Nags Head Pier

This was a fun little thing that happened. Almost as if it were all one big happy accident. 
It has a certain graphic quality about it. Why not?

Even in the not so early stages of an artist's career it's easy to make "The Fatal Error".
 I have done it and  I've watched you do it.  I have placed my focal point in the wrong spot or on occasion "off the canvas completely"! I have put the horizon line dead  on center of the canvas. In this example I show that I  was so worried about painting clouds that I decided on painting way too much parking lot.

This was a fun thing that just seemed to appear. I like it when that happens. It did take the best of 3 days work and a while of failures before that.
Thank you.
Buy this painting.

"Whitey" was a horse that lived on Kitty Hawk Road. He died not long ago at the ripe old age of 43.
There are bouquets of flowers on every post along the road. RIP Whitey

Raw Shrimp

Look here! I have painted a pink shrimp. I  have been full time dealing with the emotional baggage of carrying on as "Rick Nilson".  I have not spent enough time here on the internet, (where I should have been all along).

Beating my own Drum

I was doodling with a canvas and I sketched out and painted a red drum.(above)
 I thought it was pretty good. I decided to see if I could beat it. I painted a black drum.
 It was hard to top that.

This is the Queen Elizabeth II berthed on Roanoake Island.
I doubt the locals knew it (the party's over) that morning looking out across the marsh.
