Egg Tempra

36 x 48

My friend Mariah sitting on the beach at her grandmother's house in Florida. Mariah is also a great artist and art major at Austin Peay State University...I've also had the priviledge of teaching her since she was sixteen and watching her art develop. One of my favoite paintings, and probably my best.

"A Walk On The Beach"

 Watercolor study

10" x 20"

I just did this little watercolor study of Mariah on the beach again in Florida a few weeks ago, right before starting her final year in college as an art major. She is such a natural to paint.......can't wait to do this one in egg tempra....probably around 20 x 30 in size. I have several studies to do of her in Florida.....the biggest problem is deciding which one to paint!

"Father of Bluegrass"


16" x 20"

This is a loose watercolor study of the painting I am getting ready to do....commemorating what would been the one hundreth birthday of Bill Monroe, the father of bluegrass. He would have been one hundred years old in September of this year. He was the one who give the name "Bluegrass" to the music that he perfected and played. A legend in country music. I

will be starting on this one pretty soon, the original watercolor will be around 30 x 40 in size. The crude studies just give you a quick feel of the light, color and composition that will be in the final painting.

I think this will be one of my finest watercolors when finished.


 Egg Tempra

16 x 20

I loved doing this painting in egg tempra because of the contrast and colors involved. The setting for the painting was an old store in Leipers Fork, Tn.
