Pandemic Painting #87

Pandemic Painting #87 is actually a Throwback Thursday of sorts. As a kid, I lived in a house on top of a sand dune. My Robinson grandparents came to the Miller section of Gary, Indiana and built a house on a hill at least 100′ high, overlooking Indian Boundary.My painting here shows the 21st Century …

Pandemic Painting #88

Pandemic Painting #88 is finally hitting the pixelated ether or whatever this computer stuff involves. Finally got my intra-web to work, so here I am. I did this one a couple of weeks ago and am pretty happy with the results. All the elements of this painting: sky, waves and dunes/grass were done twice. Sky …

Pandemic Painting #89

Been meaning to post this here Pandemic Painting #89 but I’ve been goofing off a little. Also, completed a special Halloween project and almost finished another commission. And, I do have another PP coming in a couple of days, so here we are. I’ve painted this several times before, and I don’t remember if it’s …

Pandemic Painting #90

Pandemic Painting #90 has been in the queue for a couple of weeks while I finished 2 commissions. One job I can show in a couple of weeks, one late next month.I’ve done this one before (I think) but I really like the play of light on this scene, done from a photo I took …

Pandemic Painting #91

On a gloomy Thursday night here in NW Indiana, here’s Pandemic Painting #91, a watercolor of a gloomy old barn. I’ve done this one seveeral times, but only portions of the side.

The dunes, milkweed and monarchs are among my favorite things to paint.If I wanted to get commercial with …

October 26 issue of The Beacher

Well, I’m thinking this doesn’t *really* qualify as a Pandemic Painting, so we’ll just post this as me having some fun with my cartooning. Here’s the cover for the October 26 issue of The Beacher, now available. I had good time with this one. Thanks and apologies to the ghost of Will Elder and his …

Pandemic Painting #93

Turns out Pandemic Painting #93 is being posted on yet another rainy, gloomy day. Well, it IS late October. I suppose it’s in keeping with the day that this painting is a rainy, gloomy dunes scene. I did this as a demonstration for a watercolor class I taught earlier this week at the Michigan City …

Pandemic Painting #94

Happy Halloween, everybody!The extent of my Halloween celebration is here in the form of Pandemic Painting #94. I wanted to do a themed painting for the spooky day and when I looked at Lance Werner‘s photo of a sunset cornfield, I saw my inspiration. There seemed to be monstrous faces lurking in said cornfield, so I …

Pandemic Painting #95

Pandemic Painting #95 shows me that even a not so hot painting can be warmed up with the addition of a monarch butterfly. This one took a left turn at Albuquerque and the bottom half got wiped away with clean water and an angry sponge. I attempted to repaint the lower part, added the butterfly …
