horse trail

plein air, windy day.
8"x10" oil on clayboard.
this surface really grabs the paint, so i have trouble getting flowing passages.
a trail near the equestrian center, quite a nice walk.

Tangerines in Winter

Oil on raymar panel, 10"x12". when i began painting several years ago, I thought still life painting would be boring, but it's actually a favorite motif for me now.
