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 6x6 canvas panel..
This is my contribution to this week's WDEat Wet Canvas. The hostess was Bonnie, and she provided great reference photos.
I believe this is an Old English Sheepdog.
I tried to use the principles of Yin and Yang in this puppy portrait. This means opposite factors. Thick paint versus thin...Light vs dark...Warm vs cool. I also like the ability to look down through the development (layers) of the painting. From the thick finishing strokes right on down to beginning...the bare spots of canvas...with all the development in between. At the moment, I'm happy with how this one turned out.

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!
