Landscapes in Watercolor


These are little 6x6" watercolor landscapes that I've been working on lately.  
I find the small format so inviting for quick studies.

Acrylics on Canvas

Barn Owl

Raven - Distant Storm

Lionel with Prey

These are a few of the acrylic paintings on canvas that I've completed over the last year.  
I enjoy switching from one medium to another on a frequent basis, and have been on a roll lately with acrylics and oils, alternately.   I seem to prefer oils for landscapes and plein air work, but gravitate to acrylics for larger, more illustrative work. 

Fox Paintings


Two Fox paintings, Acryic on canvas.

The top one recalls a chance encounter in the woods.  I was hiking and a fox met me on the trail.  We both sat within a few feet of each other for quite a while, just staring.  It was wonderful to be able to look so closely at the beautiful fox in front of me.  It's eyes were so compelling !  At last, the fox made a little sniffing sound, turned and calmly walked back down the trail.  Apparently we had come to some sort of agreement.   I turned around and returned respectfully back down the trail.  The painting is called Messenger in the Woods.

The second painting was done later.  I just couldn't stop thinking about foxes, so decided to paint another.  I haven't given this one a title yet.
