This was a little bit challenging painting. I love the way the street level lighting and cars create a warm glow, against the dark, cooler buildings. I wanted to capture the hustle of the city on an early friday evening.

I spend a lot of time as a vendor at Art Fairs and Festivals. I love the people I meet there. Sometimes it is fun to watch the people walking by. Last year there was a lot of rain. One day, when no one was coming into my booth, I went out in search of possible paintings. I snapped pictures of the people in the rain. These are some fun paintings!

Another Commission. This was a Christmas gift, as a way to remember the Grandmother who has developed dementia. It was a fun challenge to try to capture the personalities of the people. I also enjoyed painting the glass!

This was a commission. The client’s father was retiring from a career working in television broadcasting. I really enjoyed working with the glow on his face from the monitors and lights in the studio. It was a fun painting to do!

I love getting commissions. It is awesome when someone sees my work, loves it, and asks me to do something special for them. This fall I have had a number of commissions. This was the first one. I enjoyed painting this client’s kids walking under umbrellas in the rain.

I love this painting. The gesture of the kids as they romp through the surf. The cool night air. the pink reflected light from the sunset on the cloud. This was a fun painting to do. It is a retirement present for my wife’s co worker. She now gets to spend more time with her grandbabies, doing what they enjoy doing.

Recently, one of the girls we knew well from church married her love in the Las Vegas temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They had both served as missionaries there. It was a special place for them.

We believe that a marriage in our temples seals the couple together for eternity, not just til death. It is wonderful.

I chose to paint the temple with the city of Las Vegas in the background, as a reminder of their times serving the people of Las Vegas, and their future together.

Recently, I was asked to do a painting for a client to celebrate his wedding anniversary. He had been on his honeymoon to Greece. I chose this scene. I love the quiet drama of the sunset over the sea. The warm cool contrast is very interesting as well as the silhouette of the mountains dark against the reflected light of the water.

I love this time of night, when the lights are coming on, but it isn’t quite dark yet.  You get the warm natural evening light, and contrasting artificial spots.

This is a painting which shows the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Indianapolis. Instead of focusing solely on the monument, I have chosen to focus on the life that goes on around it.
