Late Afternoon on the Rez

8 x 10 oil on canvas panel

Another painting of the scene I see everyday by my home.  I love to see it,  especially in the late afternoon, with all the colors of the setting sun glowing through the trees and on the water!

9 1/2 x 10 oil on wood panel - SOLD

Just a little abstract quickie I did today for an art show next week.  I will probably fine tune it a bit but basically I don't want it to be too "real" looking.  2/11/15:  Realized I left off the top of the upright guitar so I had to add that back in.  Amazing what you see once you post your work!!!  The frame shadow is running down the left side since I took photo after it was framed.

Catamaran - Complete

16 x 20 oil on linen

Finished this today!  It's amazing how the overall color changes depending on what time of day you photograph your painting.  I snapped this at around 5:15 p.m. and the tone looks totally different from the block in yesterday around 3 or 4 p.m.

Catamarans - block in

 12 x 16 oil on linen

This is after my initial block in of the catamarans.  I have much more detail to add - like the masts - which are shown reflected in the puddle of water but not in the main part of the painting.   The reflection is actually why I was attracted to this scene.  I think I can hopefully finish in one more session.
