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!

I've returned from my Missouri exhibition and Thanksgiving in Memphis to absolutely beautiful 75 degree weather in Florida, where the flowers are in bloom and little oranges are ripening on the tree in the yard. Considering the cold weather and snow in other parts of the country, I certainly do understand why folks flock to this land of the palms!

Speaking of palms, I am posting the final version of the three palm studies I worked on (and reworked!) during the summer. The three separate paintings are now configured as a single artwork.

On the Street Where I Live, as shown above, is included in my current exhibit at artCentral in Carthage, Missouri, which ends tomorrow (Sunday, December 5). Many thanks to all my friends and family who attended the opening or have dropped by to see the exhibit. I appreciate your support!
