Outside Paris

Outside paris, oil on linen, 5x7, available when the larger studio piece is complete
The morning before Thanksgiving I was ROR into the wild while Julie and her mom cooked. I took my thumbbox and went to a spot I have been eyeballing since we came through earlier in the fall. It was a spot I would never paint outside of the car because of a blind hill and flying cars. I sat in the comfort of the car, warm, listening to music and painting. It was very nice, though I missed the cool air and the sounds around me.

This was done from a photo I shot on Julie's mother's land in Tennessee on Kentucky Lake. Beautiful sunset site but I was trapped with only my camera and no thumb box!

Delta Morning

Delta Morning, oil on panel, 6x8, $150, landscape
I really fell in love with the delta the morning we left. It was a bit overcast and the landscape was wet from a morning rain. The colors were incredibly rich and there was an amazing smell of "things growing and decaying" in the air.

In the Moonlight

In the Moonlight, 11x14in, oil on panel, NFS, study, nocturne, landscape
My first plein air nocturne done with Roger and Greg. Millie Gosch and Craig Reynolds were also brave enough to join us. A little blue, but Thats what I picked up... just blue and white. I knew I could only focus on the big shapes. I enjoyed this more than any painting I have done with the sun up. Again, if you are interested in a larger piece based on this, let me know.
