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!

A Peaceful Place...

Elena Gallegos, oil on panel, 5x7”, $145
On exhibit thru June 2, at Sacred Arts Gallery
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Albuquerque
The Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque are special to me—a quiet peaceful place to rest, rejuvenate my spirit, recharge my inspiration, and to paint. So today’s post—in honor of Easter and Spring—is a painting of Elena Gallegos, one of my favorite places in the Sandias.
