Last month, I did a commission for a collector who wanted a painting similar to one I had done previously. He requested a few alterations to the original and a smaller size. I was happy to give it a go. I liked his finished painting so much that I altered the original.

I wish I knew who first said that a painting isn’t finished until it is sold.  That is so totally true.  If you know, please leave a comment!

I’m gearing up to do a few more larger landscape paintings so needed to do some studies.  This is the first one.

Philomath Open Studios – Thank you to all of you who came out to see my work in my studio during this year’s Philomath Open Studios!  This is the painting I was working on during the second weekend.

This painting is a study for a larger one that I am doing.  The form factor is going to be different so I did a sketch for the study, the small painting and another sketch for the large one.  I’m painting the large one right now.

Below are the sketches for both paintings.  You might notice that I don’t adhere to my original sketch but make changes as I move through the painting process.  Painting the small one helps me to come to some decisions before I do a larger one and hopefully waste less paint!

Another painting started on site at Boston Mills State Heritage Site in Shedd, OR.  I stood on the road bridge to get this scene and was amazed at how much traffic there was on this small country road.

I think I might create a large painting from this one.

This is a Caradon painting (which is a collaboration between myself and a good friend, Donna Beverly).  We each take turns working on the canvas, until we both decide it is finished.  We sign them “Caradon.”  This name is a combination of the first part of each our names.  Although we haven’t been doing a lot of these collaborative works lately we just finished this one.

Donna and some of her students are  having a show called “Dancing Paintbrushes” at the Benton County Museum in Philomath, Oregon from October 7 to November 26, 2011.   She wanted to include some of the Caradon pieces in the show.

This painting was started on site in Newport, Oregon looking towards the Yaquina Bay Bridge and west to the Pacific Ocean.

In other news:  Kathy’s Needleworks has licensed some of my paintings to print on needlework canvas.  I thought the idea sounded like fun and even bought one for myself to try (I’ll try and post the final result … but it’ll be a while!).  If you missed purchasing that favorite image now is your chance to put your own flair on it.   Check it out.
