Dappled Day With the Sycamores

























Oil on Panel
16"x20"

This is the second painting I have done in my neighbor's yard. With the White River to my back, I was looking at the West, with morning sun still low and also behind me. The puzzle like dappled light is always enjoyable to paint at this site.

Confetti Trees II

















Oil on Linen
24"x36"

This is another painting in the abstract series using the tree as the subject. The process was to start with the big vertical shapes and start breaking it down into shapes of color. No blending allowed.  I have big color shapes in mind but follow with the smaller shapes, almost pixel like, but more random.

TC Steele Home



















SOLD
Oil on Panel
12"x16"

This was a painting I completed earlier this month as a warm up for the May 19 TC Steele Paintout. I always enjoy painting there with other artists and feel the vibe from TC Steele walking and painting at the same site.

This is Carol's Garden from New Harmony. A beautiful garden, very private with trees in a canopy over a simple, but elegant fountain.
