Spring Ride

Yes I've signed it, but I'm sure it's not quite done yet.

Tonight's Painting: Farrier and Pony

When was a kid, I thought I'd like to be a blacksmith or a farrier when I grew up.  Both occupations still hold a fascination for me, so when I saw a farrier at work at a local stable I asked if I could take some photos of him.  I'm not really sure he said yes, but I was pretty sure he didn't say no, and nobody threw me out of the stable.  This painting is the result of those photos.

A Good Night's Work


I should probably be doing another local landscape since I have a show opening here in ten days, but I've been thinking a lot lately of Guincho Beach, where Bica and I used to take Saturday morning walks.  Sometimes you just have to paint what's on your mind.

Fall Vineyard, Esslingen


This one has been on the table for a week or so. I'll put it away for the rest of the weekend, and if, when I look at it on Monday, I decide it's finished, I'll take it to the framer.
