Lily Pond


“Lily Pond”
9” x 12″ (Oil on Canvas Board)

June 2014 – Athens, TX

This is a recent studio painting I did after taking a workshop in May from 
Artist, Bruce Peil. We did studies in class of this scene.
It was a very informative class and we stayed in the
Peil’s 1900 Craftman’s style B&B during the three day class.
Great group of painters!

Ennis Bluebonnets


Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″

 This is a painting that I just completed for my Daughter, Amber. It was done from a photo by a photographer friend, Michelle Johnson. It depicts a scene taken last spring of bluebonnet fields outside Ennis, Texas. You might spot a small black calf in the middle ground near it’s mother. It represents a calf born this fall on a farm Amber and her family visit. I enjoy painting this type of painting and hope they will enjoy it too.

Church and River Suir, Cahir, Tipperary, Ireland

This is a painting I recently completed of the River Suir in Ireland. The small river fall made an interesting composition against the river and church in the background. My Niece took a trip to Ireland last year and shared this photo with me to paint.  Oil on Canvas, 22″ x 28″
