Anthem of Praise! - California Sunburst ~ by Connie Tom Hudson River School Original Oil California Art

Anthem of Praise! - California Sunburst ~ 24"h x 30"w Original Oil Painting by Connie Tom ~ Available for Purchase

This painting is of a glorious sunburst as seen from the shores in California. With the sunburst colors, the uplifting clouds and the wonderful color combinations of the reflections in the water and shore, this scene just resounded to me like a song of praise to God our Creator, which was the inspiration for the title of this work.

"Sunrise for the Soul!" Original Oil Painting by Connie Tom Hudson River School Sunset Landscape

"Sunrise for the Soul!" by Connie Tom Original Oil Painting ~ Sold

This painting is a scene from South Carolina’s Hunting Island State Park which covers 5,000 acres of pristine salt marsh, beach and maritime forest. I loved the contrast of the complementery colors of the deep reds and oranges in the sky against the light greens in the grasses. And of course I always love sunrises and sunsets. To me, they are both sunshine for the soul!

"St. Marks Lighthouse" - Florida by Connie Tom Luminous Landscapes

St. Marks Lighthouse - Florida 24"h x 20"w Oil Painting by Connie Tom Sold

This painting is a scene from the panhandle town of St. Marks in Florida. In the 1820’s, this town was considered a vital port of entry for the planting and growing regions in Florida and Georgia. Today this small community (population 315) is known for bordering St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Pristine coastal marshes, tidal creeks and upland forests give us a look at an unspoiled Florida, where peace and quiet reign. This is a painting of St. Marks Lighthouse, where you can see miles of marsh and sandy beach.

"Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies and thy right hand shall save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me; thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands." ~ Psalm 138:6-8.
