American GI

12 x 16 oil on linen

One I've been playing with the last couple of days.  He has had several transformations as far as color goes.  I don't know why pictures of people smoking interest me?????  I know during WWII the Army gave the GIs free cigarettes when they were in combat.

Through the Woods

12 x 16 oil on panel

Another cover-up - nothing much else to say about this one--still attempting landscapes occasionally.

Last Dance

12 x 16 oil on linen

More dancers....I will probably fiddle with this one some more - not satisfied still.   I didn't want to show facial features initially and think I overdid it so not sure at this point where this one will end.

Dancing the Night Away

18 x 24 oil on canvas panel

Started playing with this today as I painted over another figurative I did a year or so ago.  The background needs some more work and maybe the lady - trying to stay loose so I don't want to work it too much.

12 x 16 oil on stretched canvas

Started this today as a study for a much larger painting, possibly 30 x 40.  I don't usually paint in a large format so I wanted to try it out in a small version initially.  I plan to keep it abstract.
