The Fall colors were so brilliant this year I had to try and capture them.
This was one of my few attempts to paint a still life. I find it very challenging.
This late fall scene was painted plein air on a friends farm near Rigby Idaho. It was a crystal clear day and the red bushes really caught my attention.
The recent elections inspired me on this painting. Wanted to show that there was conflict when the Nation was started.
Plein Air Painting of Broadway Avenue in Arches National Park. It was a really hot day even in the morning. This plus the changing light forced me to paint really fast.
Love the simplicity of this scene and the color harmony.
Quick little sketch of the old road to the ghost town of Hillsboro in the Dry Head country of Montana and Wyoming. I just love the Dry Head country as I grew up about 25 miles from the area depicted in this painting. There are a lot of old buildings still standing in Hillsboro, but they are farther down the canyon.
This is a painting of Taylor Mountain from Idaho Falls. The view is from the same spot I painted the Old Barn, just rotated 180 degrees. My main objective in this painting was to capture the hazy atmosphere of a warm summer afternoon.
This is a painting of an old barn in the Idaho Falls area. It was a nice day and several of us were out doing some plein air painting.
This was a barn I saw several years ago. On our last family vacation to Lake Roosevelt we drove past the barn again and I had to stop and take a picture of it to paint. It is a huge barn with the sides at least 12 foot high.
