So, I recently got the annual "Can you do a t-shirt really quick for us" request, this year for an LDS Young Women camp.  This one actually did come together rather quickly, and I was quite pleased with the result. Special thanks to the amazing art director (a.k.a. my lovely wife.)

I have found that the more last-minute the request, the more it is guaranteed to be accompanied with the caveat of "it doesn't need to be fancy, just something simple". Right...  Of course, no one has ever yet emailed me and said "Can you design a crappy t-shirt for us, please?" I'll keep waiting for that email.

More paintings

Here are a few more recent paintings. The farm machinery is a commission (not a great photo of it, I'll take a better one soon), the figure painting was a two-session pose, and the plein air was a piece I did at Sagamore Hill for the competition this past weekend.  Onward and upward!

Sagamore Hill paint-out

I participated in a plein-air 'paint-out' this past weekend, and it was great fun. Here is one of pieces that I did, and it was really fun. It was held at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, which was Teddy Roosevelt's home for many years. Quite a lovely spot. I have a few more paintings I did which I'll post soon.
