Yea, I know, I was a little timid with the color. This is a painting that I had laying around, and I reworked it. I darkened the foreground. I added all of the trees at the base of the hill except the 3 on the left. It has a real good sense of depth. Phooey with the idea of making the colors grayer in the background to create depth. There is more than one way to skin a cat. Why would anyone want to skin a cat, anyway!

My latest painting. I got the idea for this painting by doing Aceo miniature paintings. I have found that it is a great way to experiment and come up with new ideas and at the same time produce sell -able work. As oppose to doing sketches and then throwing them away.

Ok, so it isn't really suppose to be an Octopus, it just kind reminds me of one. I had to name it something. I have a twisted sense of humor, so why not! This painting has loads of texture. It has a lot of tissue paper glue on it to give texture. Then the paint is applied on top of the paper.

As of late I have been doing a lot of Abstracts. I have a number of Chicago shows and it is a very contemporary market. There are so many shows in Chicago that you really have to have something different to get peoples attention. My abstacts a a little different in that they have shadows and a lot of different planes or levels (depth). At least I think so.

I've had 7 shows in a row and then vacation, It's been a busy summer so far.

Acrylic landscape painting




outside frame measurement 37 x 25

$450





Boy , I have really let it go Blog and Internet wise. I have been working with a company to try to get prints of my paintings into Hotel chains. This company has 37 of my paintings, so I have been working frantically to replace them. At the same time, I have gotten into a lot of art shows this year. So I have been painting at a furious pace. Last year I had a lot of open weekends where I didn't get in some shows. This year I have gotten in or am on the wait list for almost all the shows I applied to. On numerous weekends I have had to cancel up to 2 shows, because I have gotten into 3 shows on the same weekend. Obviously there is only one of me.

I am busy painting and framing for shows. This is one of the painting I will be dragging across the country, hopefully for not very long. I have been working a a deal with a company that supplies framed prints for hotels. They have 37 of my painting that they are looking to print. Hopefully it will come to something, you just never know how these kind of things will do. Wish me luck!

I have been in the doledrums as far as painting goes. I have been painting,but it has been laborous. I have finally come into the light and am painting at a furious pace. I seem to work best under a deadline.

So,I bought a new computer with windows 7. Then I found out that my real expensive scanner won't work with Windows 7 ,that'a a real bummer.

Well it already happened, I got in 2 art shows ranked in the top 100 in the nation. Both are on the same weekend. Now I will have to cancel one. Summerfair in Cincinnati and 57th Street in Chicago. Summerfair is close, but 57th Street is grandfathered. If I do 57 St, I might be guaranteed of getting back in for at least a couple years. Summerfair keeps jurying me in and out. I was in, then out, in 2 years, then out, now in again. The economy is really down in Cincinnati, maybe it's better in Chicago. This is a tough call.

I am starting to hear back from art shows, it looks like it could be an interesting year. I have gotten in a couple shows that I have been trying to get in for years. I got on the wait list for Talbot Street in Indianapolis. I have been applying for 15 years. I hear it is a Gran-fathered show. At least that is how it has been in the past. Once you are in, your in. I have been paying a $20 jury fee for 15 years and have just now gotten on the wait list. That is pretty sad. I have always sent very bright paintings with reds and yellows.


This year I went with Blues and purples, that are slightly more realistic, and not so much in your face. I also got in the 57st Art Show in Chicago. Hopefully the good news will keep on coming. It is a fickled business. The trick is getting back in the good shows that I did last year and then getting in more good ,new shows this year.


On many weekends, I will apply to 3 shows, hoping to get in one. I might get in 2 and have to cancel one, or I might not get in any of them. You just never know, it depends on who they pick to be on the Jury. It is a Crap Shoot, which makes it hard to plan your year. Wish me luck!

I am busy painting my heart out, getting ready for the coming art show season. It has been a long cold winter , with really high heating bills. We will all be happy to see spring. It is hard to get motivated to paint in the dreary cold of winter. I think some sunshine would brighten my disposition.

This is not a real place,but it is the type of scene that I have surrounding me, as I live in the middle of the rolling hills of southern Indiana. I never paint a scene as it is. I find, I always have to rearrange nature. God made it beautiful, but he didn't intend his work to be put in such a tiny space. So it needs to be rearrange for the sake of balance and symmetry.
