14" x 11" oil on canvas
Original for sale on Etsy; prints and other uses on Fine Art America.
Wow, it's been a long time since I posted! Almost a year, yikes. I haven't painted in so long that I had no idea what would happen when I picked up a brush this week. So it was a pleasant surprise that this painting turned out so well–I like it, anyway. I worked from a photo I took a year or two ago—House Creek on the grounds of the NCMA park. I've gotten a lot of good paintings from that place.
I painted on a black gessoed canvas, which is always a favorite technique for me. If my goal for a painting is color, somehow that dark ground helps me find it.
Only a couple days until 2018. Wishing you all a joyful, prosperous, and art-filled year.

September's Virtual Paintout was Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. There were lots of beautiful farm scenes, but I liked this barn in particular.

12x16" acrylic on canvas
This month's virtual paintout is the Napa Valley. There are all kinds of wineries, of course, but somehow those landscapes weren't appealing to me. There's something about the regularity of the vines that I don't like.
Found this little spot near the edge of the region, outside Knoxville. I played God quite a bit—moved trees around, put in buildings and a road that weren't actually there.
Another adventure in acrylics. I think it came out okay.
