About Me

My photo
I began drawing and painting at a very young age and knew early on that I would choose art for my life. I achieved success early on in high school and college in the arts, but after college, I felt compelled to a career in ministry and have spent many fulfilling years helping others find their purpose in life. Through the years, I continued to paint mostly for enjoyment and as an outlet, but in 2007, I realized that an important part of my own life-purpose was creating and painting. The internet, which of course was not available 25 years ago, is such a useful tool for artist, opening doors and providing exposure that would otherwise not be possible. With this new opportunity, I have been pursuing painting and marketing my art whole heartily, usually painting on a daily basis. I live in Tucson, love to jeep, love to paint and study art, and my paintings are often inspired from some remote mountain location in the high desert.

*NEW WORK* Mount Hood by Moon - 30X24

I recently gave several painting lessons to a couple that wanted to enjoy and experience some plein air painting while in France this summer.  I asked them to bring in some photographs that they had taken for us to work from and one of the photos was of a stunning view of Mt Hood, pink sky and moon.  We all had a great time painting.  I ended up with a wonderful 14X11", auctioned it on Ebay and it now belongs a fantastic collector in Montana.  I thought I would paint it again, this time in a large format, so this is what resulted and I will be launching it to Ebay Auction Saturday, May 5th.  Thanks to Jean and Jane for the beautiful photo to work from, and I wish you both the best as you paint in France this summer.
