It's Been a While!

I'm not sure why I haven't felt like posting lately. Maybe the heat and humidity are combining to drag me down a bit. Seems I've been struggling to complete anything other than a handful of quick sketches. In any case, "Shallow Crossing" is 7x5 (acrylic) and hopefully marks the end of this stretch of limited productivity. It felt good to actually finish something and sign it!

"River Rock" 8x6 acrylic

Slightly larger than the 7x5 format I've been working with recently, this is the first time I've worked with 8x6. I really like this size. Incidentally, this painting and the previous one posted on this blog are of the same stretch of Little Sandy Creek... viewed from opposite directions. Fun stuff!

"Standing in Dad's Boots" 7x5 acrylic

I'm having a great time painting these small river-scapes. The title for this one is inspired by a friend whose dad spent a lot of time on this stream before he died a few years back.
