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 gessoed hardwood. This is a San Salvador rock iguana. I see something strangely noble in their appearance...similar to an eagle. They have survived so many countless years only to have their existence threatened...by you know who. The image for this painting was graciously supplied by Lisilk for the WDE at Wet Canvas...Thank you, Li!

2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I was chosen again to receive the Passion For Painting Award by Tom Pohlman. Please do yourself a favor and check out his fine art which is full of great color and style! I won't be relisting the award so soon after having just posted it on the 24th. But thank you, Tom, for the distinct honor!
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!
