Fall Leaves

"Fall Leaves", 2008

20" x 30", oil on canvas

Just in time for winter, it's "Fall Leaves". A commission I did for someone from a photo. There were no fall leaves down here. It's not my usual subject matter, but it came out alright, I guess.

White Ibis

16" x 20", oil on canvas board

My first painting of a bird, or at least a wading bird. I'm happy with the Ibis. He came together pretty quick. The background is another story. I repainted it several times, and like a nightmare it kept coming back the same way. It's too bad this poor bird has feed and wade in this psychotic water.
