I believe that art enriches and informs our lives everyday in many positive ways. Sharing those experiences, whether as an artist or as an appreciator, is part of the pleasure. I welcome your comments and hope you find something of value: a laugh, an insight, a new idea or just a happy moment. Enjoy art!

One of the best phone calls ever came on Christmas morning from the person who received the painting(s) at the left as a gift. He had actually contacted me about purchasing it but, unbeknownest to him, his wife had previously secured it and alerted me that he might call. I had to kinda fib my way through his inquiry letting him know he was a tad late in making his intentions known. After promising him I would consider painting another one I packed this up and mailed it to the giver. I think I was as thrilled as he was on Christmas morning when he called to share his surprise and excitment. Knowing someone loves a painting is a very special feeling....makes me anxious to get back into the studio and paint again!
