Title: SOPHIE'S BARN

10.5 x 14.5, Oil on Board

I was about half way through painting this small, big barn when a friend stopped by my studio. She looked at it and without missing a beat asked, "Is that Sophie's barn?" I said, "I don't know Sophie", but continued to tell her the location of the barn in Midway, Utah. Upon hearing where the barn is located she said, "Yup, that's Sophie's barn." I replied, "Well, I think the title of this one should be Sophie's Barn."

Title: 68

12 X 16, Oil on Board

I found a beautifully faded 1968 Ford hiding in a barn in Midway, Utah one morning and ever since shooting it that image had been parked in my mind. As the small works show approached, I knew it would make a successful small painting.

I loved the geometric facade of the building that served as it's backdrop. The pairing looked like old friends from the same era. It was an unexpected relationship that enchanted me and so I added the license plate to pay tribute to the moment and the place that enchants in unexpected ways.

AVAILABLE AT THE ALBUQUERQUE MUSEUM'S ARTSTHRIVE EXHIBIT OCTOBER 21 THROUGH DECEMBER 4TH Title: FECHIN'S CHAIR 15 X 15, Oil on Board The Taos Art Museum in New Mexico resides in the former studio of Nicolai Fechin, one of New Mexico's most recognized painters. As I toured the unique Russian-Pueblo structure that Fechin designed and built much of by hand, I was struck by one of the artist's "thinking" chairs in the corner with late afternoon long shadows and beautiful light raking across it. I did a few thumbnail sketches to figure out what the composition was calling for and came away with a few reference images that I thought would make a successful small painting while paying a small tribute to the mastery of Nicolai Fechin.
