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.

Strut Your Stuff-Rooster
Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Lin was the hostess who supplied this great reference photo!
I picked the fancy rooster. Chickens were a very common subject to me a few years ago. It's nice to try one once more.
I've been surfing the blogs as usual. One thing that was mentioned quite a bit was using enough paint. And I came across this quote by John Singer Sargent: "No small dabs of colour - you want plenty of paint to paint with." I have been guilty of being stingy with paint...so this time my mounds of color were a little more generous.

My Etsy 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing 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!
