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!

Do...and Re-Do

Seeking the Light, 2014
Original oil painting on gessoed  linen panel, 4"x6"

A few weeks ago, I thought this painting was finished and ready to go. As I was scanning and preparing to upload it to this blog and my Daily Paintworks Gallery , I really looked at it and decided it was not ready for "prime time." (Actually, it was downright ugly!)

So back to the studio it went, where I sanded the surface of the linen panel, recomposed the image, and completely redid the painting.

OK, now I am happy with it. And I thank you for taking a look. Have a good day!
