Cold Creek

Oil on Panel

We had a decent snow the other day for Tennessee. 
Today, I ventured out to the creek for a plain-air adventure. 
It was a blast.

Cozumel & Clouds

Oil on Canvas

As the temperatures continue to drop, 
I'm keeping a caribbean state of mind 
with this memory for Cozumel.

Keeping the spring palette for a second day. 
This time, a delicate Tennessee Iris.

11"x14" Oil on Canvas
with Palette Knife

Happy New Year! Since it is the new year, I can now safely share some of my holiday commissions with you. This abstract was commissioned as a gift for a choral director. Simply titled "Anthem" I tried to convey all of the colors and textures one might find in a good choral presentation.

A New Day

8"x10" Oil on Panel
with Palette Knife

This year’s Advent painting depicts the beginning of a new day. The scriptures for this season are full of hope for a new day of justice and salvation. However, this is no soft glow over a dew-filled morning, but rather a saving light breaking through the cold darkness of a world desperately in need of grace.

More than an illustration, this painting is a prayer for the suffering, the homeless and the desperate. It is a reminder that we are not consigned to live in darkness. A new day has indeed come. It keeps dawning over and over.  When we find ourselves in a place where righteousness and justice seem lost in the dark, we have hope. The break of new day will come again.
