My plein air group painted this old house that we found almost in downtown Matthews, NC.  For those of you who live nearby, it is on one side of The Farmer's Market.  I have no idea why it has been saved--maybe someone just liked it.

This photo was made about midway through the painting.  And look!  A surprise!
The house is not blue.

Several years ago I made a painting trip to Jackson Hole and it was a glorious adventure.  While eating dinner one evening, I took this photo of a real cowboy having a drink at the bar.  A few days ago I located the photo and did a studio painting.  Most artists make quite a few changes when painting from a photo.  I left out a figure on the right but may paint him in a future painting.  The background is definately abstracted--it is not as important as the figure but I did try to show there were much happening in the background.

At Water's Edge


I got out my big brush for this one. Painted in my studio from a photo I took in Jackson Hole several years ago. I made an effort to keep it loose and be mindful of brushstrokes and edges.
