‘Whiskey with Charlie’ ipad painting

I did this still life painting a while back and submitted it for the Dana Gallery’s ‘Icons of the West’ show, but they didn’t seem to like it… Jeez, what could be more iconic than whiskey and good ol’ Charlie Russell? Guess I should have done a mountain man or a pony.

Pushing around some real paint in a little sketch.

‘Chance View’ ipad painting

Just randomly looking out a window at the neighborhood.

‘Hill and Cloud’ iPad painting

A hill in Sawmill Gulch, the sky starting to wind up with spring.

‘March 23 afternoon’ ipad painting


Sorry haven’t posted for awhile–happens now and again. Just relaxing in the window seat and looking west. Set the brush up with lots of thinner and used it like a marker–ArtRage as usual and a wacom intuos stylus.

‘Clearwater Winter’ Artrage script to video

Here’s the vid of painting that last piece I posted. Head and the Heart is the soundtrack–it was the right length and titled “Winter Song”, so had to be the right one…

Ipad painting setup

I built a 2.0 version of the ipad ‘paint box’ I posted some time ago. Not bad–I do use it with a black compact umbrella as well, an absolute necessity on a day like today, standing in snow and sunshine…but the clip on shade helps as well, and then folds up and stores in the lid.
