Sunrise Dunes Oil Painting Sunrise Beach Qld Australia

Sand Dunes Beach Painting 10x14" unframed 
Sunrise Beach Queensland  by Chris Hobel
For  Sale

Some images  are definitely more challenging than others, grassy sand dunes are one of them. Hal Barton is a favourite Noosa Artist or should I say ex Noosa artist who managed to capture them beautifully. This painting is a turning point for me as I feel pretty happy with it. It is oil painted on hardwood and reflects my local beach pretty well. Most of my Paintings are available as a print or greeting card on the Fine Art America Site, (click on the link to the right of your screen) If you dont see it there , contact me and I will list it. I have recently upgraded my site so I will be adding lots more over the coming weeks. Ive also added a face book like icon at the top of the page so please please  like me... so I will keep blogging and showing my paintings, No painting today as we managed to get our boat out on the Noosa  river for a few hours this morning and caught a few nice bream for dinner, it is a lovely sunny warm day without a cloud in the sky.....until tomorrow...

new camera at last, iconic Noosa Print on sale

Ive been hanging out for the arrival of my new digi camera canon powershot  sx210 IS. After selling  some more prints on FAA I decided to upgrade my account  so I could list more photos of a higher quality enabling larger prints to be purchased.  The prints I sold were taken  with my sons  better camera so I thought there was a message there.
Im having a  promotional sale until Saturday of this print above called Noosa Fun
Our long hot summer is still in full force and we noosans really look forward to a cool  breeze, I think we will have to wait a little longer.
I have been painting and will be posting more frequently as the weather cools
