Boats In Scotland - Oil Painting

Back in the mid-1980s I was on a business trip in Scotland. After a meeting in Edinburgh one day we decided to drive around Scotland. After having dinner at a small fishing village we passed this harbor scene. It was about 10pm yet it was still quite bright. Scotland is further north than you might think. It was getting darker when we passed the St Andrews golf course.
This is an 18X24 painting based on photographs I made that day.

It has been a long time since I painted a watercolor. This is based on a photograph I took last summer of the North Falls at Silver Falls State Park near Silverton, OR.

Enchanted Forest - Oil Painting

I just completed this 20"X24" painting for the owner of the house in the painting located just north of Corvallis. Of course I made a few adjustments in order to better represent my vision of the property.

Whooo Me - Barred Owl Oil Painting

This is my latest Oil Painting (9X12) which is a study for a later larger piece. It is based on a B&W photo I took in 1971 at a children's zoo in Kansas City.
