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.

Acrylic on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
I'm still on a little explorative jaunt. I'm trying to go to places I've never gone before in acrylics...funny...just had a flash back of Star Trek, heh. My mission is to push the envelope of contrast until the light makes you squint. That's why there are extreme darks here...they are needed to express the bright light. Must go now...I'm informed we have Klingons approaching at warp speed.
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!
