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 gessoed hardboard.
The surface is so smooth it's fun to see the thinned acrylic puddle and slide all over it. When it started losing it's slipperiness, I sprayed it with clear acrylic gloss coat...and here we go again! I also used my trusty Faber Castell Pitt Pen.
Loved this little bantam's fearless attitude. Looks like he's gonna shout "I am the GREATEST" ala Ali.
The image for this painting was supplied by Stoney for this week's WDE at Wet Canvas.
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!
