Trailhead Paintings

The beginning of a larger painting from the smaller one below. I took the No Name Path to the top and kept going up and found this view at 7:30am. The shadows were moving fast as the sun came over the hill, so I quickly snapped a couple of photos.

Abstracted Landscapes







These paintings have an underlay of Williamsburg Lead Oil Ground which gives the painting surface lots of texture. After the ground dries, the painting is created with oil paint.

The Aegeon


My friend who lives in Greece part of the year tells me the Aegeon is not this color. Whatever. This painting is on a wood panel and has lots of texture, and the water sparkles because it is coated with Williamsburg Interference paint.
