Now to a much warmer feeling landscape. The sky is glowing and yet the clouds are still casting bluer undertones. You know I like pushing the colors and here that's what I have done. Warmer thought 6 X 6.

Night time lake view with the moon topping the distant tree line. Then the reflection hit the water and it turned into a moment with the maker. since words can describe what you are feeling at the time maybe a picture can. Sit and enjoy the moment with me.

SOLDInspired by the weather we have been having in Texas. Yesterday it was 72 in the morning by last night it was 32. This morning even colder with a fire in the fireplace. This weather in Texas is amazing. So I felt like the windy sky was cooling and the ground was still very warm from the morning sun.. That's why I call this piece Warm & Hot. 6X6 Gesso Board.

Well back to the painting this view went on for ever it seemed. The spot just was so calming and relaxing I really enjoyed it. The other calming effect was all the blues war and cool and of course the breeze that afternoon was delightful.

I see these cars and trucks just sitting in the fields of East Texas. I'm attracted to them because I know there is a story about each of them. Sometimes I can just imagine and wounder. Where they have been and what have they seen in there day.
I also enjoy painting them in the raw will the rust and ware and tare of life. I also hear story's from the people who buy them and they often say this reminds me of ___________ fill in the blank. or this was just like the family car or my dad had one he just loved. I would very much like to hear your story if you willing to share. Side note I have no idea of the make and model or year could you help me.

My Art story:
It's my wife's fault,
I say that because she's the one who signed me up for art lessons one year for my birthday.
She's also the one that reminded me of my mom's talent and how I sketched and painted as a kid. I was even more surprise one day at a local fair that I sold one of my pieces of artwork for $300. My Art career has taken off since then, winning local art shows and selling my art all over the United States . I have my wife to thank for this career and I thank God for her encouragement.

I liked how the large oak was covering everything, and to paint it in such a way that it was in the painting yet not the focus. The bed of Tulips is what caught my eye peaking out from under the shadow of the red bush . I just wanted to share this treasure of a find with you.

Wanted you to see the last light of another long day. I know how life can be so busy and crazy and all of a sudden its gone and done. Sometimes some one or something gives you hope and puts a smile on your face. Well here is my attempt to do just that for you. You may have missed this but here it is last nights sunset. Yes I paint my therapy and hopefully it will help you as well. Keep smiling.

Taught me allot in a recent work shop in Texas. I know he has inspired my painting in a very positive way. I would highly recommend learning from his talent.
Metal against a neutral back ground with fruit as a contrasting center of interest. The glow and reflections caught my eye with this setup. Hope it catches yours like it did for me.

Majesty, Splendor, Glory, All very appropriate names and descriptions don't you think. Love the painting and the subject and all the endless references. The brushwork on a board is so delicate and challenging. Seems the photos pick it up more than in real life. The sky transition from a cool distant sky above to a glowing distant fading sun.

What is going on here you have a glowing sky lighting up the background. The distance hills are capturing the glow turning the blue distance hills into a mauve splendor. The mid section is cooling down with a cool blue in the field. You can see the warm sky trying to cut through the trees. Is it too much man was it allot of fun.
