I still feel like a beginner, even after a lifetime of painting. That’s the wonderful thing about art-making—each blank canvas offers the opportunity to rebuild your world anew. How many job descriptions offer that?
I grew up in rural northeast Oregon and started drawing and painting when very young. I’ve painted large murals all over the country, illustrated books, taught workshops and exhibited in galleries and museums. My art has traveled down two seemingly disparate but parallel paths: one more traditionally realist and the other more abstract. Sometimes they overlap.
Welcome to my daily painting blog.
Here's the deal: most everyday I trek out into the wilds of the woods, or maybe the wilds of my studio to complete a new small painting, usually oil on gessoed hardboard, 5 x 7 or 6 x 6 inches in size. Then I take a picture of it, close my eyes, cross my fingers and push the button that posts it on this blog, floating out into the virtual world.
