We were on our way to Silverthorne - it was foggy and
quite beautiful leaving the Yampa Valley. This little MG?
with collector plates was cruising in front of us so I 
shot off a few photos(not while driving).
This is a little 6" X 6"
oil on panel
It will be showing at the gallery for February.

"PEZ A DAY #4"

I didn't do what I was suppose to do today.
 Instead I Painted my Valentine. 
If you want to receive a Valentine card in the mail
E-mail me your USPS address. 
You can go to my website
And send an e-mail.
The Valentine is nothing a normal person would paint.
Don't say I didn't warn you.

8"H X 30"W
I painted this for the Palette show at the Steamboat Springs Arts council.
I don't know if it will get in but it was painted specifically for  the show.
The piece is suppose to have taste, texture, sound and smell.
I figured those little pez dispensers would make some sound - the wrappers for touch 
the candy for taste and smell. 
Not sure if it will qualify but it sure was fun to paint.

"PEZ A DAY #6"






"PEZ A DAY #2"


"PEZ A DAY #1"

This is the first installment on a large painting.
It was still wet - I couldn't get good photo shots so this will 
have to do for now. I'm kind of excited about this piece
it's suppose to offer some "comic relief" in the arts.
Thanks and have a great weekend!

I used to teach art up at the community college. 
I found this copy of Jan - my figure drawing model
 and thought it would make a nice thank you. 
She has helped me with my work in so 
many ways that I wanted to thank her in some way.
She was a great model and she's a really good friend.
Thanks for taking a look.


Max is a Tibetan Spaniel who lives in N.C.
He spends lots of time at the beach. 
I've included the photo of Max(below) that I worked from. 
I figured it would be more fun to paint Max at the beach 
instead of on the rock. I hope they like it!
Thanks for looking.

Dog portrait - best friends!
I did this commission for a friend of mine. The dog on the  left 
is Hogan and that's all I really know. 

Monday, January 5, 2015


Hogan is a girl dog - so much for names and gender.
Oh well I hope they like it.
Thanks for following and have a great weekend.


Here's another demo I did for first friday.  
I was on that night. This was suppose to be a black
cow but it turned into a blue - moo. 
Thanks a bunch!


This was another demo I painted at the Gallery for First Friday 
January 2nd. Call me cow crazy it's OK. 
Thanks for looking.

This is a demo I painted at the Auction December 31st.
Remember the last time I got stuck and I said paint a dog and
it will go away. Well this time I decided to paint some cows.
It's working.
My "SWEET RIDE" truck painting sold at auction for 
2400.00(I didn't get one thin dime - the gallery got the dough)
Then I sold 5 paintings in 4 days - boy was I on a roll.
Then on Wednesday the gallery owner took my large
cow painting out of the front window and asked me to
take it home??????!!!!!!!!!!!!
Could things get any weirder? Is that a word?
Anyway I'm looking for some other avenues to sell my 
paintings if you have any ideas or you want to 
become my sales rep let me know.
I need all the help I can get from people 
who like my work and like me!
Thanks a bunch
