Afternoon on the River

oil on canvas panel
This was done a month ago in a workshop with artist Frank Serrano, sponsored by the training department at DreamWorks. Though it was pretty late in the season it was still plenty hot -- temperatures in the high 90s. By the time I finished this one I was pretty beat.

Studio Redo

The painting on the top is a plein air painting I did while vacationing in McCall, ID this summer. It has bugged me since I painted it for a lot of reasons. So while in the studio tonight I decided to redo the painting and am pretty happy with the result, especially compared to the stinker from Saturday night. 6x8 Oil on board
Also this is a shot of my studio space in case you were wondering.

Effort vs Result

After not painting for what seems like a very long time I painted late Saturday night (12-1am) and banged out this hideous still life. Why am I posting you may ask is that I had a blast doing it even if the result didn't match my energy level. It got me jump started painting again. Thanks to Kevin who committed me to paint at least once a week again.
