Info About This Piece,
My son Shawn, is married to Elizabeth (Lodholz), whose parents own a condominium at Lake Dillon in Colorado. This picture was photographed by Richard and Rita Lodholz on a frosty December morning from their balcony. When I received this photo by e-mail I was captivated by the lively colors and fantastic scenery. It was an easy decision to try this oil painting and the outcome was quite satisfying. I hope someday to try a plein air painting from this  same location for comparison of results.

Info About This Piece,
I wanted to find a suitable winter scene for our 2009 Christmas Card, and "googled" SNOW SCENES on my computer. The number of really beautiful photographs that came up was amazing! I particularly liked this one because it reminds me of our  winter scenery right here in South Western Illinois. The snow banks and partially frozen stream left no doubt that this photo was taken on a bright, cold winter's day.

Info About This Piece,
These weathered Bristle-Cone Pine Trees are centuries old, yet they cling stubbornly to life. They exist on the extreme edge of timberline at elevations often above 10,000 feet. Some living specimens date back to biblical times. This studio painting was made from memory aided by photos and a 1970 edition of Arizona Highways Magazine.

Info About This Piece,
I like the fall color palette presented by this hilltop vista at the Shaw Nature Reserve: a combination of brown, red and orange foliage above the rich gold of the prairie grasses, The dark shadows and browns of the dried weeds and seed pods offered interesting contrasts in the foreground. It was a perfect Fall day with light breezes and a few clouds. I  enjoyed the company of other artists working nearby, as well as visiting with families who came out out for a hike or a picnic on this fine day.

Info About This Piece,
This painting depicts the beginning of winter in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park. The scene is from the cover of a magazine entitled "Nature Conservancy Landmarks, Winter 2006". I thought that the fresh snow on the rocks and tree branches was beautiful, and the fog- shrouded trees in the distance made a nice composition. I was also liked the swift clear water flowing from the geyser basin, and the pink and yellow highlights in the morning sky.

Info About This Piece,
I painted this scene while looking out of the south-east window of my studio on a foggy winter morning. The early morning sun illuminated layers of fog that had settled into the valley during the night, and it created sparkling highlights on each snow-laden branch and twig.

Info About This Piece,
A group of plein air artists gathered at Jefferson Barracks in February to capture this winter scene. This old quarry is reportedly where limestone blocks were obtained for construction of the original buildings at this historic Army Post. Many of these buildings are still in use today. The day was bitter cold with a sharp wind blowing up the river, but the sun appeared briefly to help brighten the day.

Info About This Piece,
This studio painting of the Grand Canyon is based upon a photograph taken by the artist’s brother-in-law, Don Gleaves, from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Don was fortunate to be employed by the North Rim Lodge during the summer of 2000, and he took advantage of opportunities to hike, sight-see and take photographs in this beautiful area. This scene is typical of the breath-taking depths and vast panoramic views in this great natural wonder.
