Red and Gray, 6" x 6", Oil on Panel, 2007 SOLD
The ominous looking skies in the distance never amounted to much as they got closer, but a day or so later we were blanketed in about 6" of snow. The whole place has that great Winter Wonderland look to it and I am reminded of how close the Arctic really is. And then there's something about oil tankers and northern latitudes that reminds me of "Smilla's Sense of Snow."
Apologies for the lapse in posts. My wife and I picked up an 8 week old puppy this weekend and nothing has been the same since. Sleep has become a commodity. I've spent about half of the last four days on the floor with chew toys. We keep looking at each other saying, "Well if this is what it's like to have a puppy, what's it gonna be like if we have kids?!"

Soon enough, Cooper, that lil pup will be laying at your feet while you paint. Keep going on your ships / boats . . . as you already know, it is all about shape! Great work!

Thanks Mike. I think the pup has to stop chewing on my ankles first!
