A Distant Prospect

A Distant Prospect 12" x 12" oil on canvas $200 on Etsy

I love the lonely barns out in the countryside. The edges are painted and are 1 1/2 thick, so it is ready for hanging, with or without a frame.

Three Friends

Three Friends 30" x 30" Available framed or unframed
oil on canvas

This is a painting I did a few years ago and it is one of my favorites. I like the mix of colors and I think I found a good balance between the figures and background.  It was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize in Houston.

I just recently put it up for sale on Etsy.

One Wee Goat 8" x 8" oil painting on canvas at Etsy

I painted this a few months ago after visiting a local ranch, which is home to dozens of goats.  They are fascinating characters!

I also did a very large version, 36" x 36"-- I had this very dramatic image of them in my head and loved working in this larger scale!

We Three 36" x 36" Available at Lafontsee Galleries

Electric Sheep II

Electric Sheep II 16" x 20" oil on canvas

This painting is a very recent one, that is now showing at Lafontsee Galleries in Grand Rapids, MI.

The title comes from Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I just thought of the green/orange/blue colors as electric, a surreal landscape for these guys.
