"Freedom" Horse painting for ebay

Freedom -- 11" x 14" oil on canvas

This photo really doesn't do this painting justice. It doesn't show the richness of the color, and it really flattens out the background. I have it on ebay right now until 6:30 PST if anyone is interested. Starting bid is $90...I also have some more ACEO's...Cheers! Have a great day!

Brand New Painting

Despair  9"x12" oil on canvas  $SOLD

Fresh off of the easel, last night at about 7 pm. I'm really happy with this one. It's been a while since I painted a sad face, or one this close up, but this is what I really love to do. I've been attracted to faces since I was small. I have to admit, I didn't take the reference photo for this wonderful character. I found it on Morguefile. Thanks very much to bboomerindenial  for the use of this great photo. 
I find my camera reads the warms a little too intense. I'm going to have to figure out how to done them down. The shadows in his hands are not that red at all.
I also have new art cards on ebay for anyone who's below

Mending the Nets

Mending the Nets - 9" x 12" oil on canvas  $225.00
(Click on image to view bigger)

This is what I've been working on for the last week or so. I also have a sketch done in my Travel Journal, but it is needing some color...and I've done a bunch of ACEO's, too.
This picture is really about Bella Coola's history. The building is the old cannery net loft. It has long been abandoned, but used to be a huge part of the industry here. The inset is from the Bella Coola archives, it is a Nuxalk woman mending the nets...I love this view of the net loft. I have about fifty photos of it, in all different weather, and times of day. I live in such a beautiful place!

...and even more ACEO's

Hello everyone...sorry about the lack of sketches, if anyone noticed...but I'm trying to make a few bucks to pay for the deluxe printer I just bought, lol!  And I need special paper, too, and Crystal Clear Bags...
Uhhh...the business of art. I'd rather just paint, and let someone else do all the other work, but I've made a new years resolution to get serious this year, and treat it as a job instead of a hobby...see where that gets me.
These cuties go active on Ebay at about 6 pm PST, 
Cheers, all!

Feeding the Pigeons at St. Stephen's Green

I finally finished another travel journal page. They might be coming a little slower these days. I'm super busy with a lot of other things, but I'm determined:) This was just a sweet scene that I captured when I found the park. It was such a beautiful place, a veritable oasis in the middle of a bustling city. There weren't that many people, and the ones that were there were really just enjoying the day. I wish I could go back and sit by the water.
