Field House Revisited

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches - Click Here to Bid

I found this sitting in the back hallway, and something made me want to give it another go. I like the strong contrast in the cast shadows, but I knew they really didn't look like that.

So I warmed up the parts of the building and roof that were in direct sunlight, and lightened the blue shadows a bit, also noting that the shadows on the front of the building were lighter than the shadows on the left. Those palms are still terrible, and it ain't a great composition, but it was fun playing with levels.

Early Vineyard

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 4 inches - Click Here to Bid

This is from a shot I took earlier this Spring. The vines themselves are mere stems, but all the mustard is shooting up and filling the vineyard with yellow.

This is also my submission to this weeks Vineyard Challenge, at Daily Paintworks. Go have a look at all the other great paintings there.

Another view of the park, and again no blue. Just the Zorn palette of black, yellow, red and white. Temporarily not for sale, because this is going to be in the June show.

South Van Ness

Acrylic on Panel - 11 x 14 inches - Sold

This is a commission piece that has been sitting around here half finished for far too long. It all started out just fine, but once I started picking at the things that bugged me, it seemed like there was no end to it. So, I let it rest for a while, and then just pushed on through.
