Passenger's of the Night - The scale in this painting was one of my priorities in it's planning. A combination of study from nature and my invented desire's allowed me to paint this piece.

Winter - A subtle and limited palette helped me achieve this winter grey.

SOLD - White Rose - This piece was a bigger fight than usual. I almost gave up on it several times. Sometimes the struggle pays off, sometimes it doesn't. I am glad I fought through it in the end.

SOLD - Medicine Bottle - I enjoyed the challenge that the brown glass medicine bottle presented to me in this piece.

Alley Wall - This image did not edit very well. I will try to re shoot it and see if a better result is obtainable.

Overgrown - I was in Crested Butte Colorado where I saw this barn last summer. When you are out looking you say no to most of what you see as a possibility and then finally there is a yes. If you're lucky.

My next class will focus on landscape painting, working both on location and a day in the studio working from one of our location studies.

Lemon, Box, Vase - I thought it was interesting how the addition of another element and a format change creates a whole other possibility than the previous painting.

I just returned from teaching a three day workshop at the Water Street Art Gallery in Sapulpa, OK. We had a good class with a great group of students and worked hard all weekend. I hope that we will have another class there someday and will post it if we do. If you are in the area stop and visit the gallery you will be glad you did.
