Mirador Farm III

Just re-posted this since I changed it a bit . . . . Studio painting that I have been working on for a while and will be in a show at King Family Vineyards in March and April. You can't see the pond from either roads, so I got permission to go and take photos. Large painting, . . . I only have one wall in my studio that big! 24" x 70" framed $1,800, SOLD

Study of Blue Ridge Parkway, II

Second study I did while the weather was bad and worked from images. It is fun to remember being in a location and then painting what is most in your memory. I often will study a photo, turn it over (not looking again), paint what is most important . . . . 7" x 8" oil on MDF board, framed $95  SOLD

Summer Pond

Happy New Year to everyone! . . . . Well, I have been busy with family and friends since December 18 when my son flew in from California, and just yesterday our other son and girlfriend left. That is 20 days NOT PAINTING, I am now ready to jump in and get started with many projects and plans for this new year. I am still working on my schedule and will up-date that soon.
This is a painting from a study of a pond near by that I did this summer.  8" x 8" oil on canvas, framed $125.
