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.
A day to rework old paintings... Every now and then I go through my work and look at things with a fresh eye. This is a painting that I did last year and something about it kept bugging me. I changed the face a bit, hair, chest and then changed the arm and added a cape ( if you can't fix it.... hide it :-) I had made her forearm to long I think but the hand ended up in the right place. Rather than change the arm I just hid it inside the cloak ... brilliant, eh? The colors are still a little off in the photo above. it is actually closer to the coloring in the bottom photo. To Bid
