Tree Lines 8x10 acrylic on canvas

When looking at landscapes, it's necessary to break it down to its largest shapes!  And then deciding when the painting is finished!

North of Town. 8x10 acrylic on canvas


North of town, many roads crisscross through country that holds many fresh views at every turn.  I am drawn to this area again and again to find subject matter.  I am never disappointed.

August Day 11x14 acrylic on canvas

I have painted many paintings since my last post.  Over the next few weeks, I will be posting  my favorite paintings.  These are smaller paintings.  Many of these I plan to paint again in a larger size.  Painting is a constant search.  As artists, we are always seeking to grow.  This means exploration and continually weeding out what we do not like.  In other words, we always are discovering ourselves over and over again.
