Late Spring Snow

    This is an update on a piece I did much earlier.  I was never quite happy with the entire composition so I went in and "fixed" a few things.

Boy with Driving hat


     This young man had this great turn of the century "news boy" look.

Conversations

    Now for something completely different.  While on vacation I happened to catch this couple sitting on this picnic bench.  I thought it interesting their pose and imagined all sorts of conversations they could be having...or not.

A Winter's Tale

     This was done up at the pass with a pretty good storm coming through.  The layers of trees and mountain side are what drew me to this scene.

Snow Fog


     On rare occasions we get warmer air over snow cover that causes snow fog.   This scene was just down the road from my house.  There was some sun showing through from above but still had a lovely soft image.

Dappled Light

     I love dappled light and trying to capture it is a real challenge for me.

Snow Shadows

     We had about 18 lovely inches of snow that dumped on us in about 24 hours.  Making my way to the barn to feed the horse I noticed the wonderful shadow pattern from the log fence and my earlier tracks leading to the barn and wanted to paint that.

Heading for Cover

     This was a scene near my house during a very heavy snowfall, the big flakes kind.  The neighbors horse decided it was time to head for cover, swishing her tail in agitation.

Promise of Rain

     Though I haven't been posting for a while, I actually have been painting.  I have quite a few to post so I will dole them out over the following days.
     This painting is a view from my parents farm.  I was captivated by the beautiful cloud and its size building up behind the grain silo.
