Latest- on a roll!

Here is the latest- I’m on a roll!  This was taken from the scene of my back yard in northern New Mexico.  There was always something beautiful to gain some inspiration from. 

I’ve not really done a whole lot in oil so the learning experience has been fascinating.  Improvement is sure to come. This project measures 24″ x 30″. 

There’s already a larger project lined up so visit again soon!


Bigger and Different

I have finished and framed the most recent piece. As you can see from the previous post, I didn’t do a whole lot more to it. But I am happy with the minimalistic effect it has on my visual senses.

This painting is in oil, using only three colors. It is a deviation from my normal subject matter and may well be something I will dabble in for a while.  It’s also the largest painting I’ve done to date. It is 48”x30” and in a floater frame.

Hope you enjoy it. Please leave me a comment and thanks for stopping by!



Diamonds in the Sand

Hello from Okie-homa! As you can tell, I ain’t croaked yet and workin’ hard at mastering that Okie language and accent.

I decided to bring out the ol’ paint brushes and take a stab at oil. I had seen a print of what appeared as a grassy beach scene and it was just so serene that I thought I needed to do something similar. It started out that way but then it went off in a tangent.

So, now it is in the stage where I just pick at it for awhile. There’s no telling where it may end up.

Child with Crayons email

Finally completed.

Here is the finished product of this little project. I want to thank this child’s parents for the opportunity to have done this piece. I love it when I find such fascinating subjects! Hopefully, I will find the next one very soon and get it up for you.

Thank you to everyone who continues to visit here!

I’ve been missing in action again? Si’ o no? Si’!   I started this little project some time back but have been, well, missing in action again. As per usual, lousy scan but it gives you an idea of what I’ve been doing.

I’ve also been working on the illustration of a book cover for an author and the illustrations of  another book, a children’s book. All has been on hold due to – well, being missing in action again. Perhaps I’ll get better at sticking around but then again……..

There’s actually something on the easel??? Yeah, I know- sorry. Anyway, I went on this fabulous train ride with friends and the Autumn colors were coming out. This, of course, lent itself to photographs. That started greasing the wheels and the paint brushes came out last night for a little while. (The mountain looked like someone had poured golden paint over it like topping on ice cream.)

Not sure where it will go from here but ………….

Update: Photo 2 shows progress………. hmmmm maybe………..

Still more progress. Sometimes I find it humorous at how these things unfold. Stay tune, see what happens next.
