Plein air in my driveway!







Sometimes I find I take for granted places I see day after day, like my driveway, and skip over potential paintings because of this. So...I set up my easel in the driveway, and in no time at all, was inspired to paint. My focus landed on the shadows cast by the Salt Pine tree.

My friend Clement Scott and I had a recent plein air adventure near the Amerind Foundation in Dragoon, Arizona.
 


 It is an area full of history, and about a million paintings waiting to happen! We had a blast, and this painting, now up for auction on DailyPaintworks, is the result of that day.  
If ever in this neck of the woods, a visit to the Amerind Foundation is a definite must! Well worth it.

"Strut" - My painting of chickens

"Strut" 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel
up for auction!
Starting bid $45. Click here to see auction.

Some years ago, we attempted having chickens. Attempted being the key word there. They had so much personality. I had taken a photo that I thought really captured their personalities, and thus a painting was born!

Another small painting of Northern Arizona scenery. I really enjoyed the process of painting this one. There was an effortless flow that happened while painting it, which was such a welcomed rarity from the usual struggle to get my vision on to canvas:)

Twisted!

This old Juniper tree was located right next to our campsite while staying near Escalante, Utah. It really struck me with it's twisted, almost braided looking trunk. It had a very old and magical presence, like it had witnessed much in it's day. A definite must paint subject!
