2014 Desktop Calendars now available

2014 Calendar

Merry Christmas! So 2014 is almost here…make sure you know what dates are coming up with these desktop calendars featuring my artwork. It’s the first product I’ve made and I’m pleased with how they came out. Each comes with 7 double-sided cards plus 2 bonus mini prints. Sit two next to each other for an extended view of the future. I’ve made them available through a new shop which you can see a link to on the side menu. They make a nice gift, keep the spirit of giving going after the holidays  ; )

The Butte from Amazon Park

The Butte From Amazon Park

Little gap in the vegetation gave a nice view to Spencer’s Butte across the running trail in Amazon Park. Painted as the seasons were changing; the bits and pieces of this scene resemble the way it looked on different days. The clouds were putting on a show on the day I started this. Acrylic on canvas 16″ x 20″. In outer world.

Cross Campus – landscape painting in Eugene

Cross campus

Had the chance to start painting outside again, now in Eugene, OR. This is a view through the University of Oregon campus towards the new Matthew Knight Arena, home to the UO basketball team. More from Eugene to come. Acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″. Part of the outer world gallery.

The Rabbit at Cloud Gate

A painting for my Grandfather, Joe Rodgers, who often drew the “lucky rabbit” while serving in WWII in the navy to illustrate the boat’s travels.  This painting was brought to the 2012 reunion in Chicago.  He would bring similar paintings to the reunions in the past but has stopped this practice in recent years.  I chose to put the rabbit (Bugs) in front of Cloud Gate, the public sculpture by Anish Kapoor because it was my favorite site when I visited Chicago a few years back.
