Hurley Park Late Summer

12″ x 9″ Oil on Panel

A plein air painting from Hurley Park in Salisbury.  It was tweaked a bit in my studio.  I find that I sometimes need to revisit a painting to adjust the values and colors to my liking.

The Sunflower Farm

The Sunflower Farm 6x10

6″ x 10″ Oil on board

The sunflowers are in bloom.  When I went to the field a storm was approaching.  So this is a small studio painting that will fit a barn wood frame that my father made.

This is my second painting for the NC Open Plein Air event in Salisbury.  I was very happy that it received an Honorable Mention.  Perhaps I should have called it “A Study in Green.”

This is my Gold Hill painting for the NC Open Plein Air event last weekend.  I tweaked it a bit in my studio this week adding more splashes of color.  Gold Hill is a painter’s paradise about five minutes from my home.

Spencer Summer II

Spencer Summer II 14x11

14″ x 11″ Oil on canvas panel

This is a studio painting.  It was just to hot to paint on site so I took photos and worked from my computer monitor in my studio pretending to be on location.  This was easier in the sense that the sunlight/shadows weren’t changing.  Also I could take my time painting in air conditioning.  However, I really do prefer to paint outside.  Guess it is the challenge.
