Lacey Keosauqua Creek no 3

I had a framed watercolor painting from over 3 years ago. On the reverse side of the watercolor I applied pastel ground and created this pastel. If it hasn't sold in 3 years move on.

Winter and Fall

This is from a photo taken after plein air painting. The fleeting moment when the sun is low on the horizon. I don't think I can capture that before it changes.

Again from a photo but not because the light changed but because I am just not tough enough to set up in the cold. Photos do not capture the subtle colors. This was of a stand of evergreen trees in a local park. I may have to go back there and plein air paint.

recent paintings

Commission to go with a previous painting of  another dog. I started with a burnt sienna mixed with liquin and painted into this. This method was how I created the first painting

Fall at Wilson lake this year has not been as colorful. This is an opportunity to play with neutrals
