Blues

5x7 on canvas board
I have been working on quite a few landscape painting. It was an enjoyable switch to paint the latest challenge for the Different Strokes from Different Folks. I cropped the image down fairly close to get some recognizable detail in the face. I purposely left out detail in the background to bring more attention to the character.

Cat 637

8x10 on canvas board
I gave this painting as a gift to my brother in law who worked many years for Caterpillar Tractor. The view into the cab is my favorite part of this painting and the most challenging part to paint. Little boys always have a fascination with tractors and big earth moving equipment.... and most of us never grow out of it!

Beach Boy

5x7 on canvas board
This little boy is so cute. He reminds me of my son when he was that age. The painting was done from a photo that I took mid morning at the beach.
