Spring Tulips

Spring Tulips 12x12 oil on wood 

I created this in the studio from a set up. The light source was streaming in the window. It is always inspiring to paint from life.  I love the transparent look the flowers gave in the afternoon light. This was created with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.

Created with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.

Allure of An Early Morning

Allure of An Early Morning 10x8 oil on cradle panel

The warm winter grasses inspired this painting.  I started this with a quick thumbnail sketch and recorded color notes on the side.  I used a Winsor & Newton paper that is designed for oil paints.  It's a great way to explore color combinations and design.

Winter Grasses

Winter Grasses 8x10 oil on canvas

To me this is the typical winter scene in North Texas. The grasses provide the fields with warm colors and changing texture. Spring is right around the corner and the green grasses are pushing through providing a nice balance.

Cloud Dreams

Cloud Dreams 8x10 oil on canvas

Watching clouds from on a lazy summer day brings a sense of peace and comfort for me.  Do you take time to watch the clouds floating by? I remember as a child laying on the grass and finding animals and people in the clouds. 

I created this using a palette knife and layers of oil paint. 

These are filled with color and texture.

Yellow Spring Day

Yellow Spring Day 8x10 oil on canvas

This joyful scene is in one my favorite painting locations in Benbrook, Texas. The yellow flowers dominated the landscape in this scene. I wanted to highlight those, but couldn't resist pointing the road to the fabulous clouds.  See the progression shots I took while I painted it. This was created with a palette knife with the canvas toned in dioxide purple.

Red Buds Blooming

Red Buds Blooming 10x8 oil on canvas

I continue my study of color in these small landscape paintings. Since it is time for the red bud trees to bloom I wanted to explore the color in the blooms. They look purple in the landscape, but when you get closer they take on a hot pick color. Or a mix of the two. I will keep practicing to produce that perfect combo.

I did post a video of the start of this painting. I continued to work on it and scraped most of the paint off and like this new look.

Texas Blues

Texas Blues 8x10 oil on canvas panel
This is the forth in my series of playing with color.  This is a combination of thalo blue and ultramarine blue. To me, blue is the color of peace, it increases calmness and creates beauty.  Spring is coming and I can't wait to search for these blooming beauties.

Azalea's Design

Azalea's Design12x9 oil on canvas

This was inspired from a photo I took at the Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens. We were there for a wedding and had the opportunity to wander through the garden. The sun was setting casting a glow to the blooming bushes. It was a fun challenge to make sense of the flower bush.

Pink Blossoms

Pink Blossoms 18x14 oil on canvas
This saucer magnolia blooms are one of the first of the trees to show their color.  When I was close to the park I drove by often to check the blooming status on these trees. I would go back with my painting gear and paint them during my lunch hour.  I was happy to paint this one  in the studio and loved the opportunity to take my time and build this up with layers and texture.
