The Fairway Wood - Oil on 11x 14 Canvas Panel
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
The Fairway Wood - Thought I would try something different, at least for me, here and attempt some greens. Toning them down work properly within a landscape is a new thing for me. I'd like to do more in the future, but who knows???? Your comments are welcome.
As a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me.
I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Since then I've lived in Kansas, Texas and presently in California. Now, 50+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth.
This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same.
