Farm to Market Views

6x8" Acrylic on canvas panel
Just past the exit to Engle, TX, I see a big traditional style red barn my way out to the ranch on FM2238.  I added a few modifications to help with the design, but you'd recognize the barn, trees and fenced in area right away.

Waipu Cove

6x8" Acrylic on canvas panel
This scene of Waipu Cove in New Zealand, was painted in an online workshop on how to paint more loosely.  It was also timely, because I was supposed to be aboard the Carnival Triumph ship destined for the Caribbean. That cancelled and now has waste running over the decks (yuck). I needed something clean, loose and beechy.

Fer Rent, Purty Views

6x8" Acrylic on canvas panel (sold)

Every time I turn onto Gebert Dr in Muldoon, TX, I see the most patched up, dilapidated, rickety barn, but it has a million-dollar view.  As an artist, I had to put a "Fer Rent" sign on it.

Texas Country Highways

6x8" Acrylic on canvas panel
When leaving Weimar, TX down old Holman Highway, this view is unmistakable.  Seeing the huge oak, windy road and the Texas Highway composed itself.  I just painted. The reference picture is here.
