Winter in the Park

 12" x 12" oil on panel

I was out taking my morning walk and took this picture at one of my favorite places in the park. There's a big stand of pine trees on the left so it smells great, and a bench to sit and look at the pond on the right. I never sit though.

An Old Fashioned Painting


9" x 12" Oil on panel
It is the time of year where an old fashioned cocktail hits the spot in the evening. As I was preparing one recently I took a picture of the ingredients and thought it would make a good painting.

Sometimes the road of life has a few curves that seem hard to navigate. I'm thankful today for the passengers with me and the journey itself.

Leaf Burn

I was driving to the local firewood guy to fill the back of the car and stopped to take a picture. I loved the light through the smoke in the distance.
