SOLD - Fall in the Fen

Here's my last (probably) plein air piece of the year. It's a 10" x 8" oil on canvas I call Autumn Colors. It's actually the 11th in a series I've done at the Woodman Fen in Dayton. It's amazing to think that this lovely, preserved fen (semi-wetland) is tucked into an urban neighborhood off Patterson and Woodman. Enjoy!

SOLD - Dogwood Pond

Here's a little 8" x 10" oil on canvas I painted recently at Hills and Dales park in Kettering. The colors and reflections were amazing, and inspiring. I've been calling the piece "Autumn, Dogwood Pond." Enjoy.

Sedum House

Here's a little 8" x 6" oil on canvas I painted also out at Wegerzyn Gardens in Dayton. It's in their children's garden area. The whole roof is covered with living, growing sedum, so I just call it Sedum House. Enjoy!

Willow Maze

Here's a little one I painted recently of the cool, giant sculpture out at Wegerzyn Gardens in Dayton. The sculpture was created completely from willow seedlings harvested from (an overabundance at) the Engelwood Dam area north of Dayton. The piece here is a 6" x 8" oil on panel I'm calling Willow Maze, and I'm actually painting it from inside the sculpture looking out. (You can catch a peek of the sculpture in the preceding painting too). Enjoy!

Painting Wegerzyn Gardens

Here's a new one I finished a couple of days ago. I painted it in the lovely back courtyard of Wegerzyn Gardens in Dayton. It's an 10" x 8" oil on canvas I've been calling Courtyard Garden. Enjoy.
