Old Sugar Beet Factory

9" x 12" oil on panel
Plein Air

Another one from my trip to California. Nine of us painters at the workshop set up along the Sacramento River and painted the old factory across on the other shore. The sun was rising in our faces behind the factory so it was fun painting the shadow and the sunlight.

Bull Valley #8


Commission, 36"x48" Oil on Stretched Canvas

I've been working on this one for a couple months and just delivered it this week. The family who commissioned me have a great memory with this golf hole: their mom hit a hole-in-one on it on Mother's Day 20 years ago.

Barn Find


9" x 12" Oil on canvas panel

We were driving through the country on our way into suburbia the other day and we came across this old gem. wish I could have pulled over and painted it where it stood.

Around the Bend

 14" x 11" oil on panel

I've been working on this one for a while and I'm calling it done. I took the picture I painted it from on a bright spring morning when the fields were just sprouting.

Red Door Cottage

10" x 8" oil on canvas panel
Plein Air

I've been wrapped up with a couple commissions and was cleaning up and organizing my corner in the basement and came across this plein air piece I did last summer that didn't sit well with me. I made a couple tweaks on the easel and am much happier with it now.

#206 - Spring is in the Square

 16" x 12" Oil on panel

It's been a while since I posted! Been working on this one on and off for a couple weeks and again was looking for the challenge of having a lot of information to simplify.
