The Fall Lineup

Oil on Linen

After completing one of the large abstracts and thinking carefully about color placement and hard edges, I always like to return to a more liberal use of paint application. Also, a good warm up for plain air painting....fast, no fuss.

Dream Stream

Oil on Linen

I used the image from my Wisconsin Stream painting as a start for this work. I liked the design of the stream working back to the horizon. The water, even in the abstract style, was the most difficult. I was pleased with the overall color and design balance.
