Field with Cattails - Sold

After the last two distance paintings (actually, there's a third that's
not finished yet), it felt natural to carry on with the mark-making.
This was mostly just about the pleasure of pushing paint around.

March of the Trees 2

More adventures in trying to create space and mark-making.
Every preconception I had about painting landscapes was pretty much
wrong. No matter how much I look at other artists' landscapes, my brain
is slow to comprehend how they achieved a sense of distance, so lots of
trial and error . . .

Apple Heart

When I cut into this apple, I was taken with the heart shape but also
by its impish expression.

At the Bottom of the Road

A post at last! I've been painting every day except for a great week in Montana,
but the figures I had been working on weren't working out. Montana's views,  
big skies and constantly changing weather talked me into shifting to landscapes.
