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.

Limestone Steps

8x10 Oil

Painted this last Saturday after class, I loved the light on these steps and had to give it a try.

Old Twisited Tree

10x10 Oil

Yesterday was the perfect day to paint, sunny warm, no wind, so although I have a ton of studio work to finish up I had to get outside and paint something. I was really happy with the feel of the twisting and torquing of the trunks, it's one of those amazing old trees that is somehow still budding out new leaves.

This Friday the 23rd is the opening of the Spring Art Crawl for 2010. Please come visit me at my studio in the Northern Warehouse, Saint Paul Minnesota.

Spring Grasses

8x10 Oil

This is small painting I did Easter Sunday, it was sunny in the morning but I didn't make it out until later in the day and completely overcast. So rather than the beautiful shadows I intended to paint I concentrated on the variety in the grass color, it really is great for a couple weeks until it all turns green.
