I retired from my career in engineering a few years ago to paint full time. I have been painting, drawing, and generally involved in fine art since early childhood. I really love putting down on paper on canvas a subject that I love. Once committed to that paper or canvas; the image is mine forever. My studio is a sunny place filled with paper, canvas, paint and all the accessories in my home.
I'm a quick painter. Most of my pieces take no longer than a few days to render. I draw free hand and paint what I see. My colors are often "loud" . I frequently paint Fall scenes because I love trees. I sell more trees than anything else.
When I sell a piece, it is almost always to someone who feels a kinship to the place in the image. Often men buy my snow scenes because they remind them of places they have hunted. Since I often paint local scenes, it is possible that it is their hunting site.
