Gloomy Days Of Autumn

         "Gloomy Days Of Autumn"
                        Oil 6" x 8"

I wanted to practice on the colors of the trees. It was raining and I panted this from inside of my car. I also wanted to capture the distance of the scene. This was a fun study for me. It was painted at Forest Park in Noblesville Indiana.

Rainy Stroll In The Park

          "Rainy Stroll In The Park"
                  Oil 8" x 8"

I would have called this a plein air painting, but it was done from the back of my SUV. It was raining and the wind was blowing. I thought it would be best if I stayed out of the elements. 

I spend a lot of time at the park. The view was calling me to paint it while visiting Forest Park in Noblesville Indiana.

Coffee Or Tea

                 "Coffee Or Tea"
                    Plein Air 
                      Oil 14" x 11"

My friend Lesley Haflich and I were painting downtown Noblesville. This is the Noble Coffee and Tea Company located on Logan Street. I was almost done with this painting when I had to leave for work. 

I returned back to the site to finish the painting after I was done with work. While I was painting channel 13 WTHR was on the same corner interviewing people. They asked if they could film me painting. I told them they could. I thought "how cool is this"! When they were done filming me the anchor man asked me if I vote? I told him yes. He then asked if they could interview me about "If I'm elected I will not serve". He wanted my thoughts on this. I told him my opinion on the matter. During the whole interview he talked about me being Noblesville local artist and they showed me painting on the 6pm news. 

This was a great day. I think of myself being a little lucky that day. I just happen to be in the right place at the right time. I think now I should have bought a lottery ticket, maybe I could of won the big one!

                  "Field Of Gold"

This painting was done off of Howe road in Noblesville Indiana. I have loved this view for many years of the soybeans  golden color. 

I made a few changes to the painting by moving the trees to make it more interesting. I didn't want the new houses in the painting. I wanted it to be viewed as if the subdivision hadn't been built yet.
