Messing up on this one. This is the Hinkley travel lift in Southwest harbor. Couldn't get it to look loose and natural.

So sad looking cows there, or could be rhynos. This is about 200 yards to the right of the last post

Road side flowers

This is a field of flowers I saw today while looking for nice views. This is about 20 minutes west of Ft. Worth.

Apple blocks cup

6x8 oil

That apple has poor value. I got behind on that value, and couldn't bring it around. I did wipe it off twice but.....Must be tough going for the paint today.

Apple and pink

6x6 oil on hardboard

This is an apple. I guess the photo washed out more of the red in the light side of the apple and it looks too yellow. The pink cylinder is the same color as the box shape used in my other paintings.

Just Bottled fruit

8x10 oil on wood

Trying to get the paint warmed up. Shouldn't have used a trasparent olive colored bottle though. Really humid today.

Cesar "planes of the head"

5x7 oil

These are paintings of "the planes of the face" plaster cast. The second is a little blurry in the photo. They're both the same size, just cropped a little off. The second has the cast rotated to the light a little bit. Different pose.

Country fields

9x12 oil on canvas

This is looking the other way, down the road from the last painting. Who thought that school work would get in the way of a little painting? The horizon was really this hazy.
