Mystery of the Pond
36 x 24 Oil on Canvas
From the morning walk to the pond. Still working on its mystery, but well on the way.
From my favourite road. Mountainview. This paitning was started in 2021, and finally got to where I wanted the light this week! You could just feel the cool of the day that was hidden deep in those trees, even on the hottest day.

From the Garden, a little something different. The left almost there, then the right, with another several hours of work, slight variations in colour, lighting and details.

30" x 40" Oil on Canvas
From the same day as Cloud Waves, now at Sunset. One specific day can absolutely have the most defined lighting!
Bottom photo, first layers, Middle photo, more finishing layers building the waves in the light , Top photo, the Tree in my initial reference finally makes it to the canvas. Henry. From Charleston Sideroad! Final touches with the building of flight, and some refining in the foreground. What a show Henry enjoyed!
Unbelievable cloud formation from a storm in June.
Top image is the first stage of blocking in shapes with darks and lights, the bottom is the current progression with refinements and softening of the light
