"Old Country Road"

“Old Country Road”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

A quiet evening interlude, out of wind and sun, yet full of fall coloring. I drove past/through it twice before recognizing its potential. With autumn colors at their peak, it was difficult to make a single choice…

"Rains Roads Puddles"

“Rains, Roads, Puddles”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

It was raining all day today. I thought I’d have to do a studio still life. I went in the studio and looked out at the barn and saw all these puddles reflecting sky where once was dry earth.

So I set up by the window and painted…

“Mine Owner’s House”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $500.00 US

This was painted right outside my bedroom at the Terlingua Trading Company, in Terlingua, Texas. The house is in partial disrepair and now, partial rehab and is made out of adobe.

It is a record of the time of day and the exact place where I discovered I had a flat tire. I was very lucky that I carry a mini air compressor and was able to fill it to get me on my way.
