During my wintertime burst of micro-paintings, here is one with some purple flowers…. no idea what they are, they just kinda emerged onto the paper… enjoy!

Where ya Been???

That’s a question that I’ve been asking myself lately. I’ve not done much in the “art” field. Been a busy Spring and Summer with other things.

During the wintertime, I was piddling around with watercolor. I did a couple of medium sized pieces and several miniatures. I thought I would share them with my readers…… just not all at once.

Here’s one of the larger ones.

This afternoon I decided to work more on this piece…… still don’t know what to call it. (If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know in a comment!)

As you know, I am not an oil paint fan. But I still do it from time to time. Last year I told my son that I would do a painting for him similar to one he saw in a store.

So, I began with the task of finding a large enough canvas that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Check! Next, I painted the whole thing gray. After that dried I began the process of figuring out how to lay it out and give it some drama and meaning. I looked at a lot of photographs dealing with the theme of the highway leading off into the horizon.( If you get a chance, go check out Tau Zero , this guy is spectacular! )

So far, this is as far as I have gotten…… stay tuned for more!




WooHoo! Now we’re cookin’!

At long last I have completed some projects that I have been working on for an extended period of time…..sometimes things just don’t wanna get done.

Here is a photograph of a piece I call Million Mile Reflections. My subject was a victim of Alzheimer’s. Such a tragedy. Anyway, I was inspired by the look in his eyes, both before and after the ravages of the disease. I’m always amazed by what a person can see in another person’s eyes.

Thank you all again for coming by. Please come again soon to see what else crops up on Quiet Eloquence!



Into The Light

•February 7, 2014 • 1 Comment

This morning I met one of my friends for coffee at a local coffee shop. We both noticed an art piece hanging near our table. Really nice colors. The more we looked and talked about it the more I felt like going home and getting out the brushes.

This piece started out completely different than the end result. Here is a photo of it. I’m calling it “Into The Light”.
