How my logo came into being.

Thursday, June 8th
In October 2016 I started painting.  I had a piece wood that I had slopped some paint on and I decided to use  it for a painting.  My idea was to paint an abstract piece.  I started putting different designs on it.  Suddenly I thought “I’m painting the city of Assisi Italy”.   I worked… [ Read More ]

Shimmering Dream

Tuesday, February 14th
I worked on this painting on and off for a couple of months. I just couldn't get it right. To be sure there are three paintings underneath this one.  There is probably two to $300 worth  paint on it.  Maybe a zillion hours.  (A little exaggeration)    I'm happy it turned out. I want to vacation… [ Read More ]

In late September 2016, I became so agitated and incensed by watching political drama I looked for a meditative outlet. I thought it might be a good idea to take up acrylic painting.  I stopped watching TV.  Period!  None! I taught myself how to paint. Fast forward to February 8, 2017 approximately 120 days into… [ Read More ]

“Coming Home”

Monday, February 6th
The red truck pulling an old airstream is by far the most popular painting I've done to date. Several iterations of this subject have sold. It is a happy subject that brings great joy to the people who have purchased it. It has also been very fun for me to paint this delightful scene. If… [ Read More ]
