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!

White Blossoms

White Blossoms, 2015. Gouache on ricepaper, mounted on panel. 6"x6"

Last year I was pleased to become a "Rainmaker" in the Small Works Auction, an annual fundraiser in support of the George A. Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin, Missouri. An artist receives this designation when his/her artwork receives a bid of $300 or more during the auction.

The painting posted on my blog today is a small version (6x6 inches) of "White Blossoms", a 12x12 inch painting submitted to this year's Small Works Auction at Spiva. Both versions are painted in gouache on rice paper, mounted on panel. In both versions, the rice papers have bits of leaves embedded in the paper fibers which are part of the composition and surface texture.

Thanks for taking a moment to visit my art blog. I've been on the road for over a month, visiting my mother who just celebrated her 92nd birthday. (And she looks great for her age!)
