This is another in my abstract Terrain series. I love how they evolve as I paint, taking me in new directions.

Terrain VII

Terrain VII
12"x12" Oil paint on Canvas
Available at Etsy

I have been experimenting with abstracted landscapes, taking natural forms and putting them together almost like a puzzle. It is really an interesting extension of my landscapes and farm scenes. It feels like creating poetry rather than telling a story. It makes my mind work in a new way. I have gotten positive responses from friends and clients, so I am going to keep working!

From Field to Field

From Field to Field
16" x 20" Oil Paint on Canvas
Available at Etsy

I tried to create layers of texture and color, almost quilt-like. The sky has a lot of waves of impasto, and I was very happy with how the land just floats and continues into the sky.

Far From the Madding Crowd
8" x 10" Oil paint on Canvas

Of course the title of this is taken from Thomas Hardy's novel, which I love. A little farm in an oasis of green. Very textured with thick impasto.

Blue Midnight

Blue Midnight I & II
8" x 10"

These were two fun experiments with night paintings. I was happy with the dramatic look the dark added as a background. Both have sold, although I don't copy any of my paintings,  I am always happy to do a similar one as a commission in any size.

Sheep Duo

Sheep Duo 14" x 14" Available at Etsy

I did two paintings in this style. One has sold and this fun pair is still available. The neutral background really makes the color stand out.
