About The Artist

Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Home Sweet Home

John & Mary's Back Porch, 2008
Oil, alkyd on canvas panel
10" x 8"

Today's painting is of another home in the Eola Heights historic neighborhood of Orlando, where I painted with the Central Florida Plein Air Artists last April. The owners were most gracious to allow me to setup and spend a lovely spring day in their yard. And they purchased the painting, too!
I am still working on another painting from my travels in Italy. It is larger (9x12") and is taking a bit longer to complete than the smaller panels I have been working on. I hope to post it on Wednesday.
Thanks for looking and have a really good day.

Precious back porch! Is that a face on the tree trunck in the background?
Lucky John and Mary, for getting a custom piece of yours for a steal!
