I am an artist working in oils (for now). I make studies of the qualities light using various subjects that interest me, especially animals, landscapes and still lifes. Art is a lifetime journey.

This is a bit of a departure for me. These are maple leaves in the fall. I did it from a photo that I took years ago with a soft focus filter, and I loved the way the colours all melted together. Actually it was a bit tricky to paint, because the photo is a slide and I don't have a projector, so I had to keep holding it up to the light and every once in a while I used a magnifying glass, because I really couldn't see what I was doing.
