Julie and I are moving back to the big city of Newnan and I am cleaning out the closet and the walls! Some of these are old favorites and some are pieces that got lost in the stacks. There are several large pieces, some medium siZed and tons of small plein air and still life pieces.

These pieces are priced to move and I will not mention prices here, you will have to see for yourself. First come, first serve... I have set up a PayPal button for each piece, practically the only way you can be assured to piece is yours... otherwise you will be at the mercy of the email on my laptop and smartphone.

Go to my website and click on the MOVING SALE! page. if you want to email me about making an offer on a piece or other questions, you can do so here.

Hope you find something you like!

Playing Hokey 303

Rarely, but sometimes I will paint during my classes. The kids are always interested and curious about what I do and how I do it. I painted this one from a really bad cell phone image (so I thought you should see it that way, too!) but the kids really enjoyed it!

Newnan Coweta MagaZine

Newnan Coweta MagaZine did this great write up on me for the November/December issue. I have been holding off on the posting as I try to make myself look less creepy and more sober... to no avail. However, let it be known that I have been clean and serene for over 4 years now :)

Wesley Woods Open House

While house hunting, Julie and I found a great farmhouse that we fell in love with... however, it needed time and money... 2 things we do not have. Even though it hurt our hearts to pass on it, we did become friends with the owner, Beth Lever. Her folks had lived in the house and she and her brother were fixing it up to sell it.

Beth is head of marketing at Wesley Woods, a beautiful retirement community here in Newnan. She asked if they could use my work to decorate an independent living cottage for their open house this Sunday and I happily agreed. I have a special place in my heart for people who work with the elderly, having a grandmother who had Alzheimers and one that was incapacitated by a stroke. They do great things at Wesley woods for our seasoned citizens of all ages.

The work is a mix of pieces that I have kept over the years for personal reasons. I have paintings that have been accpted into OPA shows and works from the Southern Living Idea House in the mix as well. If you missed OPA or the Idea House, go to Wesley Woods this Sunday!

SOLD First Light 302

I have been wanting to paint another large landscape after the one I painted for the Southern Living Idea House. I think I have redeemed myself for now...

SOLD Bascom's 301

Did this painting for a patron of mine. They are the proud owners of MANY large Boyd pieces. Her parents met in this store in south Georgia. This will add to the decor in her mothers new condo.

SOLD Neighbors Barn 300

Did this commission for a workmate of mine... I am a sucker for old barns and they know it. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, but I must say I think it turned out well. I am tackling a larger structure this weekend.

Big Egg Little Nest 299

Got this egg from a client when I dropped off a painting. It proved to be the MOST difficult subject ever. After 2 failed attempts and scrape-offs, I decided to put it in a more logical setting. The first 2 made it look like a a pear. I cursed to myself a threw it in a nest and here you go. It is a chicken egg in a barn swallow nest, so don't bother to point that out to me! Just goes to show that the top 3 words in real estate sometimes work with still lifes as well... location, location, location.

Clementines and a Bowl 298

Sorry for my absence. The holiday season puts me on the road a great deal. My wife and I live in middle Georgia and her family is in western Tennessee. So, needless to say painting has been sparse and the paintings I do this time of year are usually Christmas presents and cannot be put on the blog as of yet. We have also been house hunting... we all know how great that is.

Trying to get back into the swing on small daily paintings, but I am beginning to feel like they have run their course... at least for now. I am seriously considering doing a 365 blog of plein air paintings... but we are moving back to the city. May have to be cityscapes!

Anyway, glad to be back!
