Indian Coal Carriers

A 16" x 20" oil on canvas painting of Indian women carrying coal from the coal mine.  The colors and composition attracted me to this painting.

Calf Roper Dismount

A large oil on canvas painting of a dismounting calf roper done in an expressionistic style.  I like to paint in a loose style especially when action is depicted.  34"x 44".

Honey Crisp and Spatula

I enjoyed studying the white fabric which looks especially realistic against the dark background.  In person, the fabric looks like it jumps off the canvas.  The apple was fun and painting fruits and vegetables is always a challenge and is satisfying. I think people are drawn to this little painting due to its unusual composition.

Pear and Apple

Small oil on board painting (6"x8") of fruit on handkerchief.  Good practice on handling paint when not painting other subjects!
