Streaming Light and Shadow 9" x 7" oil on board

A shallow stream in the park. I liked the reflection of the sky in the shadow as well as the sun light on the banks of the stream. I think I am moving in the right direction again.

Elk River - SOLD

As I drove further down the road, I came to the Elk River. This was where I had wanted to go when I started out early in the morning. The other day I mentioned how I like to take roads I have never been on before...the problem is, I can never remember how to get back to these locations the next time I am out painting. Well, I found the river, not the spot I was aiming for,but a good one none the less. This is the third sketch of the day. I think it worked out a little better than the others. Sometimes you have to be satisfied with the effort if not so much with the results.

Hay Barn 7" x 9" oil on board

I tried to loosen up on this sketch but it didn't really work out too well so...I packed up again and went further down the road.

Morning in Elkton 7" x 9" oil on board

The morning and the painting started out well. As sometimes happens, I began to alter my original intent and second guess my decisions and ended up with a "noodle-y" and over worked mess. It happens...to frequently but I packed up, moved down the road and started another sketch. There is always the chance that the next painting will be my best ever.

2 1/2"x 5". Further below is a photo of the artist and his painting at the Butler Institute of American Art.

Peach Bite 7"x9" oil on board

My lunch time sketch...in fact, its part of my lunch. Hopefully this is a better photograph of the sketch. The focus is better but now there is glare. I was interested in capturing the light that is visible through the peach. I think it kind of works.

Plum Bitten 7"x9" oil on board

Its been awhile! I attended the opening of the 73rd Mid Year Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art. It was great and a complete thrill to see one of my paintings hanging in this beautiful museum. I returned full of energy and motivation to paint but... pressing projects at work and very long hours have slowed me down. I think I have passed the "crunch" time and can now devote some time to my own work. As you can see this plum painting is my attempt to work out some of the rust. It was better to eat than paint but its a start.
