Just a Side-trip....

I had this 8" x 8" stretched canvas that I was wanting to do just a very simple painting on. This summer had been very busy and I wanted to paint something to help me relax. Nothing really noteworthy, but just fun.

  Fields of Daisies

         I love Daisies, so I decided that a field of them, uninterrupted would portray a settling effect for me. It calms me when I look at it....

Wetlands, an Original Oil Painting

On of my favorite places in northwestern Pennsylvania, the wetlands of Erie Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, gives me numerous opportunities to paint. The scenes are delightful in every direction you look! Plenty of wildlife as well as waterfowl and many plant species. I felt as if the pines were whispering that day! This happens to be north of Cochranton on Rt 173.

Sunset Painting and Effects, an Original Oil Painting

I was commissioned to do another painting of "Forgotten Loves", however not really wanting to do an exact rendition I chose to do this one as a sunset. I think I like the results.

American Cafe #2

A commissioned piece with additions and changes from the original.. It was kinda fun painting this again as I had added more background and that beautiful Chevy Bel Air convertible! I can imagine riding in it on a beautiful summer day and feeling the wind in my hair, then stopping for a burger at this American Cafe!
