A Bowl of Birds & a Bison 12x16
I’ve tried incorporating some antique toys and collectibles into still lifes lately. This has been surprising difficult, as it’s easy for the paintings to become cartoony with the addition of the toys. This has been my most successful still life, maybe because the small objects are not so cartoony themselves.
Motel Galata 48x36
Motel Galata exists in northern Montana! The painting is in the permanent collection of contemporary western art at the Booth Museum in Cartersville, GA.
Fruit & Veggies 9x12
The reflected light bouncing off of all these things was exciting!
Safe Haven 24x24
In a field of cows, this tree managed to well position itself in a place where it would receive much rain run off. Growing inside this old car also guaranteed that as a fledgling, it wouldn’t be trampled by cows. I love what happens in nature!
Red & Yellow Fruit 11x14
I loved all the color here, across the spectrum!
