The Proposal

"The Proposal"
oil on canvas
11"x14"

This was a commission that has a really fun story!
I was approached by a young man who had BIG plans to propose to his sweetheart. These big plans included the idea of having a painting of the way he imagined it would be on that day. He had EVERY detail worked out in his head. It seemed like a big challenge but he was so sweet and it was such a romantic idea that I took it on.
He sent lots of photos of himself and his gal and said it would be on a path at a particular woods, what he would be wearing, what she would be wearing (even the shoes they would wear, how he would propose and make sure a black ring box was in his hand. Now,take into consideration that I had never met the gal and all the photos he sent me were not 3/4 or profile views and NOT in the special blue dress!

I was asked to do a version of a past sold painting of our
Art Museum's Sculpture Garden with her son in the scene.
I am saddened to recently learn that the museum is eliminating
the sculpture garden to make room for expansion.

Puffaloon Lake

"Puffaloon Lake"
oil on canvas - 8"x10"
Dreamscape Series

I thought I would start this week with a trip to
Puffaloon Lake for a little summer fun.
Since the sixities, I have created flat collage work that I have
called "Dreamscapes". I always thought they were studies
for future paintings and I used them to practice color, design and
to keep my brain open for new concepts.
All these years have gone by and I never did them into paintings.
Lately, I have been thinking about them and had this little vision
of Puffaloon Lake pop into my head....

Hope you enjoy it!

Sculpture Garden #1

"Contemplation"
Oil on canvas - 9"x 12"
contemporary fine art - figurative,city scene,landscape

It was a beautiful day at the Columbus Museum of Art. I spent some time in the sculpture garden. It was so relaxing to view the sculptures near the pond. A perfect fall day; the leaves were just beginning to get some color. The larger canvas gave me more of the open feeling of the garden that I felt.

A young woman found the sculpture garden to be a perfect place to do a little studying. It was a beautiful fall day. I loved the reflection of the bronze sculpture and trees in the pond. After a few sketches, I came up with this image.

"I just happened to catch one of those first time events, as my
neighbor's child managed to take off for the very first time on
his bicycle. He had attempted many times but this time, with a
helping hand from his mom, he was finally able to go on his own.
It brought back memories of my very first time. I think it is
probably one of those things that we never forget. "
