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!

New Year's Resolution

Sunset Strip #21: Showtime!, 2011

Original Painting: Oil, alkyd on gessoed wood

3" x 9.5" (unframed)


One of my New Year's resolutions is to use more color when painting. So how's this? Seems to work for this painting, inspired by a stunning Albuquerque sunset I witnessed last September.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a great week.
