As the title indicates, there’s no place like home. This is a painting looking west from our dock. Summer thunderstorm brewing.


Mallet Bayou – My backyard

Vanishing Point acrylic painting by Brenda Osborne

Vanishing Point”” is a studio version of a plein air piece I did while passing thru St Marks Florida. The levees in the marshes at the wildlife preserve go for miles and offer much wildlife and natural beauty to enjoy. I had a 10 foot gator visit me the day I was there. Yikes! I never saw him until a passerby pointed him out. He had climbed up on the beach behind me.

Apple of My Eye by Brenda Osborne

“Apple of My Eye” is something or someone you cherish. I just love our local waterways and our clouds. This depicts the Choctawhatchee Bay close to LaGrange Bayou. Oh… did you see the apple? It looks like you could pick it right off the canvas and eat it. Yum! Acrylic on cradled board.  12×12 framed Current Location: Emerald Coast Theatre Company, art show during the run of the play “Almost Maine”. Come enjoy… Read More

Chery Dawn

This wonderful fishing boat docks at the mouth of Mallet Bayou in Freeport, Florida. I have sailed past it many times and admired the well kept condition and beautiful color of this boat. A friend saw the painting and told me her name is “Cherry Dawn”.   Current Location: Trinity Massage and Bodyworks

Title: Big Sky

It is a bright summer day and all is well on the bayou. I just love clouds. Here is another painting of my neighbor’s boathouse with some summertime clouds. Available: Trinity Massage and Body Works

Here are the two paintings I completed this weekend for the One Size Fits All show that will be held at the Bayou Arts Center, Santa Rosa Beach, FL.  I still need to mount them on the 10×10 panels that are required for the show. One is of a local saltwater marsh and the other is a boat house on the bayou in my backyard.


When kayaking in the bayous I sometimes feel like I am in a mountain valley. This is due to the tall trees on either side of you and the distant clouds. This is the bayou in the early morning as the sun is hitting the trees and the morning shower is gathering in the distance. Very peaceful. This painting is acrylic on a museum quality hardboard 1.5 inch cradled panel. 12″x16″. Current… Read More


 This was from a photo I took while sailing in Mallet Bayou, Freeport, Florida. Fall was just beginning and the small red tree just stood out among the tall pines. Current Location: Freeport, FL Townhall, Featured Artist of the Month, Freeport Art League
