Sneak Peek "In Progress"

24"x36" oil on canvas

A couple of sections within a 24"x36" canvas currently in progress. The top image is actually the focal point of the painting and encompasses approximately a 6"x8" area. I used a palette knife on the tree next to the barn. Trying to keep it loose. Any refined detail that far in the distance would be a mistake,  Anything closer would have to have equal or more detail.

Wildflowers south of Johnson City

Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas, 30"x40"

Painted from photos taken this past spring just south of Johnson City, Texas. I kept it pretty loose and impressionistic. I mixed most of my color before painting, mostly in the tertiaries and tried to create a flowing rhythm to the masses of color.

There is a little glare on the upper left side of this photo.

Late Afternoon View of the Del Carmens

Oil on canvas, 24"x48"

I have been wanting to paint this scene for quite some time. I thought a large wide canvas would work nicely, so I used a 24x48.

Fall Color

Oil on linen canvas, 16"x20"

I tried to keep this piece pretty loose. There are some nice impasto strokes of color scattered throughout the piece. I may try a larger version of something like this in the near future.
