This was painted on site in acrylics on an
8 1/2" x 11" piece of gessoed masonite.
On May 8, I'll again be in the back yard of this
classic building painting for the week in
preparation of a Saturday show at
Philbrook in conjunction with the Oklahoma
Society of Impressionists.

Every now and then, it's good to go back over
what you know and do a little refresher exercise, such
as a study in values. I had an image I wanted to paint
and since there were so many trees and dappled
light, I thought it would be a good image to practice
my sense of values before going on to the color version.
This helps to see where your darks and lights should
be, respectively. This is Woodward Park on a summer
day when visiting with my son and his daughter Claire.
Nice place to go feed the squirrels. Oils on masonite
11" x 14".

This is oil on masonite, 9" x 12".
It's a scene on a sunny day in
Bar Harbor, Maine. I painted this
scene from a photo provided to me
by the person who took it while on
vacation. It's one of the most painted
and photographed areas on the
east coast. I'd love to see this for
myself because painting from life
would be much better than working
from a photo but I have to say
this one was fun.

This is a painting of two horses having a leisure
time just west of Fayetteville, Arkansas last fall.
No human prompting could dissuade them from
the grass directly under them.
It's oil on masonite, 9" x 12" and hopefully
will grace a wall in Austin, Texas soon.

This was painted yesterday in a session
as a demo. Oil on masonite, 9" x 12" on
gessoed masonite. First painting of the
new year! I hope everyone enjoys the best
of everything this coming year and that
everyone can breathe easier and enjoy
life a little more.
