Maine Landscape

Dump Truck
$65, click here to purchase

I like the contrast of this rusty, old dumptruck parked in the tall grass on the side of a dirt road set against all the beautiful greens and the bright blue sky. I'm tempted to do this in a much larger and wider format.

going small again

Island at Dawn
4" x 4"
Still sticking with the small landscapes, I thought I'd go outside my box and try to utilize colors I normally don't go to when creating landscapes.

Mini landscape

Water's Edge
4" x 4"
Currently on exhibit
I'm still attempting to sharpen my landscape skills, trying to keep things loose and not overworked. Today's painting has a darker feel than yesterday's, but I like it's simple composition.

Cloud Study

Simple Cloud
4"x4" , oil on stretched canvas

Currently on exhibit

Here's a quick, little cloud study. After working for a few days on a larger landscape I realized I could use some more practice working on clouds. I don't know why I find them so challenging.

Website Launched!

Ok, here's the second pass on this painting, almost there. Thanks to Sandra and Jo-Ann for their tips on how they handle clouds. Jo-Ann had a detailed process that she had posted in her blog awhile ago, very helpful.

I haven't been spending enough time painting lately because I've been spending time setting up my website, which can be found at robhazzard.com . If you think you might be interested in setting one up for yourself try this link to check out the 2 months free trial offer.

Maine Landscape

Hidden Cove
6" x 6", oil on panel
I'm determined to keep plugging away on landscapes, even if it means I have to get through a few dogs, I'll eventually hit one that I'm happy with, right?

Black Eyed Susans

Back to School

4" x 4", oil on canvas


I've noticed that as the Black Eyed Susans hit their peak, it's almost back to school time, woohoo! Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but after all of us being together 24/7 all summer I think it's time for us to see other people.
