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!

Progress Report: NM Morada

New Mexico Morada (work in progress)
Original: oil, alkyd on canvas panel

10 x 8"

It's been a few weeks since I began this painting, and it's now fairly well fleshed out in color and composition. It still needs more paint layers and some refinements, but it's coming along.

Many thanks to all who sent me good wishes via email for the Harwood Open House. And I am especially grateful for the local "fans" who came on Friday evening and visited my studio. It was a great evening, with wall-to-wall "arts crawlers." I also met several new folks and sold a few paintings, too.

I did get my studio all spiffed up in time for the event, although it wasn't even safe to open the closet door. Then it took me most of Saturday to get the studio back to a working space again. Creativity and orderliness are definitely opposites!

Have a good week. See you Thursday.
