18 x 14 inch oil "Old Barrels"

This one has been sitting on my easel for several weeks so I thought I would post it as it is almost finished. I have to clean up the barrels some as I am not completely happy with them. This is one of those paintings that I could not photograph very well. The colors are much more vivid and true in real life and I am fairly happy with the result.

16 x 20 inch oil "Bowl of Fruit``

SOLD - Sept 18/09
I finially got into the studio to finish this one (the heat not so brutal today). I punched up the highlights a little and finshed off the small orange fruit (yellow plums I think). Anyway here is the finished version ready to be varnished and framed. This painting is for sale. Please contact me for info.

8 x 10 inch oil "Cloud Studies"

These are some quick studies of clouds done on canvas board in oil. I took my camera out a few weeks ago and got some great photos of different clouds. I have in mind to do a large canvas for my new bedroom (under construction). Some more will be following soon.
