Wine Bottle Grapes Kitchen Chef Bold Impressionism oil painting

"In My Kitchen" 6x6" oil

This time of year, as the air grows colder and the autumn color is ablaze, I get inspired to paint bold warm color. This little painting would be a great holiday gift for a friend or family who is a wine lover, a chef or just loves entertaining. They look great in the kitchen or dining room. It's yours (if my sister doesn't confiscate it from my studio, :)

original Locomotive Steam Engine Train oil painting Mountains Durango & Silverton

A great gift idea for those train buffs that are so hard to buy for! I have painted this train climbing the San Juan mountains in my mind ever since we rode on this narrow guage railroad. I finally put it in paint. This view was so incredible. I took this shot from one of the windows of the Pulman coach car towards the back of the train. It was breathtaking watching the locomotive pull us up and around the side of the mountain. The sound of the engine chugging away to pull all those cars up the mountain, the clickety clack of the track, the cinders in the air and the rocking of the cars, what an awesome experience. You could lean out (careful of any trees sticking out ahead of you) and look down over a thousand feet! This awesome journey runs most of the year on the Durango / Silverton in Colorado.
