Good to be outside painting again!
Last Saturday, I went out painting with friend and fellow painter Richard Hull. We ventured up to Oakley Utah to see if we could find a worthy subject or two for the day's efforts. My first painting subject was chosen based largely on the contract between the muted yellows and greens of the ...

Al Parker: Illustrator-Innovator. This guy's work was amazing!
Al Parker: Illustrator-Innovator is the gorgeous new book from Manuel Auad of Auad Publishing. This gorgeous volume follows up similar treatment given to Albert Dorne and Robert Fawcett. I have been wanting to give this book a proper overview since it arrived in the mail and now is the time.

New project I am working on about Sonoran desert animals.
The book switches from one animal to the next and includes sound words on the right side page to introduce the next animal before you turn the page. The text blocks will go in the large open sky areas on the left hand page. I enjoy doing these sort of nature themed projects and this one should ...

Civil War fiction for Boys' Life
Here are a couple of illustrations I just finished up for Boys' Life Magazine. They are for an historical fiction piece about a young man that witnesses the surrender of Lee and his troops to the forces of General U.S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. In the first spread, The young man is ...

Be careful when you cry wolf...
This is an editorial piece I just finished up for Liberty magazine. The article discusses the negative effects of many religious groups' reactions to societal changes such as the breakdown of the family and traditional marriage. How rather than raising the flag among followers, certain actions ...

New 9x12 oil painting from my recent show. Available at Alderwood FIne Art in SLC, UT
Here is another painting that I finished up for my recent show. This one was painted in the Owen's Valley of California while on a trip with painter friends Richard Hull and John Berry. When we took the trip a few years back, I really didn't feel like I had a grip on outdoor painting at the time ...

Spring is Here! The critters are coming out.
They enjoy munching on the green grass for a time before escaping back to the den when a fox appears. I tried to give the little guys some personality despite the need to portray them as realistically and not stylize too much. I would rather have made them more animated and characterized, ...

Working the atmospheric effects....
This is one of two pieces that will be part of the upcoming 300 Plates show at Art Access. The Show and auction will take place on May 14, 2015, but I needed to finish one of my two plates early in order to be included in the promotional materials. I did the 300 Plates show for the first time ...

Drood Poster- so much fun!
Can I tell you how much I love doing theater posters? This is one I just finished for Footlight Players in Charleston, SC, and once again I had a blast creating the art. The Mystery of Edwin Drood, is an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens that was turned into a musical play by songwriter and ...

You reap what you sow.
This recent illustration is a reminder to me that you are most likely to get what you work the hardest for. Farm iconography has always been appealing to me. Probably because as a young man growing up, I had many opportunities to work the land. We cared for animals, gardened and hauled hay.

New Theater Poster with a nod to Marilyn Monroe
Here is the latest theater poster I have finished for Footlight Players in Charleston, SC, for the romantic comedy Bus Stop. The play was written in 1955 by William Inge and the film version starring Marilyn Monroe and Don Murray was released in 1956. The story takes place as a snowstorm strands ...

Happy New Year Everyone1
Closing out 2014 with a small painting from my recent show. I painted this one on a February afternoon in the western Utah desert near Cedar Fort. It was about 40 degrees when I started the painting and dropped to about 30 before I stopped painting an hour and a half later.

Story
Tagline
I make pictures for a living - and for fun.
Introduction
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
Bragging rights
In over twenty years, I have never been a "starving artist".
