As you may have noticed, I seem to have a compositional predilection for a horizon line that hovers close to the top of the painting. Tell me why? I honestly don’t know. But I do know it's a fact!

However, from time to time the horizon slips toward the middle, or even, as is the case here, toward the bottom of the painting. I think for this work, "Prairie Thunder” I just needed to see more sky, more rolling thunder!

Stop by Ventana Fine Art on Canyon Road in Santa Fe and take a look at this cloud filled painting. If you stop by on July 9th we can take a look at it together! That would be better!

This painting is about as close to a monochromatic color scheme as I get! I thought I'd try using warm and cool blues over a warm toned underpainting. Admittedly, some of the warm blues snuck pretty close to alizarin crimson. I like it!

One month from today my exhibition opens at Ventana Fine Artat 400 Canyon Road, Santa Fe, New Mexico! I would love it if you’d stop by, say hello, and have a look at my thirty eight newest paintings. Whew! Thirty eight, but who’s counting!

I confess I usually feel my most recent work is my best work ever, but the truth is, and it really is the truth, this is my best work ever. I won’t be hard to spot. I’ll be the guy wandering around the gallery with a big smile on his face!
