Summer of 48

Came upon this classic automobile in front of St, Brendan's Church in Keene, NY. I was not only attracted by the subject but by how the sky was reflected in the black of the paint. I got to mix my blacks and cerulean blues!  I began with a sharply delineated drawing, mapping out color shapes then a quick underpainting in acrylics , finishing off in oils.  . 12x12in oil

Augies' Village ( Lost Dog)

I came upon this wonderful Christmas toy village made of wooden blocks at a friends house. It was lit up by a table lamp. I was intrigued by the shadows as if it was a real village, so real that I added my friends dog, Augie. 21x21in.charcoal
