my latest adventure

...started late November 2020 when I picked up some paint brushes and decided to dabble with acrylic paints. It's been about four decades since my one painting class in college, so this feels like an art awakening!  Scary at times, but pretty cool overall.  I'm not sure where this path is leading,

but I'm choosing to follow.

 

Maybe one day, I'll settle into a definite style; but until then, I'll just bounce along and enjoy the ride! 

Thank you for browsing through my as-yet-small, but very eclectic collection of works...

YES!  Most of the pieces are for sale - the originals or really nice Gicleé prints.  If you're interested in purchasing an original or a print, or have a question, simply get in touch using the "contact" link in the top menu.   Thanks!

Landscapes & Nature

There is so much inspiration out there...it will take many lifetimes to paint all that I'd like to!  Most of these works got their beginnings from my own photography, but some are simply places in my head.  I've included a couple of "people scenes" in here too.

Abstract & Semi-abstract Landscapes

Sometimes the feel of a place is evoked through shapes, color and values and very little detail.  I find these quite exciting and liberating to do, especially if I've just finished something with a lot of detail...

Other Abstract Works

My playground!  Experimentations with colors and textures - you never know what you might find here...

Faces, Figures & Fantasy

Another playground, really; I've just grouped the ones that feature us humans here.  From the serious to the totally whimsical!

DIGITAL ART

These images are created on IOS and Windows platforms or a combination.  Like my acrylic paintings, they are inspired by feelings, memories, places, photos, or are just happy accidents as I'm experimenting with colors or textures.  They start as a blank "canvas" and are drawn/painted in freehand.

Drawings and Sketches

I When I recently did the pen drawing you see to the left, it woke something up in my head, so there may be more coming.
