Fall Sunset 05


I'm painting on a linen I've not used for about 8 years..  It's Claessen's 66.  It will take some time to get used to again.

Fall Sunrise 07

Tired of cloudy sunrises and fog.  I went ahead and made up this very colorful sunrise from my imagination and experience.

Big Bend Rain


This is a painting from a recent trip to Big Bend National Park. A 7 hour drive for me from San Antonio, TX.  When I got there the clouds moved in and the rain started. Great time though.

Adventures in plein air.

Unfortunately, this painting excursion didn't pay off.  The sun came up behind the clouds.  At least the ice coffee was good.

Summer Sunset 03

I really like sunsets because you can paint in full light until it gets dark.  With sunrises I'm using small LED lights attached to my easel.

Summer Sunset 01

Arrived just in time to catch a beautiful abstract sunset.  It didn't take me long to finish this because every paintstroke was inspired by the view in front of me. Pure joy in creating this.

Sunrise Study - South Texas 3

Painted from life.  Every morning I have my plein air dog with me.  He likes to get out and sniff around.  He then gets back in the front seat and takes a nap as I paint.

Stayed at home today and painted in the front yard.  I moved out to the country so there are trees all around.

Summer Sunrise 11

I now carry a frame with me when I paint outdoors.  It helps me decide if the painting is finished or not.  It also protects it on the way home.
