Holiday Time is Painting Time

Painting at Courthouse Butte

As we get closer to the holidays—and if we're not too busy with holiday preparations and family—our time opens up a bit.  People take time off from work and use up a few vacation days.  Even though most folks consider what I do for a living "fun," it is work, and I, too, try to take a few vacation days.

For me, this means heading to the field without an agenda.  I go out just to paint.  Period.

This past week, I went out with my friend M.L. Coleman to paint some of the local Sedona scenery.  Here are two paintings I did, both of which I think are successful partly because I did go without an agenda.

Evening Light 6x8 oil
Unframed - $100  incl. shipping

Almost Sundown 6x8 oil
Unframed - $100 incl. shipping


Although I painted these on a vacation day, I'm putting them up for sale.  Maybe you're still working on your gift-buying?  And don't forget that my holiday sale is still on:
