Scrubby Woods

12x16 pastel

I have been working on larger paintings and experimenting with some things, not with much success I must say. I struggled with a painting for two days only to wipe it out at the end of the day yesterday. This is actually a painting I did last spring, but never posted it on my blog. I love the woods in the spring with all the subtle colors! This is one of my favorites.

My mom has been on me to paint this for about 18 years. This is my son probably around age three. Finally, I felt I could oblige her. Merry Christmas, Mom!

The Two Hunters

Collage and oil on stretched canvas
This one I must have picked up and put down at least four times before I finished it. Each time stopping when I couldn't take it any further. The reference photo was from my grandmother's old photo album. The caption for this photo was "Britt's Camp". I have to point out for those who may have missed it, the one is dressed in typical hunter attire, while the other in street clothes (or the typical dress of the day).
