My Favorite Paintings - SOLD

This past Saturday "Autumn Aspens" sold. This is truly one of the paintings that I will miss so much. It's kind of bitter sweet when selling a loved painting .... happy that someone else loved it enough to purchase it, happy for the sale, sad to see it go.

One of my all time favorites that I sold to a gallery a couple of years ago is "Memories of Autumns Past." I still think about it all the time and have a full-size framed print in my office that is on a wall that I can see from my desk.

Last but not least, I will always miss "Autumn Field." It was sold a few weeks ago. I have always considered it my signature painting.

The Watering Hole - SOLD

16" x 20" on Ampersand Pastelbord, Mount Visions, Paul deMarrias Pastels, and Giraults

Hi Everybody,Last Friday after work I took a different way home and hit the mother-load of landscapes to take pictures of. It was like being in another world. It's beautiful where I live, but just 2 miles from my house there is a place that is even more breathtaking. I took 85 pictures.
I came up on this gorgeous field, and my imagination filled in the rest by putting in the watering hole. So, half came from a photo and half came from imagination.

It's a big one at 16"x20" and will be going down to the Redstreake Gallery next weekend. Mount Visions, some absolutely gorgeous soft buttery Paul deMarrias pastels, and Giraults, on Ampersand Pastelbord. I hope you like it.
