During Wind and Rain - Study
6X8, Oil on Panel

Last year, one of my biggest collectors, who also happens to write and direct musicals both off and sometimes on Broadway,  asked if I would paint something that could serve as a poster for an upcoming musical he was working on titled, "During Wind and Rain."  The musical is based upon real life events that occurred in one single family in Desha County, Arkansas around the turn of the century.  It is a tragic story of multiple deaths and the shadow they cast  upon a once prominent and wealthy cotton farming family.  I was intrigued and wanted to do it.  This is the study  upon which the final piece was based.  The musical opens in North Little Rock, Arkansas in April and I can't wait to see it.

Zeus
8X10, Oil on Panel

Back in the '80s, elk from the Rockies were introduced in the Buffalo National River park.  Before white settlers came and hunted them to extinction, the region was home to a smaller subspecies known as the eastern elk.  Today, the elk herds attract many visitors to the park mostly during the fall when the big bulls join the herds in the bottoms for rut.

I started and did most all of the work for this one last year but was never certain I was done with it until a few weeks ago so I'm taking credit for it in 2017. #6 of 50.

Binary Opposition #2
30X30, Oil on Panel

A little bit less abstraction on this one.  I liked it but I could probably do better today.

So, posted the panorama straight to here did not work out so well so here a link to it on Facebook for those who are interested in seeing it how it is meant to be viewed.  :)

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

My work is about pain, loss, the darkness that follows death, emptiness, the faint wisps of joy which hang on the horizon but are never there, and the path back to something akin to happiness. The beauty of nature and the place of humans within it often form the backdrop for this expression of pain. I have a predilection for those themes which represent the joyous days of my childhood. Streams, rivers and bodies of water hold a particular fascination as do small towns and the fading remnants of our civilization, so quickly reclaimed by the land.


I am represented by Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock and Ellen Hobgood Gallery in Heber Springs, AR.
