Forbidden Fruit

This barn is part if a farm here in newnan that is no longer occupied. There are several buildings on the property, but no one is allowed on to paint it... Which is a shame. This was done from a quickly snapped cell phone image from a moving car.

Wartrace Remnants

Wartrace Remnants, 6x12in, oil on aluminum, $250
Playing on aluminum here. Kinda tricky, the effect is interesting, though none of the aluminum come through... it just have a brighter feel even thought I sanded and stained the aluminum so it would take oil better.

Carabelle Morning

Carabelle Morning, oil on museum wrap, 36x48in, $3400
The reference for this piece was taken early in the morning the day of the Great American Paint Out while hunting for subject matter. I decided to stay away from boats since the best plein air boat painters in the business were there. I decided to stick to my thing and i did an alley with a truck at the end. Hodges Soileau actually painted this boat during the paint out and he nailed it.

Inspirations from the Mother Road

My show opened this Sunday... and things went great! The whole experience was mind-numbing and exciting. By the end of the day, 24 pieces were sold and they continue to sell as the week continues. The show will hang until the end of the month.
