This was done from a friends photo. It's a barn in New Zealand. Painting this was like doing a puzzle. Lots of different colors and shapes.
Here's a gouache painting I did in my sketchbook. It's a old gas station in Kensington, MD. Built in 1926. I spoke with a guy name Al who worked there. I asked if I could paint the gas station. He told me to take as long as I need. Really nice guy.
This is from a photo I took in West Va. last winter. Finally got around to painting it. Originally it had a barn in the background, but it wasn't working for me, so I painted over it. I like it better with out the little barn in the distance. Done in oil, 6"x6".
Done with pen and gouache.
Done with a cheap ball point pen.

This one was for a story on marriage and how couples handle the first few years of marriage. What kind of positives and negatives they run into. Always great working with Susan Crocrete.
Here's a new one. 6"x6" Oil painting. For this one, I really tried to look at the shapes abstractly. The main thing was to get the values correct. A lot of fun to do. Look for more soon. Thanks!
Here's some sketches from around my neighborhood.
I thought I would put this up. I think it came out pretty good. It was the first still life I have done in oils in years and really a lot of fun. Look for more fruits and veggies to show up here soon.

Yesterday, I was at the National Gallery here in DC. They have a show of some of the recently acquired paintings from the Corcoran Collection. There was one there that blew me away. A painting by Abbott Henderson Thayer. This is one he painted of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. He did a bunch of paintings of this mountain. Up close it really is a beautiful piece. Very loose, great colors and lots of layering. Kinda reminded me of the artist Douglas Fryer or Michael Workman.
