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!

Albuquerque Rooftops #1

Hello, Dear Readers,

The weeks have flown by, and I finally arrived in Albuquerque 12 days ago. I am fortunate to once again be renting living space from my dear friend Sondra. And, just 48 hours after arriving in town, I obtained a studio at the Harwood Art Center. How lucky can one person be?

While setting up my workspace Saturday afternoon, I took time to do a drawing on the Boogie Board. I was attracted to the view out my second floor studio window, which overlooks the rooftops in the neighborhood with the Sandia Mountains in the distance--a beautiful sight in the late afternoon light.

Once the drawing was finished, I uploaded it to the computer and developed three different variations. The version posted today is the "original", after a few tweaks in Photoshop. I'll share the other two versions with you later this week.

Thanks for taking a moment to read this post. Enjoy your day.
