Sunrise From the Studio (photo)

“Fall Afternoon” was finally completed on a sheet of Strathmore Plate illustration board.


This was followed by  “Bursting Out” and “Dazzle””, both Hollyhocks, each on a half sheet of Strathmore Water Media board. This board is similar to a paper surface but allows good lifting.




Wishing you all a happy Holiday season

and a wonderful New Year!


I presently have no workshops scheduled. Any future ones will probably be local. I do have 4 digital books, a hard cover book and 2 videos on this site for those who want to see information about how I paint, my materials and more. There is also painting information in the archived issues of the Seasonal Notes from other seasons.

You can view a variety of my paintings on the gallery pages. Many of these are still available for sale. Contact me at if you are interested in information about a particular painting.

Three paintings; Joyful, Contemplation and Homeless, were voted among the top 100 paintings in The Art of Watercolor Magazine’s Fall Issue 47, Readers’ Competition. They received 112, 94 and 39 of the top 100 votes respectively, of 8,024 votes cast.

In the 48th Issue my painting “In Hiding was selected #10 of the top 100.
