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!

Almost There

Sitting on the Fence
Original Painting
Oil & Alkyd on Panel
6" x 8" unframed

Thanks to a quick and helpful critique from my artist friend Sondra Diepen, this little painting is finally coming along.

The shadow on the fence has been restored, but not nearly as dark as the original version, providing more drama and contrast to the entire piece. Then, too, I deepened and refined the greens of the leaves. You can check back to my posts on December 4 and 11 for the first and second versions.

Sometimes it just takes me awhile to pull it together. Just a few more minor corrections, that is one will be "there."

Thanks for following along. Have a fun weekend getting ready for the holidays. See you Monday.

I'm glad you restored the shadow on the fence and I can see it crossing through.
This whole slant gives the fence the feel of donning a shawl with a flower!
Love the colors so elegant :)
