The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

January 3, Portrait of a videographer

Pioneer Public Television's "Prairie Yard and Garden" came to tape a show at the vinegary last summer. Roger Boleman has been the show's producer,videographer and editor for the last 23 years. I took photos of him and the rest of the crew as they were taping Ron's segment of the show. I wrote about them for the Senior Perspective and you'll find it in this month's issue. You might also find it at I used a photo of Roger to accompany the article. I like the photo and used it as reference for today's daily painting.

This painting is 11" X 14" and as per my method of pricing, day 3, $30.



  1. Wow! It looks so real, at first I thought it was the photograph! You are amazing!

  2. Glad you like it. I think it came together pretty well.

  3. This is awesome. You should send it to Prairie Yard and Garden. When does that air by the way?

  4. Thank you. The host of the show, Larry Zilliox, checked out the painting. He approved. The show with the vinegary segment will be March 18, 7:30 p.m.

  5. I think the way you've captured (do paint artists capture or is that a photography term?)the light here is magnificent.
