Recent Paintings

Painting from life is the most fun. Control of the outcome is not as easy as when painting in the studio. Painting with friends is always fun and gives me a chance to see things from a different point of view.

What to do?

I am always trying new ways of painting and approaching new subjects. I try to put last on the list of my considerations - "will someone buy it?" Painting for me is very personal and cherished time. "I take money for it, but I don't do it for money." I know many painters that when considering a painting or subject, the first question for them is about commerce. I am privileged to be able to exercise my God given gifts ( no matter how humble ) knowing that I am free. What a blessing.
