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!

To purchase contact Artist

A few weeks ago, Tricia Courtney, an artist-friend of mine in Joplin, Missouri, called and invited me to exhibit work at a new gallery that she and her sister are opening, the Rose Gallery of Fine Art.

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you may recall that I lived in that area a few years ago, and last summer returned to Joplin for my a one-person exhibit at Spiva Center for the Arts. The folks in Joplin—including all my dear relatives in the area—have always been supportive of me, and I was especially fortunate to meet many dedicated and talented artists like Tricia and the artists who will be showing in the gallery.

So I am very happy to be included in this new commercial venture, which just open to public last week. Sunfilled Moment, posted above, is one of the four pieces I shipped to Joplin. It's a color pencil drawing I did a few years ago while living in Missouri.

The gallery is located at 508 N. Range Line Road (just north of the mall, if you're familiar with Joplin), and the phone number of 417.782.7177. Drop in and see the new place.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a good week.

Thank you for your nice comment. I visited your website and see that you have a keen interest in drawing. Strong drawing takes a lot of practice, and there is always something more to learn. Keep up the good work.
