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!

Last Friday I went to the opening reception of the plein air show at the Mt. Dora Art Center. The exhibit was the final event of last week's Mt. Dora Paint Out. I submitted one plein air painting for the show—"Yellow House, Mt. Dora" which you saw on my October 25 blog.
When I arrived at the opening, I was very pleased to see that my little painting had taken Third Place in the show. Considering that there were many fine plein air paintings in the show, I was surprised and delighted.
Today's post is the reworked version of the Mt. Dora train station that I started in last week's plein air workshop. I returned to the site in the late afternoon on Thursday, and this time got a much better depiction down on the canvas.
Sometimes, when a painting isn't going right, you just have to start over.
