Welcome to my art blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. Although I spent my early childhood in the Catskill Mountains or New York, I now live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies. My goal is to see and respond to the beauty that I find around me with a paint brush, paint and canvas.
I had the pleasure of attending a workshop this weekend given by Jo Anna Arnett as she was one of the featured artists at the Gilcrease Museum for their annual big show. Over the weekend we had the opportunity to both paint outside in the beautiful grounds at the Gilcrease and painted still life sketches as well inside. This is one of the sketches that I did this weekend. I brought it home and did a bit more finishing details on it and here it is. She uses a little bit different method for painting flowers which I enjoyed learning and will enjoy playing around with a bit. I have this on auction on ebay this week or you can buy it now here for $125.
