This painting started out as something else entirely. It started out very abstract, and it somehow became jungly and floral, which is not something I usually think of doing. It ended up as this dense abstract canopy suggesting jungle or gardens and through a break in the leaves, you can see a distant city. It […]
What a transformation! My art studio in my home is now finished, and being used. I moved across the country about 2 months ago, and had this space seen below to work with for a studio when we moved into the house: And here is the nearly finished result: It’s far better than what I […]
Water Flows is an abstract painting about the ocean and oil spill pollution. The BP oil spill was the worst recent offender, but the infamous Exxon Valdez (recently noting its 25th anniversary) also did unbelievable, on-going damage to the water and the environment in Alaska 25 years ago. Water Flows recently appeared in The Nation […]

Two things have been stolen from me this year. The first was a painting, stolen from me at a NEMAA sponsored art fair in May. That theft was disguised as an art sale… The second theft was less personal because it wasn’t something I’d made, but more personal due to where it happened.
“Many artists are under the false assumption that simply by putting their art online that people will see it. Nothing could be further from the truth. You have to let people know about it.” These are words of wisdom from the awkwardly-titled article, “How to Make Images be Found Online” or how I would word […]
This is an attempt to contact the woman who took this painting home, last seen at Art A Whirl in Minneapolis on May 18th. I need to find you! I had a problem using the Square app, as you know, since you watched me having trouble with it. You should have checked your credit card […]
Some of my first commissions were for realistic portraits of people (and often their dogs). I’m at a point where I’m mostly moving away from realism into art that I consider more meaningful but back when I was in school, and for several years after, most of what I did was in a realistic style. […]
This is a view of one cabana at the Midas Resort in western Belize, a very colorful place. In late 2012 I re-visted that area, this time staying somewhere new, at the Midas Resort. The place is under new ownership and they are improving the property gradually so it was a good choice. Their cabanas […]
