Spring Stream, 6"x6", oil on cradled wood panel

While competing in a plein air event, I painted this stream after a nice spring shower had rolled through the area. The sound of peepers could be heard and the smell of fresh rain permeated the air. The painting that I did that day sold, but I decided to do another view of the same stream, looking the other direction.

Barbed Wire, oil on linen panel, 11"x14"

This beauty was spotted on one of my recent travels from an art show. The fence in front really caught my attention. I grew up around barns like this, and as a child I climbed barbed wire fences and ran through pastures in make-believe adventures with my friends. I think I tore a number of jeans on fences like this. In this painting I experimented with a more loose technique-a very fun technique. This is a new direction I'm exploring, combining looser brushwork with occasional palette knife technique. I hope you enjoy!

The Stick Pile, oil on linen panel, 11"x14"

When I saw this barn while traveling in a rural area last week I knew I had to paint it. It was off a small country road right at the bend on the bottom of a small hill. It looked like it had been abandoned a number of years ago, and the fallen branches in front gave further evidence of this. One can only imagine when the last time was it was used, and what it was used for.

Either way it had such a beautiful shape, and the foreground tree added such wonderful interest. It was a gem that I felt very fortunate to stumble upon while traveling.

Paintings Sold!

This last weekend was the NatureWorks Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was an incredible show with beautiful artwork, great food, and an atmosphere that couldn't be beat. Earlier in the week a friend took me out "on the Osage," a beautiful section of prairie in northeastern Oklahoma. I painted in the back of his pickup truck as bison lumbered by within only a couple yards of us. Later that evening his wife made Indian Tacos for us. It was a wonderful week to say the least. If you missed the NatureWorks Show this year be sure to mark it on your calendar for next year.
