February 11 - Araucana Egg (Chicken)

"Araucana Egg, Broken" It's been a few warm days and the chickens are waking up out of their winter doldrums, and an egg appeared! I decided to celebrate its arrival by capturing the fresh, high yolk in this daily painting, original oil, 6 x 6 inches on gallery-wrap (no framing needed). Available for $100 on ebay.

February 9 - Crossing the River (Western)

"Crossing the River" Having a lot of fun painting pieces for the Cattlemen's Western Art Show, the first weekend in March, this 16 x 20 oil came off my brushes today. I'll go over it again once it is drier, but this is the essense of the painting done alla prima.

February 8 - Forest Pool, Waterfall

"Forest Pool" An interesting size, this oil on board is 4.75" by 7.25" which makes for a great height-to-width ratio in this composition. I may have mentioned it, but I really, REALLY enjoy painting water and reflections! Available for $100 with an instant click via PayPal or contact me viaemail.

February 7 - Grevy's Zebras

"Grevy's Zebras" Endangered, yet so appealing, I painted these three Grevy's Zebras from reference photographs from the Living Desert Museum, where they have about seven of these. Of course, I let them loose in Africa. Someday I'll get there, too! 12 x 16 oil on board, on its way to the Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, KY.

February 6 - Western Art Backlit Sunset

"Partners" I love to do backlit work. This is an 11 x 14 acrylic, with layers of color using my color system, and it ends up being a nice, colorful western piece that reads right. $420

February 5 - Ocean Waves and Tide Pools

"Wave Motion" I really like this painting, which I tweaked a bit today and added some palette knife passages. The strength of the diagonals vs. the vertical of the rocks is what makes this one sing for me. Plus the blue/orange colors. This was done on location north of Dana Point, below the cliffs south of Laguna Beach. Original acryic on canvas, 8x16 inches, $320
