I had to paint these cows but oh my, those expressions...
So i did my best and it worked out fairly well, but it
felt like they were judging me. lol.
(The one on the far right is like, "Who are those guys
and why are they in my field...?")
The real color on the painting is more vibrant than
this photo, I love the naturally bright coral color of the
Quince bush, with the dark, almost black branches.
Hope the painting did it some justice. Shown @ the
FlightPath Coffee House on 51st & Duval, 5/30-7/1/'15.
48 x 30" ~ Acrylic on Double Supported Canvas
Property of the Artist
My rendition of Stevie Ray in concert. Painted as an
experiment, as most of my work is, but with a definite
vision of the finished piece. The color here is not 100%
accurate, jeez I need to figure out how to use this
camera! but gives a decent idea of the appearance.
9" x 12", Watercolor
This is a take done from a lesson in a UA grad school drawing course. The focus was on line and form on paper with text integrated - color was permitted which blurred the lines, literally (in a good way) between drawing and painting. Subject inspired by a southern bayou in the late evening light.
5 x 7" Oil on panel Sold
This is the first year I've really noticed these orange
pansies. Germany's regulatory board approved them
to be used for health benefits, and they're edible. I, uh,
haven't tried that - yet. But they do look good enough
7 x 5" Oil on board Sold
I'm using a new kind of board that is a
plywood with foam adhered to it to deter
warping, then a sealer / primer applied,
with several coats of sanded gesso over
the whole thing. I like it because it's very
lightweight, sturdy and almost an inch
thick, fitting well within the frame. It
looks and feels good, we'll see.
Still painting, drawing and taking photos, living in Austin, TX. My most recent paintings have been with oils in studio work and plein aire on location, and with watercolors. I paint landscapes (and skyscapes, waterscapes), still life, and portraiture.
After years of painting with watercolors in the northeast,
the rustic beauty and deep warm colors of the southwest have inspired mears into oil painting after many ye, which has been a challenging but interesting with both it's fluid mixing nature and textural possibilities.
I've been most influenced by Monet, Manet & Emile Gruppe; along with current painters Kathryn Stats, Calvin Liang, Carol Marine and Qiang Huang.
