Another View of Weil der Stadt

I'll have two shows opening in March.  One of them is in the village of Weil der Stadt, and the other is in Esslingen.  I'm hoping to have plenty of local scenes to show in each.

October Fog

It's nice to work on something simple for a change.  There's a row of trees I see every day on my way home from work.  As this is the first time in years that I've lived in a climate where leaves change colors in the Fall, I enjoyed gauging the season by their transition from green to gone.

Two More Minis

Two more tiny paintings today - these are 3 x 4 inches.

I've also started another large painting, but I'm trying hard to produce a few of these small ones every week.  I need to fill the collection of frames I bought, and I also need a good variety of sizes for the two shows I'll open in March.

A View of Herrenberg

I've been working on this painting for about a week now, and finally it's done.  Not only does this kind of detail take a lot of time, but I wanted lots of contrast between areas of light and shadow, and in order to accomplish that, I painted the shadows in several layers.
