I’ve changed this painting quite a bit from earlier version. I’m exploring abstraction and gesture and figures. This is 36” x 48” oil on canvas.
This piece is oil on wood. I started it a number of months ago and it has gone through many revisions. I’m using abstraction and some figure drawing. The thalo blue and green colors connect it to another figure painting I completed in late spring.
Here is a new abstract piece I’m trying to work out. It’s a more intuitive way of working than when making something with representation.
I am working hard to update my Artfinder site where my work is for sale. Please take a look and inquire or make me an offer! I am busy working on new paintings and drawings. Let me know what you think.

I created this by importing a drawing from my sketchbook into a graphic’s program and then working with layers.

These works are not quite complete but almost where I want them. I am enjoying working with the clouds and the contrasting colors. One is a view of the sunrise from the Chamblee High parking lot and the other is a sunset from the studio. Both are oil on canvas (square).
I am trying to get better at digital art programs. Today I used I-draw which has a lot of capabilities. It took me hours to create something that I probably could do in a painting program very quickly. The advantage of this program is the use of layers. Photoshop and other programs use layers soContinue reading “Digital still life”
I’ve given myself permission to make drawings of whatever and just see what happens. I enjoy drawing the figure from life but don’t often draw without using a model. That’s what I’ve done here.
In 2015 I took a trip to Yellowstone with my family. It was a place I’d always wanted to go but I also wondered if it would live up to my expectations for grandeur and beauty. It did! I started this painting about a year ago but just recently feel that I’ve solved some ofContinue reading “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone”
