A Touch of Green on the Arroyo

Oil on canvas, 24"x36"

This is a scene from Big Bend National Park and is a re work of a painting I did a few years ago. The entire fore ground has been modified. I wanted to draw the viewer into the scene through the arroyo then lead the eye back up the mountain.

It is framed and available on my website

Around the Bend

11"x14" Oil on linen panel

I think I found this scene between Kerrville and Bandera, Texas. I painted it with much expression and saturated color. The clouds are a bit blown out in the photo, more color and detail in the actual piece.

On the Wild Side

14"x11" Oil on linen panel,

This scene was painted from photos I took just east of Fredericksburg, Texas. The title, "On the Wild Side" refers to wildflowers on the side of a hill, on the side of the road.

Chisos and Desert

Oil on panel, 6"x8"

These little paintings seem so much easier than the large paintings with a million problems to resolve and decisions to make. Still, they are just as much fun! This scene is of course, from Big Bend National Park.
