Newton County and the Buffalo National River area has beautiful scenery; cool caves, emerald green waters, great hiking, lots of wildlife, peace and serenity, good rock climbing, 4 seasons of beautiful weather, and really interesting and quirky people.  I’m proud to call it home!  Most of our tourists come and float the Buffalo, and then leave.  They don’t know what they’re missing.

The Original Framed 18×24 Oil painting on canvas is for sale at the Nelms Gallery in Jasper.  A limited number of 8×10 prints are available matted, with or without a frame.

I painted this study in oil on paper.  The buttery smoothness of oil paint is unrivaled for skin tones and smooth color transitions.  As much as I love working with oils, the odor of the mediums I like best don’t agree with me.

I’ve always wondered what the difference between a Fiddle and a Violin was. I’ve never gotten a good explanation, so I just figure a violin is for fancy pants city folk, and a fiddle is fer fiddlin’ around.
