What I Did Last Summer Part 3

Just before I moved, I painted a 6×6” canvas for the BAC Fundraiser.

I went to one last meet up with “The Basement Painters” at the BAC in the newly renovated building. They have a wonderful new workspace with great company.

Here’s where the 6×6 paintings hung. It’s a very successful event.


“What I Did Last Summer” Part 1

This summer I’ve been in transition, moving from South Dakota to the Cincinnati area. I have since completeted the move and I want to recap on my blog what I managed to squeeze in my last summer in South Dakota. This is a painting I did at a Paint Out in Oakwood State Park. Acrylic on a Canvas Panel, 8″x10″.

These are the wonderful people who participated at the Plein Air Outing. I miss you all!

Next “Valley at Enemy Creek” WIP01

I want to do another version of “Valley of Enemy Creek” It was one of my best projects and I want to be able to exhibit the work.

I started again with a study because I might as well make some adjustments to the composition, since it doesn’t need to be exactly as it is in real life.
Mainly I move the tree to the right, and changed the direction of the water in the foreground. The first painting I did is in recent posts.

The study is 9×12″ and the final will probably be 18×24″.

Valley of Enemy Creek (WIP02)


I’ve made progress on the big canvas. 30″x48″ The middle and foreground trees are next.


On the creek there are adjustments to make it more like actual place, but overall I think it’s working.

Rolling Up the Carpet #10 (Makeover)

This painting was satisfactory as it was, but it was needling me, from the wall it was hanging. I had to repaint the sky to give it more punch. I’m glad I did it! 7″x 14″
