Turnip Still Life



There's something about this painting that feels very classical to me. I'm not sure what it is exactly but it is one of those paintings of food that I expect to see on the Cook's Illustrated Magazine cover. It is one of my favorites - the painting, that is.

"Autumn Sun" Sunflower Original Oil Painting



Another one of my sunflowers. These are so much fun to paint. Used a little different color palette this time which gives it more of a fall feeling.

Autumn Trio - still life daily painting



So a pear, persimmon and pomegranite walk into a bar and the pomegranite says to the pear.....
Okay, I really don't know where I was going with that but these guys just look like they arrived somewhere. I'll leave it to you to come up with a story.
I do however,like this study of shapes and color. And it would look wonderful, framed and hanging on your wall!

Safflower Daily Painting still life



Here's another version of a safflower. I really like the color harmony on this one and am pretty pleased with the results.
I went out today with intentions of painting outdoors. After having only two non rainy days this month you have to take advantage. While I did enjoy the day and really did paint, you will never see the results. I wiped it 4 times with nothing to show! It amazes me how I can produce one so effortlessly one day and the next it is like I have never picked up a brush before. I guess that tree was not in the cards! At least not today. What can you do?

Designer Pumpkin



This is one of those white designer pumpkins first introduced by Martha Stewart a few years ago. Okay, I'm just making that up. But the first time I saw one was in her magazine. I do really like these creamy white pumpkins, they appeal to my sense of anything interesting.

Mid October en Plein Air in Bakers Park



I spent the afternoon yesterday with good friend and artist Kristin Grevich painting in Bakers Park in Medina MN. It was the perfect October day. I don't think there's anything better than being outside on those perfect days, connecting with and painting the beauty of nature. This is looking out across a very large marshland just as the sun was getting low and starting to fade. You have to work quickly to paint outdoors anywyas in order to capture the changing light but this meant being even more efficient since it was changing by the minute.

A Bend in the River



Another from my Wyoming trip. For this one we traveled up the canyon several miles to a spot near the bend in the river. This is such an incredibly beautiful area of the country. Everywhere you look there is an incredible view. If you like that sort of thing.

Railroad Worker



This is a second study of the railroad worker I posted a while back. I find the almost abstract and and somewhat graphic quality of the painting appealing with it's strong lines and bold colors. Not my usual style or subject but it was fun to stretch myself in the attempt.

Cash, Ranch Dog in Training



This is one of the dogs at the 7D and I can't remember his name. He was only a year old and definitely had the energy of an adolescent. After some research, we have believe his name is Cash.
