A Grateful Heart

Today and everyday I try to keep a grateful heart, lest I lose that which I value most.

On the Beach

In the past I've often been really dissapointed with my plein air beach scenes. I realized recently that one of the problems was too cool of a palette. Here I warmed things up considerably. I can't wait to have a go at it again. 8x10

SOLD Retitled from work in progress: White's Bog. After finishing this I really wanted to give it a more spiritual title. Nature makes me feel that way. 20x16

Studio Show December 6th


My 7th annual Studio art show this year is set for December 6th. I find it hard to believe that I've already done six of these open house shows...the first two were tentative starts where I sold mainly small paintings of snowmen and other whimsical subjects. Not at all in sequence with the past four...chronologically or stylistically. This year I will be featuring a small series of 4x6 winter scenes, slightly remeniscent of those first holiday themed works from the mid 1990s.

Karen Painting

My good friend Karen went with me to go painting at Birch Grove Park. She occasionaly models for me. Each time she does, she earns credit towards a painting of mine that she wants. You're almost there Karen! Thanks for beautiful afternoon.
