Peach Trees in Winter

1998, Oil on Canvas, 54"x 46"
Landscape Series
Private Collection

I'm posting some of my older works for the simple reason that my camera was stolen while on a trip. It was either taken from my hotel room or from my checked bag. So, until my shiny new Canon shows up (and I learn how to use it) I will be posting what I hope is a "best of" series. I am currently working on a series of landscapes which is a return of sorts, to my roots as a painter. I hope you enjoy.

Roots #1

2010-11, Oil on Canvas, 22:x 24"
Landscape Series

I've been painting trees for many years and I have never come across a more interesting collection of such "paintable" trees as there is in City Park in Hagerstown, MD. You may recognize this beech from my previous post In The Shade.

In The Shade

2010, Oil on Canvas, 20"x 24"
Landscape Series

This painting was started last summer in City Park, Hagerstown, MD. I made this as a demonstration piece for my regular Saturday morning landscape class (not to be confused with my irregular Saturday morning class, which meets just outside the public restrooms...regularly). Sorry, couldn't resist.

Pear and Lemon in a Blue Bowl

2011, Oil on Canvas, 6"x 6"

I absolutely love pears. The biggest problem that I have painting them is that by the time I'm finished they are usually past their prime, food wise.

An Elephant, a Gorilla and a Tiger Walk Into a Bar....

2011, Oil on Canvas, 5"x 7"

These three just followed me home from the supermarket. So, I painted them.
Then, I ate them.

Paper Lanterns


2010, Oil on Canvas, 20"x 16"

I haven't posted anything in a while because I've been busy working on a painting that is somewhat large and fairly complicated, so I looked through my archives and found this painting which has actually been hanging in my dining room.

It was painted during an event held last Spring, inside the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. I don't usually like to paint in front of an audience but I have a tough time saying no to anyone at the Museum (Please, don't tell them). I set up my easel and was prepared to work on a still life of objects brought for the occasion. After some searching, I realized that there were no electrical outlets anywhere (I have no idea how they vacuum that gallery). Thinking it unwise to paint from candle light, I started looking around for anything to paint. I looked up and saw this hanging above me.
