"under the oaks"
32"x48" acrylic on canvas - this guy was a commission/gift for my bro and his sweet new wife who live in South Louisiana- i had done a similar one for a friend and they wanted one with deeper tones and more green/more masculine b/c my brother is so manly! I used a large brush and a palette knife to create depth and texture, and finished it with a matte varnish- if you want to get you one contact me with any ideas!

this is a 24"x48" original acrylic on canvas done with palette knife and large brush strokes, finished with a gloss varnish - it is a commission for one of my besties and i love the warmth of the yellows and golds how it calls to the sun and the cools represent the vine giving its life for the cotton boll, its a stark contrast between the end result of the soft cotton and the dead, crispy vine that has held it and nourished it to life... hmmmmmm i could come up with so many analogies...
i had a grand time creating these little beauties! they mostly sold out at my last show #doubledecker2017 but look for more and they may grow big! whooo hooo!!

19"x32" original acrylic on canvas, i used a palette knife and large brush to create space and texture- living near the MS delta for 10 years this was my view from the county roads and highways during the fall and it will always take my breath the think on the white fields and the hard work of farmers and their families. If you want to purchase him contact me!

"paint my spirit gold"
...and again thank you bobby for getting this little guy for jamie! She is an amazing woman!
a little side note on the name... i love mumford and sons and their lyrics get me and stay with me - so "paint my spirit gold" is from "i will wait" and to me its a song of faith to Jesus as we wait to see him face to face but live each moment by faith bc it says in 1peter "we love him yet have never seen him"
"Now I'll be bold As well as strong And use my head alongside my heart So tame my flesh And fix my eyes A tethered mind freed from the lies And I'll kneel down, Wait for now I'll kneel down, Know my ground Raise my hands Paint my spirit gold And bow my head Keep my heart slow"
