English Countryside

16 x 20 oil on canvas


This one has been on and off the easel since October.  Today, it is done.  It is scene in southeast England, behind the school where my daughter Anna works.  Not far from here is the famous Hundred Acre Wood. Enjoy!

Shenandoah Valley - Reworked

16 x 20 oil on canvas

I decided to take this painting off the wall and rework it just a bit.  It was signed and completed months ago, but I always had intentions to get back to it and make some changes.  Now, the trees in the middle ground have opened up and the view of the valley is much better.  Also, I added rocks on the foreground for some more appealing variety.  Enjoy!

Middle of the Woods

14 x 11 oil on canvas panel

For this one I went to Jakes Branch Park in Beachwood and went off the path into the woods.  I came upon a small clearing and was surrounded by pine trees that stood quietly there as the falling sun peeked through their branches.  It is peaceful and comforting in the middle of the woods, and when I need to be re-centered, this is where I go.  Enjoy!
