On this venture of mine I plan to do a number of things. To post paintings which are for sale...to post a daily painting...and show some works in progress( demos). The art will be in Oils with an Acrylic sneaking in now and then.

Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel. So many have attempted the Matterhorn (climbing) and failed...I thought, " What the hey....I can attempt it...if I fail it's just a messed up canvas...not a 4,000ft. drop!" Hope ya like it. Just as a side note: it sure is winter in Ohio. We had sub zero wind chills yesterday. Today it's snow and ice coming down. I realize there are plenty of you out in cyber-land who have it much worse. Ah...but the swallows are leaving Capistrano to return. And the weather man said spring is now advancing from Florida toward the north at the rate of 15 miles per day.

I enjoy painting all subjects. To cause a viewer to pause and see the beauty in even a mundane object. But I must admit my special interest is animals of all sorts.
While I did attend the Columbus College of Art And Design for one year, I am largely self taught. My main contemporary influences are Richard Schmid and Scott Burdick.
Hope you enjoy my art, and please feel free to comment, or email me ...I'd love to hear your questions or thoughts!
