Old Drawing

A study for a painting from the around same time period as the Yellow Sub. Notice the word "warm" in the hole on the left. I used to do detailed drawings like this with notes of color and value for reference. I was vehemently opposed to the idea of using photographs for reference. That changed over time, but I still strongly feel that nothing beats working from life when possible. I'm holding back on current productions right now to give my shoulder a chance to heal. Sigh.

One last detail

I thought this piece was finished until I passed the location on my evening walk and saw the bicycle. It was the perfect completion to the narrative of "High School Parking". Starts with a bike, ends with a car....or in a car perhaps.

From the Vault " Yellow Submarine"

Here's an early acrylic from 1979. This was where I worked in Nags Head, North Carolina after graduating high school. One skill I've kept to this day: Throwing Pizza!

Lenten Rose

Days of rain and drizzle have kept me from getting images of new work. This is still much cooler in tone then the original. 5x7

Stll parking at the high school...

I've been working on this piece and the Grassy Sound painting for the past week now, hoping to wrap them up by then end of the month. This one has really gone through some changes since it's inception. Today I prepped a bunch of 5x7 panels so expect some plein air's very soon

Last Winter

Not the Cold ...Not the bad shoulder, could keep me from doing this one. A friend showed me this shack in the middle of a development last month. On seeing it the first thing I said was that it would have been great to paint it in the snow. Glad I got another chance. 9x12
