Back to the Chicken Coops

Afternoon Coops 8 x 10

Oil / Panel

Still painting at Spice Acres, I just can't get over that farm. So they continue to move the coops around the farm. This might be my favorite place so far. The afternoon light and shadows danced across the grass and created an agrarian picture to paint. 
I hope you all are enjoying the autumnal colors!

Summer Paintings

Wolf Creek Morning

I painted this back in July on one of those hot days we were having back then.
It certainly was a hot summer and I'm looking forward to a change in temperature and landscape as the autumnal colors begin to show.
I hope you enjoy the coming new season.

Plated Landscapes at Spice Acres

Wildflower Path 

10 x 10, Oil


It was another beautiful evening at the Spice Acres Plated Landscapes!
While guests strolled around Spice Acres listening to live music, noshing on delicious starters and drinking boutique cocktails, I was busy painting this pathway as the sun began to set. What better way is there to spend a summer evening?
