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!

Tulips in the Garden

Sunbathers, 2014
Original oil on gessoed panel, 4" x 6"
Available for purchase on  Daily Paintworks 

When painting flowers, I usually depict them in a garden setting—more like a landscape painting than a still life. To me, the flowers always seem more lively shown this way, basking in the sunshine, with blue skies overhead, among their kindred blossoms and greenery.

Tulips in the garden is a favorite subject for me. I hope you enjoy these sunbathers, too!
