Apricots 8x10 oil

When I have a student or two who works faster than the rest, I often set up subjects for quick sketches.  These are often my favorite paintings as they are very immediate responses to what is present.  They must be done within one sitting so you often have to throw details out the window and just have fun with it.  This time around I decided to join my quick student and this was the result.

Cool Down

It has been a couple weeks w triple digit temps in Tulsa so I thought it was time to revisit this painting.  My nephew was lucky ( According to him... not to me... as this would be way, way too cold for me.) to visit a glacier in Patagonia a couple of years ago.  He posted this photo which really captured my imagination.  This was really fun to paint.  I like the play between cold and warm.  It kind of looks inviting.  I have it on auction this week on ebay.  If interested in visiting my ebay gallery CLICK HERE

Billowing Clouds on Osage Landscape

A common theme in my work is the amazing skies that show up, unobstructed, in our Oklahoma landscape.  I didn't know that as a child, I must have been a Woody Guthrie fan as barbed wire fences and no trespassing signs meant very little to us kids.  We traipsed over many a farmer's pasture and woods in our day. And now when I see an old oil road heading off into the wilds of Oklahoma, it just beckons me forward.

Here is the line from Oklahoma born, Woody Guthrie ( whose birthday is this week )
 As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

Starting bid is $399 w no reserve.

Rainy Night in Tulsa

This is a painting that I did from a photo of Tulsa at night that I took last year.  The photo was just after a rain and I wanted to make this painting a little later in the evening and a little more rainy.  I just darkened everything a bit and softened some edges w some diagonal brush strokes to indicate both rain and fog.  Hopefully I was able to pull it off.  This one is for sale by auction through my ebay gallery or you may contact me directly for purchase.  Click here to visit my ebay gallery and view the rest of my auction items and full price paintings on Ebay
