Hal's Garage

This morning a friend and I painted a picturesque old gas station that we had been wanting to paint for months. Hal's Garage is on the west side of Fayette, a small town 30 some miles west of Toledo.

Custom Beach Painting

A woman commissioned me recently to create a painting of her family on vacation. Three of the people were actually in the reference photo but I used some artistic license to add the others.

Port Clyde, Maine

Another view of the harbor in the afternoon from a different vantage point. Notice how the atmosphere is blue in the morning when the sun is weaker and there is moisture in the air. As the day warms the water molecules disappear and the air becomes clearer.

1940 Dodge Coupe

I painted a picture of my friend's husband's car this morning. It was a wonderful day to be out painting. Cool and sunny with a nice breeze. September is a great month to paint en plein air.
