Can You Find the Babes?

There are several female figures lurking in these woods. Perhaps 10.  Can you find them all?

Preparatory Sketch

When I start out on a new painting, I often sketch out what I’d like to do on a small canvas – in this case an 8×8.  It saves me from making a wrong start on a huge canvas, but it’s also fun to see how the colors begin to come together.

This painting may not be Niagara Falls, but you’ll be wondering where the spray is while you enjoy it.

Bring the peace and soothing sounds of a woodland stream home with this new landscape.  Just makes me more relaxed looking it again.

A Tree Falls in the Forest

Did you hear it?  If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound.  Well this one may not be very noisy, but it is colorful.  Enjoy!A Tree Falls in the Forest (36x24)

 

Western Exposure

This painting is part of my newest series on landscapes. Notice how the landscape is treated a bit more abstractly. Fall brings out a more colorful scene.

Tide Pool

While part of my new landscape series, this painting is really a seascape. Tidal pools prevail throughout the coast line. They are captivating to watch as the tide rises and falls.
