"Aqua Gold"

"Aqua Gold" 18x24 oil
After spending a few days away from the studio on a fishing trip with some good friends, I came back to work with a renewed enthusiasm! This one was off to a good start, but I really enjoyed spending the last 2 days finishing it off.
Maybe something bigger up next???

Birds In Art 2015

"Twilight Watch"
I got the "BIG email" Thursday morning with news of my acceptance into the 2015 Birds In Art exhibition at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau. The painting "Twilight Watch" made the cut and I couldn't be happier. It will be great to see all my BIA friends again on opening weekend in September.
While 2015 marks my 9th consecutive year in the Birds In Art exhibit, this one is special. In the past, my entries were painted in acrylic. This year I held my breath entering oil paintings for the first time. So along with the sigh of relief, the acceptance email offered up some uplifting and inspirational validation for the new direction of my work.

"Pony Sunset"

"Pony Sunset" 6x12 oil
I'm a little frustrated with my uploaded photo. I had a hell of a time getting a digital image that looked anything like the painting, but finally got something close. Now that I have it uploaded to my blog, the image has changed again and looks nothing like the actual painting. Ugh!
