Getting it done

Since last year I’ve wanted to paint three largish square paintings that will fill one wall of my booth. I’m now 2/3 of the way to my goal. I just finished the second one. I’ve done some small studies of these in the past, but they have a different feel at 32×32 inches. Now I have to decide on the third in the series.


Next up, I have 2 8×8 paintings that are near done and a 16×16 in the works.

Artichoke Gallery

48×36 inches, oil on canvas, “Artichoke Gallery”. I recently finished this baby. It seemed to take forever! This picture prints decently but I’m having problems getting a good image for online. The colors are more vibrant in real life and some of the greens really should have more yellow in them, but I’m done for today. This should give you an idea…

This one will be traveling with me this summer… speaking of traveling, I’m almost done applying for my summer shows. Now it’s wait and see time.

By the way ;)…

This painting has been complete for some time but I finally had it photographed. So here it is “The Asparagus Seller”, 50×30 inches, oil on canvas, coming to an art fair near you :). Otherwise I’ve been working on a new large painting and preparing art fair applications for the 2017 summer season. Busy, busy!

Final week for Art of the Feast

This is the last week for you to check ou the Art of the Feast show in Hood River, OR at the Columbia Arts Center. The show ends Oct 30th.  Here’s another one of my paintings that has been visiting there this month.


FINALLY a new painting

My first painting of 2016 is complete! Red Onions-At the Market, 36×18, oil on gessobord. I felt the need to paint something “not green.” I guess this qualifies ;). I have a couple more waiting that I will work on between art show applications and paperwork.


Some new work and another show!

I finished it right before the Park City show. This week I managed to take it in to be photographed. So here it is. Carrots Too-At the Market, 48×36 inches, oil on canvas.
I will be taking this painting with me to my next show in Bend Oregon, Aug 28th-30th. It will be my third show at Art in the High Desert and I feel honored to be going back. If you’re in the Bend Area, stop by booth #19 and say hi. It is in the park across the river from the Old Mill District shopping center. It’s a beautiful location. Check out the artist gallery to check out all the wonderful artists that will be showing this year.

Dreaming of Summer

The Way Home, 16x16 oil on claybordSpring has come early this year in the Pacific Northwest. That has gotten me thinking of my cottage in Ontario Canada. Of course it’s something like -5 deg F over there so I can’t go, but I can paint it! This is my interpretation of one of the many martin houses that have been erected along the beach. This one borders a cottage path to the beach. Enjoy, and think of summer!
