Sunflowers-still life

Hi, I painted this a while back from a set up, oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. It went through several changes, this started out as a teapot with a lid sitting in front of it. I didn't like the lid, wiped it out and ended up doing away with the spout too. The spout didn't seem to add anything to it.

This Friday night is First Friday at the Middletown Pendleton Art Center, stop by and see us from 5-9 if you are in the area.

Country Life

Hello there, I painted this from a reference photo that I took. This is oil on a 11 x 14 Raymar panel. Actually I started it months ago and it sat in my studio unfinished, I decided to go at it with a palette knife and create some of that texture that I love. I think it's finished now??

Ballerina in Red

Hi there, I painted this last night, oil on a 8 x 10 Raymar panel. I did a lot of it with a palette knife as I wanted it to be very painterly. Haven't signed it yet but I think I am done. The left leg was extended in the photo and was lighter, I hope it feels closer to the viewer.

Enjoy your day, I think Spring is on the way.

Taking A Break

Hello there! I painted this recently from a photo from Wetcanvas, I cropped this little gal out of a photo. Wetcanvas is a nice site for artists. It's free, there are forums to discuss different mediums and subjects, you can post paintings to be critiqued and they have a photo library of uncopyrighted photos you can use to paint from.

This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas and I love that little bit of warm light running up the inside of her arm.

The Opening of Red

Hi there, Tonight was such a fun night. This was a very successful show for Pop Revolution gallery with so many submissions and a wonderful crowd. I submitted two paintings and both were accepted. When I arrived I found out one had sold, woo hoo. The 8 x 10 called "God Loves the Color Red" sold and I received an Honorable Mention on "Date Night" the 11 x 14. The show will hang for a month so there is always a chance that the other one might sell. As an artist you have to try to go with the flow, acceptance, rejection and so on but tonight was a good night and I'll sleep well.

Thanks friends for following my journey, I appreciate all of you.

Blue & White with Oranges

Hi, I painted this on Monday morning, made several adjustments to it when I brought it home and here it is. Finished I think but I may adjust it a bit. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I really do like dramatic still lifes, very dark backgrounds and well lit subjects.

This Saturday is the opening of "Red", I'll be sure to take some photos to post.

A Painting in a Painting....

Hello there, This is oil on a 12 x 12 canvas and will be framed in a black 3" frame. I plan to submit this to a juried show but I just keep busy painting and that may change. I painted this from a set up and if you look closely you can see that I painted the scene inside the little frame and so on and so on. I had fun with it and I hope they like the concept.

Great news, out of 117 submissions to the Red show they accepted only 55 but they took both of mine, the opening will be this Saturday night and I'll take some photos. I am very excited and honored to be accepted.
