Small Winter Painting

Winter– Honerlaw Farm 2
8" x 10", Oil on Canvas Panel

A second view of the Honerlaw farm, just outside Olde West Chester, Ohio. Straddling West Chester Road, this farm lends itself to nearly monochrome portraits when cloaked in Winter's snows.

New Pond Painting

Reserves Park– Lotus 11
36" x 24", Oil on Canvas

A new companion piece for RP– Lotus 9, this painting can be displayed as part of a pair. Just past their peak, the pond in late June/early July still has many blossoms, but the seed pods are turning brown and will soon dry enough to drop their cargo.

Winter Nocturne

Sunset Over the Basin
8" x 10", Oil on Canvas Panel

Winter skies present some striking colors, especially at sunset. The hillsides that ring the city basin of Cincinnati present excellent vantage points to portray the urban landscape against Mother Nature's display.
