You Can’t Catch Me!

You Can't Catch Me 14x18

14″ x 18″ Oil on canvas panel

This is Piper, my happy little Schnoodle.  She loves to run and chase.  On a recent trip to Fredericksburg, Texas, we took some photos of her among the Blue Bonnets.  The wildflowers were beautiful this year.

Several years ago these young Mockingbirds visited our deck in Missouri.  They both sat still for the camera.  This is just a quick impression in oil.

Young Mockingbird

Young Mockingbird12x9

12″ x 9″ Oil on panel

Harold Frontz, http://www.frontzstudio.com/ ,is giving a workshop at my studio in Rail Walk Studios and Gallery in Salisbury, NC.  His focus this week was on birds.  I made a couple attempts during the workshop from my photo, but wiped them off.  Harold has an impressionistic style.  It just won’t come out of my arm.  This mockingbird was later painted on top of the wipe out.  Not sure I’m finished.?

Not a commission.  Not a portrait.  Not a particular person.  Just a young girl holding one of her best friends.

Koi

Koi 24x20

24″ x 20.5″ Oil on Galvalume

I enjoy painting on the smooth surface of Galvalume.  There is a wood frame attached to the back.  The painting appears to float on the wall or it may be framed with a traditional frame.
