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!

After Sunset

WIP: Night Palm
Oil, alkyd on panel

Since last week's post, I've "finished" two paintings which are pretty ugly (to use an oxymoronic description). 

Fortunately, a photograph taken by my granddaughter when she was vacationing in Jamaica inspired me to work up the painting posted for today. It's not quite "there" yet, but coming along. Sometimes 1 out of 3 is just part of the learning curve.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a good week.
