KM2510 A River Runs Through It ( autumn, fall, landscape, original fine art)


This abstracted landscape was rendered using a palette knife and lots of paint giving a very textural finish. The scene is from an area outside of Crested Butte, Colorado near Ohio Pass. This particular Colorado fall was spectacular and the colors in the painting really represent what my eye saw. I hope this year will be as awesome as I plan to go back to Aspen and Crested Butte next month in search of more gold!

KMD2513 Greek Poppies (poppies, red, floral, original fine art)


I wanted to challenge myself with this painting because of the warm reddish wall behind the bright red poppies. Making the poppies stand out against a similar color wall was fun to play all the different temperatures found in red! I was pleased with my result. The poppies, by the way, were found on a ruin in Greece.

KMD2507 Paris Rain (Paris, Europe, urbanscape, rain, original fine art)


I had to jump to Paris for a day. Looking through my lifetime of photos from so many travels I think to myself how fortunate I am to have seen so many wonderful new places in addition to my beautiful Colorado. This photo was taken in Paris while wandering the Opera District and rain showers followed by sun all day. It made for some really romantic reflection subjects.

KMD2509 Jubilant (yellow poppy, floral, landscape, original fine art)


I have been having such fun with the abstracted landscapes
but I decided to go back to my other passion; flowers.
I really love the composition of this scene even though I no
longer remember where the photo was taken, but it probably
was shot at our Botanic Gardens here in Denver. I still strive
to go more simplified, using fewer brushstrokes,
each one applied with purpose. It is really a challenge and
keeps me from getting lazy in my painting approach.

KMD2504 Warm Glow (landscape, original fine art, Southwest)


Another in my series of the landscape abstracted. This was such an amazing scene that I came across several years ago on a trip to Taos. The late afternoon light was magical as it always is in New Mexico. I love the challenge of creating a mood and warm feeling with as few brushstrokes as possible (or palette knife strokes in this case)

KMD2502 Here's Looking at You ( calf, animal, livestock, cow, landscape)

I painted this sweet face from reference taken last February in Hawaii while on Kualoa Ranch, which has been considered from ancient times to be one of the most sacred places on Oahu. It was a privilege to visit and have the time to tour and then stop and do some plein air painting there!

KMD2503 Vast Reaches (landscape, original fine art oil painting)

Here is another in my 8x10" abstracted landscapes. It is a challenge to leave out all but the necessary detail to have it read and be fun for the viewer to engage and stay in the painting. I am loving working with more paint and larger strokes with the palette knife. Now to translate this to a really large canvas!

KMD2501 Mr. Red (rooster, landscape, wildlife, original fine art)

Last spring, while visiting the Texas Hill Country we stopped in Luckenbach, Texas, where Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson changed the face of popular music and country music. Although this is known to be the "Best Dance Hall in Texas" we wandered around the place armed with cameras which is where I found this fellow who did not want to pose for me. He had to give up and stop as I was too persistent for him!

KMD2500 Vast Country (landscape, abstract, Colorado, original fine art)

As part of my daily painting routine I chose to paint this landscape as an abstracted interpretation. I wanted to let the viewer become engaged in the painting with enough information that their own imagination can then keep them engaged to gow wherever it takes them. This was done with heavy paint using a palette knife to create the juicy and textural finish. Enjoy!

KMD2499 Texas Bluebonnets (floral landscape, bluebonnet, original fine art)

I am finally getting back to last spring with the photos I took in the Texas Hill Country where the fields of bluebonnets were a sight to behold. We drove the Willow Creek loop outside of Fredericksburg and were lucky enough to be there at peak bloom. I am anxious to do some larger paintings from that trip as well.
