and trees ...

On My Easel

I haven't finished it yet.  I got too much talking in and not enough painting yesterday at the Portfolio Studio, but it's just too much fun to visit and rub Molly's belly some days!  This photo was posted on April 8th.

Story
Tagline
Contemporary landscape and figurative oil painter.
Introduction
I moved to Arizona from Iowa in 2013 with the intention of making art my career.  I happened to get off to a great start when I joined the Gilbert Visual Art League and met so many terrific people who are wonderful artists.  In addition to paintings in oil and watercolor, I have painted public and private murals.  My latest public mural is on the side of the American Legion building in Gilbert, AZ.  It was a very exciting project and I'm looking forward to sharing my art on a large scale through additional projects in the area.  I am currently a member of the San Tan Valley Artists and the Arizona Art Alliance.
