I paint mostly in the impressionistic style. It makes sense based on the influence the European and American artists in the late 1840’s through the end of the century have had on me. I enjoy working thick and fast. I’ll paint from nature, however studio work in this climate seems to work better. I will paint almost any thing; I just love moving paint around.
My favorite subjects are boats, waterscapes, flowers and people. Most of my work is objective, loosely painted, with liberties taken on detail and color. I strive to say more with less.
Paintings are available for purchase. If you would like to visit the gallery, please contact me and we can arrange a showing. Also, we have launched a line of greeting cards now available for purchase. You can learn more about these cards by visiting our crain card company web site.
