work in progress

More detail has been added to this painting. I will be adding shadows values to the shed and detailing the fence, windows, trees, and foreground next.

Local Exhibition

Locally, I will have some of my paintings on exhibition in The Kirksville Arts Center gallery beginning June 30. The Arts Center is located a few blocks north of the Truman University campus in Kirksville MO. I will have more on this later.

The Locker

I am establishing color relationships and contrasts in this painting. The predominate theme, as far as color, will be red-orange with shades of brown and blue shadows.

Purple Landscape

This painting is now finished and listed on my Etsy website.

Landscape changes

I have made some changes to this painting. I removed the line of trees, which was a distraction and provided too much contrast and replaced them with a softer background to better harmonize with the rest of the painting. I may make a few minor changes and will then post this new painting on Etsy.

New Landscape

This is a work in progress I posted a sketch of earlier. The above is a updated sketch and the beginning of the painting. I have worked on the background and the dark value in the center of this painting. The bottom third of this work is to consist of a rock slope with shadows and some green values for balance.


This is a quick sketch of a new painting I will be working on. It is an abandoned meat locker which contains some interesting angles and off center dimensions. I will be posting updates
on this work.
