"The Old Dairy Barn"

“The Old Dairy Barn”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

This was painted the day before yesterday. I didn’t like the flat sunless light in which i created it. So I went back today. The sun came out and made all the difference…

"After The Hay"

“After The Hay”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

I painted 2 paintings the evening this field was baled into hay. The first was from about 100 feet away and posted here about 8 paintings ago. In this one the field breathes with its new freshly shorn look and the shadows rake neatly across it…

"Forest Fog"

“Forest Fog”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

At a new location (for me), I followed a path which wandered through a swamp and over a small stream or two. Then this clearing appeared on slightly higher, dryer ground. Emerging from the closeness of the swampy shrubbery walls of the trail to the openness of this space, made me appreciate the larger view this afforded. The tree trunks were like umbrella poles with their developing canopies overhead. A fog lingered at the edge of view, maintaining a surreal quality to the place as a stonewall laced along the back…

"Tea Lane Farm"

“Tea Lane Farm”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I pass this scene in winter many times during the week. The Little Bluestem Grasses in the field turn a golden orange during the cold months. Sun hitting it late in the day gives it an extra boost of color against the bleaker landscape. Today I stopped to finally paint the view and was excited at how easily it all fell into place. But then I had been composing it in my mind each and everytime as I drove by…

"Waiting For Snow"

“Waiting For Snow”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

It took me awhile to pick this view to paint as the light was so flat today. A few minutes into the work and small, slow snowflakes began falling. I moved quickly to finish, but had to call it a day when my palette started to have a snow drift in the corner….

"Snow Clouds"

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

I look forward to visiting this meadow marsh in the fall while the salt hay has its way with orange and gray. The hills roll on into the background, while this field is perfectly flat. Only a moon tide changes it when it becomes submerged a few times each month…

"A Road Less Traveled"

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

It has been deer hunting season. I desperately wanted to paint this scene in the woods, halfway down my friends’ driveway in an active hunting area at dusk. Not a sane choice to make especially with no hunter orange clothing to wear, but… I drove down to the spot. Set up against the front of my van in the middle of the drive. Whistled a happy tune and began to paint until the colors disappeared on my palette and in the woods…

"Bee Quiet"

“Bee Quiet”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

I was wandering around by my friends’ house on Tea Lane in some iffy humid weather. Back in the field near where the wild turkeys nest I discovered the abandoned bee hive. Looking like a bear had helped himself, the top enclosure was balanced on the brink of falling. It was a quiet evening’s work until the turkeys started chiming/clucking in before roosting. Taking off from 25 feet below their favorite pine trees, as a friend said, they sounded like bowling balls attempting liftoff…

"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…

"In The Shadows"

“In The Shadows”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

This was a quick sketch as the sun darted below the tree line, the field filled full of shadow and the cloud cover warmed from the setting sun. At that moment the cattle came up the field in front of me. This gave opportunity…
