These images have almost disappeared from the Illinois landscape. They are now archeological icons of another era where I grew up in central Illinois.  I chose to paint this image as an antique item from that vanishing landscape.

It feels good to be back in the studio after a long absence due to health issues and recent recuperative travel. This painting shows some experimentation with ways to incorporate my early abstract expressionist style without giving up realism. It’s a discipline that I’ll continue to explore. Also recent travel to China, Cambodia and Vietnam may show up in future paintings. Keep tuned to my blog and see what happens.

We traveled for almost a month in this area and photographed and painted many images. This was painted in early morning with a view of the Tetons from the east side. I was overwhelmed by the immense space and light of these magnificent mountains.

SOLD

 This Little House Wren has been greeting me on the deck post while I'm having my morning tea. While he was building his nest nearby he would sing his song all day but now I think he is too busy feeding his family, so I don't see him so often. I haven't discovered his nest, he keeps it well hidden because there is a lot of other wildlife around.

On The Edge: by Paul Wolber

             On The Edge: Swallow Scouting for a New Nest Site

6" x 8" (15.2 cm x 20.3 cm) original acrylic painting on board $125 w/free shipping in US and Canada

The vivid colors of the swallow’s cobalt blue feathers against the reds of the stucco wall caught my attention and drew me to create this painting. I like capturing the moment when some action or movement is about to happen. It’s what draws me into the next painting.

Mute Swan with Cygnets: Kensington Park, London



                  Mute Swan with Cygnets: Kensington Park, London

This painting is a further development of a posting from July 12, 2012. I decided to go back and rework parts of the painting and replace the additional two swimming birds with cygnets (young swans) to make the painting more unified. The cygnets remind me of the constellation Cygnus going all the way back to Greek mythology and in todays’ astronomical study has many stars with known planets with some thought to be in the habitable zone of their stars. So this painting has more meaning for me than might be apparent just on the surface.
