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!

Mercury Retrograde Re-do

To the Quiet Place, 2013-2015.
Original plein air painting in oil, alkyd, 6"x8"
As a casual student of astrology, I do pay attention to Mercury retrograde periods and use those weeks to re-do paintings that are unfinished or need an overhaul.

This is a plein air piece that I painted up in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains back in May of 2013. I was never quite satisfied with it. So a few weeks ago, during the recent Mercury retrograde (May 18-June 11), I put the painting back on the easel and reworked the composition and color. I'm much happier with it now.

Thanks for visiting my blog and taking a look at my artwork. Have a great week!
