Wellington Freeze

9 x 12 inches, pastel.  My third in a series of winter themed paintings.  Using some of what I call "acid green" in the sky really enhances the winter evening stuff!

Fields of Cold

9 x 12 pastel.  Another winter scene.  I sure enjoy painting the unique sunlight that winter offers as well as painting snow with all its reflected colors it shows off.

Winter's Light

9 x 12 inches, pastel.  I sure enjoy painting winter scenes!  The combination of warm light and cold air and low sun angle can create wonderful light effects.  Fun stuff!

Omnipresence Divine

18 x 24, pastel.  Using multiple references is a huge mental challenge and this piece involved 4 different reference photos.  Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, but I never have paintings that I feel are ever totally "perfect."  Hope you all like it!

Chaps Flappin Tango

12 x 24 pastel.  I tend to get a little bored painting the same things....that's why I switch from western theme paintings to landscapes, maybe throw in a still  life or portrait or industrial scene every so often.  I also like to switch up the frame sizes and format.  Painting this piece in a long, vertical format was fun to do.

Lake Marie Thaw

18 x 24 inches, pastel.  Believe it or not, this scene was from late June in the Snowy Range Mtns of southern Wyoming.  It was fun painting the ice and rocks underwater.  I kind of feel sorry for the fish that live here, having to spend so much of their lives living under ice.

High Country Reflections

I am way behind in keeping new work posted here.  I will be adding a new painting about once a week for the next few weeks or longer.

This one here is a pastel, 14 x 18 inches in size.  I was trying to capture the smooth, glass-like look of the lake, while still having pleasing "brushwork"to add interest.  Location is Telephone Lakes in Snowy Range Mtns. of southern Wyoming.
