'The Garage'

12" x 16"
Oil on Canvas Panel
Not for Sale

There's a half-empty beer on the work-bench.  Drive by Truckers on the radio. He's working on something.  Someone sits in a folding chair, and the German Shepard watches close by.  Right now, it's summer, but it could happen any time.   Come on in. No need for TV.

Valley Visions

12" x 16" oil on canvas panel

My first year of teaching didn't leave a lot of time for painting.  However, I did manage to squeeze in a couple of paintings just before/during winter break.

Cedar trees with sunlight on them look warm no matter what time of year.  This is sort of how I picture the Shenandoah Valley in the middle of winter. I've had this image of cedar trees at sunset in the Valley in my mind for a while.  I'm not sure this is exactly what I had envisioned, but I like the way it turned out.
