The Way Home

This is the finished painting. I am extremely happy with this one and can't wait to get started on another one. I love the black I mixed for this piece. I used sap green and alizarin crimson with a touch of ultramarine blue. It is really rich and has depth; I find that the blacks that come from the tube can be really flat looking. I will be delivering this painting today, just in time for it to be revealed at Karen and Jon's Christmas  Open House. (Can't wait to see it on the wall guys.)

Commission in Progress

This is a sneak peak at another highway series painting I am working on. This is a commissioned piece, so it already has a home, which is very exciting. The photo is full of glares, but I wanted to post a  progress photo. I still have lots to do on it, and it will probably reincarnate a bit - but here is the start.
