Large Paintings

Sorry for not posting, people keep buying paintings from me and I can't keep up. No it is not winter anymore in Iowa. Both are large paintings. The high horizon near where I live and the other across the river near Waukon,Iowa.

It is still Winter in Iowa too apparently

Sometimes I like finding random things. Okay, usually I like finding random things. I am lucky when I am in the mood to go with it. Why is there an old passenger car and caboose in this field? Who knows. And I like, when I am able to let myself go enough, even if things are still very detailed, when the painting becomes ramdon and abstract.

Other than that Christmas miracle of a little snow, it has been warmer and foggy all month. In fact there has only been about 15 hours of sun the entire month. This is what that looks like.

White Christmas

I couldn't help but be inspired this morning by the snow. This is a view from the street I live on. I wanted to thank everyone again who has supported me. I really feel satisfied and happy with things, hopefully though all the things I have done has made me a better person. I know I am very very fortunate and many people don't get that in life. So thank you all, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

I can't believe this shit

I set my personal record for earliest time going ice fishing today, Nov. 15. Ridiculous. I just painted this from the boat landing. A bizarre scene of a half frozen river at dusk in the snow. The were fifteen or so boatfuls of duck hunters getting their boats out of the water(what's left of it)as I sat in my van looking north to a frozen bay that I just walked out on. The Stoddard Bay channel is what is snaking its' way though the painting.

Thank you

I want to thank everyone for supporting me again this year. That isn't bullshit either. I realize I live a special life, but also that I have a duty to make the most of my talents. There isn't much doubt I am giving it my best effort. Here are a few paintings from the last couple months.
