“A Goodnight Rain” Oil painting

“A Goodnight Rain” Oil on stretched canvas 8×10″ (For Sale)┬áThis is another oil painting experiment in response to several requests for landscapes. I found the reference photo in my archives from a hay field near Mountain Grove Missouri. A storm had just passed over and the sky was a wash of soft pinks, peaches and brilliant blues, birds were singing and the smell of rain filled the air and a cool breeze blew I had to stop and soak it all up like the dry ground. It was one of those moments where I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t in a fairy tale!

“Abandoned Autumn”

This painting is a few years old, but I never had the chance to get a good photo doc of it until now. Just in time for autumn, my favorite time of year!

Cloverhill Dairy Sign

This was my first large scale, ‘mini mural’. It is four feet tall and eight feet wide. Before this I had only done 16×20″ art at the largest. Struggling with this sign introduced me to techniques I would need on murals later. It is located on North 95, four miles out of Mountain Grove MO.
