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...

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.

Usually late afternoon and early morning gives us the best time to find objects in dramatic shadow. I greatly enjoy what light does and wanted to capture the long shadows being cast against the wallfrom this red flower. This was from the late afternoon. It is 7 x 5 inches on canvas panel and available for auction.

I'm back at my Blog after a long hiatus. The first painting that I've decided to return with is a small still life that's available for auction by clicking Here. The morning sunlight drapes behind this M & M Cookie Jar in my kitchen creating an almost surreal cartoonish dimension. It's oil on canvas panel. If you're visiting my Blog please feel free to leave a comment.
I'm very happy to annouce that my painting listed below, entitled "Iron Man" was accepted into the Greenwich Workshop Gallery "Small Works" 2008 exhibit. To view it please click here. There are some excellent works in this exhibit.
