Landscape Painting Original Acrylic Trees in Summer
18x18 on cradled wood
This painting is an adapted view from my back yard,
This painting is painted on cradled wood. These are a real pain in the butt to make, but I really like the feel of painting on wood, plus they look really nice. I cut and sand the wood(Masonite),cut and build a frame from 1 1/2 in wood strips. Then I glue the wood to the frame. Gesso and sand it 3 times, hey I'm ready to paint. It looks like gallery wrap except it's all wood.

Animal Painting Musical Horse,Cow,Sheep,Pig, Rooster, Animals-Country Music
"The Country Band"
Okay, so I probably caught you off guard with this one, it is quite a bit different compared to some of my work. It's a painting I did a few year ago when I was doing a lot of musical themed painting. But it's still a funny painting.

Tree Painting Modern Impressionist landscape in Red
A signed and numbered limited edition print.
I have been selling only original paintings for the past 10 years, but alas the economy has forced me to start making prints again. I have been going at it with a vengence. I have come out with over 30 prints this past year.

Just playing with color on this one. Notice all the horizontal lines in the landscape contrasting the vertical lines of the trees.
