Another Morning on the River

20"X16" Oil on canvas

This, of course is on the bank of the Niagara River, looking towards Youngstown, NY.

I was going to rework an old image again. it was an image very much like this one, probably taken in the same place. I had painted it as a watercolour about three years ago. I had it all sketched out in charcoal on my canvas but it really wasn't working. Then I remembered that I had taken a photograph just a week or so ago at much the same place and I thought I would try that instead. I posted my WIP here, here and here, in the first one you can still see a faint ghost of the other tree behind it.

As usual, I found it very hard to call this done but I think I will leave it alone for now.

Shed in a Vineyard

11"x14" Oil on canvas

Somewhere on East-West Line, Niagara-on-the-Lake. This is one That I am in serious danger of over-painting. Come to think of it, they are all like that.

16"x20" Oil on canvas

I have been trying to work on some larger pieces recently. This is one that I am not quite happy with yet but I am going to set it aside for a few days and see how I feel when I come back to it. Composition is always my downfall. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but I don't seem to be very good at fixing the ones that don't.
