I started painting in 1995 with Watercolors at the Delaware Art Museum with Poet and Instructor, e. jean lanyon. I lived on Cape Cod for 7 years and learned to paint with Pastels. Around 2017, I started painting with Oils. I have taken workshops with many top artists around the country. I have traveled extensively to paint in Plein Air Events, National Parks, and recently, with Paint Outs sponsored by Eric Rhoads, Publisher of Plein Air Magazine.
I am not a professional artist; however, I do exhibit my paintings in local events and have sold paintings to private collectors and in shows. I have donated paintings to raise money for charity. I have donated paintings to the Delaware Veterans Home and the Word War II Artillery Battery 519 Museum in Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware. I do paintings for my friends, for my fly fishing club, and as gifts.
I just love to paint. It’s a dump truck load of fun. Painting puts me in touch with God’s Creation in a much more meaningful way. I see the light, the values, the color, the mood, the atmosphere. I look at everything that I see as a potential painting. As such, I see, thoroughly, the beauty of it all. Thanks for viewing my work and I hope it has brought you a few moments of joy.
