I sent out some Christmas cards with this beautiful image on them....The buildings in the distance have such a haunting feeling up againt the snowy ground...also the stormy sky always gets me.... I liked it so much I thought I would try to draw it...so this is what came from that experiment...I enjoyed my time drawing...and that's the reason I do this work...c'est tout... Black China Marker on Bristol paper @16x20"
Here is the first drawing from my mind I have really ever done ...or at least for a long time...like since I was six? Anyway I did bring this stag sculpture to the studio and that is how I got the inspiration... not to mention it was the Christmas season and this is what came to mind....Merry Christmas !!! 24x36" china marker(wax pencil) on paper
And so after I painted the three heifers in the AM... I wandered into the beautiful woods in the PM and could not leave before I had spent some hours with this incredible woodland stream and autumn trees.... I was about to start painting a huge tractor in the shed but realized that I would love it if the farmer backed it out of the shed before I painted it...better composition....but he was nowhere to be found and so the woods called...glad I listened...will have to catch the tractor another fall day....maybe spring watercolor 22x30"
OK so I did paint this a couple of weeks ago before it started to snow....back at the Wilcox's farm, my favorite farm of all.... these girls just look so cute to me and I sort if let myself have fun painting them....of course they stood still for about three seconds....so I really made most of it up!Even the tractor didn't have tires on it... watercolor on 22x30" paper
I painted this study several years ago and then decided it needed something....It was just the road and the snowstorm....so I added the fox....it was pretty tricky to figure out but I like it more now.... The new show at 510 Warren St Gallery opened up last night....seemed to be a hit... oil on canvas 20x24"
