About The Artist

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!

"Assembly Required"

I've been in the studio this week, working—not with paints and brushes—but with screw drivers and Allen wrenches.

For Christmas, my son and his family gave me an art table, which has been in the box—Assembly Required—in the back of my car for the drive back to New Mexico after New Year's.

Monday, I decided, was the day to tackle this project. The box was too heavy for me to carry up to the second floor, so I made a few trips until I got all the parts into the studio. It took about 3 hours to put the table together. Actually, it went together pretty well, thanks to good photos and clearly written directions.

It's nicely made, and the top can be adjusted from flat to various degrees of slant. Cool! I'm really happy with it and look forward to using it.

Thanks, Kids. I appreciate the nice gift!

PS: The painting hanging above the art table is Salado Cathedral, oil and alkyd on panel, 30” x 30”. The painting is part of my Ancient Sherd Series and was exhibited  at the Harwood Art Center in the "What Remains" show during April, 2012.

Thanks for taking a look. Enjoy your day.
