About The Artist

My photo
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!

Blue Gate: Winter

Winter Gate (WIP)
Oil, alkyd on canvas, 10x8"

Since last week's post, it has turned snowy and wintry in New Mexico. This change of weather has put me in the mood to paint snow.

Today's post shows the beginning stage of a new painting based on the photo posted a few weeks ago on December 31.

This image may also seem familiar since I painted a warm and sunny version a year ago, called "Blue Gate" posted on January 19, 2009. Already the new painting has a much cooler tone. It will be fun to compare the two paintings when this one is completed.

Have a good week. See you next time.
