Put Out to Pasture - Truck #1

"Put Out to Pasture"
Truck #1
5 x 7 Oil on Canvas board

I love old trucks and have been planning to do these for some time now.
This is a fun exercise for me as I love painting anything that rusts.
If you are interested in this or another of my paintings please email me.  I also do commissions.

Lake Wilhelm

"Lake Wilhelm"
8 x 10 Oil on prepared luan
Goddard State Park near Sandy Lake, PA
Plein air, finished on location.

I am challenging myself to do more paintings outside from real life, and to try to work faster. This one was done early afternoon in about 2 and a half hours. I am posting it as I finished it there. I really enjoyed the peacefulness of this place, even with two young boys fishing, who set up a fuss when their Dad told them it was time to go home. Ah, the summer days are past and its time to return to school.

Thanks for stopping by.

"1/4 Mile"

This was a scene in my early years in the small town we grew up in, of the guys drag-racing their hopped-up old cars.  It was a quarter mile from a certain driveway to the bridge just before the hill. They would then try to skedattle before the town cop came along. I had fun painting this one as my brother took part in many of these races.
