Artist Comments

I composed this painting from a reference photo featuring the side view of a garden cottage. Of course, that photo had much more to show in it than what I present here. I thought it would be interesting to crop as much as possible out of the original photo and create an original composition that focused just on a few elements—the window, siding, picket fence, and some flowers. I like how this turned out. I’ve done this technique before.  Below are the other paintings where I’ve done a tight crop.

Artist Comments

This oil painting was a little bit of an experiment for me. Sometimes I like to give myself challenges. In this particular challenge, I wanted to see if I could paint rubber and make it look like rubber. I think I achieved that goal. What do you think?

What I like most about this painting is the different textures present in it — the wood, the rubber, and even the rusty metal rim. It was an enjoyable challenge painting all those textures and getting them just right. In addition, there are warm colors that contrast against the cool ones. There are so many neat things happening in this painting; it was just a fun one to paint!

I believe an artist’s environment significantly influences the type of art they create — I know it does me. I can always find some interesting objects to paint here on our small Texas ranch; however, I don’t limit myself. I do paint other locations too. When we go on vacation, I always take my camera with me to capture as much as possible in photos that will be used someday as reference material for future paintings.

This painting would be the perfect art piece for the man cave, especially if you love farm tractors or cars. I can imagine no one would have ever thought a tractor tire would be the focal point for a painting, but it isn’t the only farm equipment I’ve painted. A few years back, I did a painting of some horse tack too. Check out Barn Door with Horse Tack.

Still Life with Tractor Tire reminds me of another painting I did several years ago. It also has a lot of texture. It is called Marine Still Life with Boat Fenders.

Artist Comments

Texans are a proud bunch, and we love our state. This is evident everywhere you go here. It would be rare to travel through the Lone Star State and not see a barn or other outbuilding painted up with the Texas flag like the one in this painting. And you don’t have to travel far outside the city limits to find one either. This particular barn happens to be a famous landmark on US Hwy 377 just east of Stephenville, Texas.

About The Texas Flag

Lone Star FlagThe Texas flag (a.k.a. the “Lone Star Flag”) was adopted in 1845 when Texas became the 28th state. It is a rectangle that has a width to length ratio of two to three. It contains a vertical blue field of color and two horizontal fields of color, one being white and the other one red. The flag also sports a single white star which is located in the center of the blue field. This lone star represents “ALL of Texas and stands for our unity as one for God, state, and country.” Each color field in the flag symbolizes the following:

    • Blue stands for loyalty
    • White represents purity
    • Red is for bravery

Artist Comments

This oil painting is part of a series of paintings about what life is like in the great state of Texas. This painting of large round hay bales is about life in general in the rural areas of East Texas. Cattle ranchers abound here, and since cattle and other farm animals need food, we also have a lot of hay farmers. Everywhere you go, if you don’t see cattle or horses grazing in a large pasture, you’ll most likely see hay growing there, or you’ll see hay that has been harvested and baled.

Hay farmers harvest their hay using equipment called balers. Balers can bale (package) hay in various ways — small rectangle bales, large square or rectangular bales, or large round bales. The large round bales can weigh anywhere from 800 to over 1,500 pounds! When they are that heavy, they have to be moved around with hay forks attached to tractors. Many cattlemen prefer the round bales instead of small rectangle bales as they are less labor-intensive to store and transfer and easier to feed to their cattle. They place these large round bales inside hay rings so their cattle and horses can graze on them for days. However, small farms and ranches may still use the smaller rectangle hay bales since they have fewer heads of cattle to feed.
