These poppies are so great that I'm trying to capture them as many times as I can while I have them to paint from life. I love the blue shine coming in from my window catching a few edges here and there.
I am an artist living on an island in the pacific Northwest. For the past year I having been painting exclusively in oils, mostly on board but also some canvas. For a few years prior to this, I painted furniture with acrylics in a style reminiscent of art from Oaxaca, Mexico. For many , many years before that, I was a professional french horn player. Life circumstances made me choose to put my instrument down permanently and this blog is evidence of my creative spirit coming out in different form. I love the practice of daily painting and after all the years in classical music, daily practice feels essential to art as much as it did to music.
All paintings are sold unframed with an option for framing.
Contact me for more information or if you are interested in a painting listed in the archive. Some works are in galleries and some are still available. I try to mark what has been sold right away after a show.
