I have been working like to a champ to plow through these new oil paintings, and although none of the new north/west paintings are complete, I am too excited to not share the journey. Since 2004 I have been painting in acrylics, trying to obtain the look and feel of oil, and it has … Continue reading North and West (now in oils)
It feels so good to be out of my creative-rut. Although now I am being challenged in new ways. You may have read my last blog "Revival of the Arts" where I share my first (real) attempt with oil painting.

It's just a few new ideas I am transitioning into... planning my trip to Iceland (tons of paperwork involved in that), prepping for the … Continue reading New Adventures
My first break-through in painting happened after I visited Jasper, Alberta (Canada). The Rocky Mountains blew my mind, and I came home with a clear vision and drive to paint. My 2015 show was small, and almost a complete sell out (I still have the largest one hanging in my living room!). Over the last … Continue reading Artist Dreams | Iceland
