I paint full time. That’s all I do. Except for helping my wife keep our lives on track, every day I’m standing at my easel. Oh, and I do get in a round of golf now and then! The creative process to me is magical. I may hear a bit of music, or see an encounter between people, and a painting begins to form in my mind. I’ll quickly jot down a few words about the inspiration and then the design of the painting unfolds. Later I sketch out several designs in advance and pile up three or four tissues ready to transfer to watercolor paper. My dog paintings are loose, with a concentration on the animals’ expressive eyes. The European images portraying romantic moments evoke intimacy.


Unless marked otherwise, my original paintings are matted and framed in black with acrylic. Each is wired and ready to hang on your wall.
