Nickel Tomb oil (oil 8/10) *SOLD*


This was painted 9 years ago. I remember 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.

Thomas Kinkade vs Godzilla *SOLD* ;-) yea..

This Kinkade piece needed something. So I added Godzilla and a giant moth. I hear he uses maple syrup for his painting medium with high fructose corn syrup added for extra sweetness. ( I liked his plein air book.) Price $10,000,495.99 + Free Shipping

Old Abandoned Home (Acrylic 6/8) $60


An old abandoned home in Viola TN.

Shenandoah Scene (acrylic 6/8) $70


Di and I drove up to Upstate NY via I-81 the week of Halloween. It took us through Virginia's Shenandoah valley. I snapped a few shots with the digicam at about 70 mph of some morning mountains. I like to drive through the mountains and look down in a valley and see a little town through the trees. I then have to head down to check it out and a grab a cup of joe. If I am lucky there is a place featuring local art.

Barn and Graveyard (watercolor 6/4) *SOLD


I painted this from my pencil sketch and memory. One grave said 1887 and the others were too worn to read. These old graveyards are deteriorating fast as well as the old barns. The old barns are helped in their passing by bulldozers! When these farms are passed down to the heirs, they usually get sold because folks cannot afford the inheritance taxes owed to THE MAN. ;-P
