Red Finch - SOLD

Another painting of a red finch sunning himself on a tree top. I am pleased with this painting. I was able to loosen up and not be as careful. Doesn't seem logical but that usually makes for a better end result. It's about letting the paint be paint. This a is a 6 x 6 inch oil available in my Etsy shop for $100.

Bison Twins - GIFTED

Another painting based on our bison tour at the Zapata Ranch last spring. The hardest part of this painting for me was the foreground grass. I wiped it out a few times. I didn't want so much detail that it became a distraction from the real focus. I tend to put in too much detail. The other challenge was to make the bison in the back look like it's further back. This is a 6 x 9 inch framed oil painting and is available for $175 at the John Deaux Gallery in Pueblo, CO. Call the gallery or email me if you're interested in buying this painting.

Prairie Sunset - SOLD

​This painting is of one of the many spectacular sunsets we see from our new location. This 6.5 x 10 inch framed oil painting sold for $200 as soon as it got to the local Pueblo gallery but I'm putting it online anyway. My 2015 painting plan is to focus on the prairie sky and sunsets. I have so many ideas for paintings I know I could easily spend the rest of my life working on them.

Treetop Finch - SOLD

Colorado has 300 days of sunshine a year. Even though it can be very cold outside, the sun is usually shining. This red house finch and his pals were taking advantage of the sunshine on a cold day last week sitting on the top of a pine tree and soaking up the rays. This painting is available unframed in my Etsy shop. Click here to purchase. To see my other available paintings click here.
