I thought I'd post a sunset as we wind down the lovely month of October. I love this time of year and love to celebrate it by painting pictures that reflect it. In Alabama, it doesn't usually get really cool until November and we have some of the most beautiful sunsets in that month. Anybody know why that is?? Whatever the reason, I can't wait to capture some of that beauty in paint!

I painted this piece back in the summer, but it's just been delivered to Stonehenge Gallery. It was painted with a reddish undertone which I hope gives it a little glow. The photo produced a little glare on the left hand side unfortunately. Artist Clark Walker has a show opening at the gallery this Thursday - can't wait to get in there and see all the new art!

Just when you think no one is reading your blog, someone tells you that they are and it makes your day!! So - I decided to try and post more frequently! This one just took first place at the Montgomery Art Guild-Alabama National Fair Show. It wasn't a plein air painting, but I wanted to paint it as if I was outside by painting quickly with expressive brushwork. It's 11"x14". It was done from a photograph taken in rural Montgomery County.

My friend and fellow artist, Melissa Tubbs, and I are having a show during this month at Clay Scot Artworks in Birmingham. Melissa does incredible pen & ink drawings...you'll be amazed at the beautiful work she does! This 36"x36" painting, "Canopy", is one several large skyscapes I have completed for the show. Hope you can drop by!
