Artist Comments: This gothic church was originally painted and made famous by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh in June 1890. Van Gogh’s church is located in Auvers, France. I wanted to do my own rendition of this lovely church and the results of that desire are what you see here. You can find out more about Van Gogh’s painting of this church on Wikipedia: The Church at Auvers.

Although our styles are vastly different, Van Gogh is a favorite painter of mine. I love much of his work, from that vase of sunflowers to this old church in the village where he lived before his death. Many of his oil paintings were characterized by bold, dramatic colors emphasized by impulsive and expressive brushwork. He painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits.

According to Wikipedia, Van Gogh is considered among the “most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.”  He painted around 860 oil paintings and many of these were painted during the last two years of his life. He died at age 37 by a self inflicted wound. You can read more about Van Gogh here.

This canvas art is part of a series of paintings called the Christian Art Series.


The Fisherman

Size: 9″ x 12″
Support: Canvas panel board

Artist Comments: Fishing is a popular recreation for those lucky enough to find the time to fish for the “big one.” I don’t particularly like to fish myself, but I have several friends who do enjoy this sport. I found this particular marine life painting an interesting subject to paint.

Size: 12″ x 9″
Support: Canvas panel board

Artist Comments: This rustic oil painting is another example of a non-traditional still life. It is a composition utilizing horse tack hanging on an old barn door. A still life doesn’t always have to be a traditional type using flowers, fruit or figurines, it can be composed of any inanimate object.

Artist Comments: The Grand Teton Mountains is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the U.S. Located in northwestern Wyoming, this mountain range is the central feature of Grand Teton National Park. Several years ago I had opportunity to visit this park and was awed by the stunning mountain scenery.

Fence Post In The Snow

Size: 9″ x 12″
Support: Canvas panel board

Artist Comments: This winter landscape is one of my favorite snow paintings. I really enjoyed painting this fence post with all its knots, texture, and that hole. Painting those shadows in the snow turned out to be quite interesting too. I thought the barb wire was going to be a bit of a challenge to paint and almost left it out.

Sunset Over Texas

Size: 12″ x 9″
Support: Canvas panel board

Artist Comments: The photo that inspired this sunset painting was borrowed from my brother-in-law who photographed this scenery. It was taken near Austin where he lives with his wife. Texas is known for having some of the loveliest sunsets in America. As a native of Texas, I can attest to that myself. This painting is part of the Life In Texas Series.
