Info About This Piece,
This small cabin provides an interesting subject for painting. It is located in the Shaw Nature Reserve near Gray's Summit in Missouri. I liked this scene for it's' contrasting elements of highlight and shadow,  warm tones against cool colors, and straight architectural lines softened by surrounding masses of vegetation. The November sun began to shine by noon melting the morning frost and illuminating a welcoming pathway to the cabin door.

Info About This Piece,
I painted this farmstead near Columbia, Illinois in the company of several other artists. It was a cool Spring morning and passing clouds cast changing patterns of sunlight and shadow over the fields, The remnants of last year’s corn crop were still in evidence, however bustling activity around the farm suggested that these fields would soon be reworked and planted.

Info About This Piece,
This painting was done during a plein air event called a "Quick-Draw" Competition because artists were given just three hours  to locate their scene, get it painted, and deliver their completed work to the judges. I found this scene on Highway 55 near the Budweiser Brewery looking north toward the Gateway Arch. Painting was a race against the clock, but I felt this result captured the excitement and vitality of these busy highways.

Info About This Piece,
It was a bright, cold winter morning when I joined several other plein air artists painting this scene. Our day began with a mixture of sunshine, clouds and intermittent snow flurries. Morning temperatures were round 8 degrees, but by noon it warmed up to 25 degrees and we rejoiced when the sun appeared for several hours. A farm cat even ventured out briefly to sit in the sun by the barn door.          .

Info About This Piece,
I found this old crane on the river front just south of downtown St. Louis in an industrial area designed for shipping and receiving of barge cargo. Today most of the hoisting and loading equipment in this area appears to be waiting patiently for the return of more prosperous times. I wanted to paint this rusting old crane because it recalled past commercial and industrial vitality that distinguished this section of the Mississippi River.

Info About This Piece,
Clinton Missouri is a city of restored Victorian era homes. It has a modern downtown, but they have also carefully preserved and restored many of the historic buildings within the city. An authentic frontier farm and museum have been constructed in a city park just off the Town Square. This fine old log cabin is one the several main structures within the farm. I couldn’t resist painting it with its’ bower of climbing roses. The larger metropolitan buildings of downtown are visible in the background of this painting.

Info About This Piece,
I painted this picture of the Tapestry Room Restaurant in the historic downtown of Lebanon, Illinois during a plein air paint outing with my son Shawn. This historic town is a great place for artists because of the many interesting scenes and subjects to be found along the restored portions of old St Louis Street. It was a warm day so we set up our easels in the shade where we had a clear view across the street and down the length of these beautiful old Victorian buildings.

Info About This Piece,
The inspiration for this scene came from a photo on an old calendar dated 1965. The title was simply: "A covered bridge in Kentucky". I especially liked the combination of warm reflections and soft shadows along this stream. It seemed a good place to take a leisurely evening stroll. Covered bridges have universal appeal for travelers perhaps it the idea of safe passage and protection from the elements.

Info About This Piece,
This painting of the historic Bothwell Chapel was done at McKendree University, in Lebanon, Illinois. Throughout the day as I painted, a gentle rain was falling so I found shelter beneath a convenient evergreen. The quiet mood of the day was contrasted by cheerful highlights of the redbud and flowering crab apple trees.
