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.
This is a painting that I just finished with my adult class. As I was painting and teaching, I decided to video tape the process. I began with a master painting so that my class and I would all be on the same page at the beginning of the process and so that I could teach the process of measuring using the eye as a unit of measure. I allowed each student to bring in other photos and background with the light coming from the same direction in order to change the hair, costume etc. I have this video for sale on my ebay site. It retails for $20 but is on auction this week on my site. To bid on it, see other paintings, visit my ebay gallery and online auctions click here
