graveyard final?

I made some changes to my previous composition and threw in some values. I would like comments and critiques on this if anyone has any. This will be painted as the sun is setting.

2 mas

This is the final composition for a painting I am about to start. Working on a color study now and I should start the final in a couple of days. Painted in Hollywood Cemetery.

This one was started back in February when Richmond got about 8 inches of snow. I managed to stop myself from playing in it for long enough to paint.

"Snow at the Park"
9 x 12

"Marshland With Buildings"
10.25 x 26.75

I've been busy lately, which is why the blog has been neglected. I've been painting a lot but it seems like I put off photographing my work until it is absolutely necessary.

"Still Life With Zephyr Lilies"

"Rose of Sharon"

"Rose on a Windowsill"

expect another update soon.

"Two Barns" - This painting was done about 6 months ago.

These paintings are a small portion of the work I've done in the last 3 months.

"Flowers in a Window"


"Assorted Roses" - This one was heavily influenced by Richard Schmid (  I have been reading his book Alla Prima and I think it has really helped my work.

"Lying Rose"

I have a bunch of other paintings I need to get photographed in the next few weeks, so expect an update soon.
