Falls of the Ohio Pen and Ink Detail

 This is another closeup of a pen and ink drawing. This section is about 4 x 4 inches. I really like the closeups because I like seeing the pen strokes and the patterns in the lines. That border between the representation of the scene, and the abstraction of the marks on paper, is what I find most exciting about any art medium.

Landscape in oil, 16 x 20 inches

This was a commissioned work on panel.  I added a little more glazing after this photo was taken; I'll take more photos later, even though the difference is so small most people wouldn't notice.

Commissioned oil landscape work-in-progress

Getting near the end...just need to let it dry a few days so I can work over some corrections, refinements, etc.
