Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

"Another White Combine Harvest" (60" x 40")

This past month I've been working on a large piece I'm calling "Another White Combine Harvest".  I'm using two 30 x 40 gallery wrapped canvases for this one.  It's almost finished  ... working on tweaking clouds and started working on the wheat field in the foreground.

 "Another White Combine Harvest"  (60" x 40")

Background Information About this Piece:
As wheat farmers living on the high plains of Eastern Colorado, we are at the mercy of the weather.  Large super-storms like the one in this painting can wipe out an entire crop in the matter of minutes.  Hail storms such as this are often called "The White Combine"  and so, the title of this painting.

Your comments are always welcome!
Thanks for looking..............
