Keeper of the Woods

Joe Garcia and I are having a show at Mountain Trails Gallery in Sedona, Arizona. Titled, Birds of a Feather, the exhibition features our bird paintings.  Between us, we'll have more than thirty new paintings.  These are a few of the oils that will be featured at the gallery exhibition which will be opening Friday, October 7th from 5 - 8 pm.  I hope to see you there!

This is a new oil that will be exhibited at one of the shows I'm doing in November.  I had fun painting this one...I like the simplicity of it.

This is a new piece titled, 'The Slow Lane'.  It will be one of about 14 pieces that I'll be exhibiting at Art for the Sangres in Westcliffe, Colorado, September 23 & 24th, 2016.

Across the Bay

This piece is fresh off the easel. It's a 30" x 30" oil on Ampersand 2" deep cradleboard. Unframed, it gives the painting a more contemporary feel which is what I'm aiming for. The birds are New Zealand pied stilts; a very common bird in my part of New Zealand.

This painting will stay in New Zealand and can be seen at the Opua Gallery on the wharf in Opua.
