A show in 2 weeks yields rapid painting.
I need at least 10 more of these. All small on canvas
mounted on board with a raised frame on the back,
these will be ready to hang. No frame needed.

In keeping with a tool phase I am entering.
This c-clamp actually is this red!!

This one is pretty intense with the burnt sienna...


Painting blue jeans is alot of fun...not that anyone cares...but it is very satisfying...especially if you like the color blue.

This is a copy of a painting I found in the VOLGA gallery. I love the painters there and I am learning SO much. They use paint so wonderfully...THIS IS NOT FOR I copied it. I did it just because I loved the painting and wanted to see if I could learn something...and boy did I!!!

After talking with a friend about subject matter...we came to the conclusion..that just like a writer, artists should paint what they know...just as writer's should write about what they know...
These days, all I seem to really know is SNOW. So I'm finding myself intrigued by it and wanting to translate it into shoveling necessary...

Recent painting done during a very deep freeze. I tried to capture the clarity of the air since everything seemed to crystalize the minute the cold touched it...

The way the paint went on in thsi one is the main reason its here...

Not very large (6" x 8")...this oil was wonderful in that the edges worked.
