Lisa & Shaun Christmas Eve

My housemates were so kind to indulge me by posing yesterday. They have been so kind to me and I wanted to give them this special gift. Fortunately they like the impressionistic style in which I paint.

Winter Solstice, Colorado

Denver Colorado Plein Air group met at Englewood, Colorado this week. The fields and trees were somewhat bleak & muted, but the mountains glowed vibrant in purples beneath the cobalt sky.

Grand Scale Of Things

While driving over to paint with the PAAC painters this vista caught my eye. I had to return to try to capture it. Again I used a birchwood panel coated with clear varnish.

Winter Canal

This canal is part of the Cherry Creek spillway that runs behind the house where I live. I walked a half mile or so to this spot that seemed to glow in the winter sunlight. The square birchwood panel is nicely finished. I coated it with a clear varnish leaving the natual wood color to come through in some areas.

Elk Meadow

Evergreen, Co had a cold wind blowing and the artists didn't stick around very long. I painted on a Museum profile linen canvas. I used the natural color of the canvas, first coating the canvas with Damar varnish.
