Diane and Mini



D and Kitty were relaxing on the chaise lounge Wednesday night before American Idol. Diane was reading the sequel to Gone with the Wind and Mini was draped over the quilt licking her paws. Kitty just got her cat treats and was ready to relax. I was drawing and drinking coffee until American Idol came on.

Nickel Crypt at Mt Olivet oil *SOLD*


This was painted 9 years ago almost to the day. It was a cold day and a little windy so I finished it at home. As plein air goes, I am not hard core. Mt Olivet Cemetery in Nashville is a pretty cool place as graveyards go. Lot's of interesting monuments and sculpture. One guy's tomb looks like Napoleon's. Another is all done up like a Greek temple. The old Nashville City Cemetery is interesting as well. I have done a few pencil sketches there.

Tangerines, Juice and Shell (Oil 9/12)


I did this way back in 94. I thought about it today when I went to the store to get some OJ. It has about doubled in price since the big freeze. I came home without juice needless to say. I may have to give up OJ until the next crop. If milk doubled in price I would be up the creek. I need my milk. Email me the title if interested in buying.

Landscape (Acrylic 5/7) $60


This is from imagination. I drew a litle thumbnail in my pad and figured it would make a neat little painting so I painted it on panel with the Goldens. Email me the title if interested in buying.

Canajoharie Market (Acrylic 5/7 panel) *SOLD*


This is based on my pencil sketch down the page of the Smoker's Friend market in Canajoharie NY. I don't smoke but I purchased a cup of coffee there. Nice folks.

House near Centertown TN (Pencil)


This house has it all. A punching bag hanging on the porch with a sofa to sit on and drink beer when you get tired of punching. It also features chickens in the yard.

Di in the Hood (Oil 6/8) $75 *Sold*


Diane & I were in downtown Nashville on a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon. We were not in the 'hood, but she was in the hood.

Mountain Stream (Acrylic 11/14) $80


This is outside Sylva NC. This Sylva, Waynesville area is one of my favorite places. My friend Roy and his wife Julia live in Waynesville. Check out his book "When Opposites Dance". I drew the pictures in it.

Old shed sketch


Old shed out in the country.

Old House


Old abondoned house I remember seeing a long time ago in the mountains. Might as well do a watercolor of it.
