On My Easel

In Progress
10 x 10 oil on cradled hardwood

I haven't had much time to paint lately but I wanted to show you what is on my easel right now. I'm really excited about it at this stage. And I'm hoping it will turn out as well as I imagine it. I can't wait to get back to it. I tone my boards pink/orange these days. 

What's on your easel?

Shadow Running

8 x 8 oil on cradled wood

I'm back to running legs! I can't seem to stop with this subject. 

Smooth Paddling

6 x 6 oil on panel

I had started this one about a week ago but didn't have time to finish it. So I made the final tweaks yesterday. I hope you like another kayak painting. I really enjoy trying to simplify the figure and and the water, along with capturing the mood of the place. 

We are headed down to Peoria for the weekend. Celebrating my youngest grandson's 1st birthday! Should be fun!


6 x 6 oil on panel

This is Cloe. Side-kick of Dixie from our time at Lost Land Lake in Wisconsin. Cloe is still a pup, so was a bit unruly at times. But she glowed in the sun and was fun to watch as she chased down chipmunks. 

Today's Big Catch

6 x 6 oil on panel

I don't know why I found this one so difficult to do. But it was. I hope you enjoy today's big catch as much as this little guy did!

Morning Outing

6 x 6 oil on panel

Another fun one from my Lost Land Lake vacation series. The morning light was amazing along the sides of their faces and the dogs nose.
