Urban Cloud Mass

A studio painting done at Artists of Grace and completed at home. This was done from a photo I took of a Summer storm coming in from the West.

Dad's Flowers

Painted at Artists of Grace awhile ago, I just brought it home recently. It was on display in the Grace Gallery. It is a studio painting of oil on stretched canvas. It was painted from a photo of iris from my garden along with some flowers from my Dad's funeral. I brought the iris in and they had been damaged by a storm. I though I would paint the darkness and damage related to feelings about losing my parents, but as I painted it turned into a painting of beauty and the idea that Jesus said In my Father's House are many mansions . . . I go to prepare a place for you. The light in the background is a road forward.

Jacob the Bard

This is a fantasy oriented oil painting on stretched canvas. I finished this a while ago at Artists of Grace, but I am running behind on posting. Summer yard work seems to be taking up my time this year. I have more work finished that I have not photographed nor posted.
