more sonoma plein air. These four were painted on last friday. I so loved painting the combine in the hay field. I see it sitting there amongst the half shorn fields, awaiting the farmer's return. The contrast of shapes and colors just knocks me out. The cows were just fun to sketch as they walked, and the barn was a shot at making noon time look interesting. Shapes are the driver at that time of day.

Mr Pyle,

I have been admiring your work for some time now and I was pleasantly surprised to see your post on Leif's Blog.

I must have caught Robert on a bad day...he was in retrospect visiting his son and as a father I can see how that can set you off. ;v)

I was meaning to make it to the Sonoma PA to see you guys and to meet Jim Lamb ( I love his stuff ) but I was working on an illustration project...drat. We probably haave friends in common..I had classes with Paul& Tia Kratter, classes with Craig Nelson and yes... I am an Art Center Guy.

Frank, Pleasure to meetcha, even in the world of cyberspace. Jim Lamb is such a wonderful painter, I was with him at SPA and had his crazy talented son, Tim, as a student. He is now at Dreamworks. Craig, Paul, and Tia are all friends. In fact, Craig and I are painting at a University event at DeLoach Vineyards June 1 and 2. You have studied with some really talented artists!. As for the crotchety Heindel? Yeah, maybe it was a bad day. We all find our styles slipping away from us as the markets change and once you have tasted great success to have that happen , well.....
Say! At least you and I are still makin' deadlines! In the middle of SPA I was finishing a magazine cover. OOOOHhh those late nights.
