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.

Two Country Boys
I am really enjoying tackling the challenge of painting people, something that I have avoided till now, but we are interesting, aren't we? It is a struggle though, and I am sure it will be a while before I am somewhat happy with the results. The fellow on the right side of this study gave me a lot of grief. I scraped off and repainted several times, put it aside for a few days a number of times. It's ok, but it doesn't have the spontaneity and energy that I am looking for. Sold
