Bass and Bream

Subject matter is a typical scene on a farm pond in rural Tennessee. This pond is great for nice sized bass. I always use a dark colored plastic worm slipped over the hook just right to give a realistic wiggle through the water.

Dixon Gardens Path

Dixon Gallery and Gardens is a beautiful place to have a leisurely walk, contemplate the silence and identify trees and plants.

Zion Park Study 2

Another of a series done from reference photos supplied by my son from a recent trip out west. I added some extra shadows and zoomed in on a section of a much larger photo.

My son recently returned from a trip out west and brought back a lot of photo reference for me. This is my take on a scene from Zion National Park. This is painted on Ampersand Aquabord and will be sprayed with a clear varnish before shipping.

Two Lamps

These lamps have been sitting around our house for as long as I can remember. I like the way the light goes through the oil.
