Above, Landscape with Olive Trees, oil sketch on canvas, 8" x 6". Sold.
Below, alternate sketch in mixed media on paper, 6" x 4". Sold.
I'm working with Dawn Ranagan of Magnolia Designs, whose client needs a piece of art to anchor a grouping on a particular wall. The existing theme and colors are Italian-inspired, so we're working with a warm-colored landscape of hills and olive trees.
The finished piece will be 36" x 24" and, of course, I'll post a photo here when it's completed.

I began this yesterday. It's based on a bas-relief sculpture I photographed in Stillwater, MN in October. Such a wondrous beast that I knew immediately I needed to make some paintings based on it.
These are 18" square wooden panels. They will be a set; I'll be using wax medium to create translucent, textured layers of paint. When they're finished I'll photograph them again and post.
