What's On the Easel

This is what I'm working on right now. What you are viewing is commonly called "work in progress." The multiple images show the stages of how the painting is conceived, drawn, then painted. This page is continually updated as the painting progresses. The final piece will appear in the Gallery section.

Commissioned pieces are welcomed. Inquire via e-mail for further information.

A new collaboration effort to create outdoor art: sculpted tiles! This is a set of 3 clay tiles that will be installed outside in a private residence. We are very excited about this work, as it combines the best of Bob's sculpting with the best of my painting.

Here is the set as they dry and become "greenware" tiles:

Once they are completely dry, the first firing will change the tile into bisque and become white. Then, the glaze will be applied. Stay tuned for updates!

While traveling between art shows, we stopped in an abandoned town just outside of Amarillo TX. The only thing moving was the rusty hinges on the vacant builiding. The images show the progression, still some work to do.

Finished!

"CATHEDRAL BASILICA"
from this unique perspective, is based on the Basilica here in Santa Fe, commonly known as the Saint Francis Cathedral, and is the Archdiocses of Santa Fe. The Cathedral was built by Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy between 1869 and 1886, and is on the site of an older church, La Parroquia, built between 1714 to 1717.

Finished size: 24"w x 20"h soft pastel on board
