8x6" acrylic on gessoed panel
Buy on Etsy
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
Buy on Etsy
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.

Oil, 6x6 inches, on 3/4 thick black-gessoed board
This month's Virtual Paintout is Ecuador. This scene was on one of the islands of the Galapagos. Yes, there really are tortoises walking around on the mountain tops!
The board is thick enough to stand up by itself. It's also pre-drilled with a hole in the back to hang on a nail.

oil on panel, 6" x 12" (approximate)
This is one of those paintings that I wasn't sure I would finish. It just never seemed to work right, and I scraped off the canvas and started over a couple times. I'm glad I kept going...
