Boathouse 2 6"x12" $165.00 SOLD

Just had to do this little boathouse again.  Alot of the boathouses now are constructed with aluminum siding  unlike this old wooden painted boathouse.  I suppose they are more weather resistant with the aluminum siding, but they are certainly less interesting and colorful.

The Boathouse 10"x20" $325.00

I never get tired of these lake scenes.  The light on the water has endless configurations and the reflections add a beautiful echo to any house or boat or tree that is lucky enough to be close to the water.  Oh and did I mention those gorgeous tree covered mountains that turn purple and tourquoise in the distance?

Geranium Under the Light 12"x12" $195.00

Just had to do another geranium painting.  Love the shadows and the glass.  Next I will probably do some more lake paintings--thanks to a lovely boat ride courtesy of our lovely neighbors, Sandra and David--thankyou!!

Guntersville Barge 8"x16" $225

After posting this painting yesterday--I just had to re-send the image.  The first image was way too dark.  I realized that my light for the pic was really bad due to the overcast weather.  I try to photograph in natural light but this was not true to the painting--so overs!

Guntersville Barge 8"x16" $225

This is what the I learned in school to call a "genre" scene.  I think It must mean generic or common but those words have a negative connotation so I would rather say it is an "everyday" scene--something that we see often in our ordinary life.  This barge has been docked at this pier for as long as the locals here can remember.  No one seems to know why, but it has become a local landmark and I love its rusty colors.

Taos Window 14"x18" $325

I like to change up my subject matter alot.  Keeps it interesting.  Career wise, I suppose it would be better to get known for one type of thing, but I would like to avoid that kind of type casting.  I'd rather be the character actor who takes on all kinds of roles!
So after a lake painting, this one is of the famous Taos church in Taos, New Mexico.  I was enthralled with this window and the depth created by seeing the window on the other side of the church as well.  I also just love to paint adobe--it seems to have a life of its own.  Maybe that is because real adobe is just plain mud and straw and is hand applied every few years.
