Had a painting binge this weekend. The third and final painting from this weekend.

This one was painted on location using my repurposed Altoids tin as a paint box.

Miniature Painting – Close to the Edge

Close to the Edge (2 x 3 inches; oils)

I was able to sneak in a couple of hours of painting today after walking the dog at the park. A miniature oil painting using my repurposed Altoids tin as a paint box. There’s a trail at the back edge of the park with a bench facing an open field. A peaceful place to sit, relax, and paint!


Out of Time

A cloud formation trying to become a thunderstorm, but running out of time. The early evening sun and not much lift in the atmosphere means this cloud will begin to fall apart. Within 45 minutes it had dissipated.

Adding this photo to my reference collection for future paintings.


Abandoned in Potosi

Moleskine Notebook Entry 12

My first Moleskine Notebook sketch since February of 2017. Sketched this abandoned structure while waiting at the dentist office. This sketch was created with watercolor pencils and Sakura ink pens.


After the Storm – May 31, 2018

Some severe weather moved through my area yesterday. Fortunately, the storm intensity had subsided by the time it reached my home. These photos were taken shortly after the initial storm front moved through the area.
