This holiday season I intend to work on my People of Commerce series. This is my brother-in-law. He sat for me for about 30 minutes this weekend.

Out Of The Fog 2

I am really enjoying this exploration of a field study. The plein air sketch was completed at Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, California. Fog comforts me; I like its intimacy and mystery.

Where Was I

This is a painting from 1990. I am at my core an abstract painter because I have bad eyes or I see different. The title comes from me looking back at this image and wondering were I was in my life. I know it was when I moved back to Texas from Massachusetts.

Mind Landscape

I used an ACEO trading card image as a jumping off point for this painting. I am really enjoying painting from sketches completed on site. Far better than working from a photo. One plein air painting is worth hundreds of photos.

Train Strangers

I did this painting a few years ago. A collector saw it on my site but wanted it a bit larger. So I revisited this image and enjoyed it. I worked exclusively from the painting as I couldn't find the reference photo.

On The Way Pastel

The first pastel version of this image. The original version was a watercolor trading card image painted while traveling up to Fort Bragg, CA.

Clouds From The Plane

During my many plane rides I have painted cloud formations. I usually use the ACEO trading cards or 5 by 7 Shizen Watercolor Paper. I enlarged this one to an 11 by 14 watercolor painting.
