Rank Stranger



I painted a buffalo without a reference photo.
"Rank strangers" are complete strangers. A folksong tells about a guy that goes home to see his old friends and instead finds them to be Rank Strangers.  Rodeo bulls are judged by their rankness.

Girl in Purple


I have been painting every day.  I have about 10 paintings going at the same time. None of which seem ready for prime time. I liked my girl in purple. I made her up. But there is a glare on the photo.
I try to do different stuff. In the beginning, failure seems a less bitter pill.

Wanchese Skyline

I have been struggling to paint simple landscapes. Days seem to go by without much progress. The simple landscape is never all that simple. I do like this one.
