I have neglected this blog for some time now. Not good. I am turning over a new leaf and plan to resume regular postings, the only way to maintain ongoing viewers. Here are some recent figurative pieces with a little comment on each.

I participated in a figurative show at one of my galleries, Local Color in Nashville, TN during Sept.- Oct. and this was my entry. 40"x30" on stretched canvas. I have enjoyed working larger of late and plan to continue. As usual, click on each image to enlarge.

Stuck on River Road

With my daughter as the model and Cumberland MotorWerks as the backdrop, my attempt here was to create a story piece. This is a large oil on stretched canvas, 32"x40".

Flynne Flying

My great-niece, Flynne, jumping on a trampoline alongside her Aunt Mollie. I opted for this radical cropping to establish my focal point, not because I have a problem with my niece, Mollie. I'll paint her again later. They are all fantastic models. Feel free to let me know what you think of this crop. The painting is 30"x19", oil on stretched canvas.
