HILLS OF JACKSON

“Hills of Jackson” was a scene I returned to several times. The starkness of the adjacent hills near the wooded lake area really was a contrast. This day was cloudy and overcast and the light breaking through to the nearby rocky hill captured my interest. Although the lake was teeming with swans and ducks this day, I felt like avoiding any detail that would detract from the light effect of the moment.

FRESH AIR

 Fresh Air” is one of a series of still life paintings I have been working on during the last several months along with a few new unposted landscapes.  The old pipe in the painting was given to me by my wife. She saw it in an antique store and thought I could add it to my still props. I actually did hang the pipe over the “Fresh Air” paper you see in the picture. It hung there unnoticed for about two years. One day recently, I spun around in my chair and finally noticing the pipe for the first time as a  piece of art, I was off and running doing some still life painting again. I have painted another four still life paintings since Fresh Air. I will post some of them shortly.
