Brandywine Museum

30"x40" oil/linen
This is a new piece I did of The Brandywine Museum in Chaddsford Pa. It is an impressive structure that I couldn't resist tackling with paint. There are many trees that I left out. They wouldn't have helped in conveying the grandeur of this place.

anticipation is making me wait

8"x10" oil/linen birch panel

Two new pieces that I dug out of my head and heart. The top one is from observation the bottom one is channeling cows yet again from the depths of my memory.

I've been busy framing for the new season that starts in Richmond VA. first week in may. The collection is coming together nicely.

Thick paint

14"x11" oil/linen birch panel
After a winter that never was it still felt like the "off season". With shows approaching I decided to lay some thick paint with the knife. A ressurection of sorts I suppose. The brushes will reappear. I just needed that feeling of knife work.

morning fog

so here is a new 36x48. I've attached a 2 foot section of lattice wood to a 3" wide brush. It gives me the same looseness as a 1" brush on a small (6") panel. I like loose. This piece was done mostly with this rig. I did throw in some 2" brush strokes. Been very busy organizing shows and schedules. It looks to be a promising year with some new venues being added to my schedule. Looking forward to hitting the road!
