(14X11 oil on canvas panel)
This painting was done from a photo. I simplified the background removing tree reflections on the water.  I enjoyed painting the boys and dog on the back of the shirt.

(16x12  oil on canvas panel)
This one was done from a photo I found at Peggy's cove, when hiking though Nova Scotia on the Google map. The ropes were bright red, green, and yellow nylon. I used my artist licence to change them to old fashioned hemp rope.

Railroad Workers
(9x12 oil on canvas panel) 
This statue is at the San Luis Obispo railroad station and was painted en plein air. The sketch turned out looking fairly good. I worked on getting a good composition and capturing the variation in the colors of the bronze. The buildings in the background were intentionally left out to bring out the statue. Final touch ups were done in my studio.
(12x16 oil on cavas panel)
The reference photo for this painting was one of the many old time photos floating around on the Internet.
