Dancing to Restore the Eclipsed Moon – 9″ x 12″ Charcoal on brown construction paper
Strength, Spirituality, and Wisdom- 8″ x 10″ Drawing on parchment paper
Give me the strength to conquer my enemies, the spirituality to reasure me what is right, and the wisdom to know when to use each. A warrior, shaman/medicine man, and a chief are atop their horses overlooking an empty plain, the great emptiness. Perhaps a glimpse into the distant future or a reflection of our past, you decide.
Sunrise on the Windmill – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper
Another in a series of windmill paintings. This one is an early morning sunrise on the farm. The windmill and the water holding tank were done in watercolor pencils. The rest using traditional watercolors. The sky came out very interesting and was fun
On the Farm – 9″ x 12″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper
This composition proved to be very interesting. A windmill the farm in the distance, another windmill, a natural spring, tire tracks cutting through the field, and a barbed wire fence in the foreground. More features than I’m used to, but I had to give this one a try. Challenging myself has proved to be very rewarding with this painting. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did in creating it.
Yosemite Morning Mist – 9″ x 12″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper
The inspiration for this painting was to do a study of fog. This follows Early Morning on the River, and Early Retirement in capturing fog. This time I didn’t isolate myself to a single color, and the fog is still apparent.
Free Ranging Bison – 6″ x 9″ Watercolor on 140lb acid free paper
This is a picture of the South Park area just beyond Wilkerson Pass is one of my favorites. This was an interesting painting to create with the colors working in harmony and punctuated with the bison.
Old Fence Line – 6″ x 9″ Watercolor on 90lb acid free paper
This one went pretty fast as everything just fell into place. Another simple technique to get the grass to look full and rich, and the fence cutting through. I struggled with the colors a bit, but I think it came out well.
Lunch Time – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor on 90lb acid free paper
This painting was an experiment in simplicity, playing with new techniques and concepts on the grass and trees. I really enjoyed seeing this one come to life, and I think it looks really interesting.
