Clear Skies and Sunshine on a Bright Autumn Day

This painting was included in 2016: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail. Autumn along the trail is overwhelming with all the colors in the mix of trees and brush in the woods and on the hills. I took this photo years ago and finally painted it. So rich in detail, sun […]

Before we begin, let me note that this is a 2014 CALENDAR. Why am I trying to sell you a 2014 calendar? Because it was printed so that each image in the calendar is of framing quality. The calendar is outdated, but the 14 pieces of artwork will never go out of date, and if […]
