Welcome to the Small Side Gallery, my space for posting small paintings designed especially for little places.

(Don’t forget to check out the “Little Things” at the bottom of this post!)

I’ve recently hooked up with a site called “Daily Paintworks”.  Daily Paintworks is a site where artists can post paintings for sale. The paintings are normally small and are some of the best quality around!!  To see some of the little paintings I’ve posted there……. click here!  If in the process of visiting my new DPW gallery you discover something you like, you can purchase the piece through DPW (through Pay Pal) or you can contact me through this site directly. I’ve reduced all prices on my DPW for the Christmas season and the shipping is free.

“The Watcher”  oil 8×6 inches

This last July I met up with a group of plein air painters in Breckenridge, Colorado to paint wild flowers. This was a good year to be there  painting as the wild flowers were  abundant and of course the company I kept was awesome. This crow gave me time to snap two or three photographs before moving on.  I painted this in the studio a few weeks ago.

But the reason we were there was the wild flowers. I probably should have painted more of them and not let myself get so distracted by all the cool stuff around me. (I’m easy that way) I took a heck of a bunch of photos though and this picture of the Columbine is one of my favorites. It was late afternoon and conditions were perfect but changing pretty quickly. This photo was as good as I was going to get.

Below is the “Little Thing” for today:

On his throne the

crow watched as we watched,

where did he go?
