Primarily Peppers

It's funny how a snippet of a scene can bring back the memories of a whole day. Fall, food, friends, and family.
This is the second attempt of this composition. The partially completed canvas was leaning on a table leg while the sun shone through the back of the canvas and created beautiful light streams that had to be painted.

Trio Trio

Another scene from the old Texas ranch - the chicken coop, the dairy barn, and the ranch hand's home. The center building was originally a train depot that was moved and repurposed.

The Red Door

This building is part of a ranch in Texas where I got some old barn wood to make a table for my studio. It was a beautiful place and I will be reminded of it every time I see my table.

Sometimes you can't leave well enough alone. I messed with this painting and here is the revision.
I like this better, and it won an award in a show, so at least one other person also likes it.

Change In The Air

A front came in from the north and made a beautiful mark on the sky.


A better name might be Reflection, but this painting is more of an idea of a place. I have simplified the surroundings and let the color be intuitive.
