2020 Off to a Colorful Start

Here is what I have been up to: Rural scenes with high horizons. Focusing on composition, I am creating a high focal point in the distance, with a more abstracted entrance to the painting.

Learn To Paint!

I am continuing to teach oil painting from my studio. Send me a note if you have an interest and I will put you on the wait list.


So Many Ways to Learn

Between reading and watching youtube videos, learning is easy! One artist I enjoy is Sarah Sedwick or just search 'oil painting videos.' Another person to keep an eye on is Todd M. Casey. He has a reference book coming out called The Art of Still Life. And Carol Marine has a wonderful little book called Daily Paining. I would be remiss if I did not mention Haidee Jo Summers, the English artist who wrote Vibrant Oils. See what you think and send me any suggestions you have.


Now I understand my dad, a WWII pilot who loved to fly, when he used to say, "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."

Happy Valentines Day!
