Sun Dog

12x9, oil

A little something different today:  Different paint (Cobra water miscible oil), different limited palette (magenta, cyan, yellow and white), different brushes (synthetic), different support (natural clear-primed linen panel) and a different approach.  Same favorite model though.

Twilight on Osage Creek

12x16, oil

Day is done. The sun is waning, casting its golden glow.  Cattle are heading toward the barn; the birds to roost. The thrum of cicadas provides the musical backdrop to an early fall evening.

Update:  I'm so pleased that this painting won a Merit Award in the 2017 Illinois River Salon under judge Jeff Legg.

Still Life with Pear

What to call this?  I paint light and shadow. Every painting could be called 'light and shadow'. 
Here, this is a pear, a cup, some leaves in light and shadow. The painting says all that I have to say.
