Painting in Alaska

Plein Air in Alaska and Oregon It’s been a whirlwind month for me. Painting in Idaho, plein air in Alaska, Oregon, & CA. I didn’t get lots of painting done the whole time I was gone. I spent time visiting family and friends and taking a workshop. I started my month with driving to Sun […]

Morning Light On the Sevier River Utah

An 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas panel. $800. Framed and free shipping included with the price.  I first painted this scene in 2003. It was sooo captivating. I was driving along the highway and had been painting in the area for a few days. It had been raining off and on, so I spent […]

Rousillon France Door

Beautiful light and brushwork in this week’s auction painting. I used a photo for inspiration, but liberally used my imagination to paint this one.

I actually painted this yesterday, Sunday at my weekly gig, painting at the Royal Palms Resort in Phoenix. The inspiration was an old photo from about 10 years ago. Who knows, there may […]

Canyon Sunset

Another 8″x10″ oil painting on panel. Click HERE to bid on the auction painting I’m sorry I missed an auction last week. I didn’t schedule the post ahead before I came down with the flu. OMG, it was a wicked one, but back on track and back to work. Anyway, this was a painting that evolved […]
