New Wildlife Painting

Hello Everyone,

After weeks of working on ideas, sketches and preliminary studies I have finally finished my latest wildlife painting. I saw these two young Mule Deer at the base of the western side of the Grand Teton mountains in Wyoming. While the Tetons separate Wyoming from Idaho, there is a small section on the western side that is technically Wyoming. These deer were not too concerned about my presence, but something else had them concerned.

The cautious and curious expression of the deer was my objective, but the light is just as important. While the computer doesn't do it justice, this painting is filled with beautifully sophisticated tones of green and subtle lavenders with hints of blue and sienna. It has all the strength of realism with the interest of painterly brushwork. I ordered a custom handmade frame from America West Frames especially for this painting.

If you would like to inquire about this piece, contact me at Subscribers to my blog get free shipping. My last painting sold within a week of display at the gallery. Contact me before this one is gone.

What was done in the field and what wasn't?

Hello Everyone,

Some landscape paintings are done en plein air (on location) and some in the comfort of the studio. I know that many collectors, and especially my artist colleagues like to know which paintings were done where. So I created a new webpage on my website called "Field Studies." This page contains many of my recent plein air paintings and field studies that were painted on location. Just click on this link  to see this great new page and click on the images to see a larger version of each painting as well as a description.

Also I will be teaching a landscape painting workshop this August 21-23 at the York Art Association in York, PA which will be titled "Capturing the Landscape Quickly." And that reminds me, I spruced up my Workshop webpage with new images and information. Check it out by clicking here.

Be sure to see my ad in this months Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine talking about History Meets the Arts coming this June at Lord Nelson's Gallery in Gettysburg, PA.

Upcoming Shows and Paintings

Hello Everyone,

Spring is finally on the way and I'm gearing up for History Meets the Arts this coming June 12-14. If you have not been to this show, created by Lord Nelson's Gallery in Gettysburg, PA, you must come and see this incredible event. This year, for the first time the show will be held at the Gettysburg College Ballroom. Over 40 nationally renown artists will be in person with their latest works. Besides commissions, I'm working on some beautiful new western wildlife paintings and landscape paintings that I plan to exhibit at History Meets the Arts. See the link above for more details.

Some of you who follow my summer schedule may have noticed that I'm not in Plein Air Easton this year. This is due to the fact that I was invited to paint in the prestigious Door County Plein Air Festival in Door County, Wisconsin which begins the exact same time Plein Air Easton ends. Easton is an incredible event, but given my inability to bi-locate, and a desire for a change of scenery, I had to pass on Easton this year. I wish the artists and staff at Plein Air Easton the best of luck and cool weather.

Weiler House Fine Art Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas recently placed a couple more of my paintings on exhibition in their beautiful gallery. Both of these are incredible oil paintings (see below) with subtle yet powerful color and tonal shifts, sophisticated paint application and enticing composition; one is a national award winner and the other was very recently completed. Contact Weiler House Fine Art to inquire about either of these beautiful pieces at 817-457-3343.
