House of Blues (revised)

Oil on panel, 8"x16"

Another piece I felt had potential but It didn't live up to my expectations so I reworked it. Not sure about a few things and who knows, I may rework the rework, I will stew on that for a bit and move on for now.

Sundown in Cypresswood (revised)

Oil on panel, 20"x16"

This painting has evolved and changed dramatically from the original post of it. I have repainted every square inch of this piece feeling like it had opportunity to be something special if I put forth the effort.

I still cant get a good photograph of it but I am much more pleased with it than I was before I reworked it.

A Creek in the Hills (revised)

 Oil on panel, 11"x14

A revised version of this piece. I just added more detail and tightened it up a bit more than the original which was more like an underpainting.

Shallow Creek

Oil on panel, 16"x20"
No doubt I will fiddle with this piece in a couple of areas but it is complete for the most part and I want to move on to some other paintings.

Sun Kissed

Oil on Belgian Linen panel, 9"x12"

(detail of Sun Kissed)

Another scene from the beautiful Rocker U Ranch northwest of Del Rio, Texas. My thanks go out again to the Dougal Cameron family for allowing me to paint and photograph on their property.

Monuments of Time (Revised)

Oil on panel, 16"x20"

This is a revised version of the previously posted painting by the same name. I have totally reworked almost every inch of this piece. I may attempt to get a better photo but wanted to repost it today.
