    Bears Salmon Fishing

    Oil on 11x14 archival canvas panel. This is something like my fourth painting of bears catching salmon. I really enjoy doing these. There is nothing more rewarding for me than to portray God's beautiful creatures doing what they do in God's gorgeous country. My fear is that all this may one day disappear due to unthinking (or uncaring) mankind.

    Brown And White Rabbit

    Oil on 9x12 archival canvas panel. I had a devil of a time trying to upload images lately. The computer would kick me off just as I was about to publish them. Anyhoo, glad to be back.

    Contemporary Cat

    Oil 0n 7x5 archival canvas panel.

    I first toned the support with a mixture of warm acrylic colors. I then used oils to present the cat. Some colorful line work was used to describe the subject. Much of the original acrylic remains visible. This painting could be called contemporary or expressionistic. Something a bit different for me. I really enjoyed doing this one and like the results.

  • Cherry Tomatoes

    Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
    I was so inspired by the 1999 painting posted yesterday that I recreated a smaller version for today. It was very educational for me to study my past work so closely...there are several good concepts which I will 're-install' in my future paintings.

    Cherry Tomatoes-Still Life

    Oil on 8x10 canvas panel.
    I was browsing around upstairs where my old studio used to be. I came across this painting from 1999. The more I looked at it, the more things I saw in it that I liked. I used to paint completely in acrylic...this painting represents one of my first endeavors to resume painting with oils. An artists style takes many twists and turns as influences are encountered through the years. I am constantly wondering am I responding to the best ones. I guess ya might say that I'm always in a state of re-appraisel of my work. Maybe I'll do a few more along this line.

    Arctic Wolf-Wildlife Art

    Oil on archival 9x12 canvas panel. Ta Dahh!! Here he is...completed. I darkened much of the background and areas of the foreground plus added a few new colors to the foreground. Then I worked on the arctic wolf itself by darkening the shadow side and adjusting edges.
