Somehow I landed in Colo Iowa on Google Streetview way back. This old gas station caught my eye and looked pretty cool so I based this painting on it.

I am test driving these Matisse Brand Acrylic paints for Jerry's Artarama. Jerry's gave me the Primary Color Set (Ultramarine, Thalo Blue, Light Red, Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Deep, Light Hansa Yellow, Mars Black and Titanium White plus a Gel Medium and an Impasto Medium. I am mainly a Golden user but I really like these Matisse acrylics a lot.
I kept my palette pretty dense and saturated and they handle well. I am scheduled to give an acrylic demo at Jerry's Artarama in Nashville TN on Saturday June 20. Brush and palette knife. Trying out these DaVinci Pro Panels also. Drop by and say hello, heckle or throw peanuts at me.

Showers moving in while I was walking my dog Lucky Marie. I remembered as much as I could and went up stairs to paint it. This is the hill behind my house.

This Smyrna meadow is near the Sam Davis home in Smyrna Tennessee. I passed by it Friday, did a pencil sketch of the scene and painted this acrylic from it. I remember the rolling clouds and band of light slicing through just right.

Some Mother's Day clouds over some Rutherford County pasture land. I saw these today and made a sketch, then painted it when I got home. A mix of thick palette knife and brush work.

This is Big Ben's BBQ in Chattanooga TN on a summer afternoon. I painted this several years ago. You know Ben's BBQ is the best!

A field ready to plant this season's crop right here in the La Vergne and Smyrna Tennessee area. Corn? Soybeans? As always, I like the late afternoon light slashing through the shadow area. Mostly palette knife work on this acrylic.
