Cedar Creek Spring

Did this one early this afternoon in Cedar Creek, Cumberland County, Kentucky. The sun was high overhead, and I didn't bring my umbrella, so I had problems trying to keep the sun off my palette. I think it worked out okay though. Including the beginning, part of the block-in, the finish, and one of my paint box modified to carry canvas and panels with parts from a french easel.

Daughter sketch

Here's a quick 12" x 9" charcoal sketch I did this morning before going to work. It's on a toned linen panel, in the hopes of adding paint to it later today.

The Bistro, Bowling Green, Kentucky

I know it's been a couple of weeks since I posted anything, please forgive me. Lots of things going on these days.

This small one is the start of a Bowling Green, Kentucky series I'm planning that will encompass my palette knife work along with the bright underpainting, using Google Street View as reference. If you haven't seen or read anything about my use of Street View HERE is a link to my website, specifically the Press section. You can also peruse the website to see all the Street View paintings I done so far. I really do love painting these small ones with the knife.

I don't plan on doing any certain types of businesses or houses in Bowling Green. Just whatever catches my eye. These will be available for purchase at the time of posting here on this blog. They will eventually make it to the website, but that may take a few days as the series progresses. If you are interested in purchasing just let me know. They are 5" x 7", oil on canvas panel, palette knife, unframed, and are $200 each.

If you'd like a similar style of painting of a view you've found on Street View, perhaps your home, or a past home or business location, just let me know. I'm sure we can do business together. It usually takes about a week for the painting to dry enough to be safely shipped.

Dale Hollow Overlook

Painted this one at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park today. Stood on the deck of the restaurant. Even though it was a gorgeous day today, it was still too cool to seat people outside, so I had the deck to myself.

Here's a larger one I finished up tonight. I think it's finished. Probably not though. There's a couple of areas I think I'll look at later. But pretty satisfied overall at this point.

I'm adding a few detail shots as it's hard to get a good pic of the whole thing in it's wide format.
