The Old Homeplace completed 11/10/09

This painting was different for me in that it's the first of many to be painted on the surface that Richard Schmid recommends. It's a double primed Belgian linen canvas taped to a piece of masonite to be stretched later (should the painting be a success). I like how it turned out ... so, I'll be stretching it soon. It's 14" x 11" in size.

Brisk Morning completed 12/15/08

This painting is an attempt to loosen up my style a bit. I enjoy working on the slick masonite surface. It helps to show the brushstrokes better and to give a more spontaneous feel to the painting. The size is 12" x 9".
