little bits...

I've been working on  a variety of projects the past few weeks so I thought I would give you a taste of whats been cooking.  Each photo is a small section of the actual paintings, leaving something for the imagination. 

The top photo is a portrait commission, in oil, in progress.  A nice contrast to the other work going on in the studio. 

The following three paintings are landscapes, in progress, for a show that opens at the begining April.   They are a bit moody but not so dark feeling as they appear above. 

At the same time, I have been trying to post new work in my Etsy shops so they are not totally toast.
 I could go on but I think I'll go make soup instead.

A Great Pyramid

In my son's social studies class they are learning about ancient Egypt. 
Last week they spent their class outside working on building a to scale version of one of the Great snow.  so cool!
