About The Artist

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!

Sunset Strip #9

Sunset Strip #9, 2011
Original Painting: Oil, alkyd on gessoed wood 
6" x 3" unframed

For the past three days, I thought this painting was done. The acid test seems to be putting it on the scanner. Somehow, unresolved areas are easier to detect by looking at the scanned image on the computer monitor than just looking at the painting. Go figure.

For today, I am calling it "finished."
