This is my first painting of 2019 and it just happens to be my first commission of the year as well. A photograph by John Snell, newsperson and photographer of Louisiana, is once again the inspiration for my painting.
This is what I’m currently working on. It’s a chilly rainy Sunday and it feels like fall. I’m not ready for fall yet.
Currently on display at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in historic Fountain Square, Indianapolis.
Another new work to be featured at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery’s September exhibit, Trees. Stop in at this unique gallery in historic Fountain Square for the opening on Friday, September 7. I look forward to meeting you!
I just finished this yesterday and although it’s already sold, it will be featured at Trees, an exhibit at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in Historic Fountain Square starting Friday, September 7. If you’re in Indianapolis, please come check out this exhibit featuring my work and that of Matthew Sheek and Sarah Rae Cote. Hope to see you there!
I just finished this painting, inspired by another of John Snell’s stunning photographs. It will be featured at Hotel Tango on Virginia Ave., near Fountain Square in Indianapolis as part of my solo exhibit. Come check it out on First Friday, September 7, 2018.
Done and signed, and off to Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in historic Fountain Square. If I can’t be standing on the beach, I can paint it and look at it while hoping it speaks to someone else.
Western Lake in Grayton Beach Florida, with its iconic stand of pines on the shore, is one of my favorite and most popular scenes to paint. This one sold before I had finished it and is already in its new home in Santa Rosa Beach.
I grew up in New Orleans and my grandparents lived just a block from Lake Pontchartrain. This reminds me of childhood days, looking at the sailboats from the sun parlor upstairs. Sold!
I’m looking for a name for this painting I completed recently. Any ideas?
I’ve been working on this big one for months now and I’m finally starting to like it. Thoughts?
After a few months of being tired, ill and unmotivated, I’ve been working on some big paintings lately and this one was inspired by a smaller one I did a couple of years ago that’s still one of my personal favorites. I really like the 36 x 36 size and it’s hanging over my sofa in my newly painted den/kitchen/great room until it goes to my upcoming exhibit. What do you think?
This is from a photograph by an old friend and accomplished photographer, Colleen Kerrigan. These are live oaks along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Live oaks are evergreen and don’t lose their leaves so they look like this always! They can live for hundreds of years and the old ones are huge and majestic. If you’re in Indianapolis, stop by Mass Ave Wine Shop downtown, where I have quite a few of my paintings on display currently. This one will be there as soon as I finish it!
I’ve mentioned before how much I love Frank Relle’s photographs. This one took my breath away, and I’m working on my painting of it now. Here’s the finished product, ready to sign! I’m really excited about this one, and thank you again, Mr. Relle, photographer extraordinaire, for your generosity of spirit!
