The Old Pump

Just a quick note, and a pic this morning of The Old Pump, work in progress, 18×24 acrylic on linen

I got up at 6 intending to put a few more rabbits in the freezer, but the yellowjackets were already flying, so will have to get up even earlier and do that tomorrow. In the meantime I’m going to paint!

Arizona Sunset

OK, sat in front of my easel too long today to get out and get good picks of the fruit trees, but I did take some good ones of the sunset a couple of nights ago. So here you go.

More of The Old Pump

Well this painting is coming right along, in between working and trying to muck out my studio room!

And here isĀ  a close up for you

I’ll have to get out and take some pics in my yard later today. The plum tree is loaded and the apple tree has set fruit so thick I’m having to thin them out for the first time ever!

The Old Pump

This old well pump is actually in my mom’s front yard, all over grown at the moment with flowering spearmint, parsley and hollyhocks. Here’s the real pic..

And here is the painting I am doing from it:

As you can see I took a lot of artistic license! This one is 18×24 inches, acrylic on linen

I’m going to be adding in some hollyhocks up close around the pump, but I’m also thinking of adding a bird sitting on the faucet part….maybe a cardinal or maybe a chicken!


Well here is “Yellow Iris”, all finished.

“Yellow Iris” is available. You can see more details at my new fine art website:
