April's Fall by BJ Wright

8" x 10" original oil painted en plein air alla prima on canvas covered hardboard -
$85 including shipping -
In mid April a hard frost killed much of the trees' new Spring growth. The leaves turned to almost Fall colors. The grass is still early Spring green so the color combinations are at first startling, but quite beautiful. No pigment put to canvas nor image captured on film can portray the beauty of the foothills of North Georgia.

South Carolina Low Country Marsh

'Afternoon on the Marsh' 9x12 pastel
This painting is from a plein air painting trip I took last fall to Hunting Island State Park. This wonderful park is on the South Carolina coast and has wonderful beaches, forests and marshes. For this painting I set my easel up on the boardwalk that leads into the marsh. The afternoon light just intensified the wonderful colors of the marsh grasses. I will be going back to the South Carolina coast to paint at the end of the month and I can't wait!
This painting is available for $125. Please email me at for more information
