This has been a year of small paintings. How small can I get them and still have them be paintings? I wanted to try.

It started to rain, and everyone was hurrying to cover up and secure. I love the kind of light that comes just before a rain. I got wet, and finished in the car.

The Behling family very kindly let me set up in  their area at the Walworth County Fair. The cows move constantly. Sometimes they stand, sometimes they sit. Sometimes they are taken out to be washed and groomed. They are a kalidoscope!

During the winter of 20-21, I made a number of paintings based on a set up with pineapples and baking equipment. Here we have pairs of pineapples.

Red House in Winter

Artist’s Note:  This is a view, done from my studio window. Snow is both positive and negative, and is difficult to paint because it is whiter than the white of the canvas. The only way to get the illusion of more whiteness is  to provide enough contrast. The two trees, the red house, and the pale distance provide that comparison.

From a series of window paintings done during the winter. Snow transforms everything in a magical way. I wanted the painting to look as "cold" as I was feeling.

I worked on this "almost nocturne" a long time, trying to simplify the house enough to emphasize the light behind.

It's fall, the light is beautiful and the long road travels into the far distance.
