This is a studio work in progress, 20"x30" gallery wrap, oil on linen canvas. I was planning to go over this with more texture, but it's kind of growing on me. Sometimes you just have to let things be.

Road Lines Rows

Encaustic on panel
I'm always searching for techniques to experiment with. I've been a fan of encaustic, hot wax painting, for years. It's very different from applying oil paint to a canvas. The wax dries on contact, so you must be diligent. On the other hand, it's easy to manipulate and glaze. The technique reminds me somewhat of gouache.

Sorghum Field

oil on linen canvas
This is a painting I just completed in the studio. I'm really experimenting with deconstructing the image and using cold wax medium to create impasto effects.

House On The Hill

oil on linen panel
I painted this in Coupland, Texas. Seems to be calling me of late. I found another Native American scraper. The last time I was there, I found a scraper and arrowhead. I was really drawn to the vibrant golds of the grain crops and the approaching storm.
