About The Artist

My photo
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!

White Blossoms, Version 2

"White Blossoms, Blue Sky," 2016. Original mixed media on panel, 6"x6". Available: Contact Artist.

Back in September I posted a different "White Blossoms" painting, one with a bright yellow background.

Today's image is a different version of "White Blossoms" with a background of blue. It's painted with gouache on rice paper, overlaid with color pencil and accented with metallic gold. Rather cheerful, I think, considering the wintry weather some folks are experiencing today.

Thank you for taking a moment to visit my blog. Enjoy your weekend.

January Tulip

By the Window, 2015, original oil on panel, 6"x6."  Available: Contact Weyrich Gallery, Albuquerque, NM
Here's the flower painting I promised to share with you 'way back in November. The painting will be in the exhibit "Windows to the World" at the St. Michael's Gallery here in Albuquerque, at 601 Montano NW. The show opens tomorrow (reception from 6-8pm) and continues until February 10. Please come by the opening reception if you're in the area!

I have been out of town for the past two months—due to a family emergency—and then the holidays. Now that I am back in town, I'm thrilled to be working in my studio again!

Thank you for taking a moment to visit my blog. And belated "Happy New Year" greetings to all my faithful readers! I appreciate your support.
