I will start teaching a "Beginning Oil Painting" on April 13 at First United Methodist Church, Huntsville AL. We will meet on Monday afternoons from 1:00-3:00 for six weeks. This study will include the principles and elements of art, color mixing and canvas preperation. Students will paint a small study and a larger still life. I'm really looking forward to teaching again!

Recently I have reproduced some giclee prints of a few of my paintings because I have had so many requests for them. I am starting with these jungle animals and four farm animals. I also have two still life and one landscape prints. Prints are for purchase here

For the past few months I have been working on paintings for Huntsville's July Gallery Tour. During the Gallery Tour, I was the featured artist at the Little Green Store. My work can be found there year-round. I've also been painting in preperation for one of my favorite art shows, The Monte Sano Art Festival. This one day event is always held on the third Saturday in September. I always have some sheep paintings at this show.

This is my first attempt at painting glass. It was challenging and I started over more than once. The main thing I learned was to have the background completely finished before starting the glass jar. I thinned the paint with Liquin and built up layers. This let some areas be quite transparent and others became opaque.
