About The Artist

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!

A friend of mine is river canoeing this week with a group of her boating pals. They'll be up near Bluff, Utah, camping along the way for several days.

I know that they'll be enjoying stunning vistas and awesome canyons like the image pictured on today's post—a large drawing I did almost 10 years ago that still awakens in me the stillness and grandeur of the vast and varied Southwest landscape that I find so thrilling.

Thanks for taking a quick look. Have a good Friday and a great weekend. See you Monday.

BOO!!! I found you...

Didn't I tell you I was/am good at finding trouble? ;] And all I was looking for was a Spiva entry form... I hear the cats now. ;]

Life is not as much fun without you around, no joke.
