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. I tried pre mixing most my colors before starting to apply any paint. I thought I'd give this method a try. A very good artist that I've been watching uses this method. His name is Frank Gardner...you can see him here. It sped the process somewhat, but I tended to keep adding and changing the colors as I painted. I felt I wound up painting just like I have for the last trillion years. You all know the story about old dogs and new tricks,heh. Pre mixing is a commendable method....I'll have to do more to get it down properly. Thanks, Frank! Happy Eastereveryone!! Available Email me to inquire about purchasing
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!
