Small Still Life

This is an oil on gessoed masonite. Small, 5" x 7".
A very quick half-hour painting as a demo in class
to encourage working small as a way of developing
technique and keeping things simple.

Still Life in Black and White Graphite

This is a study for a drawing class done from
life. Simple three objects each with their own
unique texture and value.
Graphite and white on gray Canson paper.

Tulsa From Turkey Mountain

On scene at 8:00 a.m. and painted this one today.
It's an 8 x 10 oil on MDF board. I also managed
to squeak in another small 5 x 7 painting looking 
the other way. It's a distant view of Jones Airport but
it didn't turn out very well, so I won't be posting
that one. I'm not that brave. We all have those
"clunkers" now and then.

Mel's Garage

This used to be a place called Mel's Garage in
Tulsa, Oklahoma but Mel is no longer around and
it's been turned into an artist's studio with three
old VW's parked out front. It's directly across
the street from an art supply store, so there's no
chance of running out of paint on this one. This
was painted on site with gouache. Early in the day
before the heat took over.
