Leading Ponies

Here's another painting that I finished recently, but hadn't gotten around to posting yet.  I see this man and his ponies all the time, and he's probably a little concerned by the frequency with which I take his picture.

Esslingen Towers

I finished this painting around two weeks ago, but never got around to posting it.  This is a view of the unique towers of the church in Esslingen, which are connected by a high bridge.

Current Project

Here's my current project.  Although I've signed it (to prevent it being stolen) I still have some work to do. My next show opens Saturday. I'm hoping to get this finished in time to include it.

Spring Ride

Yes I've signed it, but I'm sure it's not quite done yet.

Tonight's Painting: Farrier and Pony

When was a kid, I thought I'd like to be a blacksmith or a farrier when I grew up.  Both occupations still hold a fascination for me, so when I saw a farrier at work at a local stable I asked if I could take some photos of him.  I'm not really sure he said yes, but I was pretty sure he didn't say no, and nobody threw me out of the stable.  This painting is the result of those photos.

A Good Night's Work

I should probably be doing another local landscape since I have a show opening here in ten days, but I've been thinking a lot lately of Guincho Beach, where Bica and I used to take Saturday morning walks.  Sometimes you just have to paint what's on your mind.

Fall Vineyard, Esslingen

This one has been on the table for a week or so. I'll put it away for the rest of the weekend, and if, when I look at it on Monday, I decide it's finished, I'll take it to the framer.
