Info About This Piece,
We found this pretty blue sailboat, crowded in with many other boats in winter dry dock at the Boulder Marina on Carlyle Lake. I had gone there with several other artists from the Missouri Plein Air Painters' Association to do some paintings. We saw hundreds of suitable scenes at this location, and I finally selected Miss Scarlet because of her placement , trim condition and bright colors  (I don't know why "Miss Scarlet " is blue). It was a bright Fall day with intermittent sunshine and warm temperatures -ideal conditions for out door painting.

Info About This Piece,
I spotted this small tugboat on the Mississippi River above Alton, Illinois. There were many old tugs awaiting salvage in this area. I could see that the Darrell had once been a handsome working boat and appeared to be only recently retired. I pulled off the highway and proceeded to paint this appealing scene.

Info About This Piece,
This trim little sailboat was in dry dock at the Boulder Marina on Carlyle Lake. The red and green color combination seemed most appropriate with the approaching Christmas Holidays. It was an ideal December day with little wind, a few fluffy clouds, intermittent sunshine and surprisingly mild temperatures. I enjoyed a good day of plein air painting.

Info About This Piece,
I found this bright yellow sailboat docked at the Boulder Marina on Carlyle Lake, and noted that she was appropriately named the "Dandy Lion" with matching color. She was floating at anchor in the Marina and I liked the looks of her trim condition, bright colors and reflections in the water. It was an ideal day for painting out of doors on location. Light breezes, plenty of sunshine and temperatures reaching a high of around 50 degrees.

Info About This Piece,
This fisherman’s motor boat was tied up on the bank of the Missouri River while the owners went into town for dinner. I happened on this scene while on a paint-out with a group of artists in Hermann, Missouri. It was a beautiful day and I had ample time to paint this picture as it seems the fishermen were in no hurry to return to work.

Info About This Piece,
This plein air painting of a working barge on the Mississippi River was made in the company of several other artists from the Missouri Plein Air Painter's Association. It was a raw Fall day with heavy rain and gusting winds, so for protection from these elements, we set up our easels beneath the Poplar Street Bridge. While we painted, a TV news crew from Channel 5  stopped by to capture the scene (they admitted to having a slow day), but much to our surprise, we appeared on the evening news. They added some interviews  with comments about the cultural diversity (and insanity of artists) to be found in St. Louis . This painting was made looking downstream from the bridge.

The crew of this small tugboat was getting ready to go to work on the Mississippi River above Alton, Illinois when my son, Shawn and I drove by.

Info About This Piece,
In April 2005, I went on fishing trip to Stockton Lake, Missouri with family and friends. Early one morning my son, Shawn and I went down to the dock area to paint this scene. While we set up, a big black dog trotted over with a stick in his mouth. Clearly, he wanted to play, so we threw the stick in the lake and he joyfully retrieved it. This went on for some time until the dog finally decided it was time to rest. Then we got down to serious painting. It was a great morning and this picture captures some of the special beauty of that time and place.

Info About This Piece,
This old tugboat is no longer in service and has been retired to a secluded mooring along the Mississippi River near Alton, Illinois. Although beginning to show signs of rust and neglect, she still retains an attitude of strength and pride, as if remembering her many years of service along the river. Great piles of driftwood have gathered in the sheltered cove created by this mooring. My son Shawn and I painted individual versions of this scene on a bright Spring morning.
