Tractor sketch

Here is a fun little 4.5x5.5" study. I took a trip up to Bear Lake, and found tons of cool imagery. A portion of which being these really cool old tractors people used for boats and other water toys, what once might have been a serious investment for a farm owner is now being used as a recreational tool. Been thinking of these images a lot lately, more to come soon.

Art-2-Go Show Round 2

So it has been far too long since I have posted anything to this blog.  That doesn't mean that I've stopped painting, the contrary really, it almost seems as though I've been painting too much to blog. But also a new semester has started heavy and other things life, I digress.

I have the opportunity to yet again be a part of the Annual Art-2-Go show at Art Access Gallery in SLC, UT.  It was a blast last year, so I really can't wait to attend again, always a good crowd there on stroll night and I end up meeting some really interesting folks and get caught up in great conversation.  These were the 4 paintings that I put in this year and if you look at the ones I entered just the year previous it is interesting to see the changes made.  Not only in the paint, but things like framing as well, I've learned just how much can happen in the space of 1 year. Hope you enjoy.
