Wait

This is a new one, fresh off the easel, so I’m pretty excited about it and think I will do some more pavements. Not sure yet how the titles for these will be themed, but I’m pretty sure the name for this one will stick. Wait – 8×8 inch acrylic on panel $165 plus $10 shipping […]

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 Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

Champagne

This was a warm-up for the plein air session in my last post. The subject was a heuchera that had just come home from the garden center. This variety is called “Champagne”, so I’m going with that for a title. I love the colors in these leaves – they emerge a combination of pale orange […]

Poppies

North Haven Gardens kindly invited me to do some painting at their nursery today. There was a gorgeous abundance of blooms, as you would expect. I thought I’d better hurry up and paint the poppies first, before they are over. I’ll be going back again for more blossoms. Poppies – 6×6 inches, acrylic and gouache on […]

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. Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

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 Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

Snow White

I was honored to be invited to participate in the exhibition “View from the Art Village 50-Year Retrospective” at the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery. The show was curated by Nancy Cohen Israel  and celebrates 50 years of the Braniff Graduate School at the University of Dallas. I received my graduate degrees at UD and am […]

Vacation Home

This is closer to my current usual subject matter: typical suburban landscapes. I noticed this birdhouse with the winter tree branch pattern when walking the dog early one morning. At that time the house was empty. I like my results when I come at shapes kind of sideways, either by removing paint or by negative painting, […]

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, […]
