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!

Chicken Door

Here's my first completed painting since settling into my New Mexico studio. The dappled light of the late afternoon sun on this adobe wall was appealing to me and fun to work up with loose brushstrokes. I also loved the way the light skimmed across the tops of the marigolds in the foreground.

Thanks for taking a moment to look at my painting. If you would like to leave a comment, please do so by clicking the COMMENTS link below.

Have a great day! See you Wednesday.
