Day 11 in progress: Starting a new urban series this week. Revisiting my favorite architectural structures and possibly other favorite moments from our area in the coming weeks. Location: Richardson,TX
Day 10 and I am finding inspiration right outside my studio window. I do feel the difference painting my clouds after yesterday’s cloud study. As well as these 30 paintings in 30 days typically make for some interesting learnings. Location: Richardson, TX
Switching gears today to take gain a better understanding of our clouds in the area this February. Winters clouds seem to provide a slightly different structure and movement than our warmer seasons. Location: Richardson, TX
This might be the start of a new series. Taking a break from my bright snowscape paintings. Today, I was inspired by the many crows that migrate to our region each winter. Location: Richardson, TX
Continuing my snowscape series, featuring a rather large snow drift with more portraits of trees surrounding it. Today’s inspiration comes from a back corner located behind my in-law’s house. This area catches the wind gust swirling back out creating this large drift. Location: Ellendale, MN
Thank you for following this journey thus far of my various snowscapes. Initially, I felt 10 snow scenes might be enough for this series. We will see when I arrive at that total on this Friday the 10th.
In today’s painting, I revisited the front fields of my in-laws farm with the use of my dew-drop like technique. Location: Ellendale, Minnesota.
Continuing my snowscape series, I return to my in-laws house in the bright afternoon sun. Location: Ellendale, Minnesota.
I kicked off this past Super Bowl Sunday with a painting based on a town close to the three previous paintings. Today’s inspiration comes from the town of New Richland, Minnesota.
This week was Ground Hog Day, which does not seem to have much meaning down south here where my family and I live. This charming holiday still holds a special place in my heart. Maybe because I recall the heavy winters of western New York as a child.
Anyway, we still took time to watch and see if Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. He did see it. That means we have to still wait for spring, which we do anyway. Today’s inspiration: The front fields of snow at my In-laws farm in Southern Minnesota.
