I apologize for the great delay in posting on my blog. I have however been very busy painting and raising a new puppy. I have forgotten how much it is like having a baby and how much time that takes out of a daily schedule. However I did just finish this piece, which is quite reminiscent of a piece I painted 2 years ago called "Stacked". I had a client who wanted it then but it sold and he came back and asked me to paint another. It was a real joy. Oreos and milk are just plain fun to work on. I have another couple of commissions to work on in the next month or so and then a huge project of Food Art for our local elementary school depicting the healthy food that they now serve in the cafeteria.
I especially want to thank all of you who came to my multiple shows in December and January and made it a real pleasure to be an artist! It was my best couple of months ever and I am truly grateful. I will be posting as I paint in the next couple of months and will be fitting in some small works along the way. Once again this year my focus will be large food pieces and I have an exciting show coming up at the end of the year as well as several others. I will post more when it is all official!
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.
