DAILY DIAPER #102


SOLD
My daily shot (or what's left of it!)

CLEANER DIAPERS!!!!


Here is the next installment for this blog. During my days watching my Maddie, I have to fit studio time in where I can. During naps I have generally enough combined time to spend on producing 5x5" miniature oils on panel. These will have a bit more polish to them, giving them a cleaner look than the landscapes (No worries I am still going to paint those as well.) They will all be 5x5" oils on panel and each auction will start at $50.00 (the cleaner the finish, the greater the time, the bigger the stack of pennies must be unfortunately.) Good luck, thank you for your support, and enjoy.


PS: Maddie thanks you too!

DAILY DIAPER #89


SOLD
A scene from around Mount Adams Cincinnati. Always love painting the distant hills and trees you get when looking at one of these diving hills in this area.

DAILY DIAPER #88



SOLD
A fairly common scene down in Pleasant Hill KY during the spring and summer. The trees are almost backlit during this time of day!

DAILY DIAPER #87


SOLD

The negative shapes the sky makes next to the buildings always brings me back to these alleyway paintings.

The sun setting on Falcon Lake where I did some fishing this past year in TX.

DAILY DIAPER #83

SOLD


There was a line of dozers and dump trucks out in a field all by themselves . . . it looked almost like a giant kid came by and dropped his toys in the bright sunlight and kept on truckin'.

MADELYN MAE BURT 10/13/10


Here she is, all of our hard work . . . (Jen's 9 1/2 months and my 90 seconds:).

HOSPITAL UPDATE

I am typing this as I sit next to Jen in our delivery room. She's begining to have contractions and we are slowly but surely getting into the business end of this little adventure. I can't believe 9 + months have passed so quickly. In the coming months I'll continue to get these little paintings on here (these might be all I have time for initially.) I also want to thank everyone that has bid on and purchased paintings over the past months. More to come . . . . including a new addition to the Burt household.

DAILY DIAPER #81



SOLD
On a drive to Owneton KY I saw a group of these buses parked and waiting for school to get out, and since I hadn't painted one in a while, thought it might be fun.

DAILY DIAPER #80




SOLD

A wonderfully warm light, just before the sun drops below the trees, illuminated the entire scene in Terrace Park.

DAILY DIAPER #74


SOLD


A local bar in downtown Cincinnati all lit up one night right at dusk. These guys are always fun and a bit challenging with all that light popping in the night.

DAILY DIAPER #73


SOLD
A little wet pavement and some crazy dark clouds made for an ominous dusk.

DAILY DIAPER #72

SOLD
This piece came from some reference shots that I took down in TX. It has a bit of a cinematic feel to it.

This was a scene from a local park when we had a few bearable nights of cooler weather.

DAILY DIAPER #70

SOLD
Painting night scenes is hard enough but when you add in all the ambient and artificial light that bounces around the piece comes down to trying to represent only the most crucial shapes that you see. The lights almost overwhelm your eyes so you have to look away every now and then just to clear the "sunspots" out.



DAILY DIAPER #69



SOLD


I have always been interested in painting the effects of light during the nighttime. This scene is close to my home very late on a very hot night, which we've had a bunch of late.

A small study for a larger painting of the KY side of the Ohio River on a day when the clouds just seemed enormous.

DAILY DIAPER #67



SOLD


This scene was painted for a photo that I snapped while up in BC on a fishing trip a few years back. This is very typical of what I like to do with my landscapes. . . take an image be it from life or photo and stretch it to what I want it to be, rather than trying to accurately note every detail.

DAILY DIAPER #66


SOLD
I have always been a fan of old cars, though I've never owned one. Too much time and money can get sunk into one of those things but they are wonderful to look at. This little lady was sitting on the side of a residential street all by its lonesome. . . candy apple red gleaming in the sun, and the canopy of trees made for a very paintable scene.

DAILY DIAPER #65


SOLD
Very close to my house, this had one of my all time favorite subjects to paint. . . a blistering hot sunet falling behind the landscape. If you've ever tried to paint one of these plein air you know you need to move fast fast fast.

Another of downtown Cincy . . . this time with some turn signals flashing!

I have paintined a few of these small street scenes now and I have to say they are always among my personal favorites . . . becuase it's truly what I see everyday in my own neighborhood. Paintings, in my opinion, are only %50 done when the artist signs them, it takes the viewer and his or her experiences, to finish the last %50.

Another street scene from downtown Cincinnati. One of the great things about painting in downtown Cincy is you get a nice mix of buildings mixed in with the landscape sue to the hills and river valley that just up in the backgrounds.
