Thursday Abstract

I’m not sure why this has not been posted yet, but here it is.  This is one of my favorite of the 8×10 abstracts, titled “Twisting.”  It has a lot of movement through the vertical axis.  The longer you look at this one the more you see.  These small abstracts are also great for a small space to add color and interest.  Hope you enjoy, contact me if interested, and thanks as always.

I have just finished a painting, but that will not be shown until after Christmas (don’t want to spoil the surprise).  And I’ve started on several other pet portraits, but they are in the early stages.  So here’s another fruit still life I finished out after starting as a class demonstration project.  This is only a 5×7 and is quite a nice little piece for a small space.  Enjoy, contact me if interested, and see you Thursday.

For some reason, this piece has been getting a lot of attention at the studio lately.  The Tomato Art Festival is long over, but this one is more subtle than just the tomatoes, and is really striking, especially in person.  I have a feeling this one will sell soon.  I’m also giving it a big discount since the Festival is over.  If interested, just contact me.  Enjoy, have a nice weekend, and thanks.

I’ve gotten in a couple of puppies to work on, but no progress yet.  Still have a couple I can’t show since they are surprise Christmas presents.  So here is a piece I just finished, “The Sounds of Nashville.”  I took the reference photo at a Nashville Sounds game last summer, and thought it would make a nice painting of the new Nashville skyline and the boys of summer.  The photo definitely does not do the painting justice.  Its a 24×30 so a good size.  I have made a really nice frame for it.  Someone is already interested in it. so, just saying.  Enjoy.

Thursday, Again With the Skyscapes

Thursday, Again With the Skyscapes

I’ve been on a roll with the skyscapes lately, so here’s another one.  Again, these photos just don’t do the paintings justice.  This one was painted on a black coated board, so there is a darkness about it, but the color coming through at the bottom really makes it work.  I’ve made a nice frame for it and it has already sold, so there must be something to the technique.  I may have to do that again.  Enjoy, have a good weekend and thanks.

Well, I still have no new pet portraits to work on.  Get those Christmas present requests in!  I did just finish a commissioned landscape for a delightful couple.  She is from India, so we did a painting of the tea fields of India to fit above their fireplace.  The photo really does not do the painting justice.  I’ve included a shot of it as hung in their house.  I do so enjoy helping make visions a reality for people.  Thanks.

Thursday Abstract

As you know, I’ve been doing a number of abstracts this year with the new technique I developed.  A dear friend of mine loves them, but really wanted one with a black background.  This is the result.  The background will appear all black from the photo, but actually is has a number of different darks in it.  The background really does make the colors pop.  He’s already claimed this one, but I can always make another!  Thanks, enjoy and have a great weekend.

Tuesday, But No Pet Portraits

Tuesday, But No Pet Portraits

I’m in a somewhat unusual spot right now.  I don’t have any pet portraits in the pipeline.  (Hint: that means now is a good time to order one for Christmas!)  I do have a couple that I can’t show yet because they are Christmas presents; that often occurs around this time of the year.  So here is a nice “skyscape” I don’t believe I’ve shown before.  This one is “Solitary,” and it is a smaller edition of the very large piece I did a while ago, and which was bought recently.  As I have said, I’m really not that interested in painting the foliage and landscape so much as I want to create a sky that is moody and interesting.  I think this sky fits the bill.  Enjoy, and as always, contact me if interested.  Thanks

Here’s an abstract piece called “Quandary.”  It’s a little different from the others in the new series since almost all the surface has paint on it.  I did a full wash of the illustration board first, then built up the forms.  Some parts of it have a very human form, though deconstructed from the actual.  It’s very striking in real life.  It’s also a 16×20 so a decent size but not overwhelming.  It’s available now for purchase.  Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Here’s a portrait of Lucy, the delicate flower.  This was for my dear friends, Meg and Bret McFadyen.  Lucy was their girl and was a real sweetheart.  This was Bret’s birthday present to Meg.  I was honored to create a portrait of this dear friend.  Thanks.
