A GALLERY of OIL PAINTINGS, WATERCOLORS, PASTELS, DRAWINGS, and PHOTOGRAPHS

Tranquility of Winter's Twilight
15 x 22" Watercolor Sold Found this awesome snowscape near my PA hometown. The whole area was mostly closed down for the deep snow. This scene inspired me and in the silence I could really zero in and focus. The painting came quickly with a definite vision in mind.
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.
