The House Finch (Print with Remarque)

Click here to purchase.

This is a print of an older oil painting I did a few years ago. It's framed with a 'Remarque' drawn on the mat. A remarque is a small drawing or painting on a print. In this case I decided to place it on the mat.

The LORD of the RINGS Landscapes

Please click on the image above to enlargen.
My interests in art are quite varied. I know that common thought is to 'brand' oneself with one style, or one subject matter or one 'mode' of working but I just can't do it. Since graduating from art school many years ago I've maintained an interest in Science Fiction/Fantasy literature and movies. I also have a strong interest in nature, hence my bird paintings, as well as the traditional artistic subjects of landscape and still life. Therefore, at least for the moment, I'll be incorporating all of my visual work into this initial Blog until I decide to separate my various subjects into different blogs. Why do we really need to Brand ourselves anyways? I doubt even cattle like that. These are very small oil paintings on gessoed, heavy weight printmaking paper. They measure 2 1/2 x 7 inches. I've also produced many paintings for 'Small-Works' and Miniature exhibits for galleries. These paintings incoporate many of my interests in one.

This painting measures 5 x 7 inches, oil on canvas panel. Sometimes the most common, every-day objects make wonderfully colorful subjects for a simple still life...

I enjoy the abstract shapes that shadows create from a strong light source. This plate of Figs was in direct sunlght, it also created some warm reflections.

"High Flyer"

Click Here to Bid
Earlier this Autumn I was in the mountains of New England looking for interesting subjects to paint when a large, colorful hot air balloon came up over the hills and almost landed in the field I was standing in. This was one of the more dramatic images from the experience.
