One Last Swing in the South -

Daily Painting, Landscape, Tire Swing, Tree, Farmhouse, Alabama, Tennessee

12x16" oil on a canvas panel.
This has been one of the most hectic weeks I have ever had!
I have had work each day and freelance each evening and preparing for another move in between. I had a small break on my freelance assignment over the weekend and took a personal break from my packing to paint. This subject seemed to fit my mood perfectly. The nostalgia of an old tire swing and my very last painting in Tennessee/Alabama. I am bound for home in Ohio for awhile and then I am off to..................................................................my next adventure.

Hay 4 Sisyphus -

Daily Painting, Landscape, Hay Barrels, Hill, Tennessee Valley

8 x 10" oil on a canvas panel.
The task of rolling these hay barrels up the hill led me to the title, that and...
...the fact that I have past the 500th post on this blog, which means I have finally completed 500 daily plein air paintings. Not to pat myself on the back too much but, I am extremely proud of this achievement. Along with my plein air painting, I work full time and maintain a freelance illustration/animation business. Although it has often been exhausting, it has been a tremendous learning experience and loads of fun. One thing that I'm sure most of the daily painters have in common is family support. That is certainly the case for me, none of this would or could have happened without the loving support of Kathi and our 3 daughters who inspire everything.
Happy St. Valentines day to my family.

One step out of my door and paint! I was struck by the light on these bushes with their red, yellow and green leaves and the remains of yesterdays snow.

Running Before and After the Fall -

Daily Painting, wooden still life

Almost immediately after I "blocked" this picture in, the cardboard that I had clipped the background paper to...fell over. Everything was scattered, so this wooden man was running before he fell and then again after the fall.

Tree, House -

Daily Painting, Tree, White House, North Alabama

This painting is from Sunday when the weather was stunning, very unlike the gray, windy and wet weather we had today. Painting a white house on a bright sunny day is like skipping the meal and going right for the dessert.
This painting is 8" x 10", oil on a canvas panel.
