This is my first painting of 2019 and it just happens to be my first commission of the year as well. A photograph by John Snell, newsperson and photographer of Louisiana, is once again the inspiration for my painting.
This is what I’m currently working on. It’s a chilly rainy Sunday and it feels like fall. I’m not ready for fall yet.
Currently on display at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in historic Fountain Square, Indianapolis.
Another new work to be featured at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery’s September exhibit, Trees. Stop in at this unique gallery in historic Fountain Square for the opening on Friday, September 7. I look forward to meeting you!
I just finished this yesterday and although it’s already sold, it will be featured at Trees, an exhibit at Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in Historic Fountain Square starting Friday, September 7. If you’re in Indianapolis, please come check out this exhibit featuring my work and that of Matthew Sheek and Sarah Rae Cote. Hope to see you there!
I just finished this painting, inspired by another of John Snell’s stunning photographs. It will be featured at Hotel Tango on Virginia Ave., near Fountain Square in Indianapolis as part of my solo exhibit. Come check it out on First Friday, September 7, 2018.
I’m working on this for an upcoming exhibit at IU Methodist Hospital, which recently opened an art gallery in their main lobby. This is another painting inspired by a John Snell photograph. Any feedback is welcome!
I started this for fun and then it reminded me that we do have protectors, even when they seem to be absent. This is another one for my Dad, who was my greatest protector when he was alive, and I know is still out there in the universe somewhere looking out for me.
Done and signed, and off to Acceleration Art and Photography Gallery in historic Fountain Square. If I can’t be standing on the beach, I can paint it and look at it while hoping it speaks to someone else.
Western Lake in Grayton Beach Florida, with its iconic stand of pines on the shore, is one of my favorite and most popular scenes to paint. This one sold before I had finished it and is already in its new home in Santa Rosa Beach.
I grew up in New Orleans and my grandparents lived just a block from Lake Pontchartrain. This reminds me of childhood days, looking at the sailboats from the sun parlor upstairs. Sold!
This is a gift for my dear friend David, who is a warrior in the best possible way. I have been wanting to do a painting for him for many years, but couldn’t think if what I wanted to paint until I ran across this quote (I apologize, but I have no idea who said it) I had saved from many years ago:
to the warrior
“You cannot withstand the storm”
and the warrior
“I am the storm.”
The image was inspired by a photograph by New Orleans news anchor and photographer extraordinaire, John Snell, with his permission.
I’m looking for a name for this painting I completed recently. Any ideas?
I’ve been working on this big one for months now and I’m finally starting to like it. Thoughts?
