Quiet Afternoon

 12"x9" oil on panel

My wife was taking a walk in the Funderburg Conservation Area on a beautiful summer afternoon. She took this picture for me to paint and I loved the wispy clouds and the shimmering grasses on either side of the path.

Sunset on Main


11" x 14" oil on panel

My wife and I snuck away for dinner on a beautiful summer even recently. On the walk back to the car, I was struck by the contrast between the shadows and brilliance of the setting sun. Isn't that like life; equal parts brilliance and shadows?

Dappled Drive

 9" x 12" oil on panel

We were driving to a farm stand last weekend and my wife took the picture from which I painted this. She knew I'd like the pole on the right, the depth and sunlight/shadows on the buildings. And, of course, that dappled sunlight!
