At the top of the page are my latest paintings, done from the last few years to present. The paintings get older the farther down the page you go. My subject matter ranges all over the map, as well as the painting style I use for each painting. Some are done alla prima, some are done in several several sessions with layer upon layer of glazes. If you have questions about any painting, please contact me and I will talk about it!
"Still life with Gourds", 16 x 20, oil on canvas. I was trying out some new oil paints, M. Graham which uses walnut oil instead of linseed. I really like the paint. Besides that, this is the first painting I have "wanted" to paint since my father passed away early 2022. I finished this one mid December, so at least I got one in before the end of the year.
"The Gold's of Autumn", 72" x 60", (6'x5'). I placed myself in the image to show scale. You can also see my Covid hair and beard! This was painted from October to late December 2020 as a Christmas Present for my son and his family to go over their fireplace. The only criteria he gave me was "We want fall colors". I think I nailed it! LOL. Reference credit goes to Seaq68 at Pixabay (https://pixabay.com/images/id-2942443)
The Introduction. Oil on canvas 36 x 48 Personal collection. This painting depicts my wife Gail introducing our new Shi'tzu puppy Oreo to our boss cat Doofus. She is telling Doofus that Oreo isn't a "real cookie" so please don't eat him. They finally came to an understanding. Oreo stayed out of Doofus' way and Doofus didn't eat him.
