"One Apple Fritter Please" $80
The woods was a perfect setting for this fall festival. The sun shining down through the tall trees was inspiration enough for me. 6"X6" oil on primed masonite artboard. Johnny Appleseed Fall Festival, Ft. Wayne, IN

This amazing garden is at the home of a nice amish family that allowed myself and two artist friends to paint recently. The same location that I painted the apple orchard and posted on 9/24. This painting is 6"x6" oil on primed masonite board.

There is nothing like standing among the buzzing bees in an apple orchard out in the country. The morning sun warming the cool fall air. It was so peaceful. I hope those same feelings are felt when viewing this little painting. The holiday season is around the corner and what a special gift these small original oil paintings would make...you don't even need to frame it, just pop it into a gift bag with a mini easel(under $5 at Michaels)

Another summer nears the end. A fun memory of spitting watermelon seeds on a hot summer day was just the inspiration for this painting. The sun was dappled by the nearby apple tree. The kids were squeezing the last bit of summer out with friends before school started. 6"x6" oil on primed masonite.

Not far from my home are some Amish communities. It is the next thing to time travel when I drive into these little towns. I met a friend in Grabill for some plein air painting. So peaceful, quiet and pure. When driving home after painting, I went by this field with these large horses huddled together. They looked like they were in football formation. It is football season! Anyway, I loved the gray, rainy atmoshpere and how it effected the landscape and these creatures. This painting is 6"X6" on primed masonite art board.

It feels good to get out painting again. It was a cloudy day with the threat of rain, not my favorite conditions. However, it made for an awesome atmosphere as this train rolled in next to the granary. This available painting is 6"x6" oil on primed masonite artist board.

Sometimes after living with a painting for a few days, something about it nags at you and you realize some changes may be needed. Just a few tweaks and somtimes a major overhaul. Thankfully not the latter on this one, but now, I feel better when I look at this painting. 6"x6" oil on primed masonite. Silverton, Colorado.

This is a portion of an 11" x 14" piece. These cowboys were taking a team of mules and lots of camping gear down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. My family and I were hiking a part of the trails when this caravan approaced us.
