A collection of updates, recent information and things that inspire me.


Kubby, 10"x8" oil on aluminum panel. I finally finished Kubby, I did a in progress shot a while back but it takes some time for the painting to be ready to photograph. The painting has to be completely dry in order to do a light retouch varnish which is necessary to bring out the color and contrast. A painting never really looks better than while you are painting it, over the next few weeks the colors sink in and dull as they dry and become matte, so a varnish of some kind is important because the painting pops back to life. So here is the painting looking bright and new.
