Corner Gas

30" x 30" oil on canvas

In my area of southern California we have many beautiful rolling hills, ocean views, bright skies and many, many cars. "City Gas" is a painting that represents all of that, without all the cars but with the iconic gas station that keeps us rolling.

The Walk

10" x 8" oil on board

As the title of this blog states, my journey as an artist is an evolution not a destination. I am continuing to push outside of my comfort zone in order to find my own voice in a new and interesting way for me as well as others. Though is is not likely where I will land, I am having a blast with the process. Thank you for all the support I have received through is latest installment, stay tuned!

Girls Of Summer

36" x 48" oil on canvas

I have painted these five girls many times. They were waiting for a sailing class to begin. Though the reference was taken likely 15 years ago, I feel that the subject is timeless but approached it in a more contemporary way.

12" x 16" oil on board

Those that follow my work may have noticed a change in my direction. I feel that in order to grow, I need to try new things.  Currently that means a flatter, more abstracted direction. The play is fun and challenging at the same time!

Spring Fever

10" x 8" oil on board

This is the fourth painting I have done from the same reference photo. I've played with color, composition, design among other things. This might be my favorite of the four. For now, this reference is retired. Ready to tackle some new subjects!

I'm All Ears

12" x 9" oil on board

The reference for this was brought to my attention by a student who was painting from a PMP photo. I was happy to oblige when she asked me to paint it too.

I am often attracted to the expressions on faces and love to capture it in paint. I am grateful for the collectors who see and appreciate the same thing so she is off to a new home!

Rush Street

9'' x 12'' oil on board

This painting is from a photo I took in Chicago three years ago. I loved the composition of this and painting it brought back lovely memories of time spent with family.
