Neighborhood Greens

17" x 11" watercolor on paper. This is just a rather quick watercolor sketch on drawing paper. I really enjoy doing these types of fast sketches pushing shapes, value, and color. I've been a bit under-the-weather lately, so updates have been less frequent. Will try to do better.Posted by Picasa

Foggy Coast Morning

20" x 32" acrylic on canvas (unframed diptych)
$40.00 (free shipping)
This is my first try at a diptych (two canvases representing one image). The view is a foggy morning along an imaginary coastal city. The background bridge is almost obscurred by the rolling fog. I kind of like how this one turned out. I'm going to try this one on eBay.Posted by Picasa

Charles Sovek

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Charles Sovek. His web site states that he died on June 8th.

I consider Mr. Sovek to be a modern master artist, and I have learned a great deal from his fine books and in a workshop I took with him in AZ. Please take a look at his very nice site that is linked here to the right.

Thank you, Charles. You will be dearly missed by all of your many fans out here!

June 6, 1944 "D-Day"

I'm a day late for this. No art today. Instead, I wanted to say a special thank you to our "Greatest Generation" for their ultimate sacrifice.

I am somewhat of an amateur history buff. Today, 63 years ago, men from the US and England began the long campaign to defeat Nazi Germany. The price they paid was enormous, and I want to thank them and all the others who bravely fought in those days.

Thank you does not say enough!
