I was talking about our trip up the Deleware River in July of 2013 with @ddoylepaints the other day. This is my husband who sailed across the Atlantic onboard the SS United States from Naples to NY when he was 9. 
I love the paint junkie's work and all his posts of the working boats. I miss being on a sailboat so much. Check out his work he is one to follow. #art #delewareriver #ssunitedstates #artistsoninstagram #cruisingsailboat #sailing #beneteau423 #restlessspirit

Just a couple miles from my old house in Florida. These were the most exciting times living there!  Today would have been awesome!  We would’ve been at the Port Canaveral Yacht Club with all our friends though!  Seeing it on TV just wasn’t the same, if you don't feel the ground beneath your feet rumble and the sonic booms stop your heart.....well, it's just not the same!

Packed these up today and shipped then off to a friend in Atlanta. She was on the boat and raised and lowered them, so I want her to have them. When we bought our Bowman 57' sailboat in 1987 in Ft Lauderdale, Florida the plan was to sail her back to Ventura, CA and then on around the world...we didn't get around the world but these flags were there just in case. Always remember to mark UP👍don't want to fly a flag upside down. You can tell by the frayed ends....it's windy out there!

I am going to try documenting the first of each month at 9 AM 
I had planned to do this last year but...#followthesun #followtheseasons #lifeonthe16thtee #raleighartist #northcarolina #beautifulview #facingnortheast
I went off in a whole new direction on this today. Kind of like sailing, something I know a little bit about, the wind can change direction or get gusty or just die. This is a  light wind kind of sea.

TBT this is a sentimental piece my husband keeps in his office. I painted it from a photo taken on our first trip to North Carolina in 1991. We bought an acre of land on the ICW near Beaufort. The plan was to build a retirement home. A year later we changed our minds and sold it, thinking why would we ever want to leave Ventura, CA and move across the country! Wow!!! So here we are, retired in Raleigh...never say never👍 #oilpainting #dlarsonpaints #origionalart #buyart #fineart #ownart #americanwomenartists #womenpaintersofthesoutheast #artcollector #impressionism #representationalart #raleighartist #ncartist #artforinteriors #oilpainting #dlarsonpaints #origionalart #buyart #fineart #ownart #americanwomenartists #womenpaintersofthesoutheast  #impressionism #representationalart #raleighartist #ncartist #artforinteriors #contempoaryart #lowcountry #sailing #lowcountryart
