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 DPW's The Crowd Challengeposted by Carol Marine . Carol posted a photo of a rather large crowd at a restaurant. We were asked to select and paint a part of it.
I selected a really close crop of a couple sharing a drink, perhaps after lunch. This one stokes curiosity. Being faceless, they could be anyone we choose them to be...me...or you...or friends that we know. The painting's intent is to invite the viewer into a private moment to search and question.
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!
