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!

Friday's Flowers #2

"Blue" 2014. Original painting, oil, alkyd on canvas panel. 6" x 4"
It will be a while before the morning glories return, sprawling over the adobe wall where I live. In the meantime, I enjoyed painting this little piece of summer light, blessing the flowers.

Thank you for taking a moment to view my blog. Enjoy your weekend.

Friday's Flower Painting....

"Basking in the Light" 2014. Original oil painting on 4"x6"panel.

I enjoy buying and painting flowers the most during the winter, when there's not as much color in the landscape. Besides, it reminds me that Spring is coming.

This painting was listed for auction earlier this week on the Daily PaintWorks (DPW) site and selected as a "DPW Facebook Pick of the Day" on Wednesday, February 19 (https://www.facebook.com/dailypaintworks). So that was a nice little honor for it to receive.

Thanks for taking a look. Enjoy your work day and the weekend ahead. Spring is coming!
