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 painting was painted after picking some roses out in the back yard and putting them on the kitchen table. Normally I wouldn't think I would like red and orange together but I was struck by how pretty those flowers looked against the terracotta walls in my kitchen in mid afternoon. I had to paint it. This is on sale now in my ebay gallery. To Bid
