A small study of the road to deer harbor.

Sailboat 12x12

Tis is a classic look for european sailboats. Edgar payne used these classic work boats in many of his works. Still payne is one of my all time favorite artists.

Small Boat

Started doing some boats again. This is a little 5x5 miniature. Love the small quick direct feel of the brush strokes. Its also on masonite which adds to the texture.

Small dusk Vineyard

A small vineyard painting at dusk for a winery show. The colors of the mountains in the background are my favorite parts of this piece.

spring to summer

This is another compositional sketch that I am possibly going big on. It is from eastern Washington in the spring.

rooster mixed media

Rooster sketch on gessoed newsprint on board. this was a classroom demo and is oil paint. Sorry I have not been blogging much. I have had some upheavals in my marriage that have been something I have had to deal with. Still not completely sure what will happen but I am continuing to try to stick close to my foundations of faith and move forward. Those of you who are prayer people I would covet your prayers.
