Gilcrease Museum back 40

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.

I love the idea of painting small and getting something finished in just a day.  I also love any excuse to go walking in the woods and especially like it when I can grocery shop in the woods and at check out..... everything is FREE!  One of my favorite Oklahoma treasures that you won't find in the store, are persimmons.  This little painting is actually on my ebay auction this week along with some of it's brother and sister 6x6s.

Dang it... this isn't the one that is on auction but is one that is still available.  If I weren't so lazy I would go get it and take another photo... you can see it on the link to the gallery though.

A little video Turtorial.

I was just revisiting this little tutorial that was posted in 2011 before Youtube let us post longer videos.  So this one is in 2 parts both being around 9 minutes.

If you leave a painting with an artist long enough.....

I really loved this painting when I FIRST finished it and then the intended recipient failed to get married ( it was to be a wedding gift ) so first, out came the dog and then 6 months later had me rework the horizon line.

And the finished one.... or is it?  Once it sells, it is done :-)

Last Beach Painting for the Season.

I have since reworked the figures in this painting a little.  Shaved off some of that awkward shoulder and fixed a little of both faces.  To see the finished version, visit my ebay auction Click Here

First Snow and Girl with a Red Coat

To Bid

The first cold snap of the season has me thinking of snow.  This is on auction this week in my ebay gallery.  One of my favorites.

Utica Square 10/3/15

Art in the Square, rain or shine and it looks more like shine as we get closer to Saturday.  I will be right in front of Starbucks and Pendletons which is a perfect spot considering it should be a bit chilly to start the day.  I just sent 3 paintings to hopefully make it into a show at Cristal Bridges ( and if not at Cave Springs), 3 paintings for the Tulsa Ballet opening season at the Performing Art Center, 2 paintings for the TAC member show for First Fridays and throughout the month showing at the Hardesty Art Center and the rest is all going to Art in the Square tomorrow.  Hope to see some of you Oklahoma folks there.  Should be about 75 artists there if I remember correctly.
