Summer's Field, Three Hearts Farm

Summer's Field, oil on aluminum, 12x16, NFS, landscape
Did this as a wedding present for one of my old students, Summer Wilson. This is the farm where she grew up. Her mother, Meredith, teaches at The Heritage School with me. Meredith teaches are to grades k-6 and I teach 7-12. Meredith is an inspiration to me and even let me use a beautiful studio space above her garage several years ago... Summer married yesterday. Good luck!!

Playing on Aluminum

Citra Farm, 8x12, oil on aluminum, $425, landscape
Using some reference from last year to play on aluminum. I love the way the paint sits up and shines... the colors are so rich and don't absorb into the metal like it does on natural fibers like linen or cotton.

Along Christmas Creek

Along Christmas Creek, 8x12, oil on linen, on hold, landscape
Since our trip to Cumberland earlier this summer, I have decided to do a show of large scale canopies from the barrier island. The show will be later this year and all studies and painting will be on hold until then... unless I can't bankroll the show! These are trees along Christmas Creek near High Point.

Bull by the Horns Studio Sale

Boyd's Online Bull by the Horns Studio Sale

I have been painting voraciously over the last year, and, as a result, paintings have begun to stack up in the studio... and the dining room... and other areas of the house.  It is time to have a studio sale so that I can fund my next big show and free up some space in my studio to tackle new projects!

Pieces range from as small as 5"x7" to as large as 48"x60", so there is something for every wall.

I believe this is some of the best work I've done to date, and I wanted my blog supporters to have their chance at it. The galleries haven't been moving artwork like I need for them to... and who can move my work better than me? So, it's time for me to take the bull by the horns for a little while.

You can visit the online sale at this link directly or by visiting, clicking on works, followed by Bull by the Horns.

You can click on the first thumbnail and then continue to hit the "next" button to view the next piece. If you want to buy, hit the "buy" button and you can pay through PayPal. Prices and sizes are clearly labeled.

Please note that if you are local and would want to come by and pick your piece up, I will refund your shipping costs.

I hope you can find something you cannot live without!
