A couple of new plein air paintings:

Houses under construction, 8"x10", oil on panel

The Fountain In The Grove, 10"x7 3/4", oil on panel
I wrote a song several years ago about my father's passing called The Fountain In The Grove. The image of a neglected fountain burbling away in the woods came from the song, and I've painted it a few times. In this case I painted the simple fountain at home, then searched for an appropriately gloomy setting in the woods nearby to set the scene.
Thank you to all that came out to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition this month. It was a pleasure to make new connections, meet online acquaintences in person, and to see old friends again. J

Cars. A lot of cars.

These cars were continually shuffled around during my stay in the alley. What a challenge!

Oil on panel, 8"x10" SOLD
