House Near the River Bottoms

This painting typifies my favorite time of year for landscapes.  It's late winter and the grass is beginning to green while the deciduous trees are still dormant without foliage.

Boulevard (Late Evening)

Click to Bid,  18 by 24 inches,  Acrylic on panel
I was interested in painting this scene mainly because of the reflection of the stop lights on the lower pavement.  The cloud patterns suggest the end of a storm.

Sleepy Time Teddy Top

Click to Bid,  8 by 10 inches,  Acrylic on acid free illustration board
I purchased this top at an antique store a few weeks ago.  I like the unique handle and graphics.  To do the painting I set up the still life on a mirror in a darkened room.

Railroad Crossing (Saturday Morning)

Click to Bid,   Acrylic on panel, 14 by 18 inches,
I've always been interested in graffiti. I grew up near a train track and we saw plenty of graffiti.
The spray cans used in graffiti painting are similar to airbrush painting. (Except on a larger scale.) Recently I was lucky enough to photograph some graffiti painted train cars in my hometown.  Those photos were used as reference in the painting process.
