Fond Memories, mountain landscape with horses running


"Fond Memories"

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too. It was always a muddy mess right here where the horses crossed it regularly.  I added less mud and more water to clean it up some.  Plus I love all the splash.  I used some photos for the horses, but left a few of them out and changed their colors to symbolize my childhood dreams.  This painting took months to complete, and then I went back and reworked it too.  

ENJOY!

Still Waters, Wood Duck with reflections

"Still Waters"

I was caught up in the movement of the water mostly, and of course the wonderful feel of soft feathers and tiny details.  This is one of the few oil paintings I still have available. 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want (for anything); He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters; He restores my soul. 
Psalms 23:1-2


This painting is one of my early works from when I used to paint in oils.  Severe allergies to the solvents caused me to fall in love with the water clean up of acrylics.  I use the paint in a similar way, only everything moves much faster now. Oils takes 2 weeks to dry, and acrylics dry in 10 or 15 minutes, so corrections and layers of colors are made  quickly, and the final details are much easier to add now because I can rest my hand on the dry painting while I sharpen up areas that need more interest. What used to take months to complete takes a week or two if I stay with it!

Returning Thanks, wildlife art, blue heron

"RETURNING THANKS"

I did around ten of these runny and drippy paintings.  They are done with acrylics on canvas, at a standing easel, so all the paint runs down.  It's a messy and fast application of layers of paint. Then I add the details over that once it is dry, so the contrast of warm and cool colors is played up against the contrasting thin against thick paint.  It has to be sealed with a few coats of clear sealer because the integrity of the paint has been jeopardized.  

Just made this older painting available in prints and cards. You can order what ever size you want.

A Country Mile, landscape with barn and pond


"A Country Mile"
This is a take off from my last post.  It is larger and I made some significant changes. I wanted to add more depth, so I used the path and the barn to create a focal point.

Spring Time, Irises


"Spring Time"

Just touched up this little demo from last spring.  I did a similar painting based on this one, but it is larger.  I added a barn and a path to it and used slightly different colors.  I will post it in a day or so.

This one is not available, but I will try to make it available in prints soon.  I can do something similar for you also.  I price custom paintings by size, change colors or mix and match ideas, and I can work from your images or mine.

Tootsie, horse portrait, equine art


"Tootsie"

This is a portrait of a filly I did for a friend of mine.  Tootsie was a yearling for this pose.  I added a better background and really enjoyed creating the details of fur and hair.  Love her expressive eyes too.

Dolphin Daze, seascape, beach sunrise


"Dolphin Daze"

Just finished this larger composition last week. Have worked on it for over a month. Loved creating all the colors. I especially enjoyed adding the pileus clouds. I have seen them before with rainbow colors looking almost like rings of Saturn, so I added them here for a fantasy effect. I also hid dolphins in the clouds. It is hard to make some of them out on this small screen, but in the prints (and in the original) they show up nicely. 

Enjoy!

Past the Boardwalk, stormy beach scene


"Past the Boardwalk"

Went back and made some corrections on this older painting. The sand had too much texture and too many foot prints, which was more realistic, but less pleasing to the eye.  I simplified it and brought the weeds growing down into the path.  I also worked on the clouds.

Day's End, sunset seascape on a rocky shore

From a painting demonstration. The colors turned out better than I had hoped. (Teaching a lesson often leaves my work in  need of many corrections by the time I am finished helping everyone else.)
