"Cow & Trucks" Is Back Home

…Hanging in the living room over the big TV, where it looks like I am watching an episode of the British series “Time Team”. I am kind of glad this one didn’t sell at my recent one-man show. I think I would miss my cow.

One-Man Show Results

My newest one-man show ran from May 3 to the end of the month at the Larkin Arts Wine-Riner Galleries in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I was just informed by the Gallery owner that eight paintings out of the fifteen exhibited have sold. I am both gratified and humbled. There is nothing like the feeling that comes knowing your work will be hanging in someone’s home because they thought enough of it to buy it. My thanks to Valerie Smith and everyone at the Wine-Riner Galleries!

Next Up

With my one-man-show reception happening this Friday at the Larkin Arts Wine-Riner Galleries in Harrisonburg, VA, I am now thinking about the next oil painting. I think it will be a still-life of my watercolor butcher pan palette and glass water jar on the old wood side table. It is in my studio as I type, which would be very convenient! We’ll see, though. Still considering…

I like this except for the shape of the direct light on the wall.

The National Juried Exhibition in Lynchburg is Next Month

The two oil paintings they selected – “Fog” and “Cow & Trucks” – are framed, wired, and labeled. Next Friday I will be driving them down to the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, about an hour and a half trip. They both will be ‘Not-For-Sale’ because I will have them in my one-man-show at the Wine-Riner Gallery in Harrisonburg in May.

"Approaching Storm", Cont'd:

After a fifth session at the Beverley Street Studio School. I am having fun painting clouds that are variations on pink, yellow, green, and brown.

Never dead white. And, as always, without using black paint at

Cloud Studies

While I work on the “Approaching Storm” painting at the Beverley Street Studio School over the next two weeks, I am starting a series of small (12 x 12”) cloud studies here at home in my studio. Here is the first pass at “Cloud Study #1” begun with what I have already learned doing the larger painting at BSSS.
