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...

An online GALLERY space to display my art.  Yes! Most of the pieces are for sale - the originals or really nice Gicleé prints.  Unlike the jewelry though, they can't be purchased online.  But hey, don't let that stop you!  If you're interested in purchasing anything, please just drop me a line, using the "Contact" link in the top menu, and we'll work things out.   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 method and colors - you never know what you might find here...

Faces & Figures

Another playground, really; I've just grouped the ones that feature us humans here.  There is some overlap with the next category since some of these are pretty whimsical!

This is what happens when the mind runs wild...

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.

ANCIENT Drawings & sketches

I recently dusted off some old sketchbooks from my teens and twenties...what a trip down memory lane!
