|Strut, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD|
It's getting to be crow time again here in the midwest. I have had to rely on photos taken a few months ago for my painting references. That's not a problem as I have thousands of them! But it's so exciting to find new crow situations. Looking forward to future photo safaris!

|Is That Decaf?, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD|
I have committed to doing Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 for the month of September. I'm already a day late (actually several) and a dollar short :-) Anyway, here is my first submission and it's kind of a cheat because I didn't paint it today but I did paint it in a day. I have had family in for my Featured Artist Exhibition and have not had the chance to get in my studio. I will do better tomorrow!

|Hitchcock, 8x8, Oil Painting On Hardboard, SOLD|
It all began while taking reference photos for a painting of birds on a telephone wire. I noticed that my photos of crows seemed to have humanistic personalities. I also became interested in the Daily Painting movement. I am not a quick painter and didn't have the luxury of painting every day, but I made a commitment (to myself) to try to paint a small painting in one day once a week. These wonderful crows seemed like a great place to start. This is my first "painting in a day". I have to admit, starting it was very intimidating! Did I mention that I am not a quick painter? But he just seemed to be saying, "I dare you to do it!" So here he is - I have named him "Hitchcock" in an homage to the movie The Birds.

|Buckner & 63rd, 12x12, Oil on Canvas|
Art is a journey.
It is a collection of experiences as unique as the individual creating it.
It begins with our first breath and ends with our last.
It is about finding beauty in every situation, even apparent ugliness,
and recording it for others to see.
