Farmhouse Panorama II

This is yet another panorama (multiple canvas) work based on the Milton Jones Farmhouse in Cary, NC. Painted over three canvases, each measuring 16 x 20 inches in size, it depicts the farmhouse straight-away. I enjoyed creating this piece and the work went very quickly.

"Farmhouse Panorama II." Oil on three 20 x 16 inch stretched canvases (total size 20 x 48 inches). Completed January 2010.

Farmhouse Panorama III

I've spent today photographing artwork created over the past several months, and will now begin posting the work here on the blog.

This piece, "Farmhouse Panorama III," is a return to the Jones Farmhouse in Cary, NC that inspired a series of paintings in 2008. For this effort, I created a panorama image by painting the scene over four 11x14-inch canvases. I chose to put the farmhouse in deep shadow so that it would contrast strongly with the bright sky and background.

Coming Soon: New Work for Somerhill Gallery Exhibit

I've been extremely busy in the studio over the past few weeks, so busy I've been neglecting the blog. I have a backlog of new works to photograph, and plan to do so this week. The new pieces are in preparation for an exhibit I will be having at the Somerhill Gallery (Durham, NC) in October. I'm excited about this opportunity and have been working hard to develop new canvases for the show. More details - and images - to follow soon.
