Big Cat

Wiskers

After I painted the Rhino as one endangered species, I decided to paint the Tiger, apparently their habitat is in decline.

This is acrylic on canvas 3 x 4 feet, the size and colors make it eye catching. my attempted expressionist style, had a lot of fun painting this without a pallet and mixed my colors on the canvas. I found acrylics dry to fast on a pallet.

Abstract…color, value and balance

AbstractOkay, I already wrote this and it was lost in the great divide called web space.

Most recent finished work is this abstract on canvas 20 x 30 inches.  It is a exercise in color balance (not Fox kind) and value.

One views abstracts by squinting…so they look like shapes one sees in a room after waking from a previous evening indulging in copious amounts of tequila.

Thats no Lady!

Portrait of a lady, depending on ones definition, that’s no lady and that’s not my wife?

Practice makes perfect and in order to improve my portrait work I need to paint more portraits…I prefer only ones which catch a mood and as most of my work I paint for the challenge of it.

Custom Redwood oil

Custom Redwood oil

This is a custom redwood painting selected from one of my photos. There is something very special about Redwood trees, a soft quietness of nature. I grew up around redwoods and worked for a time in their presence, one can only feel honored to have had the opportunity.

Nevada Run

Nevada Run 30x36 acrylic on panel

Nevada Run 30×36 acrylic on panel

After having gone through Nevada, I thought of a stagecoach going along route 66 and decided I would attempt to paint one. The hills are from my minds eye, while I looked at different photos off the web for the coach.

As painting go, it is a large one at 30×36.
