Seascape Sunrise

Oil on panel, 8"x10"

This is a commissioned piece. I love painting seascapes and sunrises too.... it makes a nice combination. I used  some of my Houston sky photos combined with Galveston ocean pictures to create the scene.

After the Rain

Oil on panel, 8"x16"
I love painting these wide panels. They are perfect for panoramic landscapes.

Morning in the Chisos

Oil on panel, 16"x20"

I repainted sections of this piece several times, most of the time eliminating extraneous details. This is a morning scene from the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park as the sun has crested the mountains and begins to shine through the trees.

Oil on oil primed linen panel, 8"x10"

I will re-photograph this piece, I accidently cut off the bottom of the image and part of my signature. I might add more to the background, I'm not sure yet.

Chief Study #1

Oil on panel, 8"x6"

I am going start doing a lot more portrait work and most likely many indian portraits. This is numero uno. I want to keep them loose and focus on the faces.

Desert Plateau

I have once again revised this painting (top image).... not liking the candy look of the mountains I reduced them a little and made them much more gray, pushing them back into the distance a little more.

Oil on panel, 11"x14"

This scene is from Big Bend National Park. It is a view from the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive on a high plateau. This is the 5th consecutive New Years Day I have completed and posted a painting of Big Bend.
