"The Shell Seekers"

"The Shell Seekers" 18x24 oil on linen.
This is the first decent shot of this painting that I have been able to get. I had some really lousy images from a previous camera, that made the painting look worst than it actually is. This is a studio painting I painted very quickly over a period of time.

"The Morning Star"

"The Morning Star" 16x20 oil on linen
This is a new painting I just completed. Again, it is an old rusty bucket. Maybe its time to do a few sail boats. If I lived in the Old Port area, I would probably make a nuisance of myself, and hang out, and get in the way of actual work.
