8-28-08 "After the Snow Storm"

There are times when the sky seems heavy and loaded with snow, ready to touch the ground. I've seen that effect during many snow storms. You'll se it when there is a lull in the storm but more is on the way.

work in progress

I'm still working on a winter theme and the weather here in Iowa is reminding me old man winter is on his way. The lower painting is the first washes of the sky and the top painting has a cut out of a couple of barns. Sometimes I use a cut out to get the placement right.

10-18-08 "Comin' up from deer hunting"

Some days we wonder what we are doing outside in the bad weather but that's where a lot of hunters find themselves and a lot of farmers are also deer hunters. November is the perfect time for hunting. Many evenings like this one presented this view of my neighbors farm as I walked home after hunting. I like the cold, stark atmosphere this painting conveys.

Back at it!

I just started to paint with no real idea or real location in mind. I haven't done something like that in several years. Usually work from a real scene somewhere but not this time. The finished painting will probably be a snowfall scene. I've been working on house projects so much lately that the blog has had to suffer.
