Two New Paintings

These are a couple of new oils heading for The Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland, November 11-13, 2016.  You can find me and my twenty-five original oils in the Pavilion, right across the street from the Armory at 40 S. Harrison, Easton Maryland.  I hope to see you there!!

Crossing the Turning Tide

I posted this piece without birds a few weeks ago. It leaned against the wall for a while until I figured out what it needed.  Stilts seem to be the answer when I need a bird to add a bit of drama. These are North American black-necked stilts.  This will be one of twenty-five original oils that I'll be exhibiting at The Waterfowl Festival  in Easton, Maryland - November 11, 12 and 13th. You can find me in the Pavilion across the street from the Armory.

The second piece is the final piece I'm painting for the Waterfowl Festival. It's just a little guy - 11" x 11" but it gives me some ideas for a larger painting - eventually.

Work in Progress

This is still not quite finished - it may (or may not) have birds in it. I'm wanting to do large paintings of the sea - because of the abstract quality and colors.  This is my main goal for the next year or two.

Last Days of Autumn

A drive over Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado a few weeks ago, inspired this little oil. It will be one of twenty or more originals that I'll be showing at The Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland, November 11-13, 2016.
