Featured Artist for October

These are all acrylic on 1.5″ canvas, all unframed except that I made a custom frame for the picture above the little table after it was sold. I think they are quite nice either way.

I painted them all in 2019, some as recently as last week, so they are highly representative of my current output

Sleepy Willet 30″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas, $1,600

Willets are usually at the edge of the surf, poking into the wet sand as they follow each wave in and out. This one, when I came on him, was standing above the splash line on one leg asleep. Eventually he noticed me getting closer and closer with my camera and opened his eyes, but still acted sleepy. I painted him with the golden late afternoon sun on his chest and head, and with lavender and gray where his feathers were in shadow.

Vandenberg Falcons 24″x30 acrylic on canvas, $950. When I painted this Peregrine falcon I hadn’t quite realized how intimidated he looked, so I thought it might be good to have something in the picture to intimidate him. What better than the SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy I had just watched launched from Vandenberg AFB?

UGallery is a 10-year-old curated online art gallery and, I hope, a good place to sell.
