"Noon Contrast" 8x10
One late morning in March, on my way to get some brunch, I saw the sun brilliantly shining on the neighbor's house and trees: an ivy-covered hackberry tree, and a snowy white Bradford pear tree. Even the leafless, still-dormant shrubs were glowing in the sun. Time to paint! (Well, after eating my pancakes, of course…) This is about 90% plein air, with some touch up afterward. Can you spot the chair?

Sunday, March 4, 2012
We're quickly moving into 2012...it's time to wrap up 2011, and start posting some more recent paintings. All of these were painted from life/on location.
|I'm standing by a sign near the Bear Lake trail, shortly before|
starting my painting. This is why it's a good place for snowshoes!
|"Superbowl Sunday" 9x12|
This is what I did on Superbowl Sunday, two days after the previous painting. You can see how much the water has receded, exposing a smooth, bark-less log.
