Juno Road Vista (Plein Air on the Rocker U)

Oil on panel. 12"x12"

I did this piece en plein air on the beautiful Rocker U a while back and didn't quite get it finished. I had smeared paint in the sky, so I need to fix that as well as a few other minor touch. I finally got a round to it, so I am calling it done. I know we all need one of those round_to_its from time to time!

A Road to the Barn

Still in progress but very close to being complete. I have worked all over the canvas, refining and adjusting areas. Obviously I spent considerable time on the hill directly behind the barn as it is a major part of the painting and needed more attention than the initial block in the previous image. Hopefully I can make a few other minor adjustments and move on.

Oil on canvas, 24"x36"

Still in progress, I have work to do all over the canvas but wanted to see it posted. Color of this photo is off quite a bit. This is the painting the sneak peek images a couple posts back are from.

Cactus at Linda's Place

Oil on canvas 16"x20"

I wanted to show the progression of this piece, which was started very quickly and loosely. As the painting progressed, I slowed down quite a bit and became much more deliberate with the brushwork. Bad photos but you get the idea. Painted mostly from a reference photo taken at a friends property in Montell, Texas but improvised quite a bit as well.
