I couldn't resist this profile! He seems to be guarding the beach!

For some reason Blogger has lost all the links to the Blogs I Follow. The gadget just disappeared from my page. I've been slowly adding them back. I hope I will be able to remember them all!


6x6 oil on cradled board

We got back from a wonderful trip to Florida on Saturday. Today I've been finishing up some paintings I started before we left. Here is a Kingfisher.

Navarre Beach, FL .... beautiful!

This might look a bit familiar. I painted a smaller version of this last month. I really like the shadow and color patterns so I've done it again a bit larger.

Das Bier Run

8x16 oil on cradled board

It's been a long time since I've posted so I thought I should give you an update on what's happening in my studio.  I mentioned a few commissions... well, I've been working on those. But along with that, I've been painting for a couple local shows that are coming up at the end of the year. I have to say... I've been pretty busy every day in my studio!

But this painting I started in early summer. I had done a smaller version a few years back and always wanted to try it a bit larger. I finally put the finishing touches on it yesterday! I hope local people recognize it as the Peoria Riverfront. It's based on a local 5k run that happens during Octoberfest. The Das Bier Run. It's a very family friendly and fun event.
