Welcome to my art blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. Although I spent my early childhood in the Catskill Mountains or New York, I now live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies. My goal is to see and respond to the beauty that I find around me with a paint brush, paint and canvas.
This was a painting that I worked on with a class. Each of us kind of created our own little scene using a few photos of skies and hay bales. This particular scene was created with a specific time and place in mind. A favorite walking spot just about a mile from my house on the back 40 of the Gilcrease Museum. I really liked the way it turned out. I quickly took the photo and then realized that I was taking it at the same time of day when the sun is so low and beautiful in the sky. It was perfect lighting except for the shadow cast by the frame on the bottom edge :-) Clicking below will take you to this painting on ebay and give you access to my other paintings in my ebay Gallery.
