Oil Painting: My Other Hobby

My interest in photography began as a means to capture subjects for oil paintings and watercolors. As my free time became limited as often happens in life, I found my self enjoying photography more than painting and ended up doing very little painting for a number of years. A few years ago I started paining again when my oldest son asked if I would do a painting for the house that he and his wife had just purchased. Being retired I also had more free time so doing the requested painting encouraged me to do a few more more paintings. Photography continues to be my main interest but I am spending more of my time painting than I have in years. Many of my paintings are of local scenes and are displayed and available for sale at Original Frameworks in Blacksburg, Virginia. With the exception of Red Rock Cathedral (2007), all paintings in this gallery are recent and have been painted since November 2017.
