I am working on a new landscape and posting progress as it comes together. In the lower image I am concentrating on the lights and darks and establishing a color theme. In the middle image I have detailed more of the rock formation and added some highlights in the grass. The top image
has more detail and I have slightly darkened the foreground. This painting will be finished in a few days and will be listed in my Etsy shop.

Early stages of a new painting. Lights and dark areas are roughed in although I am undecided as to the floral arrangement for this painting. I like the diagonal design of the light shining through the window. I wanted a dark background for this one so as to emphasize the color in the flowers.

This is a painting I have been working on. It combines two different paint applications. It is 11 X 14, has a palette knife under-painting and was over-painted with a fan brush on gallery wrapped canvas. It indicates a more loose, painterly approach with cool colors in the background and warmer in the foreground. It is almost finished and will be listed in my Etsy shop.

This new painting is something a little different. I used a fan brush almost exclusively on this one. It gives this work a light, airy, impressionistic feel. It is 11 X 14 on Ampersand archival quality gesso board panel and is now listed in my Etsy shop.

This is the final update on this painting. I have indicated the trees and worked on the lake. A little more detail and color work to do, especially on the trees and foreground. Trees in the background and foreground will be softened slightly and more color added to harmonize this area with the rest of the painting. This painting should be finished in a few days.

I'm planning a few new paintings in the coming days. A new mountain landscape, Seascape, and one which I have a quick color sketch previewed. In these quick studies I am not stressing detail, but establishing dark and light values in the painting. I am using a combination of Hookers green and cadmium Red for the darks. I plan to use a fairly intense red for the lower third of this painting.

after the underpaint had dried. I have not decided exactly what will complete the foreground as yet. This painting will be completed shortly and available for sale in my Etsy shop.
