Summer evening in Dodds Hollow, which is in the Klamath Basin in southern Oregon. . . I grew up on a farm here and I think it will always be about my favorite place. In this painting, the hay is cut and ready for my brother to get it baled.

contact River Bend Fine Art Gallery for purchase information

I did a little 8x6 of this subject a couple of years ago and have wanted to go larger with it ever since. I love the solid feel of the two of them together, taking care of each other. The scene is at a rodeo. Maybe you'll recognize the cowgirl in the boots, hat and dress from another painting.

In July I led a painting workshop and this is one of the paintings I did during it. I've had that piece of cloth for three years now and have been intimidated by it, but when I sliced up the watermelon, I just had to put them together! It was a really fun painting to do.

A local restaurant, 900 Wall, is the setting of this painting. I enjoyed painting from the perspective of the loft and I was attracted by the late afternoon light.

"Little Reader"

Linoleum Block Print
$55 includes domestic s/h

I carved and printed this linoleum block print as a gift for the mother of the subject. Like yesterday's post, this is one of those pieces that was just a joy to do! This is a very limited edition of 4 prints plus 1 Artist's Proof. I used Daniel Smith water-base relief printmaking ink on a lightweight Japanese-style archival printmaking paper. The prints were made without a press and the image measures 5 5/8" high by 5 3/8" wide.

"Becky and Ty's First Dance"

Oil on Board

After nearly two months since my last post, it's good to be back to my blog! Even though I haven't been posting, I have been painting alot! This is a recent painting I did as a gift for a niece and her husband who married in July. I can't say how much I enjoyed painting this! I don't think there's anything quite as wonderful as painting someone you love--I swear I was smiling the whole time!
