"Sky and Mountains" revised


Oil on panel, 9"x12"
This painting was originally posted 7/24/2010. I have repainted the sky and immediate forground, removing detail.

"Daydream" revised


Oil on panel, 10"x10"
This painting was originally posted 2/05/2009.

"Late Afternoon Marathon"

Oil on panel, 5"x7"
A small painting that I used quite a bit of artistic license with the reference photo. I see I will have to rephotogragh this piece... the color is washed out in this pic.

"Oaks & Cactus" revised

Oil on panel, 9"x12"
This painting was originally posted on April, 14 of 2010. This scene is north of Fredericksburg, Texas just as spring is arriving in the hill country.

"Iron Mountain" (From behind Joe's House) revised


Oil on panel, 8"x10"
This was originally posted Nov. 4th of this year. I am currently revising several old paintings I wasn't happy with... it's either improve them or trash them. I will continue this trend for awhile and also begin new works simultaneously. This particular piece I have toned down quite a bit, pushing the mountain back and softening the foreground as well. The sky is now mostly cloudy as it was in the actual photo.

"Setting Sun" redo


Oil on panel, 8"x10"
Another of those pieces I just wasn't happy with and felt I rushed it along just to get it done. I reworked it with a new vision and now I'm pleased with the results.

"On the Hillside"

Oil on panel, 14"x11"
This painting was inspired by the change of season.

"Evening Calm-The Bend"


Oil on panel, 8"x8"
I almost threw this painting away a couple days ago. But I left it alone then came back to it this morning with a new vision for it. I am glad I did.

"High in the Desert" redo


Oil on panel, 8"x8"
Often times I look back on paintings I've done and wonder... "what the heck?". This was one of those paintings... I also call them my mulligans. A chance to repaint something and put a different twist on it. The idea is to make it better (of course). I like this much better than the effort a couple weeks ago.
