Mule Team

This is one of those nostalgic images that illustrates the way it used to be. Plowing the field using "mule power". It is fun for me to once in awhile reflect on a slower paced life. This is a very small 5x7 inch oil on canvas board.

Wooden Crossing

The lighting was what I wanted to capture here. Warm light in the background illuminating the wooden bridge and lots of cool reflections in the stream below.

Country Road

This image appealed to me because of the big puffy clouds and the simple little farm scene. I can imagine that the little cottage is warm and cosy with the fireplace burning.

Stepping Stones

I am working on a series paintings with a common theme. I call the series Pathways. When I found this photo of these kids walking on a pathway of stepping stones I couldn't wait to put paint to canvas. Now it's back to the drawing board and see what I can come up with next.

I want to do a series of paintings that have pathways as a theme of the image. My last posting was of a pathway into a forest and this pathway is along a seascape. Now, lets see what I can come up with that interests me.

The Trail

I love looking at paintings where I can imagine myself transported into them and enjoying the surroundings. I think this path would be fun to wander down and explore awhile in the woods and beyond.
