Path through the Sea Oats, 16x12, oil on board, by Maryanne Jacobsen

Path through the Sea Oats, 16x12, oil on board

I have been working on two large paintings, which were commissioned for the Ritz Carlton hotel in Naples, Florida, and I needed to take a break from all the concentration that a commissioned piece requires. So this was the result. It's a happy little piece that I did with a palette knife last evening and I just let go with all the color that I recalled from painting the scene en plein air at Siesta Key Beach a while back. In autumn the sea oats turn a beautiful shade of warm magenta and the effect is glorious.

If you are interested in this piece, please send me an email at maryannejacobsen@aol.com, or visit my website at Maryanne Jacobsen Fine Art if you wish to see more of my original oil paintings.
