Camp 20 Creek color vibration study w/red undertone
6"x 6" oil mounted on stained luan


I did a number of works experimenting with reddish
undertone following some study of the teachings of
Edgar Payne and Emile A. Gruppe. Red is the opposite
color of greens, and contrasting green paint against
a reddish undertone excites the greens, and causes the
brushstroke to feel as to better imitate light. This
was one such study...

Few more to tempt you...

The first is a painting I did during the month of
April, a plein air (painted on location...),
8"x 10"...oil

I was quite taken by the backlit glare of these tag
alders along a spring thaw snowy bank. The promise
of spring...water opening. Enjoyed the brushwork and
capturing the light's mood..

Sherman Tank...plein air

9"x 12" oil on board

This was painted in Wabeno, WI at their community park,
and what struck my eye was the beauty of the light,
the reflected color and indirect light...creating
this sense of beauty. An irony I thought, of something
known for purposes of carrying out vast destruction to
sit so still, peaceful..and such color.

It carried nobility for its purpose, proud...
