Arbuckle Shoreline
February 12, 2010

Oil on 11 inch by 14 inch stretched canvas. The scene is from the Lake of the Arbuckles in south central Oklahoma. If you remember the paintings of the large jumbled rocks posted on this blog earlier, this scene is just a short paddle beyond those rocks across the lake from The Point.  Since there are often whitecaps to deal with when paddling across to this inlet, I am often especially pleased to reach this inlet.

Water Hole in Winter
February 9, 2010

Acrylics on 9 inch by 12 inch canvas board. The scene is from the Lake Thunderbird area in central Oklahoma where vast herds of western cedars still roam the plains free. I painted this over another scene, so if you look closely, there is a spot or two in the sky with a bit more texture than expected, but overall, personally, I like this painting.
