Quisling Clinic. Sold. 8×10 inches, oil on panel. This building is all curves! It’s actually an apartment building now. As I stood near the curb with my umbrella up on a hot day, kids were piling off buses next to me, coming back from summer church camp. I love to do these kinds of skies.
N. Pinckney St. $60. 8×10 inches, oil on panel. After looking at the map, this is actually on Henry St. Anyway, I liked the color on the right and the shadow on the steps.
N. Hamilton St. NFS. 6×8 inches, oil on canvas paper. Over the winter, I painted in my car, using a small “pochade” box, which, when I opened it, had the painting slid into the top and the palette below, with paints and brushes underneath. I was doing this painting toward evening, uneventfully, when the sun… Continue reading Untitled
Luddington Ave. Sold. 8×10 inches, oil on panel. I live on Luddington. Not too many people do. At two blocks, it’s one of Madison’s shortest streets. Right across the street is Lowell School. My neighbors tend to look at me strangely when I’m set up near the curb, staring at their house for a few… Continue reading Untitled
Henry St. Sold. 8×10 inches, oil on panel. I did this picture just after a teacher told me not to be “fussy” and simply state things with a few brush strokes. But I did it anyway in the greenery, which is about the hardest thing for me to paint. This is the site of the… Continue reading Untitled
Yellow Jersey Bicycles. $45. 8×10 inches, oil on panel. Although this may look like an old European plaza, it’s really the parking lot behind Yellow Jersey on State St.!
E. Washington Ave. $45. 8×10 inches, oil on board. (Or just “East Wash” –if you don’t live in Madison). After they did a complete reconstruction of the bridge over the Yahara River, it looked pretty much the same as before from the street. But down below was a huge difference with tunnels for bike paths… Continue reading Untitled
E. Main St. $45. 8×10 inches, oil on board. When I did the picture I was working on “vistas,” views that encompass a whole street into the distance, with buildings, cars, and sometimes people. These are difficult, and I’m still working on getting them right. As I worked, I became attracted to the orange sign… Continue reading Untitled
W. Dayton St. Sold. 8×10 inches, oil on board. I painted this picture about a year ago. It’s the first picture I did where I just followed the shapes of light and shade and didn’t worry too much about making sure I was painting a house or a fence, etc. It’s the backyard of some… Continue reading Untitled
Here you’ll find my paintings with thoughts I had when I was painting or other comments.
