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 7x5 archival canvas panel. This painting is an experiment for me. Some areas have multiple layers of thinned acrylic...other ares are thick and opaque. That's the fun part of using acrylics...the layering can be done in one quick setting. I changed the lighting from the reference plus idealized the colors.
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!
