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 hardboard.
Here's my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The photo was provided by Gail.
I first covered the board with black gesso. Love that stuff!
I recall doing this same ref on April 25, 2008. I also believe it was when Gail was hosting. So, I thought I might do better the second time around. Don't know if I did but it was fun doing this one again.
With Thanksgiving a short time away I imagined these wise birds as doing some training in jogging and evasive tactics.

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!
