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!

Revisiting Coronado

Plein Air Landscape Sketch #12, 2015.
Oil on cartonboard, mounted on panel. 5"x7"
A couple of weeks go, I joined the Monday Painters at Coronado State Monument for a morning of plein air painting. It was warm and hazy, with clouds overhead. We've been having more rain than usual, so the Sandia Mountains are green with vegetation, looking velvety from a distance.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! Enjoy your special day tomorrow.–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
