In my eBay days when I was just getting started with my art career I painted a handful of "urban landscape" paintings. Mostly just closely cropped front doors and stairways. In time I moved to still life and have stayed there, until now. Karen and I had recently been in Asheville visiting her sister Robin and her husband, my ex business partner, high school buddy and best friend Michel. When we're there we always spend a good bit of time visiting the local art galleries. As we were entering one of our favorite galleries, Blue Spiral, I was struck by the beauty of the beefy bronze handle on the front door and the reflection of the street in the windows. I took out my phone and took a few shots in case it had some potential as a painting. Back home I downloaded the images and thought to myself, "I've got to try this". Anyway, this is the result. I hope this is something because I'd really like to try it again.

Austin Healey: Complete

I always want to keep going on a painting. Knowing when to stop is one of the hardest aspects of this endeavor, so I asked Karen if it was done and she said, "sign it!".
My next painting is going to be something completely different. I haven't fully committed to it but, I'm moving ahead like it will be. If I can do it, I think it could be cool. We'll see.

The P-40 has finally made the finish line. This paint scheme was utilized by the 343 Fighter Group stationed in the Aleutian Islands in 1941 and commanded by Col. John Chennault, the son of Col. Claire Chennault who had commanded the Flying Tigers in China.
Now comes the challenge of selecting my next subject.

I've been working on a second P-40 for a while now and the underpainting is done. Got a ways to go yet, but if feels like I'm headed in the right direction.
