"Winter Display"

Always amazes me how many colors are still on display in nature during the winter....

"Winter Grouping"

The other day, my wife and I were out chasing snowballs with our Welsh Corgi, Lucas, in the greenway behind the house....well, Lucas was chasing snowballs, I was trying to make them as quickly as possible even though Lucas was running in circles around me, informing me that I wasn't doing it fast enough...or correctly...or aesthetically proper -- Corgis are quite bossy about these things -- and Kim was trying to film the whole process....

Anyway, after losing the feeling in my hands for about forty-five minutes, I noticed a group of willows that is usually unremarkable during the warmer months (I think....now, we'll have to see....). You can guess what happened....

"Waiting" - paintings and music by William Hoshal

Well, all I can say is that it's time for me to get off my you know what and start posting in here again ...to that end.....

Everything must....

Going through some changes....maybe that's why I haven't been up to posting lately. Happy with some paintings...not so much with others. I'm hoping it will all settle down after the move to Portland....

I felt good about the work I did at the NW Plein Air event, but much less so with the few studies I've done since. The exception has been the roses....lots of work to do there still, but I like the direction so far...

West Coast Travels Part 1

So.....hard to say where to start. We've been on the road for two months now. Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Washington....still compiling notes and thoughts from my hand written scribblings in order to create a blog about the trip. With all the different places, internet access is sometimes sketchy so I figured I have to settle for a few "update" posts and then write some more complete as things wound down. To tide things over, here's a few paintings from the first half of the trip.....

Waiting for the band.....

Couple of new ones today....the first I painted out at a gig in Page Springs. I showed up two hours too early for set-up. Fortunately had my box and a panel with me.....
