Dog Portrait-finished

16X20 oil on canvas I finished Mr. Cooper today!  You all have seen him already but I will tell you what I changed today before declaring him finished.  Because at this point, adding more will just be more. Here’s what I did… I added a halo of light on his tail, rump, head and backContinue reading “Dog Portrait-finished”

Dog Portrait

16×20 oil on canvas This is the rest of the dog portrait that I was talking about yesterday when I only showed the very top of castle rock.  I’ve been working away at the doggie and he is getting there.  I still need to put a fringe on his tail and work out a few more thingsContinue reading “Dog Portrait”

Limes Away

12X12 oil on canvas First of all, thank you for the really nice response to my sons work yesterday.  He was happy to read all the nice comments you guys left.  He’s a good kid.  Some things come easy to him and some things he struggles with.  I want to clarify that he takes aContinue reading “Limes Away”

Doggie Portrait WIP

First, thank you for all the kind comments on yesterdays’s post of the kids on the Oregon beach!  All much appreciated. Now, this cute doggie is taking shape.  I’ve only included this close of up of his face because  the person I’m painting it for hasn’t seen any of it and I’d love for herContinue reading “Doggie Portrait WIP”

Katie Peak WIP

This might look familiar!  But it’s a new little 8×10 that I started tonight.  I blocked in the most basic colors and values.  I like the warm start that it’s off to.  The foothill painting I did for the art auction was square and 8×8 and I thought it would look better on a rectangular canvasContinue reading “Katie Peak WIP”

Auction Piece & Marathon Monday!

Done!  Off to be framed today.  I’m so happy with how this little painting came together, it’s simple and sweet, and I hope it will appeal to a parent or two at my daughters school art auction this Saturday.  I’ll let you know how it does! I drove by the peak the other day andContinue reading “Auction Piece & Marathon Monday!”

Spring Boise Foothills WIP

Saturday I started this little guy.  It needs a few more passes at it.  I’m going to work on my patience and spend more than a day on it.  I’m donating this to my daughters school art auction, just as a little silent auction piece.  So I wanted to pick a subject that would appealContinue reading “Spring Boise Foothills WIP”

Boise Sky After Thunderstorm

30X48″ oil on canvas You know what they say about the weather in Idaho? Wait 15 minutes, it will change.  I learned quickly that Idahoans like to say that.  I’ve been living in Idaho since 2003 and I’m on board with that saying now.  When there’s thunder and lightning, it pours rain, hails, and randomlyContinue reading “Boise Sky After Thunderstorm”

Boise Foothills WIP

Today I am showing a work in progress that I started yesterday.  I started two new landscapes.   I have the general idea down on canvas, now I need to let this one dry so I can build on the color.  I really love the freeness of painting the foothills and Idaho sky.  I’m lookingContinue reading “Boise Foothills WIP”
