Don't Turn Away

Acrylic, 14 x14 inches

Cocky Twins

Acrylic 12x12 inches

Yep more roosters. I'm feverishly working on 15 paintings to show in a popular annual'Clothesline' sale at Leighton centre, in Calgary. They need to be small and light,unframed, put in a plastic sleaves and hung on a clothesline.( more suited for works on paper) Over 70 artists will be participating. Most of my smaller paintings I have already done, are heavy and are on thicker gallery wrap canvas. So I went shopping for lighter canvases...I have alot of work to do.

Mountain Trees

Acrylic, 30 x30
Another revamped painting. The original 'pastely' trees just didn't sit right with me and after it not being accepted into two was time for a change! I still need to do some tweeking but I do like this version better than 'Mountain Glow'

Commission from a lady who wanted a larger one ( but the same colors and pose facing the other way, as Rooster pride). Hope she likes it. ( she already has one of my 'cow' paintings.)

Autumn Kiss

Acrylic, 16x20
The nice thing about acrylics is how often I can rework or change older paintings. There was something I really didn't like about Autumn Stream ( image below) so I thought I'd play around with it. I never think of a painting as 'precious' so I don't mind experimenting or ruining it. Anyway, with this one I ended up with almost a brand new painting. I'm not sure I'm completly happy with it but I do like it much better.
