Driving for about 8 hr and just on the edge of town I didn't feel like looking for the best deal, I pulled in to the closest one, "The Star Motel" clean room and decent coffee it was a done deal for me. Side note, if and when you watch the little movie, you will see that I am painting over or on top of a previous one hour post that obviously I didn't care for, specially after reworking it three times. I new it was time to use it as a good undercoat for this that you are seeing now : )
This 6x8 inch is in oils on Birch wood and that is mounted to a varnished wooden box ready for any wall anywhere. (Sold)

Another of my daily paintings.  I must say, I do have a love affair for the plains and the open spaces of my country... There is something wonderful about farmland and the people that make it work, from the farmer to the men and women that labor in the fields, I salute you. This painting is 6x6 inches and painted in oils on Birch wood, it is mounted on a varnished wooden box with no framing required.

"HARVEST TIME" New Project

Driving up the coast was a great time to reflect and to think of "What do I want to paint". I always feel like I need to say something, not just paint to paint. I'm always on a hunt for another way or different way of expressing feelings or moods, all this is, for me, has to happen with the use of color more then what the subject might be. That want, is not always easy to find or obtain... I do a lot of pacing around in my studio like a caged animal, looking or staring at the stark white canvas or gessoed wood panel on my easel, then, colors start to formulate in my minds-eye and my hand, holding my mixing-knife starts this dance with colors that lie glistening on my palette waiting there turn to be blended and shaped into my needs for expressions.  This is a 6x6 inch oil on Birch wood mounted on a varnished wooden box:  For purchase email me "AT"


Coming through Palm Springs heading into Orange County listening to books on tape, letting my mind wonder off and not paying attention to time or distance I'm suddenly aware of this cloud and the softly falling rains.  Reaching for my camera I get one shot knowing this is another painting for me. This one is on a little flat canvas that is going to have to be framed, its size, 12x 16, priced at $400

"TREES" They are always a challenge to paint. I feel like they stay just one step ahead of me, taunting as I stand hunched over my palette of colors preparing my mind and seeing how close I can get this time to mastering their elegance and grace as they stand firmly bound to their mother..."Earth"

Watching the sun go down on the plains is wonderful in itself but then you ad one of the steel beats that roam our lands just out of sight most of the time, now you got something... I had to paint this, feel it out, test the waters if you will, it is the precursor to a much large canvas, that one will be the animal to paint. This one moved along at a nice pace, it's size is 4x12" oil on Birch wood, mounted on a varnished wooden box:  (SOLD)
