Invito

In the month of February I will be in a group show with many of my sketching buddies. It’s being held at the TVAA gallery, 700 N. Pearl, in Dallas. If you happen to be in the area, I would love to see you at the reception on Feb. 3, 2-4.   All of the […]

Garden Falls

This is another view of the Japanese Maple falls and pond at the arboretum. It would be easy to mistake the bright spring color of the maples for autumn.   Garden Falls – 6×6 inches, acrylic and oil on panel

Enchanted Rock

The title of this painting doesn’t suggest a fantasy landscape. It’s a real place, and Enchanted Rock is its real name. Enchanted Rock – 6×6 inch acrylic and oil on panel.

Garden Spring

This is a little waterfall in the Dallas Arboretum that is surrounded by Japanese maples. I wanted to bring out the vital freshness of the new spring growth in those water plants. They glowed. Garden Spring – 6 x 8 inch acrylic and oil on panel

In the Shade

Another one of the little landscapes. This is another of those “spontaneous” landscapes. I kind of think the spontenaity is in the way the paints arrange themselves, not in me. I can’t help but see things I recognize in the shapes the water and paint make. In the Shade – 6×6 inches, acrylic and oil. $108 […]

Little Landscapes

Lately I have been working on some little landscapes using acrylic and water soluble oils. They really are little – this one is only 5×7 inches. Acrylic is great for establishing a base painting with lots of watery flow. Then a layer of the oil was sloshed on and the painting completed by wiping out, scratching, […]
