Hidden In The Hills Studio Tour opens this Friday....visit Studio #23

This Friday will be the first day of the "Hidden In The Hills" studio tour and sale.  I will be at studio #23 which is the studio of artist "Jossy Lownes."  Another well known landscape painter, "Becky Joy" will also be at this location.  The three of us also participate in the "Celebration of Fine Art" show which opens in January.  We are all very excited about the opportunity to meet with you and to share a sneak peak at many of our new paintings.  If you are in the area this weekend or next .... be sure and stop by for look.  We are located just off of Scottsdale Rd and Jomax.  There will be signs out to help you find us.  There are several other studio tours on Jomax as well, so be sure and visit a few of them on your way out to Carefree.

The map of all the participating artists can be found here:

"The Playoffs" - Baltimore Oriole Baseball painting in progress

"The Playoffs"  -  In-progress

Since my last post, I decided to paint in a "Baltimore Oriole" into my oil painting in progress.  I had already been thinking that would be the "bird" I wanted to paint since the "Orioles" were still in the "playoffs" at the time.  Now I know the "Red Sox" won, so I will have to come up with something fun to paint with a "Red Sox" theme.  But for now......tune in tomorrow to see the finished painting I call "The Playoffs."

"The Playoffs" in-progress - baseball oil painting

"The Playoffs"

I enjoy painting "baseball" themed art.  I think its fun to try and capture the detail in the old leather and to tell a little story with each one I paint.  My work is really about "painting birds" and the last few years I have been incorporating the "birds" into still life arrangements, and also "sports themed" paintings.

This is an in-progress oil painting of 2 baseball gloves.  I started it during the 2013 "playoffs" baseball season.  You will have to tune in again to see which "bird" I chose to paint into my oil painting I call "The Playoffs."   It is 11 x 14" and this photo shows the early stage of the painting.
