Barrrel Rider Sketch

I like the energy of this picture.  The horse is trained and obedient while the rider is in control.  This sketch will probably change into a more refined painting later.

36"x24" oil on canvas.

Bear Creek Path in Summer

This is a plein oil painting of the Bear Creek path done in full summer. Just a wonderful place to relax, fish for wild trout and paint.

A revision of a previous version.  I changed the background to simplify the picture.  This is a gift to my son.  22" x 28" oil on canvas.

Little boy enjoying a raspberry ice cream cone last summer in Germany.  I used Maroger as the medium which gives the paint surface lots of texture.  Gift to his mom...hope she likes it!
