Mount Cherish

This was my first painting with an actual audience. They sat there, looking at me, judging me, having fun with me.  It was a great time. I wouldn't have it any other way. It was super fun. I would do it again anytime. By the way, I keep hearing about…

Lazy Stream

Christy and I got back to the canvas last night. This time, we painted a small stream snaking its way across the landscape. By the way, my paintings are for sale. If you want one, and live in Idaho Falls, I'll deliver it to you free of charge. Also, I…

Beyond The Trail

This painting was given its name by Kim Hawkes after I posted an image of it on Facebook and challenged my followers to name it. Kim's entry got the most "likes" and now this painting has a fitting name - Beyond The Trail. This painting is one of my favorites to do…

Glacier Lake

I'm pretty sure glaciers are pretty awe inspiring when you see one up close. This is how I imagine one would look when hiking through the Alaskan wilderness. Slow moving chunks of ice, carving their way through the landscape. Leaving behind new geographic features and redrawing boundaries, this glacier is a…

Campfire

Finally, a Black Gesso painting. This painting was particularly challenging because there isn't a wet coating of a liquid white/black with which to work on. This painting is very wet and was difficult to get a good picture of. I am excited to see how it turns out once it…

Twin Falls

This is called Twin Falls. No, it's not the city in Idaho. This is yet another painting based off the highly popular Bob Ross television show. By the way, did you hear that Bob Ross won the 2017 Shorty Award for Twitch Streamer of the Year! Congrats, Bob! [caption id="attachment_235"…

Ocean Sunset

Today Christy and I did another Bob Ross painting called Ocean Sunset. This one was a bit more challenging as water is harder to paint than you think. It was fun, however. Compared to the last ones I completed, this one has decidedly less plant life in it and more…

Barnyard Disaster

Let's say you hired me to build you a barn. And this is what you got. There is a good chance you'd want your money back. LOL! Anyways, it is obvious that I need to grasp the concept of perspective and dimension. Oh well. I never said I was an…

Summertime

Summertime is just around the corner and I'm in a summertime mood. I learned a new way to cut in the waterline that makes it look as though there is movement. Also, I'm getting quite a bit better mixing my Magic White to highlight trees and bushes. All in all,…

Unnamed 3

This is my 3rd freehand attempt to see where I need more practice. And that practice needs to be using a darker color as the backing of my background trees and bushes. What I really need to do is attend a real painting class where I learn how to mix…
