Continuing the Journey

As time passes, things transition, including how we share things with individuals across the world. With that said, I'm working on building a new website and blog so you can continue to follow me, my work and my family.

My hopes for this blog is not only write new posts but to transition old ones over from my old website. Thank you for your patience as this process is being completed.

Studio Time

I've been traveling a lot to share my paintings at various art shows. It's always great traveling, meeting people and taking in the scenery of the area I'm visiting. However, nothing compares to being at home in my studio, as well as, spending time with my lovely wife and daughter.

With that said, I thought I'd share a few photos of me painting in my studio. Enjoy and as always, feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions about my work and what I do.

Thanks for visiting!

Gathering Inspiration

One of my favorite things to do while out traveling to shows is capturing pictures of clouds in the sky and trees. Most of you who know me know that most of my paintings capture the beauty of both of these. Recently, I was at a show in Colorado and the combination of the fresh snow on the ground with trees scattered about, were amazing to me.

Here are just a few of those photos. Who knows? Maybe you'll spot one or two of these in my future paintings!

My Painting Process

We all have our beginnings and you can check out some of mine here. Before I begin a painting, I typically draw out a few sketches to help get the creative juices flowing.

Practically all of my paintings begin with a sketch, and here are some of my most developed sketches. I typically sketch around 300-500 pieces per year and produce about 300 finished oil works.
