Title: Sunrise, National Elk Refuge, Wyoming
Size: 10 x 16
Medium: Oil on Panel
Framed, contact artist for purchase information.

I decided it was time for a little bit of a change from the East Coast. For many years, I went out to Wyoming for vacation, and the sky does amazing things. One early, early morning - I think it was about 5:30 am, we were driving to the Jackson Hole Airport to return home. We had to stop the car, as the sunrise was so amazingly beautiful.

Fall Classes

September is just around the corner, and my schedule of fall classes in Oil painting is filling quickly. If you are interested in taking a class this season, contact me via my website. Here's what's being offered:

Landscape Painting - Tuesday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm. (Class filled)

Independent Study - Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 (class filled)

Beginning Oil Painting - Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 pm: Perfect for someone who has never painted in oils before or has not done it in a while and needs a from the "ground up" approach. Materials, preparing surfaces, brushes and what they can and can't do, mixing paints, obtaining colour harmonies, composition etc. More information is on my website

Still Life Painting - Saturday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm. Still life is a great way to learn how to oil paint; your subject does not move, the lighting is controlled and you can really take your time on the drawing, which is so important. Suitable for beginners through intermediate students.

For more information please visit my website and click on the "Classes" link on the navigation bar:

What an Opening!

The calm before the storm. This is a partial scene of the gallery before the crowds came.

Paul Grecian and I at the opening, during the unveiling of our joint project.

Thank you everyone, who attended the opening of "A Sense of Place"! The turnout was wonderful, everyone had a great time and a lot of work sold for both Paul and I.

We will continue to "replenish the stock" as the month goes on, so if you did not have the opportunity to see the show, it is up through the 4th of September.

Attached are a couple of photos, the first one is of Paul Grecian and I after the unveiling of our joint project works - we both worked off of one "neutral image" - Paul did his photographer's magic and I painted my interpretation of the same scene - it was so much fun, as neither of us saw the other's work until we unveiled them at the show. A photograph of the painting will be posted soon.

Thank you again, everyone for such a great time!
