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.

Calf Half Light
Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel. I went retro for this one. This is the style I used almost exclusivly in '04 & '05. A lot of fun and I like the result. A lot of mushy, colorful, paint....sometimes applied with a painting knife and either left as is or worked into with the brush. The idea is to have an exciting surface texture and exciting under- mixed paint. Hope ya like it!
2 Chronicles 7:14 : If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek m y face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
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!
