I've been drawing and painting as long as I can remember, copying comic book panels as a kid, a career as a designer and animator, and the last twelve years as a painter. Hope you enjoy the work.

The Grand Cottonwood

6x8 Oil

This small painting was done Saturday during my outdoor class. A student wanted to work on pulling form out of a big cottonwood tree so I said I would paint the same one, soon the entire class was lined up painting the same tree. It's a worthy subject, this tree dominates the Bruce Vento Park here in St. Paul.

I'm off to Colorado on Thursday for the Telluride Plein Air Event, I'll try to post from there.
