The bottom photo it s picture of a painting I did after a visit to an old abandoned gold mind in Searchlight,m Nevada. and the top pic is of a painting from a trip to the South rim of the Grand Canyon.
The top painting is of the "DUCK ON THE ROCK" formation.
the top painting is done at one of my favorite places to watch a sunrise in Aberdeen, Mississippi. That is at the Aberdeen lock and dam. This is a sunrise behind the dam.
The bottom painting is done from a photo I made in the early 60's it shows a sunset behind one of the building at the old munitions plant near Prairie, Mississippi. That plot of land still leaves an uneasy feeling within me.
This painting is a scene from my trip to Scottsdale, Az. several years ago. My first trip to Az. and i could finally see what those skies that I had only experienced in Arizona Highways mag. was really like.
This was near a place called Papoga Rock. A large rock formation with a big hole in it.
The top picture is a painting of a sunset at the Louvre in Paris , France. The pyramid is the newest addition to the museum. It was designed by I.M. Pei and caused a lot of confusion and discourse when revealed a few years back. For those that do not know I.M. Pei was the architect that did the Crystal Bridge in Oklahoma City.
The bottom picture is of a painting looking down the street where my brother lived when Nina and I visited him in Reilingen, Germany.
The top photo is a painting of a sunset with the Balloons coming in after a day at the Oklahoma City Balloon Fest sometime in the late 70's. and the bottom photo is a painting done earlier the same morning as the balloons were taking off at sunrise.
The first painting is a scene from rural Duncan, Oklahoma. I was at a truck auction there when the sun started to set. I knew that the shapes of the surrounding trucks and structures would make a great silhouette picture.
The second painting is not in Giza, Egypt but rather at the LUXOR in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm sure it's not the same thing and I hope to one day experience the Giza version.
The top pic. is a painting of a sunset as seen from underneath the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the bottom pic. is a painting of a sunset in the late afternoon behind a barn and a windmill from western Oklahoma. Near Merritt, Oklahoma.
In the first painting you won't see any pelicans but they are there. This is a scene from Pelican Point in Southern Alabama. In fact it is believed to be the farthest point south you can go and still be in Alabama. It is somewhere near Fairhope and Daphne, Alabama.
In the 2nd painting you can seed two giants (mountains) lying on top of the ground, just waiting to rise up and take over the world once again. These are just two of the hundreds of this type formations you can find all over southwest Oklahoma. These are near Mangum, Oklahoma. The small one to the right is two-three miles beyound the front one.
The top painting was observed very early one morning when I got up early and looked out the window while working at the Quartz Mountain Fall Art's Institute about two years ago. You couldn't tell where the sky and the water separated except for the small strip of land on the other side of the lake.
that is Lake Lugert in Altus, Oklahoma. It looked like a really shinny mirror.
The bottom painting is a scene from standing at the end of my driveway and looking down the street about 5 p.m. one day just before one of our very bad tornadoes. I had never seen the clouds so dark and swirling around the great yellow sunset sky. Also notice the bright orange on the horizon. It was very scary yet SO beautiful.
